Supergiant Games burst onto the scene in a huge way with the release of their debut game, Bastion, in 2011. The Action RPG combined Zelda-like gameplay mechanics with a revolutionary audio presentation that also included an ever-present narrator. Today, the developer announced that Bastion will be released for the Xbox One on December 12.
Instead of going the Backwards Compatibility route, Supergiant teamed up with BlitWorks to rebuild Bastion from the ground up for the Xbox One. This new version of the game will be displayed in full 1080p and come packaged with the Stranger’s Dream expansion. An entirely new set of Achievements will also be included. Best of all, everyone who owns the Xbox 360 version of Bastion will be able to upgrade to the Xbox One version for free until January 1, 2017 (new players will pay $14.99).
Finally, Supergiant had a message for their fans in a new blog post on their website: “We remain ever grateful to all of you out there who love and remember Bastion, because it’s thanks to you that we get to stick together as a team and keep making games day to day.”
