Bastion developer Supergiant Games has revealed new details about their upcoming game for PlayStation 4, called Transistor. Like their first video game, Bastion, when you are done playing Transistor it does not “necessarily signify the end of the time you’ll want to spend with it”.
You will want to get back in the game by starting a New Game+, which is called “Recursion Mode”. Like any other NG+, it will be unlocked upon finishing the game, giving you the chance to preserve your progression data, including User Level and any Transistor functions you have unlocked for a second playthrough.
“This immediately opens up a lot of new gameplay as you’ll be discovering new function combinations all the way through your initial playthrough of the game. You’ll also find some new surprises in the content itself the second time around,” Supergiant’s Creative Director Greg Kasavin explained.
“Most notably, the composition of enemy forces you’ll encounter will be different – and it’ll be different just about every time you play. This means you can really sink your teeth into the core gameplay if, as we hope, you’ve taken a liking to it by the end of the game.”
Presented as a single-player-focused experience, Transistor aims to be an “intimate and personal experience for players” according to Kasavin. Transistor will be released to PlayStation 4 on May 20th in North America and May 21st in Europe for $14.99. Watch the launch trailer below.
