Bastion is coming to Xbox One, and original Xbox 360 owners can get it for free


Five years since it first launched on Xbox 360, Supergiant Games’ psychedelic, post-apocalyptic action-RPG Bastion is setting sail and coming home to Xbox One next month. More than just a backwards-compatible push-to-re-release, the game has been reworked in full 1080p HD, and includes new Achievements, and the Stranger’s Dream DLC.

“A little over five years ago, our first game Bastion launched in the Xbox 360’s Summer of Arcade showcase, and went on to earn more than 100 industry awards and accolades, sell close to four million copies to date across different platforms, and in general exceed all our wildest expectations,” the developer wrote in a blog update. “So, we’re pleased to announce that next month, on December 12, the game is finally returning to Xbox in a faithful new adaptation for Xbox One!”

Those of you who bought back in 2011 can get the new version for freebies until 1 January 2017. That’s me too! I even bought the soundtrack because it’s so lovely.

Now, what about Transistor?
