IGN.com is reporting that Activision and High Moon Studios will be new downladable content for both the PS3, and X-box 360 versions of 'The Transformers War For Cybertron' video game.
Unfortunately for some folks who may have spent some really good money on eBay to get the codes for downloading specific character skins that were made available when pre-ordering the game from certain retailers, a lot of the new DLC is those characters, as well as new maps!
"As detailed in the original leak (by the Xbox Live Marketplace) of the DLC release here, the New Map and Character Pack DLC includes new characters Scattershot and Onslaught, as well as Shockwave, Jazz, and Demolishor, who were originally exclusive to pre-order customers at particular retail locations. The DLC also contains two new multiplayer maps, and also doubles the number of maps for the Horde-like Escalation mode to four."
The DLC is to be made available on July 27th for PSN and XBox Live and will cost $10.00 or 800 MS points.
You can check out the official release statement on IGN here, as well as the IG report about the leak, here.

Fan favorite voice actor, Peter Cullen, has been interviewed by the website, Techland.com.
This interview revolves mainly around Cullen's participation in the newly released TRANSFORMERS- WAR FOR CYBERTRON video game, and how video game voice work is different from other voice work jobs. Fans who have listened to Mr. Cullen in panels at Botcon, or read other interviews, will find some familiar material here.
An excerpt from the interview:
How is the Optimus Prime in War for Cyberton different than other Optimus Primes?
In the game it's perhaps a little different in that he jumps around saying things that are activated by the actions of the player. There will be a consistency in his character but you won't be able to find the same significant emotions he would have with a written script in the movies or cartoons. From what I've heard and what I've seen of the game it's a very interesting combination to have an individual play into, let's say a cartoon, he's now in the cartoon with Optimus Prime and I think that's a very special ingredient to have.
Do you have a routine to get into character?
Well, not really. Generally, I just assume the character that came to me from the very beginning that's based on my brothery Larry who was a Marine Corps captain that served in Vietnam. Larry is 13 months older and when he came home, I noticed a great difference in him. He was more composed and understanding. All his character traits that I saw in him, I applied to the breakdown of the character when I first auditioned for him, so I don't have any problem recalling Optimus whatsoever. His basic components are courage and compassion and dignity and honor and integrity. There's really no energy involved. I just think of my brother and read the words and then he comes out.
You can read the rest of the interview at Techland.com, and then come back here to further discuss your own experiences with Mr. Cullen.

One way a video game is judged is by the amount of copies it sells. If you're a Transformers fan it might be in your best interest to see War For Cybertron to do well, as much as riding on it's success; sequels, more toys, and the image of the Transformers brand. Teletran One gives us sale data for the first week of WFC's release. The game's sold over 100,000 copies worldwide on the Xbox 360, followed up by close to 80,000 copies on the PS3!

Thanks to our friend Jeroen, and a little sleuthing by Seibertron himself, we are pleased to bring you images of a Transformers War for Cybertron Activision UK Promotional toy.
The toy mysteriously brought to our attention by Jeroen at least a month ago when it was promoted via a website, did not seem to be of interest. We had no idea what it was, or what it was related to.
Now we know that this exclusive repaint of Cybertron Legends Starscream was a promotional toy given away in the UK having to do with the War for Cybertron game. The exact details of how many were created, and what the exact parameters of the promotion involved still seem to be a mystery.
Check out the gallery below for what may become a desirable exclusive in the near future.
Hasbro's official website for Transformers has seen a little make over recently, for those who care. Previously the website had been designed around Revenge of The Fallen, now more around the new toys hitting retail shelves around the globe. Check out what's new, including the Transformers Hall of Fame and a section dedicated to the new game, War for Cybertron, by clicking here.
