Prototype and Prototype 2 might be heading to PS4


Screaming and crying, the Prototype way
Jun 23
 
Back in 2009, a brutal war was raging in gaming. No, not Xbox vs PlayStation, or Call of Duty vs Halo. It was worse. So much worse. A war centred around mediocre open-world superhero games. On the left, we had Sucker Pun...

Review: Prototype 2


Apr 23
 
Last generation, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Second Sight had the ill luck to release at the same time, despite sharing an otherwise unique concept. Games involving psychic powers and telekinesis were few and far bet...




Prototype 2 shows the power of revenge (and Johnny Cash)


Apr 16
 
Prototype 2 is almost upon us, and it needed just one more thing to complete the pre-launch hype -- an "emotional" trailer with suitably melancholy music. It's an old trick, but I still find it effective, so this live-action video featuring Johnny Cash's cover of "Hurt" is okay by me.  The game launches on April 24 for Xbox 360 and PS3, and I'm very much looking forward to it.




Activision opens Prototype 2 merchandise store


Mar 15
 
As much as I loved Prototype, I had no idea it did well enough to get a sequel. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. Now, I find out it's a big enough deal to get its own clothing line? Was I asleep when that happene...




Prototype 2's Supersoldiers sound delightful


Feb 24
 
Making a supersoldier is tricky, just look at all the failed attempts to make another Captain America. In Prototype 2, Sgt. James Heller will be facing a whole army of them, so color me impressed. Using a new strain of the Bl...




Preview: Ripping sh*t up in the first hour of Prototype 2


Feb 16
 
At a press event last week Activision pointed us to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 kiosks, telling us to have at it. They let us go nuts with the full first hour or so of Radical Entertainment's Prototype 2, uninterrupted, for the first time. Nice. I got a drink, ate some cake pops, and settled in for my first taste of this ragey, f-bomby, power-trippy sandbox follow-up to the 2009 original.

Early Prototype 2 buyers to get 'Radnet Edition' upgrade


Jan 31
 
Activision is one of the few big publishers to shy away from putting online passes in its games, but with Prototype 2, it would seem the company is definitely looking to maximize brand new purchases. Early adopters of the ga...




Prototype 2 getting 'Hardened Steel' Best Buy bonus


Jan 27
 
If you pre-order Prototype 2 at Best Buy, you'll be getting your hands on the "Hardened Steel" bonus. From what I can tell, this bonus almost breaks the game by making Heller near-invincible whenever he gets into a military ...




Prototype 2: Better side missions, expanded gameplay


Jan 11
 
If gamers had one lasting complaint about Prototype, it's that the gameplay could get pretty repetitive. Side missions were particularly galling, featuring drab time trial exercises that felt like petty wastes of time. While ...




Prototype 2: A more engaging, funnier protagonist


Jan 11
 
Destructoid has been chatting to Radical design directer Matt Armstrong about the studio's upcoming sequel, Prototype 2. I'm a fan of the original, but fully admit it had some flaws, and I wanted to see what improvements were...

Radical Entertainment talks Prototype 2 at gamescom


Aug 20
 
As a guy who lives in a city that used to be divided into two areas by a wall, it intrigues me very much to see how the storyline of Prototype 2 is developping. I had a chat with the studio head of Radical Entertainment abou...




Prototype 2 screens are full of sharp, pointy things


Aug 19
 
You want screenshots for Prototype 2? No? Tough bollocks, son, you got 'em anyway! There's plenty of death and destruction in these images, as James Heller chews through half a city with his mutant virus arms. Fire, claws, knives, there's basically everything you need to commit your favorite brand of genocide.  I am so stoked for this game.




Latest Prototype 2 trailer gets you up to speed

Prototype 2 gets 'Evolution of Awesome' trailer


Aug 16
 
With a trailer that's called itself "Evolution of Awesome," I was expecting a bit more from Prototype 2's marketing department. Instead, we get that Valkyries tune with a slow-motion image of James Heller jumping toward a he...




Get in the Game: Become a character in Prototype 2


Aug 05
 
My mind is always blown at these kinds of promotions. It could be seen as risky to open up the playing field for anyone to become a character in your game. What if they're really scary or strange? Do you want that in your gam...

Jul 20

Prototype 2 has a Father's Day message for you


Jun 17
 
I promised myself that if the powers that be continued pumping out Prototype 2-themed cards for every single holiday, I'd make sure we posted them all. And, it looks like they're actually following through. F*ck! So here you are, fathers everywhere. Enjoy (?) this ridiculous image.
