Autobots and Decepticons will be engaging in a world-altering battle starting today. Transformers: War for Cybertron, published by Activision and developed by award-winning High Moon Studios, brings the legendary Transformers property onto consoles, which has been released today. The difference between this version and the previous ones? This one isn’t one of those despicable movie-to-game concoctions that Hollywood seems to enjoy crapping out, and is much more traditional in the sense of both story and visuals.
The game, which takes the final war on their home planet of Cybertron, comes complete with full online co-op and a “variety of deep, competitive multiplayer modes including the ability to create your own Transformers character for the first time ever in a video game.” What? Yes, folks. You will now be able to craft your own Transformer to your liking. We’re not too sure what choices you have, but I highly doubt you’ll be able to turn your Autobot or Decepticon into a retro toaster or a Ford Mustang, as I’m pretty sure those things don’t exist in Cybertron.
Transformers fans obviously know the outcome of what happens after the war, but it will definitely be a great experience going through what both sides endured during their final battle on their home planet. Plus, fighting with/beside Optimus Prime is always epic. He is the most kick-ass thing next to kettle corn.
Transformers: War for Cybertron is available now on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
So who out there besides me is going to get this game? Anyone?
