The game features context-specific third- and first-person shooter perspectives. Heroes will be the first Battlefield game to be released under Electronic Arts' new "Play 4 Free" model, which will see the game released for free with revenue generated from advertising and micropayments. Advertisements will appear on the website and the 'front-end' of the game although none will appear in-game, while micropayments may be made for additional items to customize the appearance of players' avatars without any gaming advantage. The game is said to be placing less emphasis on skill and strategy, and will be less demanding on computer specifications than the previous games of the series to increase the audience base. In addition, a system will be in place to match players of similar skill levels together for fair play.(Wikipedia)

Wreak havoc on an unsuspecting New York City in this open-world action game from Radical Entertainment.
The story that drives Prototype is a mysterious one. As Alex Mercer, you suddenly wake up in a morgue imbued with a suite of superhuman powers, ranging from the ability to sprout razor-sharp blades from your arm to a knack for scaling buildings with a spiteful disregard for gravity that Spider-Man could only dream of. Alex doesn't know how he got there or why he's been transformed into a hyperkinetic Swiss Army knife of a human being; all he knows is that he's angry and needs to find out where to focus that anger.
