ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. ROLLS OUT PRE-ORDER BONUSES FOR PLATINUMGAMES’ TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION


SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Sept. 2, 2015 – Today Activision Publishing, Inc. revealed new in-game DLC it is offering for those who pre-order TRANSFORMERS: Devastation, its upcoming third-person brawler from acclaimed action developer PlatinumGames Inc. All retail and digital pre-orders of TRANSFORMERS: Devastation will receive the following three character skins: NEMESIS PRIME, RED ALERT and GOLDFIRE.

Players will also receive three powerful weapons with their pre-order:

  • The Dark Star Saber, a fearsome sword which radiates waves of dark energy with every swing.
  • The Photon Disruptor cannon for huge damage at short range.
  • The twin Golden Hunter blaster pistols, which cause enemies to drop credits when attacked.



Activision also released a new behind-the-scenes video with the legendary voice of OPTIMUS PRIME, Peter Cullen. TRANSFORMERS: Devastation brings a new energy to Hasbro’s iconic Generations characters, but for Cullen, honoring the qualities that have made OPTIMUS PRIME a hero for audiences for over 30 years is still at the core of this new experience.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation combines PlatinumGames’ magnetic brand of fast-paced gameplay with beautiful 3D cel-shading for one gripping adventure. Five playable AUTOBOT heroes - OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK – will battle MEGATRON and the vile DECEPTICONS in an original story from veteran TRANSFORMERS comic book writer Andy Schmidt.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is scheduled to launch on Oct. 6 on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam. Pre-orders for the game are already available at many major retailers and on the PlayStation®Store; Xbox Games Store pre-orders are expected to open in early September.

We've received a number of notifications from Seibertron.com members about an upcoming collaboration between Nintendo and Hasbro for a Transformers-themed Splatfest - part of the Splatoon game for Wii U consoles. Find out more in the official press release copied below, and choose your side if you take part in the event!

Nintendo and Hasbro Join Forces to Let TRANSFORMERS Fans Take Sides in Splatoon

Are you team Autobot or team Decepticon? Nintendo and Hasbro are joining forces to help you defend your robot allegiances in the Splatoon game for the Wii U console.


Splatoon features themed events called Splatfests that let players pick a preference, such as Autobots or Decepticons, and then compete against the opposing side in online battles. A Splatfest celebration lasts for 24 hours, during which players head into battle and try to rack up Turf War wins for their side. While the Splatfest is ongoing, in-game characters get to wear a special T-shirt that shows which Transformers team has their allegiance. The ink that each team shoots will also be customized to match the color scheme of the chosen side.

Once a Splatfest ends, the side with the most points will be awarded the most Super Sea Snails, items that will allow them to upgrade their gear in the game. The Transformers-themed Splatfest event is scheduled to run starting at 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 28 through 9 p.m. PT on Aug. 29 and is open to all Wii U owners who have Splatoon and an Internet connection.

Splatoon, which is exclusive to Wii U, represents Nintendo’s take on the action-shooter genre. Characters called Inklings can transform into squids as they attempt to cover the play area with their team’s colorful ink and splat opponents. Using an array of inventive weapons, players cover the playing surface with as much of their team’s colorful ink as possible before time runs out. On Aug. 5, a free software update in Splatoon brought a large amount of new content to the game, including two new matchmaking modes, new weapon types, an increase to the game’s level cap and more than 40 pieces of new gear.

There was also an interview about this game on Dualshockers which revealed the game's tech specs and some trivia. Here it is below:

PlatinumGames’ Transformers: Devastation Will Run at 60 FPS on All Consoles, 1080p on PS4/Xbox One

Transformers: Devastation is a game by PlatinumGames, and on top of that, it’s directed by Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance’s Kenji Saito. This means that fast, unrelenting action is one of the game’s main selling points.

In order to support that kind of action, 60 frames per second are almost a must, and Producer Robert Conkey himself confirmed at Gamescom that the game will run at 60 FPS on all consoles (even if he admitted that there might be some dips on PS3 and Xbox 360 in very chaotic scenes, but that’s entirely understandable, while on PS4 and Xbox One the frame rate will be stable).

Resolution-wise, we’ll get 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One, and 720p on PS3 and Xbox 360. Of course PC gamers will get whatever their rig can handle.

We also learned a few more details from Conkey and Saito-san himself:

Activision was the one that went to PlatinumGames with the idea of the game, and discovered that the folks at the house of Bayonetta were big Transformers fans.
The game is not developed by the same team as The Legend of Korra, as PlatinumGames mixes and matches teams for different games. Some developers come from Korra (for instance the producer), others from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and from other games.
At the end of every combo you can trigger a transformation attack, with the right timing. After that, you can chain a fully new combo.
Loot changes depending on difficulty. You have a chance to get better loot the more challenging you choose the game to be.
Taking the visuals directly from the shows would have caused the graphics to look pretty dated, so the team used modern animation techniques like glow shading applied to the entire world.
Animations have been referenced heavily from the old shows, but they have been mixed with PlatinumGames style and responsiveness.
Transformations are a mix of the shows, in which the Transformers “morph,” and of the toys, in which parts are mechanically moved into place.
If you’re wondering, I also got a chance to try the game on PS4, and boy, it was really, really fun. This is definitely a title to watch.
