Prototype smashes EU retail on June 5, America on June 9


Virtual NYC citizens better get some insurance now. Activision's Prototype finally has a release date: June 5 in Europe, and June 9 in North America. The super-powered action game has you playing as Alex Mercer, a genetically mutated bio-weapon that has conveniently lost his memory. Using ridiculously over-the-top superpowers, players will fight other mutants and zombies in order to -- you guessed it -- uncover a conspiracy that's "40 years in the making."

Activision has just released the first half of the game's cinematic intro (embedded above) and a few new screenshots to peruse. If that isn't enough for you, check out our hands-on preview.
