In the original Prototype, you played as Alex Mercer, but the tables are turned in the sequel as you control Sergeant James Heller. Your sole mission: finish off the protagonist of the first title by becoming a a mutated monster.

Prototype 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original Prototype and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. As the game's all-new infected protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, players will cut a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero (or more simply...NYZ) with unparalleled locomotion, building up a vast genetic arsenal of deadly, biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal - to kill...Alex...Mercer!

With mere weeks to go until Prototype 2's launch, Radical Entertainment reveals even more exciting news to sate fans' appetites as they wait to pick-up their copy of the game.

First up is the latest entry in the Prototype digital comic series from Dark Horse Comics titled, 'The Survivors Part 1.' Additionally, Radical has launched the official Prototype merchandise store where fans all over the world can purchase all the game-themed accoutrement any hardcore Prototype-er could ask for. 

The third issue in the new Prototype comic series from leading publisher of gaming comics and graphic novels, Dark Horse Comics, 'The Survivors Part 1' continues to bridge the gap between the suspenseful conclusion of the original game and the action-packed beginning of Prototype 2.  Illustrated by Chris Staggs, 'The Survivors' follows a small group of New York residents trying to escape the city after it has been transformed into NYZ following the second outbreak of Mercer's Blacklight virus.  Fans can get their digital hands on this latest, and every prior issue of the Prototype comic series

Also announced was the launch of the official Prototype merchandise store. Featuring the latest Prototype themed apparel, art and accessories (with new additions being added on a regular basis); the store has everything fans, gamers, New York Zero locals and Blackwatch soldiers need to survive the mean streets of NYZ.  Whether you support Heller or Mercer in the upcoming showdown, or if you're simply a fan of the Blackwatch's sense of style, the merchandise store has got you covered. 

Prototype 2 is currently rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB, with an expected "M" (Mature - Content that may be suitable for persons 17 and older) rating.
