Transformers: War For Cybertron ‘Reveal’ trailer impressions

Putting ‘form’ back in ‘Transformers’

No, this is NOT from a 'Terminator' movie

Gone are the insectified pieces of (s)crap that appeared in Michael Bay’s blockbuster flicks. This is how Transformers should have always been. The latest entry in the popular ‘Transformers’ franchise  focuses on the war between the Autobots and Decepticons BEFORE Earth. It will probably explore the reasons behind this million-year conflict and also the backstories behind many of our favourite Transformers such as Starscream and Bumblebee.

The three stooges... I mean Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Ratchet

As seen from the trailer there’ll be missions both on ground AND in the air. Whether you’ll be able to switch between the two remains to be seen, though in my opinion, it’s a futile dream. You can never trust trailers, but this game looks to be a hit, probably adopting a primarily 3rd-person perspective and switching to the 1st. From what we can see, there’ll most likely be a developed cover system, something which has been emphasised in a lot of other games such as Killzone 2 and Gears of War.

That's right Bumblebee. Do what you always do best... hide~

What has been made clear is that there’ll be bucketloads of munchkins/fodder that players will obviously need to plough through. Hopefully some level of difficulty will be present in the finished game, something that isn’t quite evident in the trailer…


What will probably determine Cybertron’s level of awesome will be the announced multiplayer component in the game. Few details have been released, but I’m assuming you won’t be playing as fan favourites online, but rather customising your own Autobot/Decepticon.

It’s still early days, and there’s not too much that can be divulged from a trailer that is completely CGI. However the environment the game is set in will give High Moon Studios the freedom it needs to craft a game that is easy on first-timers to the age-old franchise and engaging for fanboys. For the time being it’s got my interest. Transformers: War for Cybertron is set to be released in the US later in 2010.

Megatron and Icecream... I mean...

    lol the first was not bad. the second was pretty much “how many times can show Megan Fox in tight-fitting clothing?”

    I still don’t know how the game will work. Will you play as Optimus Prime/Megatron or some other transformer? Would be interesting to find out…..
