Bastion’s coming to Xbox One, and Xbox 360 owners get it free

Time to grab this pretty RPG

Supergiant Games

Supergiant Games is bringing Bastion, its unique debut role-playing game, to Xbox One next month. In anticipation of the current-gen port, owners of the original release on Xbox 360 will get copies of the new version free, the company announced on its blog.

Xbox One owners can pick up Bastion on Dec. 12, while the deal for those who have the last-gen version is valid through Jan. 1, 2017. Otherwise, the game will cost $14.99 at launch, just as it does now on Xbox 360.

As for what’s different with the Xbox One release, Supergiant said it’s mostly just the same old Bastion — although this isn’t a simple backward-compatible release. On Xbox One, the game outputs in 1080p and has additional achievements to strive for, as well as the Stranger’s Dream downloadable content pack.

Bastion first launched just over five years ago, making the Xbox One version a celebratory re-release for the game. It’s also available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, as well as PCs, although it made its debut on the Xbox Live Arcade in 2011.

Supergiant is currently working on Pyre, which is due in 2017; it’s yet another RPG, this time about exiled fighters looking for a way back home. Check out some of our early gameplay from PAX East 2016 below.
