Bastion Coming to Xbox One, Free for Previous Owners

Bastion

For a limited time, though.

Bastion is getting an Xbox One release next month, Supergiant Games announced today. The action RPG originally launched for the Xbox 360 under Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade promotion in 2011, and has since been ported to PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

The newest version of Bastion launches for Xbox One on Dec. 12 and will cost $14.99. Anyone who owns the original Xbox 360 release will be able to download Bastion on Xbox One for free until Jan. 1, 2017.


“Bringing Bastion to Xbox One was more involved than flipping a switch that says ‘make it backwards compatible’!” the developer writes, “The game has been re-built to feel native to the platform.”

Differences between the updated adaptation and the original include running at 1080p resolution (versus the original’s 720p), more achievements than the original’s 12, and the Stranger’s Dream DLC is automatically included. The Xbox 360 version is currently not backwards compatible with Xbox One, but the developer is giving previous owners about three weeks to download the updated title for free as apprecriation for all the support.
