Wait, what's going on here? Why is FOC Optimus in a Movieverse game? Or is movieverse Bumblebee in a FOC Sequel?

Where've you been? Rise of the Dark Spark is a crossover game between AOE and FOC.

Not only that but we can probably expect to see the Generations product line littered with lazy repaints and half-assed retools of shelf warmers with one or two obligatory new molds. Basically pick up any peg warming DotM/Prime/Generations figures now and start mixing and matching parts and you'll be ahead of the "new" RotDS product releases and likely get better versions than Hasbro comes out with. That's IF they decide to put any figures out for the game. 8-}

Personally, after FoC I have no desire whatsoever to see the games or the product lines tainted with any kind of "movie" crossover. The Bayverse should be it's own separate entity and NEVER touch the rest of the TF continuity as far as I'm concerned. These idiots trying to align it into the regular continuity should have their asses kicked. It's like trying to promote an incestuous relationship with that creepy relative everyone tries to avoid at family gatherings.

So, wait, is it a FOC game where they turn into the movie characters? Or are they separate universes that are crossing over? It can't be the first one, because the FoC and WfC games tie into the Prime universe, not the movie universe.

still not sold on this, and the pre-order bonuses seem lame so far. im sure the writing will be good but i have the feeling everything else is going to suck, just like FoC & Deadpool. Great stories in those but horrible graphics & uninspired gameplay.

FoC had horrible graphics? If you only play games like Battlefield 4 and Planetside 2 I guess they're terrible, but the graphics were pretty good compared to most games.

It's the latter. The titular "Dark Spark" will act as a portal between universes that lets the playable characters crossover back and forth per the level gameplay.

For more info, I'd suggest backtracking through this thread to see more videos, trailers, images, press releases, etc., as it all seems to be within this thread. :D

Wasn't the Aligned universe meant to be separate from all the other Transformers multiversal streams? I thought they weren't meant to interact with the larger collection of continuities, so Hasbro could come up with a new mythology and not deal with multiversal singularities or Rarified Energon or any of the other McGuffins floating around that allow for these crossovers in the first place.

For 14 hours I could play another game and a half to completion. These days, I really only go for trophies if they aren't a total grind fest. 14 hours for trophies? No thank you.

Well, it's too late, now, since we've already had cases with Aligned Slipstream winding up in Axiom Nexus and BWII Lio Convoy going into the Aligned continuity as Leo Prime.

Though the Aligned continuity remains outside of the mutliverse, travel between the two is still possible (but perhaps a lot harder to do).

Not to mention that the guys who came up with the Aligned continuity's rules that set outside of the mutliverse are no longer with Hasbro, so the new team is free to do what they wish with the previous team's works.

Still, though, with Alpha Trion and Optimus Prime being among the original Thirteen in the Aligned continuity, there's no way on Earth that the Aligned continuity can be a part of the multiverse, so that still keeps it separate.

And, depending on how this game plays out, it's possible that the WFC/FOC parts of the game might not be the actual, main Aligned universe that we've been seeing in the main games, cartoons, comics, and novels, as it could possibly be an alternate universe only based on WFC/FOC, like how "Tales of the Beast Hunters" and Transformers Go! are separate from the main Aligned timeline.

That is all that I've ever hoped for when it comes to WFC/FOC. Let it be cut away from the rest and stand alone.

I'm saying the WFC/FOC parts if this particular game might not even fit with the actual WFC and FOC games. The WFC/FOC parts of this game are said to take place after WFC but before FOC, meaning that the FOC Dinobots can't be in this game in order for it to work. But if they are, then ROTDS's WFC/FOC parts can't fit with the real WFC and FOC games, making ROTDS WFC/FOC parts into a separate WFC/FOC from the real WFC and FOC games.

Sly 2 and The Walking Dead are the only 2 games I have platinumed. And all you have to do in both of those games is just beat it.

Both WFC and FOC felt lacking to me. They could have been much better. The addition of a cover system would have made them more enjoyable. I hate when third person shooters don't have one.

Fellow Seibertron.com member Primeultimus has spotted another video on GameTrailers, concerning the upcoming Activision Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark videogame - and this time, it's not Bumblebee or Optimus Prime. Check out the embedded video below, featuring the Decepticon leader Megatron!

Oy, as has been stated numerous times, this game is a dimnesional crossover between the AOE movie universe and the FOC video game universe. The titular Dark Spark will act as a portal between both universes, allowing the characters to be moved back and forth between both worlds during the gameplay.

Well it at least looks like it's not going to be a repeat of the Dark of the Moon game, and rather, lean more closer to the WFC/FOC games.

I really wish we would have gotten a Voyager (or a Deluxe at least) sized FoC Megatron figure, it would have been so awesome, especially if it came with his sword. RotDS is starting to look pretty decent, hopefully we get a demo.

I guess the only sensible thing to do is to write ROTDS's WFC/FOC parts out of the main Aligned timeline and consider it merely an alternate reality version like how "Tales of the Beast Hunters" is to Prime season 3.

No harm done to the main timeline that way, as it just excommunicates this game and makes it its own individuated entity.

Now if only we could extract the prior two games from the Aligned continuity and create a micro-continuity...

I believe it was part of a Gameinformer article. Course it doesn't say specifically it's riiight after his revival, but it makes sense to me at least considering not much else is confirmed :b

Source?

I read that it takes place before the Ark's launch, but not the part about it taking place right after Megatron's revival.
Well, the source I heard my info from was a report on an article in a Game Informer magazine issue. If the article has further info that clarifies a setting and timeframe that doesn't conflict with the previous games, then we'd have to find some way of getting our hands on that magazine issue.

Seems better than the bonus of Stinger... but I know so little about this game's multiplayer I'm in no rush to preorder it from Gamestop or Amazon.

I wonder how well the servers will hold up when the different transformation animations are running in 16 different models.

I hope Skywarp and Thundercraker are playable in Single Player and not just for multiplayer like a lot of FOC's DLC

is it for all game modes or just online? If its only for online then its one more reason for me not to bother with this game. Remember when pre-order bonuses use to be cool & not just some lame ass DLC that will probably be free in a few months?
