PROTOTYPE 2 is a game that has the potential to be great as the first in the series showed a lot of potential but fell short of being truly great. Activision has confirmed that PROTOTYPE 2 — Radical Entertainment’s highly anticipated open-world/action thriller — will be playable for the first time ever at New York Comic-Con.
Radical will also be showcasing part two of the game’s stunning three-part CG trailer series on the official site tomorrow, Friday October 14th, and has revealed the innovative online Infected monster creation tool PROTOTHINGY.
“A few months ago, we let our fans see PROTOTYPE 2 for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con, and now we have put together two great playable missions for New York Comic-Con,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. ”The first mission touches lightly on Heller’s story, while the other is something we call a ‘Rampage Challenge’ — where it’s all about the action and players can compete for the best score. Both missions will give fans an initial taste of what’s in store when the final version of PROTOTYPE 2 comes out in April next year.”
And if that’s not enough, the PROTOTYPE 2 team will also be hosting a Twitter sweepstakes during New York Comic-Con for a chance to win a one-of-a-kind, James Heller custom-skinned Xbox 360 . Users who Tweet any message containing #PROTOTYPE2between 12:00 AM (Eastern) Thursday, Oct. 13 through 11:59 PM (Eastern) Sunday, Oct. 16 will be automatically entered into a random drawing to claim the prize. The lucky winner will be announced at midnight on Sunday, Oct. 16. Additionally, the team from Radical will be on-site at the show handing out assorted PROTOTYPE 2 goodies, including t-shirts, posters, giant foam Heller Blade Arms and more!
