2010's War for Cybertron is among my favorite games of this console generation. A solid three-player co-op campaign would have been good on its own, but throw in a robust set of multiplayer options, including Escalation mode, a survival mode for up to four, and you had something truly special. Thus, my expectations were high for Fall of Cybertron. While it is a good game, the wholesale removal of multiplayer options in the campaign causes it to fall short from a co-op perspective.
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.
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?
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.
For the third year in a row, fans of giant robots who change into cool vehicles will be getting a Transformers-based video game. Summer 2011 brings the third Transformers film, Dark of the Moon, to theaters, and of course there is the obligatory game tie-in with it. The past two movie games were horrid and average, respectively, and we are hopeful that the trend at improvement will continue. What makes us so hopeful? First of all, the game is being developed by High Moon Studios, who did a bang-up job on War for Cybertron last summer. You may recall that in addition to a highly regarded online vs. component, online campaign co-op for three robots and a five-player survival mode called Escalation were included.
Transformers games have been a real mixed bag, ranging from the awful 2007 movie tie ins all the way up to the sublime War for Cybertron. When we finished up the campaign in the latter, our thirst for Transformers was unquenched, and so we decided to rent Cybertron Adventures for the Wii.
Welcome to Beyond Co-Op, a weekly piece that talks about industry stories that may or may not be related to co-op gaming.
Next month, for the first time, you'll be able to "transform and roll out" with a friend. Transformers: War For Cybertron will feature online drop in/drop out co-op through the entire campaign. As we approach the game's June 22 release date, more characters and a few exclusives have come to light.
You saw the teaser trailer, you got the release window, now we're giving you the official word on Transformers: The War for Cybertron's co-op mode. Three player online co-op with drop-in/drop-out support. Sorry local and split screen fans, there simply isn't enough room on your TV to fit all that metal.
Activision has released a new trailer of their upcoming Transformers action game called War for Cybertron. Fans of the old Transformers will be pleased with the style of the robots, and fans in general should be happy to hear Peter Cullen's voice narrating the trailer as Optimus Prime.
