Activision has announced that Transformers: War For Cybertron is now in development by High Moon Studios, and a trailer has been released to give gamers an idea of the setting.
Players will find themselves on the Transformers’ home world of Cybertron, just prior to the epic civil war.
“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 Rob Kostich, head of marketing at Activision Publishing.
“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.”
There are two campaigns in T:WFC, the Autobot one that tells of heroism in an effort to save the planet, and the Decepticon storyline that portrays their unquenchable thirst for power to control the universe.
For the first time in a Transformers game, players can go head to head with others in team-based and co-op matches, as well as choose from a selection of online multiplayer options.
The game will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS and the PC and will be out sometime next year.
