SuperGiant Games has announced that Bastion will be coming to Xbox One. The current-gen version of the game will run at 1080p resolution verses the 720p resolution of the original Xbox 360 release. It will also have additional achievements as well as include the Stranger’s Dream DLC.
According to the post on their website, this version of Bastion is more than just a port of the original. SuperGiant Games states, “Bringing Bastion to Xbox One was more involved than flipping a switch that says ‘make it backwards compatible’! The game has been re-built to feel native to the platform.”
As an added bonus, gamers who already own the game on Xbox 360 will be able to download the game for Xbox One for free. This offer is good until the 1st of January 2017.
Along with this announcement, SuperGiant Games will be releasing a t-shirt to commemorate the game’s launch, as well as its fifth anniversary. The shirt features artwork designed by Nina Matsumoto. Matsumoto has done art for the Simpsons comic book series as well as for her own series Yokaiden. The shirt is now available for pre-order for $14.99.
The Xbox One version of Bastion is set to release on December 12th. The game was originally released in July of 2011, and is also available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PC, and mobile.
