Surprise! Without an announcement, press release, trailer or any fanfare whatsoever, Activision has released a two game bundle of Prototype on the Xbox One.
The Prototype Biohazard Bundle showed up on the Xbox Store, and it contains, Prototype, Prototype 2 and all the accompanying DLC. This is not a remaster, if you’re curious. This is just a straight port of the two titles and their content. Does this mean Activision is skipping the backwards compatibility of these games when that feature hits full release later this year? Who knows…
Here’s how the Xbox Store describes the content:
Bundle includes Prototype® and Prototype®2 with DLC! PROTOTYPE: Discover what lies beyond the edge of evolution. Play as Alex Mercer, a genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anybody that gets in his way… assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities. PROTOTYPE 2: WELCOME TO NEW YORK ZERO. Prototype®2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original Prototype® and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. A devastating viral outbreak has claimed the lives of Sgt James Heller’s family and transformed him into a PROTOTYPE. Powered by incredible new shapeshifting powers and abilities, you must hunt, kill and consume your way across the infected wasteland of New York Zero to take revenge on the man responsible: Alex Mercer. Download includes DLC.
The PlayStation Store hasn’t updated yet today, so it’s hard to say whether or not this surprise bundle will make it’s way to that platform. The duo is selling for $50, which is a tall order for non-remastered ports.
Still, Prototype fans might be interested in picking this package up.
