Announcing the Transistor Original Soundtrack
We’re pleased to confirm that 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.
We also have new details to share with you about the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of Transistor. The content of the two versions is identical, though certain aspects are tailored to the respective platforms:
Transistor for PlayStation 4 Features
- 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 for PC Features
- Full controller support & fully remappable controls
- Steamworks support including cloud saves, achievements, & trading cards
- DRM-free: You can play the game offline if you want
PC Minimum System Requirements
OS: Windows 7 or newer
CPU: 2.6GHz Dual Core CPU or greater
RAM: 4GB or greater
GPU: 1GB Video RAM or greater, e.g. Intel HD Graphics 3000, Nvidia 9400 GT, AMD HD 5450
Hard Drive Space: 4GB free
Lastly, we have updated our Transistor FAQ with several new questions and answers:
What is the game’s native resolution?
Transistor runs at 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and PC. The PC version also contains 720p assets for compatibility with less powerful systems.
Will there be a stand-alone DRM-free version of Transistor for PC?
We have no plans for a stand-alone installer for Transistor at this time. The Steam version of the game includes various features that require Steam, such as cloud saves, achievements, and trading cards, and for launch we did not want to create a separate version lacking these features. Note we have put no DRM in Transistor unless you count Steam as a form of DRM. Once you’ve downloaded the game from Steam, you don’t need Steam to be running in order to play.
Which formats will the Transistor Original Soundtrack be available in?
The Transistor Original Soundtrack will be offered in MP3 and FLAC formats, and in compact disc format on this web site (which includes the digital version).
That’s all for now! Get ready for May 20!
