It's the latter. The titular "Dark Spark" will act as a portal between universes that lets the playable characters crossover back and forth per the level gameplay.
For more info, I'd suggest backtracking through this thread to see more videos, trailers, images, press releases, etc., as it all seems to be within this thread.
Wasn't the Aligned
universe meant to be separate from all the other Transformers multiversal streams? I thought they weren't meant to interact with the larger collection of continuities, so Hasbro could come up with a new mythology and not deal with multiversal singularities or Rarified Energon or any of the other McGuffins floating around that allow for these crossovers in the first place.
Well, it's too late, now, since we've already had cases with Aligned Slipstream winding up in Axiom Nexus and BWII Lio Convoy going into the Aligned continuity as Leo Prime.
Though the Aligned continuity remains outside of the mutliverse, travel between the two is still possible (but perhaps a lot harder to do).
Not to mention that the guys who came up with the Aligned continuity's rules that set outside of the mutliverse are no longer with Hasbro, so the new team is free to do what they wish with the previous team's works.
Still, though, with Alpha Trion and Optimus Prime being among the original Thirteen in the Aligned continuity, there's no way on Earth that the Aligned continuity can be a part of the multiverse, so that still keeps it separate.
And, depending on how this game plays out, it's possible that the WFC/FOC parts of the game might not be the actual, main Aligned universe that we've been seeing in the main games, cartoons, comics, and novels, as it could possibly be an alternate universe only based on WFC/FOC, like how "Tales of the Beast Hunters" and Transformers Go! are separate from the main Aligned timeline.
