Story Recap


Alex J. Mercer was the former researcher of the Blacklight project at Gentek, a genetic engineering company based in New York that produced and altered DNA to create the Blacklight virus. In 1963, Gentek infected and destroy the town of Hope, Idaho using the Blacklight virus, which Blackwatch, a black ops military force to contain virus outbreaks by any mean necessary, found one sole survivor named, Elizabeth Greene. She was given the codename, Mother, because the virus didn't kill her it made her body a factory of lethal viruses. She was moved to New York City for more experiments by Gentek.

In 2008, Alex Mercer find out about the Blacklight project and that the company was being killed one by one, Alex tried to flee out of the city with a vial of his research, but was cornered by Blackwatch. Alex then released the virus by smashing it onto the floor, unleashing the deadly virus onto the area. After awaking at a Gentek facility with no recollection of his past, Alex Mercer escapes the building, and soon discovers his new found powers and abilities, granted by the virus he unleashed. With this, he begins to utilize his powers in order to learn more of his fragmented past, as he scoured all of New York for those responsible.

In Prototype 2, you play as James Heller, a former US Marine Sergeant, who lost his wife and daughter because of Alex Mercer releasing the virus to the public. As Heller attempts to get his revenge, Alex Mercer infects James Heller with the virus giving him powers similar to his.
