And it’s free! (If you have Bastion on PC or Google Chrome, that is.) Those with the Xbox Live Arcade version, however, are going to have to pay $0.99 to get Stranger’s Dream when it drops on December 14 “due to Microsoft policy.” Well, crap.
- The Stranger’s Dream: a new fully narrated Who Knows Where sequence, bigger and more challenging than the others. You’ll gain a bit more insight into Rucks’ backstory as well as the history of Caelondia if you can survive this fight.
- Score Attack Mode: a challenging new way to play through the story! You start at level one with all Spirits and Idols unlocked. Your combat performance is rated for efficiency, and all areas are repeatable.
- No-Sweat Mode: for those who just want to experience the story of Bastion, this mode provides unlimited chances to carry on from where you left off if you’re defeated in battle.
In order to play Score Attack Mode and the new Who Knows Where sequence, you’ll need to have completed Bastion already.
