Transformers: War for Cybertron Details Revealed to Also Be Awesome


?The kids at TFormers got an ealy look at Acitivision’s War for Cybertron game, and I’m totally jealous. Luckily, they were kind enough to write a lengthy article about what they saw of the game, which I can summarize part of here:

? The game will be primarily focus on teams of 3
? It’s made for co-op play, but the computer controls your two Transformer partners when you don’t have other players
? There will be campaigns for both Autobots and Decepticons
? Each bot has a class, a la Team Fortress; e.g. Optimus is a brawler, Ratchet’s a medic, and Bumblebee is better at long-range fighting
? Each Transformer has a replenishible ability and an ability that needs Energon
? Energon will be in cube form, straight out of G1, and there will be different types
? Weapons actually transform themselves as part of the bots — and bots transform themselves into things such as turrets
? You will fight either Omega Supreme or Trypticon

…and there’s more, but really, you owe it to yourself to read the TFormers article — not only are there more details, but there’s more new art, too. The big worry about this game is that it’s been rushed, because we only first heard about it a few months ago, and it’s due out in May. However, we don’t know that it has been rushed for sure, and we do know that every single detail about the game released so far is totally, totally rad. So I’m saying the odds are looking good, people. The odds are looking good.
