gameinformer continues with their month long Transformers: Fall of Cybertron coverage with a new article that focuses on fan favorite, Jazz. The article discusses his character, transformation, gameplay, and some aspects that didn't make it into the game. Click here to read the full article, "Fall Of Cybertron Deep Character Dive: Jazz", over on gameinformer. Be sure to check out the screenshots mirrored below.

Today, we go deep on one small area of gameplay and character – a close-up look at the character Jazz. This Autobot should be familiar to anyone who watched the old 1980s cartoon, but he hasn’t had a central role in the Transformers storyline in recent years. That equation changes with Fall of Cybertron, as Jazz steps up as one of the main playable characters.

Like all of the characters in Fall of Cybertron, Jazz and the levels he plays are built to complement one another. The challenges and battles you’ll face match Jazz’s particular skill set and strengths. Along the way, you’ll get to know more about this redesigned character, including a unique gameplay mechanic that only Jazz can implement.

Dinobots have been the talk of the fandom since it was revealed that Grimlock and company would be featured in next year's Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Now we have some Dinobot (or would it be Dino-nots?) news from the third-party front. Some new prototype images of TFC Toys' Dino-combiner have surfaced on ACToys. All five figures are revealed in dinosaur mode, as well as their combined form. Like TFC Toys' Hercules set, the Dino-combiner will also feature individual weapons that combine. Even if you're not a fan of the set's combining gimmick these figures look as though they could serve as good individual Dinobots. Of course that will depend heavily on their final colors.

Just in case you're wondering who the other combiner is in image three, it's another TFC Toys project based on Star Cats Rescue Team, a Chinese cartoon. While not a Transformers related project, it appears a Denfensor-ish repaint may be in the cards based on the last image mirrored below.

gameinformer has published their latest exclusive Transformers: Fall of Cybertron article, "Transformers: Resurrecting The Dinobots". In addition to awesome art and screenshots mirrored below, the article also contains two videos, "The Story Behind the Dinobots" and "Designing the Dinobots", which can be viewed by clicking here.

Two things unite every sane person in the world: pumpkin pie and the unrivaled awesomeness of dinosaurs. In the '80s, Hasbro capitalized on the popularity of these beasts by creating the memorable team of elite Transformers called the Dinobots. Once a pillar of Transformers fiction, the proud Dinobots went the way of the dodo as the series chose to emphasize other characters. Thankfully, High Moon Studios couldn't let them go, as the Dinobots return to the fight in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Led by the robotic Tyrannosaurus Rex named Grimlock, these five transforming robots will be an intricate part of the story. Check out the first video below to learn how High Moon Studios built a new origin story that logically allowed for robotic dinosaurs on the alien planet of Cybertron.

gameinformer has posted their latest Transformers: Fall of Cybertron article, "The Enemies & AI Of Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron". Click here to learn more about the game's IA, meet some of new enemies, and check out more screenshots.

High Moon has improved the responsiveness of all of its enemies for Fall of Cybertron, but that’s only one of the key changes to the AI. In order to communicate how its enemies react to the world, High Moon has implemented some overt animation and sound effects that help distinguish each character. Whenever possible, enemies in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron undergo physical transformation changes that will cue players into enemy behavior and weaknesses.


Image
If a player hides from the Guardian’s battle mode, the Guardian will shift into investigate mode and begin scanning the environment for signs of their prey


Image
Leapers don’t go into a full transformation, but they do shift into a wedge shape as they jump into the air. This air attack is one of the Leapers’ more powerful moves. Players will have to dodge this move and attack from behind in order to defeat these monstrosities


Image
Crawlers will not attack while in flight, so their unique transformation sound signals players that it is time to crawl out of cover and find a better firing position. This is a good example of how High Moon’s visual and auditory cues aid players in combat


Image
Enemy AI often influences a character’s design. For example, the Guardian’s battle mode is big and bulky, which represents how tough a challenge the Guardian will be in combat

gameinformer continues their exclusive Transformers: Fall of Cybertron coverage with their latest article "Animating The Transformers". Lead Animator Jason Diaz gives us a look at the process in a series of videos featuring Optimus Prime, Grimlock, and Jazz. There is also an additional video explaining the difficult process of bringing expression to the robotic characters. Click here to to view their videos.

The team at High Moon is laser-focused on creating an authentic vision of the Transformer characters -- one that is true to the roots of the character concepts, while still moving the fiction and visual treatment forward in exciting new directions. That philosophy is on display in a big way through the animation work that is going into Fall of Cybertron. Each character's unique transformations is built to represent the nature of the character. Optimus Prime pounds the ground with the force of a gorilla. Jazz flips and twists like a break dancer. Grimlock morphs into a destructive monster like an uncontrollable hulk bursting forth from a smaller form.

gameinformer has posted a couple of video interviews with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron game director Matt Tieger. Click here to view the interviews.

Matt Tieger has to direct Optimus Prime. He has to direct the player's experience and he has to direct High Moon Studios as they work on Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. While technically a sequel to 2010's War for Cybertron, due to some radical changes in story structure and gameplay, Matt Tieger prefers to call Fall of Cybertron a spiritual successor. We had a chance to sit down the game's director to talk about his history in the gaming industry and what it is like to be a key player in one of the largest franchises in entertainment.
