E3 2011: New ‘Prototype 2’ Trailer Released

With E3 being this week you can expect a slew of new trailers, screenshots and major announcements from video game producers, publishers and hardware companies. Among those announcements is Activision’s release of the new trailer for its upcoming title Prototype 2.

In case you’re not familiar with the game, it deals with the exploits of Alex Mercer (voiced by Barry Pepper) who wakes up on a morgue slab with no memory. Alex escapes and sets out to recover his memory and find out exactly what occurred. He soon discovers he now possesses powerful shapeshifting abilities that grant him superhuman strength, speed, agility, durability, weaponry and the ability to “consume” people to gain their memories, skills and appearance.

Alex is forced to track down and consume those related to the conspiracy in order to uncover the truth. During his quest, Alex must face and overcome both the military charged with containing the incident and a horde of infected monsters who’s only thought is killing him. And that, my friends, is the basis for some great action.

Click through to check out all the awesome action in this brand new trailer. Look for Prototype 2 to hit stores sometime in 2012.
