One question since I am new to the PS3/Xbox stuff: Is this only downloadable for a limited time? I will probably get a PS3 or Xbox 360 for Christmas this year, and I want WFC to go with it.

Usually no; you can still get uploads for the ROTF PS3 game on the PS network.

Damn. Why does it seem there is so little PC love for this game.

Though I expect the DLC will come out for PC...eventually.

So what about DLC for the PC? Are they abandoning the PC version of the game?

To the people that keep asking... I can almost guarantee that the PC version will not get DLC for two very simple reasons. The vast majority of PC gamers will not pay for "DLC" when that ****'s known as patches on the PC and it's free. Sooner or later the mod community will get ahold of this game, and begin modding the **** out of it. Gaming companies know this and almost never will risk putting up characters to download for pay on PC. It's not like on 360 or PS3 where if you mod your console or the game itself you get banned.

Looks like both are going to be out on the 27th now. The first IGN report did show the two different dates but its changed now.

You have to remember that with the PC there are at least 3 different versions; PC, MAC, and Steam. They probably have to work out the different versions before releasing it to PC. PC DLC usually comes out a bit later than the consoles, because, put simply, it is easier to get it up and selling on them.

- Three previous retailer-exclusive characters: SHOCKWAVE, DEMOLISHOR and JAZZ, playable in the aforementioned modes

- Four brand new maps:

o Escalation maps DISTRICT and FORSAKEN
o Multiplayer maps HAVOK and FORTRESS

The Transformers: War for Cybertron Map and Character Pack will launch next week.

I still hope that the 1st Autobot Escalation map isn't the only one you can survive past Wave 15 in playing with Average players..

Scattershot/Scattorshot what's the difference? :lol:

He's obviously based on the Cybertron version ;)


I find that really interesting. Almost as if they've retconned Cybertron Scattorshot into the G1 continuity. That, or Scattershot & Scattorshot are two completely different characters.

Well, this new WFC/Prime continuity seems to be a mish-mash of previous continuites (what with demolisher and the Arielbots etc) and I would assume that Scattershot and Scattorshot are two different characters.

Personally I think this WFC Scattorshot looks more like Hotspot, but that's just me :)


Definately changing my chassis to Scattorshot and Onslaught for those classes/factions though.

What's the difference?

Scattershot the Technobot leader was cool. A combiner leader and badass brawler.

Cybertron Scattershot was a whiner with an annoying drawl.

While I'm always glad to see characters retrofitted into G1 like WFC has done with Slipstream and Demolisher, I just feel Technobot Scattershot was a more worthy candidate.

I mean since when is Cybertron Scattershot a fan favourite?

Still I suppose if it means he's adding to the G1 cast, I can live with that. As long as he's not replacing the original. We already have 2 Flames, Sky Highs and Tracers so a 2nd Scattershot is acceptable.

On a more positive note, I'm glad to see some UT bots like Scattershot and Demolisher becoming part of G1. It was nice to see Botcon Leozack fit the Energon Starscream mold into G1. I can now use the 3 Energon Starscreams as generic G1 Air Warriors/Seekers.

Great game by the way.

Ah, woe is the PC buff who cries for fairness in the timing of DLC.
Hark on the horizon is hope for said player and the thousands of srceams from the console gamer he once scorned.
For inevitably will have far more extra content for a much lower cost in akin to the G.E.C.K. Modual from Fallout 3. PC gamer you will get all the content us console players will enjoy and then some. I would not be crying for "fair" treatment about release dates.

I know the difference :lol:

And Cybertron Scattershot is no more of a fan favourite than Demolishor.

I think he was chosen just to give the Autobots another tank, since Warpath is currently the ONLY Autobot Soldier chassis (like how Onslaught was introduced to give the Decepticons another Leader chassis.)
It's an alt-mode that the 'bots are a bit light on when compared to the Decepticons.

HERESY!!! BURN! BURN! (lol, jk :P )

Def liking this pack, big win all around. Not sure where folks are coming from with this sentiment that preordering for the exclusive chars was some sort of waste: depending on where you reserved your copy, you got to play as one of three of these characters from the day of the game's release instead of waiting for this dlc to drop over a month later, and the least you had to do was make a $5-10 down payment on the game before the release date.

Anyway, anybody else thinkin' Dinobots & Constructicons for the next 2 packs? Maybe roll 'em into one if you exclude new maps...

I'm thinking of a Boss fight with Devastator. First the Constructicons attack you seperately and then they form Devastator after you do enough damage. And yes I would be so in love with a sequel that supported the Dinobots. Even dinobots attacking autobots like the G1 series would be fine. Of course they have to convert back at some point to the autobot side but it would be so full of greatness...oh to dream.

Finally, I kept envisioning a way they could support you playing a combiner like Devastator or Superion, etc. Perhaps in campaign mode you play with the usual 3 player co-op or AI and then once you get to a designated area you can form Devastator with other decepticons that exist in that area. I could see this being a great Multiplayer or Escalation mode as well if the level could be large enough for such a combiner ( or you can't use this ability in certain areas of the level just as it won't allow you to transform at times ). The ability would be for leaders only and would be something you could activate after a kill streak, like +7.

When's this going live? It's already the 27th. When does Microsoft update their servers to roll out new DLC? Because I'm sick of turning on my 360, logging into my account, checking Marketplace, getting dissappointed/annoyed, and turning my system off every hour.

Double post bump with content.

http://forum.teamxbox.com/showthread.php?t=582364

Assuming that's a reliable source and it hasn't changed in 2 years we have to wait until 2 am PST/3 am MST/4 am CST/5 am EST for our dlc to go live? Who's bright idea was for it to make it 2 am PST instead of Midnight PST? That's just stupid.

I've stayed up all night for nothing anyway. What's another hour and a half?
