Radical Entertainment peels back the curtain on the inspiration behind creating PROTOTYPE 2’s dangerous open-world playground known as New York Zero. Set fourteen months after the catastrophic events of the original game, the New York that humanity has come to know and love over the years no longer exists…it’s now simply referred to as NYZ. The original Prototype was one of our favorite games and Prototype 2 looks to be even better.
NYZ has been designed from the ground up to enhance Prototype 2’s signature action-packed sandbox-style gameplay, and as a mechanism to tell the game’s core narrative and side story missions. As Sgt. James Heller, players will progress through NYZ’s three distinct zones, from the heavily militarized Green Zone, to the converted refugee and triage shanty town camps of the industrial Yellow Zone, all the way to the Red Zone – where the virus has completely overrun the city’s shattered skyscrapers and population with infection and the risk of death at every corner.
Prototype 2 releases worldwide on April 24, 2012.
