Activision has sent us two more War For Cybertron reveals and with it comes big names. These are a bit more iconic than the previous reveals, as we get character profiles and images for Ironhide and Skywarp. Check them out below!

IRONHIDE
Autobot
Class: Soldier
Chassis: Truck
Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
Abilities: Whirlwind, Dash
Description: Ironhide is the oldest Autobot on the team. He is the slowest Autobot on the team. He is also the meanest, toughest, orneriest Autobot on the team. He is most definitely yesterday’s model, but he was built to last – seemingly forever. He is a soldier, first and foremost, but his tough exterior hides a deep compassion for life. He is one of Optimus’ most trusted advisors on all matters.

SKYWARP
Decepticon
Class: Scout
Chassis: Jet
Primary Weapon: Thermo Rocket Launcher
Abilities: Cloak, Dash
Description: Skywarp possesses cloaking technology which he uses to sow destruction upon his enemies. Skywarp isn’t the most intelligent Transformers character in the Decepticon force, so he needs to be continually guided and told what to do. Regardless, once set upon a path, Skywarp will achieve his goal with quiet, ruthless efficiency.

Member vegetacron has picked up this month's issue of Game Informer, where they have a feature on War for Cybertron, which will see release on June 22nd! Continue reading for the summery!

I just got this month's Game Informer and they have a preview of WFC. It seems that yes, alt modes will be restricted to class. There are 4 alt modes: Car, truck, tank, and jet.

You can pick the chassis, which is an aesthetic choice, paint your bot, name your bot, and then choose a custom weapon loadout, 2 custom abilities, and 3 upgrades.

There are 3 upgrade slots: Offensive, defensive, and "general". The offensive and defensive upgrades are unique to the class, while the 'general' upgrades are available for all classes. For example, for scouts, you can take a speed increase as a defensive upgrade skill and less weapon recoil as a general upgrade. Theres also a Call of Duty-type perk system that will allow you to unlock new weapons and upgrades.

They state in the single/co-op player mode that there are 2 unique abilities in robot mode and 1 in vehicle mode. 1 is a consumable that uses energon shards that you collect, and the other is on a cooldown timer. The vehicle mode ability is also on a timer but varies on which character you are playing.

The example they give is Optimus:
- He has the previously mentioned "Warcry" ability which buffs him and his group. This ability counts as his consumable ability.
- He also has "Dash" which counts for his CD ability.
- And finally, in vehicle mode, he has "Ram" - a burst of speed which does heavy damage to any enemy bot he hits.
- In addition to this, you have your normal shooty weapons and melee attacks

Game modes:
- 5 vs 5 or 10 man free-for-all
-- Deathmatch
-- Team Deathmatch
-- Power Struggle (aka 'Capture the Flag')
-- Code of Power: A mode compromised of 2 and a half minute rounds where teams vie for a giant melee weapon.
-- High Moon says there will be more multiplayer modes than this

The official website of the War For Cybertron video game has been updated. The character page now has two additional Transformers, one Autobot and one Decepticon. They are Air Raid and Breakdown. Air Raid takes after his Generation One self, and has a similar color scheme. Breakdown also takes after his Generation One self, however his alternate mode is no longer a sleek Lamborghini, instead a vicious racer similar to Animated Lockdown.

June 22nd. It's two days before Botcon, and most importantly it's the day of reckoning for Transformers gamers! War For Cybertron is set for release on five consoles, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and for the PC. GameSpot provided a bountiful amount of news concerning War For Cybertron, and they come through with the release date as well. You can check out the entire article here.

Transformers: War for Cybertron is ready to roll out June 22. Activision revealed the release date for its first original game based on the morphing robot series this week in a trailer offering a glimpse at the game's multiplayer modes.

While Activision has produced a number of Transformers games since it first acquired the license four years ago, those titles were directly based on the animated series or Michael Bay's big-budget feature films. War for Cybertron takes a different tack, portraying an event often referenced but rarely depicted in the brand's various treatments: the Autobot-Decepticon civil war on the robots' home planet.

Set for launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, DS, and PC, War for Cybertron will feature two story arcs, one with the heroic Autobots trying to save the planet, the other with the Decepticons in destructive pursuit of power. In addition to single-player action, the game features online co-op play, as well as head-to-head multiplayer modes. A Wii version of the game is also planned, but carries the title Transformers: Cybertron Adventures..........

It's positive feedback if you will. A new year means a new toy line, which yields more Transformers toys, and ultimately, a new incarnation of the face of the franchise - Optimus Prime. Generations, or Classics 3.0, will be making it's start this year, and it is headlined by the toys for the War For Cybertron video game. Peaugh has gotten a hold of the figure and has subsequently posted a review. This figure is in the Deluxe class, and you can check the review embed below, or via Youtube.
