One of the three new Transformers toy lines is Generations, and it is headlined by the figures for the War For Cybertron Video Game. Whenever we happen to get a new Transformers brand, it also means we usually get a new incarnation of the face of the franchise. War For Cybertron Deluxe Optimus Prime looks much like any of his predecessors in previous Transformers eras. He comes with a blaster, and transformers into a futuristic tank/truck, similar to War Within Optimus Prime. TFClub has acquired the figure, and has taken several pictures of the Autobot Leader. There's shots of Optimus in both robot and alternate mode, as well as comparisons to WW Optimus Prime. Since Optimus Prime also wields an Axe, there's also shots of him wielded Animated Prime's weapon. Check out the gallery below!

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
