In addition to the multiplayer trailer released for the game today, Activision has spelled out some upcoming pre-order offers that are available if you slap down your money early for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. These retailer offers all appear to be specific to the UK, though no doubt other regions will have their own bonus goodies as well.
So, here we go.
If you order early from Game (UK variety, if you can find one still open), you’ll get a retro-tastic unlock code for a pack featuring the 1980s ‘G1 Optimus Prime’ model for both single and multiplayer. The retro bonuses also include a G1-inspired Megatron Gun and Shockwave Blast Cannon, both for single player use only.
Throwing cash at Play.com will earn you an unlock code for the playable Dinobot, Swoop. It’s unclear if Swoop can be used in both single and multiplayer.
Finally, independent retailers of indeterminate number (including Shopto.net) will be able to offer you an unlock code for a ‘Bruticus’ skin, for use in the single player campaign.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be available from 24 August on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
