Prototype 2: Great New Trailer Gets Us Excited
Some trailers can be very instructive. Now, there is a new developer diary video for Prototype 2. This one is called “Hunt. Kill. Become.” The Radical Entertainment talks about the functionality and details in the game’s new hunting mechanic in its gameplay. From what I have seen of the diary video, Prototype looks to be more fun and outrageous than the original, just the way I like it.
When Heller is able to access Black.Net, which is Blackwatch/Gentek’s encrypeted data network, he finds out more about the targets. He also disguises himself as either a Blackwatch soldier or a Gentek scientist. Basically, Heller is able to infiltrate through Black.net. It is also through this network that he finds some case files on specific Blackwatch/Gentek operations. After Heller hunts down his targets, he shuts down the operation. Players get their rewards whenever they are able to shut down Blackwatch/Gentek operations together with Heller. They also get to customize Heller’s powers and abilities using Mutations, which are specific upgrades that help them get more out of the character.
Heller, by the way, is able to hunt down his targets by sending out some kind of pulse into the open world setting that is New York Zero. That pulse may be compared to a submarine sonar pulse for lack of anything else to compare it to. When the pulse hits a target, it bounces back to Heller who is able to track his target.
You will find all of this in the video production diary. Video diaries are a lot more in-depth than trailers and I just love them.
