Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on October 18, 2011 | News,Video Games |

For all those who enjoyed playing War For Cyberton, you’ll be pleased to hear that a ‘natural successor rather than a true sequel’ is on the way in the shape of ‘Fall of Cybertron’.

The details so far are somewhat sketchy from the visuals we have seen on the cover of US magazine Game Informer, but Fall of Cybertron is believed to be the next Transformers game being released by Hasbro, and is already causing quite a stir following the release of the trailer (below) starring Grimlock.

What to expect is still very much unknown but the press release states that the new games is about:

“the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their storied exodus from home.”

The fact that Grimlock has been mentioned sounds like a positive for those who like robot Tyrannosaurs but it also sounds as though the plot of the game has, at least in part, moved to Earth.

War For Cybertron may have showed us only a glimpse of what a Transformers game is capable of but it has undoubtedly been the best effort so far. It is an immensely enjoyable game to play. The tie-in game with Dark Of The Moon didn’t satisfy fans but the two Cybertron games are totally unrelated and far more effort seems to have been put into making them.

Fall of Cyberton is due for release is the Autumn of 2012 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with no news yet on it being released on other formats. The new Wii U console will no doubt also be a format the game will be released on.

Hasbro state that they have created an original storyline, working with Activision, with battles that lead up to the exodus of the Transformers machines from Cybertron. We will have to wait and see just how original their storyline is when the game is released in time for Christmas.
