Activision is giving gamers 55 reasons to buy a new copy of Prototype 2 when it launches on April 24. The publisher today announced the Prototype 2 Radnet Edition, which will include access to 55 pieces of downloadable content available at no extra cost.
According to Activision, every gamer who preorders a copy of Prototype 2 for either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will score access to Radnet and its content through a onetime-use code. Additionally, the content will be available to those who pick up a new copy of the game at launch, though Activision warned these copies will be "limited."
Gamers who redeem the code will score 55 pieces of free DLC in the form of in-game events, challenges, avatar items, themes, and behind-the-scenes videos. These content drops will arrive in weekly dispatches beginning with the launch of the game on April 24 and running through June 7.
Additionally, Activision said an "ultimate shape-shifting reward" is part of the deal, but the publisher isn't sharing information about it until March. Of note, Activision said all Radnet content takes place entirely outside of Prototype 2's main story.
Activision did not say if the Radnet content will be made available at a later date for stand-alone purchase, and as of press time, the publisher had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.
Prototype 2 is the sequel to 2009's well-received open-world action adventure title from Radical Entertainment. It is set in the fictional world of New York Zero and casts players as Sgt. James Heller, an ex-soldier tasked with taking down the protagonist of the original game, Alex Mercer.
