While we have already seen the gameplay trailer for the upcoming Transformers: Devastation videogame, Activision have also sent along their official press release from San Diego Comic Con 2015 - which also features some additional artwork for the various platforms it'll be released for. Check it all out below, including the trailer once again. Because robots.
Today at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Activision Publishing, Inc. and developer PlatinumGames Inc. released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming third-person action-brawler, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation. Blasting off with a showdown between cosmic rivals, this new in-game footage puts the heavy metal clash of the heroic AUTOBOTS and insidious DECEPTICONS front and center with explosive cel-shaded detail.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation brings Hasbro’s converting robot titans to life with classic Generations styling and modern attitude. This new trailer highlights four of the five playable heroes in the game – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE and WHEELJACK – as well as notorious foes like MEGATRON, STARSCREAM and the towering combiner, DEVASTATOR. Whether leaping into vehicle form to ram enemies at high speed or juggling them in mid-air with a flurry of blinding-fast combos, the dynamic action of TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is so close it’s personal.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to launch later this year on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.

Via the Transformers: Legends blog, we have news and art for the new episode in the mobile device game featuring our favourite transforming robots - get out your amps, turn it up to thirteen and check out below the description for Knights of Unicron!
Even before they were the hottest band in the universe, the Knights of Unicron were still the stuff of legends. Loved by fans from Antilla to Zarak, these true metalheads shredded like no one else could. With the powerful riffs of MEGATRON and SOUNDWAVE, and the crazy vocals from OPTIMUS PRIME, nothing was going to stand in their way, not tonight!
After years of melting faces and blowing roofs off of houses, the Knights of Unicron found themselves in need of new talent and possibly a new pecking order. MEGATRON and OPTIMUS PRIME both vied for the position of frontman and lead singer, each claiming to have the touch.
Into this entered young AUTOBOT JAZZ. An up and coming musician known for his smooth grooves, AUTOBOT JAZZ was eager to prove himself in the Cybertronian music scene. He went to the Knights of Unicron audition with his friends LASERBEAK AND RATBAT in hand, to show the Knights what they could do.
Will AUTOBOT JAZZ and LASERBEAK AND RATBAT make it into the band? Will they win, if they dare? Can the group stand withstand the turmoil within their ranks? How will this look on CH1’s “Behind the Digital Audio File”? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Knights of Unicron”!
Dear TRANSFORMERS Legends Fans,
Please be aware that with the arrival of the Ultra Legendary reward cards, like the mighty MENASOR, the difficulty of our events have increased to rise to the challenge of these and the other, more powerful cards!

Today, DeNA and Hasbro revealed a variety of new character art for TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game coming soon to iOS and Android.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the first game that lets players command a team of both AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters, strategically utilizing powerful abilities to defeat their opponents. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will feature over 75 iconic characters including classic heroes like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee joining forces with baddies like Megatron and Starscream. The art style mixes retro 80’s appeal with an anime twist that will resonate with Transformers fans both young and old.
In addition, here are some character bios DeNA provided to us:
Bumblebee is always ready for anything. He has an arsenal of gadgets designed just for him, which he can use to meet the needs of any mission. No matter where the Decepticons hide - whether they flee to the deepest ocean, or disappear into the clouds - Bumblebee is ready to pursue and destroy them.
Wheeljack was onboard the Ark ship that initially crashed on Earth. Equal parts medic and inventor, most of the Autobots' scientific advances have come from Wheeljack's lab. Enterprising and outgoing, he's always one of the most popular Autobots. His best invention is a near-impenetrable faceplate, which has been handy when volatile prototype inventions have literally exploded in his face. In combat, his seismic batons ward off enemies.
Autobots | Aerialbots (Hunter)
The newest member of the Aerialbots and the only member that is not a jet plane. His assault helicopter mode gives the team a member with VTOL and hovering capabilities, but he cannot match his teammates' top speed. Being the "new guy" and the slowest flyer of the group makes him feel like he has something to prove. Carries four tracker missiles that process a "spark lock" to their targets. With fellow Aerialbots forms "Superion."
There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The war he launched eventually drained his home planet of life. Not even the death of a world could sate his hunger for conquest.
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.
Thundercracker lives on fear. Special materials in his jet frame allow him to unleash controlled sonic detonations that can be heard 200 miles away. Streaking across the sky at Mach 6, he wants his enemies to hear him before they see him. He wants them to know he's coming, and cower in fear at their impending doom.
Decepticons | Stunticons (Soldier)
Nasty and underhanded - would rather be scrapped than lose. Prone to overheating, but possesses the greatest pure speed of any Stunticon. Adopting the alt-mode of an advanced concept Formula One race car gives him a sixth gear the Autobots cannot match, but leaves him with a slightly fragile vehicle mode. His fierce competitive streak and unmatched speed makes him the ideal "tip of the spear" for the Stunticon forces. With fellow Stunticons forms "Menasor."
Transformers: Age of Extinction - The Official Mobile Game unleashes The Silver Knight Event today. Silver Knight Optimus Prime joins The Official Age of Extinction Mobile Game.
Silver plated, supercharged and ready to unleash his force in the latest in-game event, The Silver Knight Optimus Prime comes to Transformers: Age of Extinction - The Official Mobile Game.
