KABAM AND HASBRO UNVEIL TRANSFORMERS: FORGED TO FIGHT

More Than Thirty Years of Transformers History Collides in an Epic High-Definition 3D Action-Fighting Game


SAN FRANCISCO – December 1, 2016 – Kabam, a world leader of massively multiplayer mobile games for a global audience, and Hasbro Inc. today announced the title and key details of TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, a new high-definition, action-fighting mobile game set in an immersive world. The game will feature authentic Transformers “more than meets the eye” action, allowing players to engage with Optimus Prime, Megatron and many other popular Autobots and Decepticons in a stunning 3D environment. The new title will enter beta testing in select territories soon and will be available worldwide in Spring 2017.

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight will give players access to nearly every era of the franchise’s history, challenging gamers to assemble the ultimate team of Transformers characters, including Autobots and Decepticons from the animated TV series, blockbuster films, as well as fan-favorites from the Transformers comic book series and Hasbro’s line of iconic figures. As fans assemble their team, they will forge alliances, battle other players and dive into a unique storyline that goes beyond good versus evil.

“TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight embraces the best that the Transformers brand has to offer, allowing players to collect the most memorable Autobots and Decepticons from every era of the brand’s thirty-plus year history,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. “We’re excited to work with Kabam to bring this unique mobile game to life, and think fans will be thrilled with the final product.”

In TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, explore an epic new universe where multiple realities collide to form a massive planetary battlefield. Players will assemble a team of Autobots and Decepticons from across time and space to fight against a world of corrupted Transformers and their villainous overlords. The game features amazing visuals, intense one-on-one battles, meaningful robot to vehicle converting action and deep RPG elements. Transformers such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream and Grimlock will level up over time, unleashing powerful new abilities and devastating robot-vehicle attacks.

“The Transformers franchise and its characters are larger than life, and Kabam is working closely with Hasbro to develop a game that lives up to that expectation,” said Mike McCartney, Executive Producer for TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight. “It will be a thrilling experience for long-time fans of the brand as well as newcomers, offering players incredible visuals, action-packed gameplay, and a truly immersive world.”

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight is being developed by Kabam Vancouver, the studio who created Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions, a top grossing game on the App Store.

Via fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster, we have some new information about the Kabam studios mobile MMO featuring our favourite Cybertronians - Transformers: Forged to Fight. Gaming website Gamespot has sourced an interview with both Kabam and Hasbro, which you can view in its entirety here, and some snippets offered below. Read up on the background of the upcoming game - which seems to blend classic Transformers elements with the movieverse - and join the conversation in the Energon Pub!

Developer Kabam and toy company Hasbro today announced Transformers: Forged to Fight, a mobile game based on the well-known franchise.

Described as a "high-definition, action-fighting role-playing game with strategy elements," Forged to Fight claims to offer trademark Transformers action. You will assemble an "ultimate" team of Transformers, including Autobots and Decepticons from across almost every era of the Transformers history, and then do battle. The game is set in a colorful 3D world, and battles take place in a number of varied and unique arenas. Click through the images in the gallery below to get a closer look.

The game is set in a "strange new world where multiple realities collide," which in turn creates a "massive planetary battlefield." So, you know, Transformers stuff. Some of the features include 1v1 battles, RPG elements described as being "deep," and base-rading. Some of the playable Transformers include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream, and Grimlock. These characters can be leveled up through gameplay, unlocking more abilities over time.

Forged to Fight enters beta in some territories soon, and will be released widely across the world in Spring 2017. The game is in development at Kabam Vancouver, which is the studio that made Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions.

[...]

The release teases a "unique" story that goes beyond purely good and evil--what more can you say on that front--and is this canon?

McCartney: We've worked closely with our partners at Hasbro to create the story of our game. In doing so we've ingested every classic cartoon, comic book, movie, that you can imagine. Our team has immersed ourselves in the Transformers Universe in order to understand each character’s unique personality and quirks. As the game begins Optimus Prime is returning to his home planet of Cybertron after many years of conflict on earth. During the course of his travels his ship encounters a strange anomaly in space and crash lands on a strange planet. Through the course of the game Optimus is attempting to unravel the mystery and escape the planet.

[...]

How much freedom are you afforded in the Transformers universe? It's obviously a massive, revered franchise--but I'm guessing you want to push things forward with your own unique voice, so to speak, as well.

McCartney: We work closely with our partners at Hasbro to ensure that we stay true to the franchise and lore established over the course of the last 30+ years. We also take the history of the Transformers franchise very seriously. For example, before we start work on a new character we have a bit of a classroom session for everyone working in that character. Our Transformers experts walk everyone through the history of the character and his / her personality traits. This gets everyone in the right mindset before starting work on a character. With regard to the story and character dialogue, Hasbro has been amazing. They give us the freedom to create our own vision and then feedback if something isn't true to lore, or if we're pushing something too far. For the most part this interaction has been minimal. We're excited about continuing work with Hasbro in the future and we have a lot of ideas we can't wait to collaborate on.

New Characters
Pipes and Offroad are making their way through the Space Bridge in this weekend’s event. Get a first look at the new bots and their special abilities!

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
Pipes (Warrior)Tough, brave and very strong; Pipes notable talent is to emit clouds of toxic, corrosive fumes from his exhaust pipes. Whilst it can melt through 2" inch thick steel plating, it's not something you really want to shout about! Still, he's a good 'bot to have on your team if you need a solid, sturdy and dependable warrior, just... don't get downwind of him.

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
Defensive Rush - Put a protective shield that blocks 80% damage for several seconds, then charge the target. Attracts defenses!

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
Offroad (Warrior)Being the new Stunticon on the block, and not yet trusted by his teammates, Offroad inevitably gets the assignments no one else wants, which actually suits him fine. It gives him plenty of opportunities to show off his extreme-conditions combat training and generally go where no Decepticon has gone (or wants to go) before.If anything, Offroad overcompensates, and ends up making his fellow Stunticons look a bit... pedestrian.

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
Shattering Charge - Rush into combat leaving trails of Glass Gas behind. Affected targets take more damage for several seconds

TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS Rolls Out Super-Sized Update For iOS and Android Devices

Command the Biggest Bots in the Universe as Combiners Enter Real-Time Combat Strategy Game


BOULDER, Colo., November 10, 2016 – Hasbro Inc., Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games today released their biggest update yet to the popular real-time combat strategy mobile game TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, bringing fan-favorite Combiners characters Devastator and Superion from the iconic Transformers universe into TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS. Beloved by fans of Hasbro’s “Transformers Generations Prime Wars Trilogy,” the Combiners will be the most visually stunning and powerfully destructive bots on the battlefield.

Not all bots have the power to combine as these super-sized Combiners are robots formed by teams of five or more designated component bots. The landscape of the battlefield will change as players race to build these new characters and leverage their unique powers and abilities. Along with the new characters, the update will introduce new resources, buildings, and the Combiners themselves in a new campaign based on the first chapter in the Prime Wars Trilogy, Combiner Wars.

“Bringing Combiners into the game was a goal throughout development, and we couldn’t be more excited to have achieved this milestone for Transformers fans,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. “Combiners bring another level of authenticity to the game and a whole new mission for the player to collect, combine and battle at a new level.”

TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS launched in June 2016 topping charts and building a player base of six million downloads. Published by Backflip Studios and developed by Space Ape Games, the game breaks new ground for the genre, pairing authentic Transformers storytelling with fast-paced gameplay, beautiful 3D animation and hundreds of characters with diverse strengths and abilities. The game also features notable storytellers and voice actors from the Transformers franchise, including voice acting from Peter Cullen, the original voice of Optimus Prime, and Frank Welker, the original voice of Megatron.

TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS is FREE to download, features in-game purchases, and is available on Android and iOS devices worldwide, except in Mainland China. Please note that a Wi-Fi connection is required to play.

New Characters

These two are primed for aquatic combat. Seaspray and Octopunch are making their way through the Space Bridge this weekend!

Seaspray
In many ways, Seaspray found his spiritual home on planet Earth, or rather, its oceans.

With no comparable medium on Cybertron, he broke new ground - relishing the newfound freedom of movement and sheer expanse of his territory.

Though well equipped for naval combat, Seaspray's hovercraft mode is vulnerable to enemy fire, and one direct hit would send him to the bottom of the ocean - forever.

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars - Depths of Aquatron Event
Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars - Depths of Aquatron Event
Whirlwind
Summon a devastating tornado that moves to target location dealing damage every second. Stuns and interrupts defenses.

Octopunch
Built for sub-aquatic combat, Octopunch has a passive-aggressive approach to battle.

In other words, he's prone to play a waiting game, drifting serenely and non threateningly before striking with the speed of a manta ray, punching holes in the hull of any passing vessel.

Anything he can sink is fair game, and Octopunch loves nothing more than to pick over his personal wrecks, salvaging what he can.

Balancing Update
Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
COMING SOON
Autobot Jazz & Mixmaster - These bots will have equal stats. This means more damage for Autobot Jazz (but less health) and less damage for Mixmaster (but more health). Overall, this change is not large and will be most visible at the high-end spectrum of the game (where the imbalance was greatest), and helps us make the game more balanced AND more fair for all players across both factions.

The situation involving these bots was neither fair nor balanced. A high-level Mixmaster was able to ‘one-shot’ most of the defenses including Mortars, which was never the intention and more of an accidental overlook on my (Game Designer Adam’s) part. The gap between Mixmaster and Autobot Jazz was quite significant since one received damage boost at the cost of health (Mixmaster) while the other was more resilient at the cost of damage (Autobot Jazz). Given that these bots utilize one of the most powerful abilities in the game, the imbalance grew to uncomfortable scale and had to be addressed.

Abilities currently under investigation:
In order to give you a heads-up and be a bit more transparent, we’d like to share a list of changes that we’re currently looking into. These changes are based on player feedback as well as game data and are mostly buffs to abilities that are not there yet, or small tweaks to incredibly effective (and potentially abusive) strategies that cannibalize other bots’ utility.

There are no timings nor exact details for these yet, and as always we would like to hear your feedback!

• Pleasant surprise to Huffer owners (don’t want to spoil it!).
• Defense Hack range increase.
• Further Cluster Strike improvements.
• Mirage/Breakdown EMP buff - radius/duration increase being probable.
• Line Barrage buff.
• Strafe/Scourge on defense (when used in the Outpost) - possibly will deal reduced damage to enemy bots (currently they are more problematic to attackers than anticipated).
• Divebomb/Windblade ability damage may be slightly reduced and/or ability pricing on repeated use may be increased.
• Range of Ultra Magnus/Galvatron ability (possible small increase).
• Bombing Run buff.

:BOT: Arcee
Appearances... can be deceptive. Quick witted and formidable in battle, Arcee is compassionate to her allies but utterly merciless to her enemies. Streamlined bodywork and light alloy construction only mean she's faster, more agile and ultimately deadlier than most of her fellow Autobots. A master of many weapons, from blasters to swords, ultimately Arcee is a living weapon in her own right.

:CON: Nightbird
Programmed with the skills of a mighty ninja, the non-sentient Nightbird developed a full meta-processor brain after being implanted with one of Bombshell's cerebro shells, which merged with her own simulated intelligence. Nightbird became one of the greatest threats to the Autobots, even more so when - as Bombshell was reformatted - she gained true sentience and freedom of thought.
