Radical Entertainment and GameStop kick things into high gear with the announcement of an exclusive* pre-order bonus for PROTOTYPE 2 – Sgt. James Heller’s Bio-Bomb Butt Kicker ability. Planned to launch April 24, 2012 from Activision, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision, North American fans who pre-order the game at GameStop between January 1, 2012 and April 23, 2012 will unlock this alternate version of one of PROTOTYPE 2’s unique, new viral-powered abilities, the Bio-Bomb.
“Butt Kicker is a fun twist on Heller’s already over-the-top new Bio-Bomb ability,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “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.”
The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s best-selling open-world action game of 2009, 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 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!
