Available for the April 24 launch of the game on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the Blackwatch Collector's Edition includes an official soundtrack CD, a hardbound art book, a digital comic from Dark Horse Comics, and a 20-percent-off voucher for the Prototype merchandise store, which will sell an assortment of hoodies, shirts, posters, and other swag.

The premium bundle will also include bonuses players won't be able to fully take advantage of on day one, including the first downloadable content pack for the game (Colossal Mayhem, due out in May) and the Radnet content subscription being given to all Prototype 2 preorder customers. Radnet will be a series of weekly content drops featuring 55 pieces of added DLC in the form of in-game events, challenges, avatar items, themes, and behind-the-scenes videos.

Prototype 2 is the sequel to 2009's open-world action adventure title from Radical Entertainment. It is set in the fictional world of New York Zero and casts players as Sgt. James Heller, an ex-soldier tasked with taking down the protagonist of the original game, Alex Mercer. The PC edition of Prototype 2 is set for July 24.
