Activision gives us a look the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron G1 Retro pack, which features G1 Megatron Gun and Shockwave Cannon for use in single player and of course the G1 Optimus Prime skin. This FOC video trailer homages the famous scene from the original Transformers animated movie from 1986 when Optimus Prime takes on the Decepticons in Autobot City. In addition, the background music is none other than fan favorite Stan Bush's "The Touch". Check out the embedded video below.

Why is it that anytime The Touch plays with Transformers footage I feel all giddy? I loved this. Having a G1 truck form Prime makes no sense since this takes place during the time of the Dinosaurs but whatever. Also, I'm not rushing out to preorder to get this (no shops here do bonuses) and it will eventually be DLC anyways.

That G1 Optimus body looks so out of place in this game. :lol:

Not to mention that his transformation makes it look as though the truck's front literally morphs into the Robot's chest instead of, you know, being the chest (or at least believably reconfiguring into it instead of meshing and molding into a new shape). :roll:

Still cool, though.

And kind of misleading since "The Touch" has been stated to not be in the game, even though they said there will be a Stan Bush song in it (just not "The Touch").

Best. DLC trailer. Ever.

Can't wait to play as him when the game comes out. Hoping I get the preorder from GameStop for my birthday...

When Prime beckons the Autobots to attack, was that Autobot that transformed Hound? :shock:

Sweet movie machinima aside, the aesthetic doesn't work with the game, IMO. If FOC is anywhere near as good as WFC, I will be chuffed :)

It doesn't make any LESS sense than the Stan Lee skin in the recent Spider-Man game. It's a little salute, and something us old-timers and the GeeWunners will enjoy, that's all.

i dont have to be from the 80's to know that was awesome. and they did a good job repressenting the scene well too...

Doesn't strike me as odd at all. Clearly the Animated Movie was the pinnacle of Transformers (least for many fans) and isn't really rivaled by any other TF Movies. Just trying to add as much awesome into the game as possible it seems. (The movie games had G1 skins too, coz they all wanted to leech off the awesomness from many years ago :D)

"leech off the awesomness..." DANG RIGHT!

and i agree that its not wierd for this to happen, plus im sure the series(the videogames) WAS meant to be g1, Hasbro just wanted it to be for Prime since i guess not many people who buy the games know or care for g1. im sure this trailer was meant for the hardcore fan, to get us to buy incase we some how didnt already.(in all honesty i havent cuz i wanna know if this is coming to the WiiU or if the 3ds version will be any good, if not then TO THE PC!!!i own a 360 but i cant get internet on that so multiplayer would be a waist.)
