So does anyone know if there will be special body parts, weapons etc. for getting this like Gears 3. Or is this just a demo with no added bonuses? Because Id really hate knowing that there will always be one body part that I'll never be able to get.

Anyone check their Digital Locker this morning yet? Anyone have their codes? I did see that there is an email in the power up rewards site about the Demo, but not how it can be found.

So, who else loved Vortex's level? I freaking love it! There are few things more satisfying than jamming it until you're right up in somebody's face, switching to robot mode, and killing then in the most amusing way at hand (see: melee or overkill explosives)

Played the demo last night and out of the two, the vortex level was more enjoyable. The levels were not a full playthrough, more like a teaser level. I like the ability to level up your character/weapons at teletran 1 stations and you actually get points/credits from fallen enemies/crates that can be used at the teletran stations and it appears that the credits are also used to unlock some of the numerous character customization parts for multiplayer. In war for cybertron, the shards collected from dead bodies would recharce your abilites, in fall of cybertron, your abilities recharge automatically. It was also cool to play around with the gun arm switch tecnique to take better advantage of shooting behind cover. This game is going to be an epic win and I can't wait for the 21rst.

The hell's a digital locker!? I'm seeing people playing the demo and I don't know how they got it!

Edit: Nevermind, I got it! I got the code!!! I'm downloading it now. It'll probably take all damn day, but oh well. I'm hoping it will be worth it!

Finally got to play it last night. Bumblebee mission is a ok. I did noticed the AI improvement as I tried to flank a decepticon and he kept finding cover and avoiding my shots. Haven't played Vortex mission yet but looking forward to it based on comments here. Multiplayer is still a blast like the old WFC days. I noticed significant lag last night but might be just the one server I happened to be put into through Quick Match. I've had this game reserved at Gamestop since May so can't wait!

Any game play tips for demo so far?

Its nice that the campaign saves your progress as far as leveling up, but for the life of me I can't find the 5th audio log in vortex's level.

I have too much fun zipping around the first section to look for the first three, lol. I haven't found the fifth one either. :-(

Greetings fellow Cybertronians,

The full, legendary Transformers: Fall of Cybertron saga begins on August 21st when the game hits retail stores ... but before that, we want to let you know about our downloadable demo available now on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network.

This feature-packed demo gives fans the opportunity to sample both single AND multi-player modes in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Gamers can experience the explosive first mission as Bumblebee desperately battles to save the Autobot starship under heavy attack from Megatron and the Decepticons. Players will also get to take control of Vortex in a non-linear assault mission, changing from chopper-to-jet-to-robot however they please while engaging in blistering firefights on the ground and in the air. As if that wasn't enough, the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron demo also allows fans to get a taste of the game's robust Transformers character customizer, and take their newly created bots straight into Team Deathmatch and Conquest online multiplayer modes.

In order to provide the best experience for gamers at launch, High Moon Studios will be carefully monitoring the multiplayer action for player feedback and balancing data. Fans are invited and strongly encouraged to direct their comments to the team's Twitter account: @FallofCybertron, https://twitter.com/FallofCybertron.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will hit retail stores here in the U.S. on August 21st. For more information and updates, fans can visit www.facebook.com/TransformersGame and www.TransformersGame.com.

I'm not finding the demo on the PSN Network. I don't think it'll be up to later this evening (eastern time zone), which is when the PSN usually updates.

the US PSN normally updates around 6pm EST every tuesday but there are times when it updates early or later or even never. I played the demo yesterday and i have to say im not that impressed with it, the game play is anything but non linear and the graphics are horrible. There are a few nice additions like the weapon upgrading & the ability to change what hand the gun is in but removing the co-op was a bad idea. Not only can you not replay the levels as another character but you cant replay it with friends so theres really no reason to play it again other than to get collectables (if there are any). The multiplayer customization is a cool idea but needs more, the color selection and how you select them needs to be upgraded and you should be able to make a different character for each faction if you want to not just have the same bot in different colors. I have the feeling that this one isnt going to be as good as the first one, i will save final judgment until i see some reviews on the full game but based off the demo im not going to preorder.

I have to agree with you on the customization issue Megatron Wolf, it seems like they took 2 steps back for the color selection. While I consider WFC to be lacking in colors already, this is just a shame. The only thing that gives them their "claimed" thousands of customizable options is the ammount of parts, and the fact that you can change the shade of your colors from matte to shiny metallic. I'm sorry but I want the freedom to be able to create other characters from the fiction not in the game, my own creations, or throwbacks to other versions of characters ( come one, if you saw a G2 Tcracker colors seeker running around it would crack you all up). I know that alot of people weren't satisfied with the color pallette in WFC and gave feedback on this issue, and unless they prove me wrong in the full game, this just shows me that High Moon doesn't pay that much attention to their feedback, they do somewhat cause they did give us the Dinobots and host migration FINALLY.
Looking to acquire a complete set of the G1 Insecticons (Bombshell, Kickback, and Shrapnel). They dont have to be MISB, have the cards. The TRU re-issues are fine too. The only person that can verify my buying status is CounterPunch as he is the only person I have purchased from.

I wasn't impressed with multiplayer. I'm not even gonna get into what classes are overpowered/underpowered. A lot of depends on the skill of the player IMO. I do like the customization of the different pieces of the tranformers but the color thing sucks. All they did was replace the color chart with pre-made selections and an option to make them shiny. Very disappointing. I miss double jump a lot and not having grenades (other than the scout emp ability) sucks big time. So does having only one ability now. And now a scientist is pretty much a glorified healer who is a much easier target since they eliminated barrel roll. No vehicle abilities/weapons almost make vehicle mode kinda useless. I did enjoy the game play of the missions however. I still have high hopes for escalation as it is fav thing in WFC.

I also must add that the host migration is probably the best thing they did. The ability to swap weapon hands is really nice too.
