Prototype 2 will be available in both standard and “Radnet” editions when it launches in April, Activision has announced. The Radnet edition will come bundled with free access to Radnet, a network similar to Mass Effect 2‘s Cerberus, where 55 free pieces of additional content will be released over the seven weeks following the game’s launch. The Radnet edition will be available as a free upgrade from the standard edition “while supplies last.”
Radnet DLC includes bonus mutations, in-game events, challenges, avatar items, dynamic themes, and behind-the-scenes videos. If you participate in all of Radnet’s weekly events, “the ultimate shape-shifting reward” – be revealed in March – will be unlocked.
“Radical Entertainment has always focused on bringing long lasting fun to its fans, and Prototype 2‘s Radnet content is our way of rewarding the game’s most loyal supporters – the early adopters, the one’s who will replay it over and over again,” said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. “We think this is great because we’re giving our fans hours of additional gameplay outside Prototype 2‘s main narrative, and cool rewards – all delivered weekly following the game’s launch!”
A trailer for Radnet can be seen below. A Q&A about the network can be read at Radical Entertainment’s website.
Prototype 2 is due for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on April 24, 2012.
