Well, you won’t actually play as Alex Mercer, but you’ll be able to look just like him. For those players who pre-order the game or purchase the RADNET edition, you’ll be able to partake in weekly challenges and events that will lead up to the eventual unlocking of the Alex Mercer skin.
Prototype 2’s RADNET is a sort of content drop system, providing players with new things to do each week, such as special challenges and events. When these challenges and events are completed, players will be rewarded with new content, such as mutations and making-of videos. In addition to 55 pieces of content, their will be pieces of the skin that will eventually come together to become Alex Mercer.
Check out the skin in action below:

In Prototype 2, you play as Sergeant James Heller, a soldier infected by the Blacklight virus. After surviving an encounter with Mercer (the protagonist of the first game), Heller seeks revenge for the loss of his family and looks to destroy the virus that has ravaged NYC. He’ll use any means neccesary to stop Mercer, even if it means using the virus..
Look for the game in stores on April 24.
