"Get In The Game" Promotion For Prototype 2

Usually, the phrase "get in the game" can't be taken literally.

And while we're still a few steps shy of virtual reality, GameStop and developer Radical Entertainment invites you to become part of the upcoming sequel, Prototype 2.

The retailer and Activision Publishing has announced their "Get in the Game" pre-order promotion for Radical's title. For US and Canadian players who are 18 years of age or older, they can pre-order Prototype 2 at GameStop between now and September 1, and go online to enter a random drawing. The grand prize winner will net a trip for two to Radical Entertainment's studios in Vancouver, Canada and become a character in the sequel. That's right, they'll put you into the game. Said Radical boss Ken Rosman:

"Thanks to this great partnership with Activision and GameStop, we have an incredible opportunity to offer gamers something truly unique. In addition to just seeing themselves in the game, the winners will actually be able to locate their virtual selves and shape-shift Sgt. James Heller into their likeness. Radical wouldn't be where it is today without our fans, and this is just another way for us to thank them for all their support."

The sequel features an all new infected protagonist in Sgt. James Heller, and takes place in a post-viral New York Zero. You will build up "a vast genetic arsenal of deadly, biological weapons and abilities as they hunt and consume their way toward the ultimate goal - to kill...Alex...Mercer!" If this intrigues you, and you'd love to be part of the game, pre-order and enter to win. We hear Canada is pretty this time of year.

Interested US gamers can go here for rules and details, and Canadian fans can go here. Good luck!

Cool beans!

Shame it has to be just for pre-orders, but I do understand why.

Although, I wish EA had thought of this instead of Anti-vision, seeing that it's almost their own motto.

Yeah I liked the gameplay of the 1st so I'm hoping it gets a decent story to go along with updated gameplay. Didn't like Mercer that much though as a character his personality was really bland, and even though we've seen the "I'm gonna get you sucka for killin my family revenge story already", we all know how fun it is to play as the angry guy that just want to kill every damn thing that moves.

I'm sure the east coast of Canada is wonderful, but over here on the west coast it's either freezing or too hot :P
