Default Prototype

If anyone one has the newest Game Informer, check out the cover story on Prototype, a new game for PS3/Xbox 360 developed by Radical Entertainment. (GI cover) I can't find any information about the game online anywhere. If someone finds a link, post it up. It sounds like a pretty sweet game. The main character, Alex Mercer, has the ability to kill and absorb anyone he encounters. After absorbing someone, he can transform his appearance to look like the person and any knowledge and memories that person had are now his. And since he is physically absorbing the bodies, his body becomes more and more dense and he can morph is mass into weapons. Heres a bit from the magazine:
Quote:
He can change shape to look like anyone he's killed, the perfect master of disguise. Decades - then centuries - of human knowledge begin to build up in his mind. "As our character progresses he's becoming something more briliant than any human being has ever been," Holmes relays. That knowledge might include the location of a secret military installation, or the ability to pilot an Apache helicopter. With each new body, Alex becomes more dense and powerful, and he begins to discover new ways to morph his biomass into weapons of destruction or impenetrable armor to protect him from bullets and explosions.
From a demo:

Quote:
In our demo, the prototype drops down dozens of stories into the middle of Times Square and immediately hones in on a walking businessman. By pushing the analog stick towards him, Mercer automatically umps over a nearby cab without breaking stride to grab the hapless victim. The camera zooms in close to witness the vicious throttling as the prototype efficiently dispatches the defenseless foe. After brutally beating the civilian, the body begins to shrink and morph off the sidewalk, slipping up Mercer's leg and disappearinginto the ever-growing body mass. Perhaps using some of that new mass, at a press of the d-pad, Alex's hands begin to grow horribly misshapen, expanding into massive claws. The crowd begins to scatter, but not before Alex stalks and easily overtakes a fleeing pedestrian and literally splits him in two. The military is quick to arrive and Alex responds by transforming once again, hatching jagged ridged plates that coat his form. Now running towards the same cab as before, he smashes through insead of leaping over as bullets from the nearby soldiers ping off his new exoskeleton. Easily dispatching the soldiers, he tracks down their leader. The mustachioed captain is quick to succumb, and now Alex slips through a nearby alley and emerges on the other side looking like his most recent victim. Ahead, a military cordon blockades the road. Striding up to the soldiers as their apparent commander, the disguised Mercer punches one of the soldiers indicating to the others that this poor man he's attacking is the prototype. The others open fire, and the real Alex is able to slip through to his objective."

Yea, I thought it looked pretty bad ass, but can't find anything about it online anywhere to post on here. Only in GI. It's a long article too. I don't recall hearing anything about this from E3 either. Did no one talk about it?
