The second game in the series picks up a bit after the first one leaves off, features a completely new main character... and a new villain. For fans of the title, there are a lot of questions as to just how the virus-made-man Alex Mercer becomes a bad guy at all. Not to mention how he gives rise to the new protagonist, James Heller. This mini-series will seek to answer some of those, as well set the stage for the new adventure.
What say you Dave Marshall, editor at Dark Horse?
“Sgt. James Heller’s heart wrenching backstory meshed with the sheer amount of over-the-top shape-shifting action inPROTOTYPE 2 lend themselves perfectly to a comic book series,” said Dave Marshall, Editor, Dark Horse Comics. “We worked extremely close with Radical Entertainment’s story team for PROTOTYPE 2, and can’t wait to visually walk fans through the many dark secrets strewn throughout the tattered world of New York Zero!”
Sounds like some good stuff. The source material is extremely solid already and Dark Horse has an excellent history with horror; all things considered I'm pretty excited about the collaboration. So fire up those tablets (and computers) on 2/15 for the comic, and your consoles on 4/24 for the game.
