Entertainment has announced a new move for Prototype 2, but it's only
for ass-kicking early birds who—quite literally—want to kick a
little ass in the upcoming sequel. Introducing the Bio-Bomb Butt
Kicker, Sgt. James Heller's new pelvic-shattering ability—and yours
free with every Prototype 2 pre-order from now until April 23 at
The move is described by Activision as
an alternate version of protagonist Sgt. James Heller's Bio-Bomb
ability which, in its slightly less embarrassing form, allows players to infect
enemies, toss them away, and watch from a safe distance as the
victims sprout tentacles and gobble up everything within radius.
“Butt Kicker is a fun twist on
Heller’s already over-the-top new Bio-Bomb ability,” explained
Radical Entertainment head Ken Rosman. “Rather than just throwing
enemies once Heller has infected them with the Blacklight virus; Butt
Kicker allows Heller to drop-kick punt them across the map, turning
enemies into projectiles that rain down devastation from above.”
Sure it's no nut-punch, but swap out
the jacket for a purple hoodie and this could have easily been a
scene from Steelport. Not that we're complaining; Sgt. Heller looks
like he needs a little more fun.
Prototype 2 ass-kicks its way onto PS3,
Xbox 360, and PC on April 24 in North America, and April 27 in the UK.
