A bundle which includes action games Prototype and Prototype 2 is now available for purchase on the Xbox One, Microsoft announced today. Called the Prototype Biohazard Bundle, the announcement was detailed on the Major Nelson site.

The bundle is priced at $49.99 on the US Xbox Store and includes downloadable content. Together the games are approximately a 17GB download. Prototype was first released in 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and follows the story of Alex Mercer, a man who possesses shape-shifting abilities and has lost his memory. The game was well-received in GameSpot's review, scoring eight-and-a-half out of ten. Reviewer Justin Calvert praised Prototype for its intriguing protagonist and storyline, as well as its ability to be challenging without becoming frustrating.

A sequel, Prototype 2, was released in 2012 and carries on from the story of its predecessor through the eyes of a new character. The game was positively received in GameSpot's review, although it was criticized for not bringing anything particularly new or inventive to the series. Developer Radical Entertainment has since been downsized, with remaining staff allocated to various Activision Publishing sectors.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
