On the last day of BotCon 2012 the Activision Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and JAGEX Transformers: Universe MMO panels were held. Unfortunately the battery in the camera I was using died before the panels were over, but I managed to get a few images from the Activision presentation. There wasn't a lot of new information revealed, but here's a quick run down.

The Activision panel, which consisted of Aaron Archer, Matt Tieger, and a few other Activision employees, actually started off with a brief presentation of the Transformers: Prime game they are developing for the Nintendo platforms.

  • They're hoping for a holiday release date
  • Brawler style game play
  • All the voice actors from the show are on board
  • Based largely on the events of seasons one and some of two
  • A trailer of cut scenes was show, but no actual game play

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

  • They feel it surpasses it's predecessor in everyway
  • 18 upgradeable weapons
  • Cliffjumper(voiced by Nolan North) and Jazz have "buddy" vibe, they wanted to explore Cliffjumper's history due to his role in Transformers Prime
  • They feel they nailed Grimlock's appearance (Matt really, really likes Grimlock!)
  • Looked to the comics to establish the connection between the Dinobots and Shockwave
  • The Generations Fall of Cybertron toys have been a joint collaboration between HMS and Hasbro with the figures designed in-step with the game models
  • Multiplayer Customization - Unprecedented ability to craft your own Trasformer
  • Head, torso, upper/lower arms and legs, wings, etc are all customizable
  • Transformation will look natural no matter what design you choose
  • Still no plans for a PC version

Transformers: Universe MMO

Panel consist of Aaron Archer, Eddy Dew, Steve Huckle, and Kerry Vero.

  • Free to play on any browser with Java, should look and play like a console game
  • Based in the Transformers Prime continuity, but independent of the show
  • Third person POV, with some camera adjustment
  • There will be multiple character classes to revealed later with 5 classes available at the launch
  • Probably no class changing, though you can create multiple characters of varying classes
  • Trailer was shown, but did not feature game play
  • No beast modes or flight modes will be available for the launch, though they hope to add flight modes soon
  • Character appearance will change with modes and upgrades
  • Possible Beta version by the end of the year
  • Humans are in the game, but only as part of the environment
