Transistor is 1080p on PS4, Includes a Platinum Trophy


As we’re now two weeks away from the launch of Transistor on PS4 (May 20th in North America, May 21st in Europe), Supergiant Games has announced that the game will be available for pre-order later today in North America for $19.99. Since PS4 pre-orders are still being worked on in Europe, don’t expect Transistor to be up for pre-order before May 21st.

The developer also took the time to reveal some details about Transistor, which you can read below:

  • DualShock 4 Light Bar flashes in sync with the Transistor’s speech
  • More than 30 Trophies (including a Platinum Trophy)
  • Remote Play & Share Button support (standard for PS4 games)
  • Transistor runs at 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and PC
  • The PS4 and PC versions are identical
  • The PS4 download is roughly 2.5GB

Over on the PS Blog, Creative Director Greg Kasavin elaborated on the DualShock 4 support and trophies:

Some months ago I also told you a little about how we’re using DualShock 4′s light bar in sync with the voiceover in the game. At the end I hinted we were also looking into using the controller’s built-in speaker. Turns out it works great, so we’re pleased to offer a Controller Speaker option for a more personal feel. With the light bar and controller speaker working in unison, DualShock 4 becomes a direct analog for Red’s mysterious, talkative weapon. We think this is a unique way of playing through the game, and we hope players will enjoy it.

Lastly (for now), let’s talk about Trophies. Transistor has more than 30 Trophies, including a Platinum Trophy if you manage to unlock all the others. Our philosophy around Trophy design is we want players to discover the breadth, depth, and content of the game, and feel rewarded for it. Some of our Trophies concern hidden aspects of the game that we’ve purposely said nothing about, so we encourage you to discover these for yourself as you play! Though if you want look them all up and aren’t worried about spoiling bits of it for yourself, that’s cool too.
