Sierra Entertainment has announced Prototype, a new “open world” title in development by Radical Entertainment (Hulk: Ultimate Destruction) for release this summer on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. While few details concerning the upcoming title have been revealed, a statement announcing Prototype promises that the title will “raise the bar” for open world-style games, and will feature “a completely new kind of open-world game, featuring a rich story line of conspiracy, deception and deadly shape shifting action.” Prototype tells the story of Alex Mercer, a mysterious man who according to Sierra is “haunted by his past, fighting a secret war in New York City.” Mercer also has the unique ability to “become an exact replica and steal the skills or powers of anyone who crosses his path,” no doubt reflecting one of Prototype's key gameplay elements. In developing Mercer, Radical Entertainment's president Kelly Zmak notes that the studio “set out to create the most dynamic video game character ever imagined.” “Radical Entertainment has a strong pedigree of critically acclaimed, best-selling open-world games, and Sierra Entertainment is excited to see them craft an original game that has already fired-up the imaginations of press and gamers alike,” said Martin Tremblay, president of Sierra's Worldwide Studios. “Prototype represents the strength of Sierra Entertainment’s internal studios and our commitment to creating original and exciting games.”
