Prototype 2 will have you kill Alex Mercer in 2012. First full trailer inside

The debut trailer for Prototype 2 was recently unveiled on the VGA 2010 awards show. The video introduces a new protagonist, Sergeant James Heller and reveals that your goal will be to murder the hero of the original title, Alex Mercer.

We love the idea of introducing a new shapeshifter with a chip on his shoulder. Too bad it is scheduled to release in 2012.

    Heres to hoping that the boss fights won't all involve only running around and throwing stuff at you enemy... PLEASE Activision then maybe I won't hate you so much...

    I only wish that it weren't in NYC, although hopefully it will have co-op.

    this reminds me of the game they put out after the original half life with your whole goal being to kill gordon freeman.
  • Cruddi - December 12, 2010 5:52 p.m.

    NOOOO Alex Mercer was bad ass... I hope you don't kill him, but join him which could lead to some VERY fun CO-OP in Prototype 3 if they make one
  • Chaoscoolperson - December 12, 2010 5:43 p.m.

    I knew they'd make a sequel
  • Chaoscoolperson - December 12, 2010 5:42 p.m.

    Sounds like the soundtrack from inception, I wonder if the plot will be just as convoluted :P
  • AngryScotsman - December 12, 2010 10:33 a.m.

    @KillerQueen Yeah, and the fact that they only showed the player character in obstructive full-body armour only makes it more dubious that Jimmy will be our hero.

    Okay, Prototype was a nice game. This looks cool too, but how is it any different than the first? I smell a Crackdown 2.

    Inception tuba?
  • Sleepingdragon - December 12, 2010 7:43 a.m.

    i can see the scene now "New Guy: U killed my wife and kid and etc. now Ill kill u!!!1 Alex Mercer: Its not my fault come and join me so we can destroy evil corporation/ evil entity that started it New Guy: Hmmmmmm Ok Alex Mercer has joined ur party"
  • TRAVthe3RD - December 12, 2010 7:09 a.m.

    is the guy in the hood the new protagonist or alex? cuz if your new guy is in a hood and such i find that pretty lazy design how about some creativity? a minor complaint seeing as you can take the form or any other person in the game lol but still
  • Larinah - December 12, 2010 6:54 a.m.

    I was a big fan of the first Prototype, but I'll bet there'll be a crazy plot twist like halfway through the game where you start having to team up with Alex to face the ones that was supposed to be helping the Sgt.
