Supergiant Games Announces Sci-Fi RPG Transistor

After remaining dormant for some time after their last release of Bastion two years ago, Supergiant Games has announced its next game, named Transistor, with a trailer. The trailer shows that the gameplay style which is very similar to Bastion. As of yet, it is unknown if Transistor will have a narrator like Bastion did. Check out the trailer below.

Transistor is set in a sci-fi world. The story goes as this: everyone has a voice in Cloudbank. Now, the city's most influential voices are vanishing one by one, and it is Red's turn. Players assume the role of a young woman who gains control of a powerful weapon after a mysterious group of assailants nearly kills her with it. Now she must fight from street to street against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players will piece together the Transistor's mysteries as they pursue its former owners.

The game is scheduled for launch in early 2014, but there is no confirmation as to what console they will be released on. Going by the release window, it would be a safe bet to assume that the game will be out on all of the current and next-gen systems.

Supergiant Games' major title Bastion has been critically praised for its story, storytelling method, and most notably the music. The game hosts a narrator that tells the story as it happens, including things that the player does, like breaking boxes and falling off ledges, etc. The hack-and-slash RPG was originally launched on Xbox Live Arcade as a Summer of Arcade title in 2011. Other than iOS and the Xbox 360, you can play the game on PC, Mac, and via the Chrome browser.

As soon as the game gets a formal release date we will be first on the news. Enjoy the trailer posted above which shows this game is going to be a real cracker.
