Supergiant Games has announced release details for Transistor, including pre-order details and the announcement of an official soundtrack. The game is now available for pre-order on Steam, and PSN pre-orders will be available later today.
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. There are many options to purchasing the soundtrack.
If you preorder the disc, you will get the digital download immediately as of May 20. On Steam, the game or digital soundtrack can be purchased individually, or bought as a bundle for $29.98.

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.
