Bastion is the first Summer of Arcade title for the Xbox 360 and it releases TODAY! Can we get an excited “squee?!”
Bastion is about a survivor of an event known as the “Calamity” and it features incredible art, a deep story, a crumbling environment and an “innovative reactive narration system that responds to players’ actions throughout the adventure.”
This action RPG can be had today for the price of 1200 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360 or later this year for PC. Check out the funny, action packed launch trailer below and then celebrate the Summer of Arcade (or Winter of Arcade, if your in Australia).
Bastion won 10 E3 awards. It was developed by Supergiant games and published by Warner Bros.
“We are extremely pleased to have joined forces with Supergiant Games to bring the incredibly innovative Bastion to players, as we continue to support the development of digital and independent games,” said Martin Tremblay, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Bastion is a great example of how the passion of a small but talented team can make a great game that engages all types of players with its imagination and narration.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to show the world what our team of seven people at Supergiant Games can do,” said Amir Rao, Studio Director of Supergiant Games. “Bastion expresses our desire to make games that spark players’ imaginations like the ones they played as kids. We hope it leaves a lasting impression.”
