New York has been quarantined as a deadly plague lays siege to the city, transforming its denizens into horrific human-munching mutants. Into this war zone strides Alex Mercer, a hoodie-wearing shape-shifter with the ability to absorb the memories and abilities of anyone he 'consumes'. Before you know it, he's got the ability to leap small buildings, run at up to 60mph and warp his body into Terminator 2-style weaponry to take on enemy helicopters and tanks. That, in a nutshell, is the intriguing storyline behind Prototype, a new game heading for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC later this year.
