Super Soldiers Are Super: New Prototype Footage

Release new screenshots, you loons!

Prototype is due to appear early next month, and boy do we like the look of the flesh-tearing, car-throwing, super-soldier-exploding madness. If it can really deliver on the non-stop carnage the trailers imply, then cor, it could be splendid. There’s a new trailer showing off various enemies to splode, including the tentacular Hydra and the mysterious Specialist. There’s also another trailer with the president of developer Radical, Kelly Zmak (which should be a word used in comics when someone’s punching), chattering about why he likes it. Guess where the videos are. GUESS.

Prototype: The Story


Do we care about the story of ultra-death freeformer, Prototype? Perhaps not, but it still has one: a tale of memories sucked out of brains the hard way, and New York City as an evolving character. It’s explained below the cut, and it might just surprise us with phrases like “the buildings themselves become infected.” The story trailer also suggests that there’s some level of interactivity in piecing together the protagonist’s memories, as well as introducing two new characters: Alex’s sister, and a helpful pathologist. Thanks, Pathologist.

Typical Hoodie: New Prototype Trailer

This is what videogames look like.

Each new Prototype trailer has us giggling like children at the gorish ludicrosity of it all. Running up the sides of buildings, caving in heads on the sides of buildings, throwing cars at helicopters, morphing into a giant fisted madman. These are just some of the things we do when we’ve watched them. A little joke for you there. Below is the latest trailer, which gives you a top 10 reasons why you should want to play it. And frankly, they had us with “Projectile Dysfunction”.

Prototype: NYCC (Much) Cop?

KER-DEAD!
[I was at New York Comic Con last week. Between doing what I do at comic cons (i.e. drink), I found some time to have a quick crack at a load of games on the floor. Quick cracks. I’m going to write up the ones that stick in the memory.]

A kid in his early/mid teens – 14 tops – is watching me play for all my time with Prototype. As we walk away, he virtually gasps “I am so getting that”. I can only agree, and I’m not that surprised that he said so. Despite being an adult game, it’s the sort of adult game that not-too-strictly-adults are going to adore.

NYCC: Prototype


Prototype is back on course for release in June, and has had a big showing at NYCC. It’s perhaps a little less impressive than it was when we saw it a year ago, but hopefully all that extra time will pay off. The three-way biologic war on the streets of NYC still looks ludicrously violent. I think Gillen is going to unload some thoughts on this next week, having seen it at the show, so I’ll leave you to the walkthroughs.

Whee! Prototype For Summer ’09


Hulk-meets-GTA open-world absorb ’em up Prototype has been heavily delayed, with the game now due for release in the summer of 2009. (Assuming we have a summer this year, and that hasn’t been cancelled due to budgetary constraints). The free-running organ-burster remains a contender for high accolades of action-game excellence, especially when contrasted with the other lacklustre run-and-jump games from the past 18 months. The pedigree of developers Radical Entertainment is pretty good, having impressed us with Hulk: Ultimate Destruction back in the previous console generation. All this means, of course, that the hype machine has been set spinning again with a superb action-splatter trailer to kick off the year, which is posted after the jump. The staged demo of this game at GDC 2008 was one of the highlights of the conference for me, and I still have high hopes for the finished game.

Prototype Co-op Not Dead?


Videogaming247 have scooped a chat with Prototype bossman Tim Bennison, and he revealed that the supposedly canned multiplayer mode might still find its way into the game.

“We’re trying to create the best possible single player experience. It’s an origin story and if we are successful, we’re hoping it’s the start of a franchise. But to do this, you’ve got to establish a great core single player experience. Having said that, we are still evaluating multiplayer to see if we can make it work in our development schedule.”

Prototype was due to be out for Christmas, but now sits in May 2009. As we’ve previously mentioned, we’re fairly excited about this game and co-op could potentially be icing on some kind of special cake.
