Transistor: Supergiant’s next big title
Supergiant Games have finally released footage of their latest project, Transistor, the long-awaited sci-fi RPG follow up to their smash indie hit Bastion. Players will take on the role of Red, who has stolen a weapon of great power in the midst of political upheaval. Transistor puts you in the role of Red, who comes into possession of a power weapon after nearly being killed by a group of unnamed villains. Now on the run, she fights through the city of Cloudbank to escape her relentless pursuers who will stop at nothing to recover their prized weapon. The story teased in the trailer also promises plenty of political intrigue, embroiling Red in a two-fold battle to survie.
“We’re designing our next game to seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience,” says creative director Greg Kasavin, “complete with our studio’s signature melding of responsive gameplay and rich atmospheric storytelling.” The article goes on to mention that the game has been in development since Bastion launched in 2011, and have also expanded their team to accommodate the scale of the project.
Expecting an early 2014 release date, there is yet to be an official statement on what platforms the game will be available for, though it is safe to assume that we will see PC and Xbox releases as well as the major mobile devices. Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook as well as the team’s official website for a FAQ addressing a number of points about the new title.
Supergiant will be at PAX East this week debuting their playable alpha build of the game in booth #892. More coverage as it becomes available.
