Microsoft will charge $4.99 for the previously announced Conker's Big Reunion DLC pack for Project Spark, the free-to-play game creation tool for the Xbox One and Windows 8.1. The pack, which will still be released on April 23, can also be purchased with 500 in-game tokens.
There's also the option to purchase the Conker Mega Pack, which will include Conker's Big Reunion, the Conker Creation Pack, the Conker Champion (playable in Champions Quest and Crossroads) and episode 1 of Champions Quest for $9.99 or 1,000 in-game tokens.
This will be the first official Conker game by Microsoft in some time. The very adult squirrel was the star of Rare's classic M-rated action-platformer Conker's Bad Fur Day for the Nintendo 64. Microsoft released a remake, Conker: Live & Reloaded, for the original Xbox in 2005.
Microsoft's Team Dakota stated:
Conker is the first step to bring a beloved franchise to Project Spark. With the Conker Creation Pack, players will be able to build their own Conker games and tell their own Conker stories. There's no telling what people are going to create (Our moderators are standing by! Hehe) and everything our creators share will be available for free for anyone to play. It's going to be pretty exciting!
We didn't want our community to have all the fun in bringing back Conker so we're also building the first episode in an all new Conker adventure, called Conker's Big Reunion. This hour long experience is meant to play like what you'd expect from a Conker game. Team Dakota has built this episode with the same simple yet powerful creation tools our community uses today so it's also a great way to get inspired by what the Project Spark platform is capable of creating.
There's no word yet if Team Dakota plans to release any additional episodes of Conker's Big Reunion for Project Spark.
