Two new characters have been unveiled as members of the Transformers: War for Cybertron cast today. The three player co-op title already has a few fan favorites like Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, and Megatron - but very few other characters are actually confirmed as playable.
Now we know that Skywarp and Ironhide have joined the cast of Decepticons and Autobots, respectively. Each character has a primary weapon as well as special abilities like Cloak, Dash and Whirlwind. Of course, each character also transforms into a vehicle, with Ironhide swinging into a truck like shape and Skywarp into a futuristic looking fighter jet.
Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
Abilities: Whirlwind, Dash
Description: Ironhide is the oldest Autobot on the team. He is the slowest Autobot on the team. He is also the meanest, toughest, orneriest Autobot on the team. He is most definitely yesterday’s model, but he was built to last – seemingly forever. He is a soldier, first and foremost, but his tough exterior hides a deep compassion for life. He is one of Optimus’ most trusted advisors on all matters.
Decepticon Class: Scout
Primary Weapon: Thermo Rocket Launcher
Abilities: Cloak, Dash
Description: Skywarp possesses cloaking technology which he uses to sow destruction upon his enemies. Skywarp isn’t the most intelligent Transformers character in the Decepticon force, so he needs to be continually guided and told what to do. Regardless, once set upon a path, Skywarp will achieve his goal with quiet, ruthless efficiency.
Transformers: War for Cybertron hits the 360, PS3, and PC on June 22nd. Players choose a side in the epic battle between Autobots and Decepticons on their home planet of Cybertron.
