Fans of giant alien robots should be pretty hyped. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is rolling out to store shelves today. The sequel to the excellent War for Cybertron will cover the last days of the Transformers' home world. Expect to see Optimus Prime, Megatron, Grimlock, Metroplex, and many others in action.
If you're like me, you've been ho-humming through the summer, waiting for the onslaught of upcoming fall games. There have been a few shiny distractions here and there, but nothing has really held my interest, until today. I fired up the new demo for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and lo and behold, I actually wanted to play it again, and again, and maybe even one more time after that. I don't know if I'm that starved for the next big thing, but this demo at least provided an appetizer.
When Transformers: War for Cybertron dropped, I was surprised how fun the 3 player co-op campaign was. Rather than build on this quality for the sequel, Fall of Cybertron, High Moon Studios have removed campaign co-op and created Escalation Mode instead. One way to salve any self inflicted wounds brought about by this depressing turn of events is to bring back some of the retro skins of the original cartoon series. This is exactly what you get if you preorder the game via Gamestop - Old Skool Optimus!
Hot off the digital presses, we have some new Transformers: Fall of Cybertron screens as well as a new action-packed video for your viewing pleasure. While the main focus is on the multiplayer mode, there is some co-operative Escalation footage in the video.
Transformers: Fall of Cyberton has got itself a shiny new release date: August 21. This is one of those rare occasions when a game's street date is actually moved up. Sure it's only a week, but I'll take any oasis in the desert that is the summer release schedule. The amount of triple A co-op games coming out between now and then is slim.
Today, High Moon studios announced Transformers: Fall of Cybertron would be bringing back War for Cybertron's cooperative Escalation mode. This is awesome news, because that means we can start covering it again! I was able to speak with Activision's JD Livergood, the associate producer for the latest Transformers game. We discussed the revamped Escalation mode while I got some hands-on time with a few single player missions.
A sweet new trailer announcing the release date for Transfomers: Fall of Cyberton has landed at Gamespot. It looks incredible -- if you're into quick cuts and roboticide. I know, I know, who isn't? I don't even mind the dubstep. This is one of the few videos where the devil's disco is appropraite, because it sounds like robots murdering each other. Check out the 'splosions and stuff. The release date is at conveniently located at the end of the video, as well as this article.
Things have not been going well for Transfomers: Fall of Cybertron. Sure, it's the sequel to what many believe is one of the greatest Transfomers games ever made. It had a fantastic debut trialer at last year's VGAs, and it features everyone's favorite Dinobot, Grimlock. What could go wrong?
Bad news (again), PC gamers. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron won't be coming to that fancy keyboard-and-mouse console known as the Personal Computer. I suppose we shouldn't be surprised, since last fall we heard that the next Transformers game would be dropping the co-op campaign. Nevertheless, it's still disappointing to continually see PC gamers being left on the side of the road, and in this case the reasons are also alarming.
Disappointing news today as the official Game Informer issue has reached Co-optimus HQ bearing the bad news about the upcoming Transformers game. According to their exclusive preview article of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the game is dropping the three player co-op campaign that was a staple of the previous game in the series.
I am a Transformer purist at heart, enjoying the original teams of Autobots and Decepticons the most. As the years progressed more and more strange Transformer types were added; from Dinobots to Fairytwinklecons. One group that stood out were the Combaticons and their ability to form into the giant Bruticus. According to GameStop, Bruticus will stomp his way into Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. As an added bonus High Moon Studios have also released a teaser trailer for the game.
Transformers: War for Cybertron was one of the best co-op experiences of last year, allowing up to three players to pound Cybertron into rubble. The latest Game Informer magazine has announced that a sequel is coming in 2012; Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
