Saturday mornings were made by cartoons like Transformers and GI Joe. Kids got up at 7AM to watch their favorite Autobots and Decepticons battle it out. So when Transformers: War for Cybertron on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC hits on June 22 gamers will be able to take control of their favorite “Robots in Disguise”. The identity of two more of the playable metal heroes and villains who will appear in the game have been released. Take a brief look at both characters:
Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
Abilities: Whirlwind, Dash
Description: Ironhide is the oldest Autobot on the team. He is the slowest Autobot on the team. He is also the meanest, toughest, orneriest Autobot on the team. He is most definitely yesterday’s model, but he was built to last – seemingly forever. He is a soldier, first and foremost, but his tough exterior hides a deep compassion for life. He is one of Optimus’ most trusted advisors on all matters.
Primary Weapon: Thermo Rocket Launcher
Abilities: Cloak, Dash
Description: Skywarp possesses cloaking technology which he uses to sow destruction upon his enemies. Skywarp isn’t the most intelligent Transformers character in the Decepticon force, so he needs to be continually guided and told what to do. Regardless, once set upon a path, Skywarp will achieve his goal with quiet, ruthless efficiency.
