Transistor, the new game from the folks who brought us the wonderful Bastion, is one of the most anticipated games of 2014. PS4 and PC players alike have been looking forward to the title for over a year and now they only have to wait one more month.
Supergiant Games announced today that Transistor will launch on May 20 for both the PS4 and PC. The title features the same top down style found in Bastion, but this new title is wrapped up in a neon-filled sci-fi aesthetic that looks absolutely gorgeous. If you’ve missed out on everything Transistor up to this point, here’s a synopsis:
If you’re not familiar with the game, Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a stunning futuristic city. Gameplay seamlessly integrates thoughtful strategic planning with fast-paced action and rich atmospheric storytelling. During the course of the adventure, you’ll piece together the Transistor’s mysteries as you pursue its former owners.
If you want to check out Transistor ahead of its release, Supergiant Games says it will be on display at PAX East this weekend at booth #892. The playable build on show will be running on the PS4, but you can expect the PC version to look just as good if not better.
Transistor will retail for $19.99 on both PS4 and PC when it launches in May. There’s no word yet if it will be available at a discount for PS Plus members, but chances are probably slim. There’s also no word yet on if PS4 players will be able to pre-order it, but Supergiant Games says they’ll be looking into it.
