It's rather impressive that Supergiant Games, in the midst of preparing their small studio for PAX East over the weekend, has now announced the release date of their upcoming game Transistor. Yet here we are, with Creative Director Greg Kasavin posting the big announcement in a blog on Transistor's official site. Expect Transistor to be released on PlayStation 4 and PC starting May 20.
While Greg Kasavin unfortunately didn't have any new gameplay information to discuss, he did have a few other treats for excited fans. Transistor will be available for $19.99 in North America and €18.99 / £14.99 in Europe with English voiceover and English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese subtitles. Also, partly in celebration of the game's announcement at PAX yeast one year ago, the full game will be playable at this year's PAX East this weekend (booth #892).
I think Transistor may be my most anticipated game of 2014 leading into the holiday season. Supergiant Games proved they have outstanding talent with regards to narrative design, and fun, challenging gameplay that complements the story with Bastion. Transistor, while different in style and tone, looks to capitalize on the same things. Can lightning strike twice? I really hope so.
Transistor, the sci-fi action/RPG follow-up to Supergiant Games' hugely popular Bastion, is only a month and a half away from its May 20 release date.
