The critically acclaimed Bastion, which we gave a perfect score for in our review, will now be recieving downloadable content. The DLC is set to head into the Bastion on the 14th of December under the title ‘The Stranger’s Dream’.
Supergiant Games released to following information concerning the details of the DLC’s new features:
– The Stranger’s Dream: a new fully narrated Who Knows Where sequence, bigger and more challenging than the others. You’ll gain a bit more insight into Rucks’ backstory as well as the history of Caelondia if you can survive this fight.
– Score Attack Mode: a challenging new way to play through the story! You start at level one with all Spirits and Idols unlocked. Your combat performance is rated for efficiency, and all areas are repeatable.
– No-Sweat Mode: for those who just want to experience the story of Bastion, this mode provides unlimited chances to carry on from where you left off if you’re defeated in battle.
That is undoubtedly a pretty hefty amount of new content for the little XBLA game that could. The DLC drops tomorrow, at the incredibly low price of 80 microsoft points. Now that is a bargain right there. Supergiant Games originally planned the DLC to be absolutely free but due to a clause with Microsoft they had to give it a price, so they opted for the lowest price they were allowed.
