With five nominations, Bastion is in line for a very big night at this weekend’s Spike TV Video Game Awards. But whether or not it wins any of the awards it’s up for, developer Supergiant Games plans to expand the popular action RPG next week.
The Stranger’s Dream will be available to download from Steam (for free) and the Xbox Live Arcade (for $1) on December 14. The DLC will add a new, fully narrated Who Knows Where sequence to the game along with a Score Attack Mode (which unlocks all Spirits and Idols) and a No-Sweat Mode for those who want to enjoy Bastion’s story and the dulcet tones of narrator Logan Cunningham.
Players who want to tackle The Stranger’s Dream and Score Attack Mode will have to have completed the main game, but they’ll be rewarded for their efforts with a new monster arena that delves deeper into Rucks’ backstory as well as the history of Caelondia. And what does the voice of Rucks have to say about that?
“Exciting Bastion-times are afoot.” Indeed they are.
