'Transistor' (ALL) Available For Pre-Order

by Rainier on May 7, 2014 @ 7:29 p.m. PDT

Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG that invites you to wield an extraordinary weapon of unknown origin as you fight through a futuristic city.

Transistor will seamlessly integrate thoughtful strategic planning into a fast-paced action experience, complete with a melding of responsive gameplay and rich storytelling.

In Transistor, players assume the role of a young woman who gains control of a powerful weapon after assailants nearly kill her with it. She must fight against forces that will stop at nothing to recover the weapon. During the course of the adventure, players piece together the Transistor's mysteries.

Transistor is now available for pre-order on PSN or Steam, or you can preorder the game plus the Transistor Original Soundtrack!

The Transistor Original Soundtrack will be released on our May 20 launch day for $9.99 for the digital version, and $14.99 for digital + compact disc. It will be available on Steam stand-alone and bundled with the game, and on this web site. The Transistor Original Soundtrack features more than 60 minutes of music created for the game by Supergiant’s Darren Korb, with vocals by Ashley Barrett.

The OST includes an exclusive bonus track, “Signals”, created especially for this release. We will have the OST available digitally on May 20, and the physical CD will ship soon after. If you preorder the disc, you will get the digital download immediately as of May 20.
