Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertron.com member kaliaticus, we report that Rovio has released a new update for the Angry Birds Transformers mobile device game,to include new structures on the map, as well as upcoming features and challenges and two new playable characters, whose identities are yet unknown. Are you still playing the nostalgia-ridden game? In either case, check out some screenshots of the updates below!
Fellow Seibertron.com member Starsaber468 has spotted a new update on the Transformers: Legends blog, detailing the new event for the mobile game, including some new planet-tastic artwork. Check it all out below, and feast your eyes on the cosmic brothers Primus and Unicron!
TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Battle of the Brothers” has begun!
The AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS are locked in fierce battle over an experimental space bridge designed by JETFIRE. GALVATRON, intent on using it to transport weapons of mass destruction straight into enemy territory, orders his forces to use any means to secure it.
A stray shot from someone’s weapon strikes the space bridge, causing it to overload and explode. RODIMUS, JETFIRE, and GALVATRON and their teams are blown backwards through time, to before the creation of Cybertron.
There they discover the two brothers, PRIMUS and UNICRON, locked in titanic combat. The universe trembles with each blow, until finally the both withdraw, summoning forces to their sides to aid in the battle.
GALVATRON, in his madness, decides to ally his DECEPTICONS with UNICRON, ignoring the fact that the destruction of PRIMUS will spell his end as well. Meanwhile, RODIMUS, JETFIRE and the AUTOBOTS, realizing the stakes, throw all of their strength behind the creator of the Cybertronians.
Will PRIMUS prevail over his brother, the Chaos Bringer? Or will UNICRON finish the creator and erase the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS from existence? Find out in TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Battle of the Brothers”!
UPDATE - All players in this Team Battle Episode have a chance of receiving a reward of 40 Battle Cubes from any of the bosses encountered. This is on top of the normal Boss payouts.
Fellow Seibertronian STngAR has pointed us in the direction of the Transformers: Legends mobile device game blog, as a new update rolls out! The second part of the Key to Vector Sigma episode is currently out, and you can read more about it below, as well as checking out the artwork of Aerialbot combiner Superion.
Back on Earth, the DECEPTICONS discover that the key to Vector Sigma is able to transmute whatever it touches into metal. Knowing that they have this, and the might of MENASOR, the DECEPTICONS decide that they will turn the Earth into a new Cybertron.
Teletraan 1 detects the energy of the key being used to convert parts of the area around a major northwestern city into metal, and alerts the AUTOBOTS. The AERIALBOTS join their new allies and head there, intent on stopping the DECEPTICONS from destroying the Earth’s environment with the key.
The STUNTICONS, upon seeing their hated rivals among their newly arrived enemies, charge towards them, intent on turning them into scrap. An instant later, a mighty battle erupts around them and the AERIALBOTS, leaving members of both factions out of commission.
As the fight rages on, MOTORMASTER, DEAD END, and the other STUNTICONS combine to become MENASOR. With a mighty roar, he lumbers onto the battlefield, knocking combatants flying as he storms towards the AERIALBOTS. Seeing the giant approach, they merge to form SUPERION, surprising their rival. Without a moment’s hesitation, they take MENASOR on hand-to-hand.
Can SUPERION turn the tide back against the DECEPTICONS? Or will MENASOR finish off the AUTOBOTS’ newest warriors? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Key to Vector Sigma, Part 2”!
for the moment the game is released in Southeast Asia region. We do apologize for the inconvenience we bring. Thanks.
The website is currently live and provides links to downloads for both Android and iOS, but the action of downloading was unsuccessful for many who tried and there seems to be no further info available outside of what Efun said above.
According to the Transformers: Rising Facebook page, apparently the US version released last week was for English speakers in the Asian areas of the world. The page does confirm that the US version is in development.
We can only hope they'll get the game's issues figured out and that a release will be here as soon as possible, and we'll keep you updated as we find out any new information we get to share with you.
Keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for the latest in news and updates, plus the best galleries around!
You might remember the latest Signature Series event in the Transformers Legends mobile game, featuring Dan Khanna - but we're here to report a new update in the line, with current IDW artist Casey Coller in the spotlight! Check out the Legends blog for more information, and scroll down for more, including the event's artwork.
“Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong! ”
Casey W. Coller, reporting from my underground workstation! (basement studio) I’m honored and ecstatic to be a part of the TRANSFORMERS Legends Signature Series, following in the footsteps of some amazing artists! I had the chance to choose some of my favorite Transformers to include (and it was hard to narrow it down), and I hope you enjoy playing the game! Good luck and have fun!
Thanks to a number of notifications from fellow Seibertronians, including Prowl4 and Kamen_Rider_Kiva, we have the new reveal regarding the Hasbro fan poll for the original Combiner Wars gestalt character! Fans with access to the Transformers app on their mobile device have decided the new Autobot from the Sea of Rust will be Independent - and as you can see below, Grimlock is used as the example. What do you make of this? Let us know in the Energon Pub, after you also check out the three new missions (promoting Off Road, Alpha Bravo, the DeNA Battle Tactics game and the IDW comics) added to the app.
We have received news from DeNA about their first Transformers: Battle Tactics episode, featuring the Stunticon combiner robot: Menasor! Check out the official website or below for more information, and keep scrolling for a look at some of the art associated with the update.
Today DeNA announced the first in-game event for TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, the turn-based tactical mobile game that lets players collect and assemble teams of iconic AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS. The game’s debut event, Menasor’s Might, runs from March 12 through March 18, during which time players can take on the evil Stunticons who have linked to form the ruthless Combiner, Menasor.
For a limited time, players can battle elite new armies, face off against and collect Stunticons, and compete to build the game’s very first six-unit Combiner, the hulking Menasor. With new characters to battle and collect, plus intense PVP combat, fans of Transformers: Battle Tactics won’t want to miss Menasor’s Might.
DeNA and Efun Company Limited are finally bringing Transformers: Rising stateside!
The game will be officially released this Thursday, March 12th on both Android and iOS platforms, and to celebrate the release of the game, Efun is providing users a unique access code that will give them access to $99 worth of in game content and this promotion will run for a limited time.
The game almost didn't make it to the US, as we previously reported here last year, there were no plans to provide US fans with a release of the Transformers: Rising game.
TRANSFORMERS Rising Clarification
As you may have heard, there’s a new DeNA game being developed titled Transformers Rising. We wanted to take a quick moment to address some of the misconceptions surrounding it.
For clarification, this game is being developed by our sister studio in China, and is in no way affiliated with, or a sequel to TRANSFORMERS: Legends.
There are currently no plans for a US release.
With nearly a year's worth of time having passed, all of that has changed as mentioned above, the game will see it's US release later this week. As for the game itself and what it's about, the blurb below will somewhat help with that:
"The game's story takes place in the original Transformers universe, and deals with new exciting conflicts and enemies. In the game, players will recruit classic Transformers and combiners to tackle the thrilling campaign, battle other players, and take down the world boss."
It should be noted that the iOS version of the game will feature a special add-on to the game called "Save The Earth" which can be obtained by scanning the QR code on the main page of the official website: http://abxjg.efunen.com/
All further details (which we'll update as soon as they become available) can be found on the game's website and you can follow the newest updates on their Facebook page, which can be found right here.
Check out the game's trailer below, download the app and then come back to the forums to discuss this big news!
