While I do believe DLC can be good if, say the game is complete and months after it's release, developers offer additional content that was created after the games release. But DLC on day one? That's just absurd... also, 4 skins for $10?! no actual game content?

No, I'm not surprised, and because I'm a hardcore TF fan I may even get it at some point. Activision wins. I just wanted to vent my disapproval...

Magnus looks awesome but i wouldnt pay $10 for a few extra characters in multiplayer, if they were all playable in single player and online then maybe or even if it also gave you a few extra maps but just a few characters i think not.

And once again we PS3 users get the shaft, xbox gets avatar crap but we get nothing. How about stuff for PS Home or some avatars? Oh well guess we'll just keep our money or give it to your rival companies.

I can't deal with how much I want these. Some of the sickest designs ever. Also, Perceptor's a titan? REVENGE OF THE NERDS! Also, a tank that's a sniper amuses me.

I'm excited to see that some of the WFC DS Exclusive characters are being moved over to the Console; Ultra Magnus, and Drag Strip.

Now let's see some Coneheads and the rest of the Stunticons!

Magnus looks a little different from his WFC design, but still cool. Guess he upgraded too.

Though, it is kinda too bad that his toy is just another Optimus remold when we have these cool designs that a toy could have been made from.


Perceptor's pretty beefy looking. And with that altmode, he's one geek you don't want to mess with. He will break you, and then blast you... for SCIENCE! :P


Loving Jackie's look! He's totally a pre-Earth version of Prime Jackie (as that's the version of Wheeljack this design most resembles).


Blast Off is... as he should be.

Still waiting on Dinobot DLC now >:oP

Hasbro to Activision: Yes. You don't even really need to change their parts, they buy two of the same thing just because they have different colors. We do it all the time. Trust us.

I approve of this DLC

Remember, games nowadays are a huge investment. And after it's finished you either wait 2 years for a sequel or don't do anything.

Back in the pc days we got expansions. But that wasn't optional for consoles somehow.

And everytime a sequel is made people expect better graphics, newer engine. And a totally new game.

DLC is a great way to keep the game alive after it's release, and they studio can make some more money and keep making games.

Okay, announcing DLC at the day of release is a bit fast, I agree with that. Still I'm going to get all the DLC they throw at me cuz I love the Designs/Game/Transformers + I'll have to wait another year or more for a sequel to Dark Souls! :D :D :D :D :D

Do these characters show up in the character creation area whether you've bought them or not? I went into this section last night after playing the SP for a while and saw all of these. I didn't buy this DLC. I entered the G1 Retro Pack code for Optimus and the guns. Are these characters included in that, or do they show up without being playable? I noticed some things were locked to be bought with in game points, but I didn't pay attention to these.

Thanks to a post on the official Transformers Game facebook page by Scott Calandra we get a look at a couple of the upcoming Transformers: Fall of Cybertron DLC packs.

Available on September 11th: Dinobot Destruction Pack, which features Grimlock, Swoop, Slug, and Snarl

Available on September 25th: Massive Fury Pack, which features the Retro Pack with G1 Optimus Prime plus the Insecticons, Hound, G2 Bruticus, possibly more

Awesome. Only 3 weeks for the Dinobots. This. Will. Be. Epic. Looks like we get Hound on the 25th of next month in that last pack. I wondered when with him being in the trailer for the retro pack.

So... I went out of my way to Pre-Order FoC from Gamestop to get G1 Optimus and the bonus weapons... But now there's a DLC pack coming out containing him, and I have to buy him again if I want to get the Insecticons?

Is this correct?

yup, they pretty much flipped off everybody that preordered the game for the incentive.

they couldve waited a few months. Poor show

on the plus side, now i dont feel so bad picking it up friday with no incentives since i'll buy them in few weeks when i really hit multiplayer

Too bad about the pre-order incentives, thankfully I'm not that interested in the Insecticons. But the Dinobots WILL be mine! YES! (I wonder why no Sludge though? Too big?)

Snarl was my first TF and is still one of my favorites because of it. VERY excited to get to play him in the game, even as "just" a multiplayer skin...

Guys, it is an industry standard that preorder bonuses get released about a month or 2 after launch. The incentive is you get the stuff first, not that you are the only ones that ever gets it at all.

There are only 4 multiplayer classes. Also, playing through the game will make you understand.

If that is how you want to see it. The better way to look at it is that the preorder bonuses are free with the purchase of the Insecticons and Hound. If you have the preorder bonuses already, you aren't really getting them again, you are just getting the other stuff.

A lot of companies do that. It's not new. Crummy, but not new. The first game had 3 retailer exclusive multiplayer skins, too. People were paying upwards of $60, according to completed auctions on eBay, for each one. About a month later they were included in a character/map pack with those 3, 2 or 3 more characters, and 4 maps for only $10. I thought it was awesome they released the other characters. I don't mind that the one I already had was included as it was a tough choice between Jazz and Shockwave. I feel bad for the chumps on eBay that paid those ridiculous prices, but if you can't wait then you can't wait.

I'm sure glad I get a chance to get the G2 Bruticus along with 3 insecticons and Hound. You still get 4 unique characters just like you do with the Dinobots DLC. Most likely, they'll be the same price, too.

I figured it would be made available later, I just assumed it would be available G2 Bruticus and no one else. Which would not have been a loss for me.

Also, Sharpshot = Hound?

I mean, I'm glad to be getting Hound, but why is he being called Sharpshot?

In any case, I was using the Slingshock weapon today, and so I'm glad to have that already. That's one thing I'm sure of.

I don't know why people are upset that its out one the first day, or that the G1 retro pack is available WITH the insecticons. It was a pre-order bonus, not an exclusive. It just so happens that this pre-order bonus was exclusive to EB/Gamestop just like G2 Bruticus was an Amazon exclusive.

My only gripe are the Magnus & Blastoff colors and that you can't play as sludge in the DLC.

I would gladly pay for more G1 skins!

I still want to see Arcee and Slipstream added back in. They said they took them out because of the customization. Those character's parts wouldn't work on other bots being male vs female bodytypes. I say screw it. Just make them available as full sets so people can still play as them.

I nominate Arcee, Slipstream, and Sludge to come with the first map pack DLC.

Not calling for them now, as we already have and are gettig so much, but maybe we can get some Wreckers characters in the third installment of the series.

so instead of selling the retro pack on its own they include it in a DLC pack with other stuff effectively screwing over the people who preordered, and here i thought HMS was one of the good companies. And i like the lack of campaign DLC, if your going to get me to spend $10 on DLC it better add alot more than just a few characters for online. For $10 i can go and buy a full fledged game thatll actually have some value to it.

Yeah im a little pissed with this. In the UK you can get a basic copy of the game for £35. If you want the G1 Pre-Order bundle its £45.

If you dont bother with the pre-order its actually cheaper to just wait and get the DLC and you get all the extras too instead of buying them again.

HighMoon, one of the GOOD companies? Now remind me, was this before or after they basically gave their consumer base the middle finger. And stopped responding to peoples pleas to fix the untold number of glitches and issues with multiplayer in WFC? Give it a couple months, I'm hoping more than 6 this time and lets see if they suddenly drop off the face of the earth. As for the skins, unless multiplayer really picks up on PC, and I get the feeling it won't, not even gonna waste my money on this.

They are owned by Activision. They were expected to stop working on it when WFC stopped getting much traffic.

Unless they add maps to escalation for these characters, don't count on it. Maps are limited to 4 characters. It is unfortunate.

What sucks is you just can't buy a dlc pack to get them all you have to buy each head each chest each leg. It's so stupid and they are 80 MSP each why couldn't they just do one whole figure for 250 or something. No you have to buy 20 seperate dlc slots. And can someone tell me how this all ties in with prime and generation 1 because the Dino bots were made on earth I thought. I'm pretty sure that's what happened in the g1 series or does hasbro have some crazy twist why the Dino bots are on cybertron. And I don't have anything against the story of the game I think it's great I just wanna know how this came to be and if anyone actually knows the answer.

I don't see why they wouldn't be playable in escalation. MP is MP. They most likely won't be playable in SP, though. The campaign is more single character specific for each level.

Were the DLC packs from WFC not playable in both Escalation and TDM/Conquest? That would answer the question.

I believe it's one of the main plot points of the story. It should be answered in the game or the numerous interviews with Matt Teiger. I'm only on Lvl 3 of the game, but I've heard several interviews why there are robot, space dinosaurs on Cybertron.

Ya I'm on level 5 I'm just about to met up with the Dino bots. I absolutely love this game once you start to play with other characters it gets even better. Power up the path maker I think it's called the first gun you get and the scrap maker. I like that this one is a little more challenging on hard than the first one

In G1 the Dinobots were created on Earth by Wheeljack/Ratchet/Sparkplug. But in many (all?) of the comics there is a different story - especially in the more recent IDW stuff. My guess (I haven't played yet, stupid work) is that the game story takes a similar approach. I read some stuff a while back to support this, but it is "spoilery" so I won't mention it.
