Prototype is back! The original [Prototype] game was released back in 2009 and was one of the top selling titles of its time. This time, you are playing as Sgt. James Heller and have similar abilities as Alex Mercer who was the main protagonist in the first game of the franchise. In comparison to Prototype 1, lots of technical improvements have been made. The graphics look much better now and the game offers a very user friendly design that will come in handy on your way to platinum.
There are a total of 9 story related trophies and many others will come naturally. All of the combat abilities and attacks are unlocked automatically from the main plot missions. After progressing in the story you will be able to use vehicles (tanks, APC's and helicopters) and something called airbridges that allow you to travel to other islands. It's recommended to do two playthroughs because you will need lots of XP to fully upgrade Heller. After finishing the story you will be in a free roam mode. Here you can do all of the side missions and get all of the collectibles. New Game+ will also unlock after finishing the last story mission. It allows you to replay the story without losing any combat abilities or upgrades.
Good luck with all of the trophies and enjoy the game!
Step 1 - Beating the Story on Easy Difficulty
This step is simple. Just play through the game as you wish and don't pay much attention to any trophies. I recommend doing two playthroughs, even if hard difficulty wouldn't be a big challenge on the first run. After your first playthrough you will still need lots of XP for the All Growed Up trophy.
While playing through the story consume every enemy that has a yellow symbol above their head. Try to get the majority of mission bonuses because it will reward you with extra XP.
Keep the following icons in mind:
= Bonus XP
= Upgrades (There are a total of 46)
= Blacknet Targets
Also make sure to get all of the collectibles you accidentally run into.
Step 2 - Mop Up
Now it's time to get all of the remaining trophies in free roam mode (except Master Prototype & All Growed Up). Gather all of the collectibles and do all of the side missions until there is nothing left to do but beating the game on hard and reaching the maximum evolution level. Check out the detailed trophy descriptions in the guide below if you are unsure about certain trophies. Don't worry if you are still missing some upgrades for the Finally Full trophy. You can still get the missing ones in New Game+.
Step 3 - Beating New Game+ on Hard Difficulty
In this step you can simply rush through the story with your insanely overpowered Sgt. Heller. Go back to the main menu and click on "New Game+". The game will use your latest save file and all your upgrades and XP will carry over! You should be done within 5-6 hours and should reach the maximum level on your way to the final battle. Try to get all the missions bonuses and consume the targets that will give you bonus XP.
If you should be missing any trophies for whatever reason then make sure to get them here or go back to one of your previous save games on easy difficulty.
-Game Breaking Glitch Warning-
There currently is a glitch that prevents you from progressing any further in the story. No new main missions can be played if the glitch occurs. The new missions won't show up on your map and even if you find their starting point nothing will happen. This happens randomly and there is no known fix! The best precaution you can take is to save the game on a different save-slot very frequently. In case the game glitches you can load one of these older save games without losing too much progress.
