Activision announces Transformers: War for Cybertron

  • Activision has confirmed that High Moon Studios is developing Transformers: War for Cybertron.

    According to company spokesperson Rob Kostich, the game takes players to the Transformer home world for a "new look" into the epic civil war which spawned one of the most brutal sci-fi rivalries of all time.

    "Transformers: War for Cybertron is an origins story, taking players on a gripping, adrenaline-fueled journey that precedes the Transformers characters' arrival on Earth," said Kostich.

    ?"The game transports players to a living, metallic planet where they will battle as giant converting robots in single player, online co-op or head-to-head multiplayer matches that are fully immersive from start to finish."

    Aaron Archer, a Senior Design Director at Hasbro, explained that the game illustrates a "critical event" in Transformers lore which will be used as canon for future titles and movies.  

    Indeed, Transformers: War for Cybertron is expected to feature two distinct storylines told from the perspective of the rival Autobot and Decepticon factions.

    War for Cyberton will be released for a number of platforms, including the Xbox 360, PS3, Windows PC, Wii and Nintendo DS. ??
