Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Slated for Fall 2012
Over a year ago gamers got to play for the first time the epic battles between Autobots and Decepticons before they encountered earth in Transformers: War for Cybertron. Next fall, the final hours of the battle leading up to the exodus to Earth will be fought in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
New information for the game will be officially unveiled in the November 2011 cover story of GameInformer. The magazine goes on sale October 14, and will feature artwork and limited edition covers.
“High Moon Studios is an extremely talented development team having raised the bar of gameplay and TRANSFORMERS authenticity in their games,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing.
“TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON is an extraordinary project both for the studio and the TRANSFORMERS gaming legacy — the stakes are higher and the scale much larger than ever before, and we absolutely cannot wait for fans to see all the new characters and epic action that awaits them.”
“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 Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Marketing, Hasbro. “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.”
Personally, I thought War for Cybertron was a pretty good game and kinda went by a little unappreciated. It was probably because the terrible movies and game tie-ins depreciated the brand name around the time of release. But it was a fun and lengthy third-person shooter with plenty of action and great voice work by the original cast. If this sequel follows suit, it should include two campaigns, Autobot and Decepticon, plus online co-op for up to two players and multiplayer modes.
