Xbox Live Arcade's Bastion
has gotten its launch date on the PC. Bastion
will be available as a $14.99 download on Steam August 16, one day before From Dust debuts on the platform
. You're getting two Summer of Arcade goodies in one week!
Additionally, we'd like to point out that the Bastion soundtrack
is currently available as a $10 download, replete with a new narration intro and bonus track, "The Pantheon (Ain't Gonna Catch You)." If you're looking for an actual physical disc, maybe to clutch against your bosom tightly as you fall asleep at night -- hey, no judgment here -- then you can shell out $15. The actual CD comes in a custom wallet, featuring original art by Jen Zee and (optionally) signed by composer Darren Korb.
If you're really distrustful of your mail man (or don't want to wait until September when the disc ships), you can snag the album at PAX Prime in Seattle at the end of the month. Before you go diving into those beautiful tunes, take some of our advice: the songs are definitely best heard first in-game.
