Check out the badass below who appears this time Gaming just got a lot better!
Absolutely loved War For Cybertron, and no movie tie in to ruing it!
There are very few details at the moment and only the above cover image from US mag Game Informer to go on in terms of visuals, but curiously Fall Of Cybertron is being described as a ‘natural successor rather than a true sequel’.
What this is supposed to mean we’re not sure. The only clues in the press release is that the new games involves, ‘the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.‘
That sounds like pretty much the same plot as the last game, so maybe the new one is meant as a sort of mini-reboot. The presence of Grimlock is not only good news for fans of robot Tyrannosaurs but it is also implies that the game’s storyline has to some degree moved to Earth – or at the very least that he’s been there.
Although you can find some more artwork at Game Informer’s website there’s no more info, just a promise of a 12-page preview when the magazine comes out.
Despite only scratching at the surface of what a Transformers game could be War For Cybertron was easily the best attempt so far and a genuinely enjoyable game in its own right. Although High Moon also made disappointing movie tie-in Dark Of The Moon, the two Cybertron games have nothing to do with the films and enjoy a much longer development period.
Fall Of Cybertron is due out next autumn on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (there’s no mention of other formats, you might’ve thought Wii U would be a possibility).
‘Hasbro has worked hand in hand with Activision to create a fully original storyline that details the climactic battles leading to the famed exodus of the Transformers characters from Cybertron,’ said Hasbro man Mark Blecher.
‘Our team at Hasbro is looking forward to exploring and expanding the Transformers story again with an incredible blockbuster video game that will blow fans away next year.’
