Activision's upcoming (and highly anticipated) Transformers: Fall of Cybertron video game continues to generate a lot of buzz. [a]listdaily.com recently spent some time with High Moon Studios President Peter Della Penna and Marketing Manager Greg Agius to talk about the game and the brand in general. Below is an excerpt.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron hits shelves on August 28th.

[a]list: How did you get a chance to do a game based on an original take on Transformers in the first place?

Peter Della Penna: It was pretty obvious to us and Activision, that our studio capabilities and sensibilities were a great fit for the Transformers license. Also, it was perfect timing for us to develop a Transformers game that was not based on the film property and did not interfere with the movie franchise release schedule. The natural place for us to go was back to our childhood roots in G1 and start telling the story of Transformers before they came to earth.

[a]list: What are ways that you look to bring in fans of the classic cartoon series? Do you try and tap veteran voice actors?

Greg Agius: Authenticity is our biggest strength at High Moon Studios. You walk around the studio and you see G1 fans everywhere. I'd say that bleeds through to the game in every way. The look and the feel all are heavily inspired by G1. But everything is updated so that it feels right and up to date with the look of a modern game. Landing original G1 voices like Peter Cullen to voice Optimus Prime and Gregg Berger to do Grimlock is another key. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron reboots your childhood and makes it cool again!

[a]list: What games do you try to emulate as far as being successful with a classic brand? Do you try and learn something from the recent Batman and Spider-Man games?

Peter Della Penna: Game wise I would say both Batman and Spider-Man are great references. Especially the Batman Arkham series where everything you do in those games drives the player back to the core of what makes Batman so cool. For us, it's about transformation and the variety of awesome characters in the Transformers lore.

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

Image

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
