Sierra has released the above trailer today for Prototype, the open world third-person shapeshifting game from Radical Entertainment. Just in case this game hasn’t hit your radar yet, below is a little about it from the announcement press release a while back.
PROTOTYPE tells the story of Alex Mercer – a man haunted by his past, fighting a secret war in New York City. As the action spirals out of control, a conspiracy tied to his origins threatens the future of mankind itself. Mercer’s amazing shapeshifting powers allow him to become an exact replica and steal the skills or powers of anyone who crosses his path.
Kelly Zmak, president of Radical Entertainment: “Radical Entertainment set out to create the most dynamic video game character ever imagined. From free-form movement to over-the-top combat action; PROTOTYPE can climb or wall-run across any surface, jump 30 stories high, and destroy anything that crosses his path. Our team at Radical has built upon the technology that drove our previous best-selling games and now has the freedom to dream big and imagine a powerful character in a sprawling city like New York, cloaked in a conspiracy and ripped from today’s headlines.”
Prototype is currently planned for summer of ’08 for PS3, PC and the 360.
