Prototype 2 coming to NYCC

New York-set game set for New York Comic-Con.

Prototype 2 is set in New York City, so naturally, it’s coming to this weekend’s New York Comic-Con, where it will be playable to the public for the first time ever.

Activision’s lining up quite a few Prorotype 2 events for the convention.

The second part of the Prototype 2‘s three-part CG trailer series will be released on Friday, October 14.

Protothingy, a Facebook-based Infected monster creation tool, launched today, allowing users to mix and match body parts to create silly beasts. Make yours here.

Activision will host a Twitter sweepstakes during Comic-Con for a chance to win a “one-of-a-kind, James Heller custom-skinned Xbox 360.” Tweet any message containing #PROTOTYPE2 between 12:00 a.m. eastern on Thursday October 13 through 11:59 p.m. eastern on Sunday, October 16 and you’ll be entered in a random drawing to win the console. The winner will be announced on at midnight on October 16.

And of course, visit Activision’s booth during Comic-Con, and you’ll be gifted with Prototype 2-branded “t-shirts, posters, giant foam Heller Blade Arm and more.” Free stuff is always good.
