Description

Taking place on the Transformers home planet of Cybertron, Transformers: The War for Cybertron tells the story of the Transformers long before they came in contact with Earth, which had been previously explored in the games based on the 2007 and 2009 movies.

A third-person action game utilizing the Unreal Engine to render the robots and their environments, players can choose to side with either the Autobots or Decepticons in single and online co-op campaigns for up to three players. Each side features its own story and missions in which the player can run, jump, shoot and of course transform. In single player mode the player is accompanied by two fellow Transformers which can be either AI or player controlled. Being a Transformers game, a key element is the ability to transform at will and thus choose between walking robot mode or driving or flying vehicle mode to explore the game's environments. Both modes offer different forms of mobility and weaponry.

Online multiplayer is available and allows players to configure their own Transformers character from one of four classes to duke it out in six different multiplayer modes such as Deathmatch, Code of Power, or Countdown to Extinction.

Reprising his role as Optimus Prime is voice actor Peter Cullen whose involvement with the role goes back to the Transformers' beginning in 1984.

Trivia

Action Figures

Like all things Transformers, eventually the toys came into the equation. The Transformers Generations line has been used to re-vamp popular and classic characters in fresh forms, or other elements outside whichever movie or television show is currently released, and this line is where characters from War for Cybertron have made an appearance. Four characters found in War for Cybertron initially found their way into the Transformers Generations line: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, and Soundwave. Rather than directly referencing the War for Cybertron game, the characters are listed as "Cybertronian Soundwave" or "Cybertronian Optimus Prime." Descriptions on the backs of the cards tend to be somewhat generic, however the characters resemble their forms from the game.

Preorder Bonus

Customers who pre-ordered the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version of the game from either Amazon.com or GameStop were given special codes to unlock Decepticon characters, respectively Demolishor and Shockwave, for multiplayer.
