According to an interesting press release, Sierra Entertainment has announced a game called Prototype, with story that includes conspiracy, deception and deadly shape shifting action. This certainly sounds like a lot of fun.
The game is developed by Radical Entertainment, and the story goes around Alex Mercer, "a man haunted by his past, fighting a secret war in New York City." The interesting thing is the announcement of Mercer's shape-shifting power that will allow him to be an exact replica of anyone who crosses his path.
"Radical Entertainment set out to create the most dynamic video game character ever imagined. From free-form movement to over-the-top combat action; Prototype can climb or wall-run across any surface, jump 30 stories high, and destroy anything that crosses his path," said Kelly Zmak, president of Radical Entertainment.
The Prototype is scheduled for Summer 2008, and will be available for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
