Transistor Comes to PS4 May 20th

Greg Kasavin's Avatar + Posted by Greg Kasavin on Apr 10, 2014 // Creative Director, Supergiant Games

Transistor is coming soon! Mark your calendar for May 20th, 2014 — In just a few weeks, our next game will be available on PS4! We’ve been putting the finishing touches on it, and we think it’s just about ready.

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.

Transistor on PS4

This week at PAX East in Boston, several of us from Supergiant will be taking a short break from development to show you some of our latest progress. We’ll have a near-final build of the game running on PS4, which you’ll be able to get your hands on at our booth (#892). It was one year ago at PAX East that we showed Transistor for the first time!

We’ll have more details about Transistor in the days leading up to our launch next month. Until then, here are some quick facts we wanted to share — stay tuned for more:

When is Transistor due out?
Transistor’s release date is May 20th, 2014.

Where will I be able to get the game?
You’ll be able to get Transistor for PS4 on PlayStation Store

How much is the game?
$19.99 in North America.

Will Transistor be available in my country?
We plan for a worldwide launch. Transistor includes English voiceover and text in English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, Russian, and Brazilian Portuguese.

Can I preorder the game?

I have more questions.
Sure! Read our Transistor FAQ, send questions to @SupergiantGames on Twitter, or leave us comments here on PlayStation.Blog.

Stay tuned for more news, and get ready to play Transistor in the near future!

Another good one for the new Indiestation 4. Or PS3.5 or whatever it is called nowadays.

Nice! Any plans for a demo?

+ andyscout on April 10th, 2014 at 8:12 am said:

Awe yeah! Can’t wait for this game. Bastion was amazing, so I’ve been excited for this since the reveal.

+ cheeckoo42 on April 10th, 2014 at 8:13 am said:

Sweet! ^_^
I didn’t expected it so soon, as a big fan of Bastion it’s a obvious first day purchase


11

+ saab01 on April 10th, 2014 at 8:14 am said:

Price seems a little steep. I thought the game would of been priced at 10 or max 15 bucks. I just hope a demo is planned it would suck to drop money on a game that I thought looked good but didn’t deliver in the end.

+ judasgoat on April 10th, 2014 at 8:14 am said:

Any chance of seeing Bastion possibly on PS4? I have it on Steam, but would like it on my console as well…

+ GeoDarky on April 10th, 2014 at 8:15 am said:

Finally a release date! can’t wait


14

+ PanTheMan16 on April 10th, 2014 at 8:16 am said:

Bastion is easily the best game I purchased from Steam, so Transistor is a no-brainer for me!

Hey Greg Kasavin!!! I was always a big fan of yours back when you wrote for Gamespot! Glad to see you’re part of such a respected dev team!

Bastion was fantastic

+ StealthReborn– on April 10th, 2014 at 8:37 am said:

Hey Greg,

Just wondering, but when this was shown at E3 last year, I could’ve sworn it was announced for PS4/Vita and it was coming free for PS+ subscribers. Not that I wasn’t going to buy it anyway, just want a confirmation on that.

Have a great day! =)

+ JonJonXD on April 10th, 2014 at 8:45 am said:

This is a day one buy for me.

Day one purchase!

WILL IT HAVE A PLATINUM TROPHY?

+ toothdecaykills on April 10th, 2014 at 8:46 am said:

Yes! This is one of my most anticipated titles of this year. I absolutely cannot wait. Day 1 for me.

Any idea on the length?

Throwing in my support for a Bastion PS4 double feature.

+ The_1_of_Deth on April 10th, 2014 at 9:01 am said:

looks fun! :) not sure if this is the proper place for it but i was curious if Sony’s network is at risk from the Heartbleed bug goin around? i know it mainly is going through sites that have used OpenSSl and was curious if sony had already implemented the fix that is out or if there was even call for concern in the first place. just need a heads up if i should be changing my password right away or if its a non-issue right now?

Huzzah! I too have wanted this since launch. My birthday is 3 days after so I know what I will be doing, ignoring friends and playing this till my eyeballs and fingers bleed.

Does this support Remote Play? Any plans for a Vita version?


26

+ WranglerRex on April 10th, 2014 at 9:12 am said:

Will be buying day 1 without a doubt. Greg, do you have any plans on bringing Bastion to the playstation eco-system? That would be amazing in every way.

+ PiMDx on April 10th, 2014 at 9:13 am said:

Was hoping to see this as a free game for PSPlus, guess I’ll need a job to play it. ;)

+ Sorahl213 on April 10th, 2014 at 9:17 am said:

Count me in! Been waiting to hear about this gem since E3! Really stoked to play it next month. Now to wait for Hohokum and Octodad….

+ coolasj19 on April 10th, 2014 at 9:39 am said:

Keep pushing on that Pre-Order thing. It’s good for us and you. I want to be able to dump my money in and download it ASAP. Until then, I have a little PSN card set aside.

Great Game, can’t wait


31

+ Welmosca on April 10th, 2014 at 10:01 am said:

Unfortunately this game doesn’t appeal to me.Well a demo should be released thats for sure.


32

+ CrusaderForever on April 10th, 2014 at 10:33 am said:

Such an easy D1P for me! I am so happy this is coming out next month! I was hoping it wouldn’t be far into the summer. Thanks for the good news and I cannot wait to buy your game!

35

+ Ryumoau on April 10th, 2014 at 11:11 am said:

This looks really interesting but with a price tag of $20, i really hope they release a demo. Or maybe a good ps plus discount at launch.


36

+ iREVOLTER on April 10th, 2014 at 11:26 am said:

Like I asked on Twitter and didn’t get and answer. Are u gonna put a PS+ Pre-Order Discount or First Week Discount for PS+ ?


37

+ MakoSoul on April 10th, 2014 at 11:27 am said:

So excited! I can’t wait to play Transistor. A pre-order with some bonuses would be awesome. I want to throw my money at you guys ASAP!

Not to be dismissive of the PS4 news, but is there going to be a PS Vita release?

cool

+ Elvick_ on April 10th, 2014 at 1:44 pm said:

Can’t wait! I still hope we could somehow get Bastion on PlayStation. I know you’re focused on this game, and will probably want to port it elsewhere after it comes out on PS4/PC. But if you could manage to fit in a Bastion port at some point, that would be great. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to play it on PlayStation.

+ CrownedLion on April 10th, 2014 at 1:45 pm said:

One of my most anticipated games and perfect for PS4…I’m confident that this game is gonna be top-notch. Clearly they’ve created a very rich world, and I can’t wait to delve in. This seems like the kind of game that will please just about every gamer, no matter what genre you prefer. It’ll kick off the summer perfectly.


47

+ CrownedLion on April 10th, 2014 at 1:48 pm said:

@45: Agreed. I played Bastion on PC, but I would much prefer to play it on PS3/4.


48

+ CaruthK on April 10th, 2014 at 1:49 pm said:

Yes! Finally I’ve been waiting for this since E3 last year. Pre-Ordering it as soon as it goes Live on PSN-Store… I can’t wait…
