PROTOTYPE tells the story of Alex Mercer - a man haunted by his
past, fighting a secret war in New York City. As the action
spirals out of control, a conspiracy tied to his origins
threatens the future of mankind itself. Mercer’s amazing
shapeshifting powers allow him to become an exact replica and
steal the skills or powers of anyone who crosses his path.
In Prototype, players take control of Alex Mercer – a dark,
mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past, hell-bent on
the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely
York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming
gets in his way.
Deceive or Destroy gameplay allows gamers the choice to either
with the population and covertly progress through the story, or
unleash Alex’s powers, and move through New York City like a
slaughterhouse, taking control of military vehicles, and causing
destruction at every turn.
