New York becomes an urban playground in this open world action title from Activision with a superhuman twist.

Though many games have given players the opportunity to explore the streets of New York, Prototype goes one step further, with players using the super powers of government experiment Alex Mercer to uncover every corner of the Big Apple. As a genetically mutated shape-shifter, Alex has no recollection of his past life, tearing through the city to discover the reason for his being and stop the spread of a mutating virus across the population.

Much like superhero titles such as Crackdown, players can bounce across the city with ease, storming up the sides of skyscrapers and destroying city blocks on a whim. Alex also has a unique shape shifting ability at his disposal, allowing him to consume the abilities and memories of his fallen enemies. Alex can lift vehicles, tear up lampposts and even disguise himself with the forms of those he’s consumed.

The Big Apple may be a common source for the gaming world, but with Alex’s astounding abilities at a player’s disposal the whole city has been opened up in ways not seen before.


A Fresh Take on a Stale Genre – You are Alex Mercer, an all-new anti-hero framed within a conspiracy-drenched storyline that gives open-world/action games a fresh and well deserved kick in the pants. With no memory of his past, Alex Mercer’s sole mission is to find out who’s responsible for what’s happened to him…and make them pay. As you evolve Alex and his shape-shifting abilities throughout the story, you'll learn more about his tortured past while combating the lethal Blackwatch forces and the Infected.

Deadly Shape-Shifting Action – Alex Mercer is a shape-shifter with amazing powers of combat, destruction and deception. Alex can consume and absorb any living person he comes into contact with, assuming their identity, and gain access to their memories and special abilities/powers, each time bringing him closer to solving the growing conspiracy. Further, Alex can mix and match genetic traits to create incredibly deadly biological weapons, including razor sharp claws, blades, armored skin, shields and more.

‘Deceive or Destroy’ Gameplay – You have the choice to blend in with the crowded population and covertly progress through the story, or fully unleash Alex’s powers, moving through New York City as a walking slaughterhouse.

Unprecedented Locomotion and Agility – Alex Mercer’s movement is based on the art of ‘Parkour’. Being more than human, nothing in PROTOTYPE’s bustling New York City setting is an obstacle for Alex.

New York City is Your Hunting Ground – PROTOTYPE’s open-world playground is New York City done right! The city is jam-packed with thousands of pedestrians, hundreds of cars and is truly a bustling, thriving representation of the world’s most famous city.
