Activision has high expectations for Prototype 2, which looks to expand on the intriguing concept of the first game while (hopefully) providing a more compelling gameplay experience than the first game.

This new trailer, entitled "Timeline," details the entire history of the secret military unit Blackwatch and the Blacklight virus that it loosed on the world and the first game's protagonist Alex Mercer. In the second half, you'll also see another glimpse of the sequel's new character, James Heller.

Activision also dropped some new screenshots of the game, so check them out at the bottom of the page.
