More Information on Transformers: Exodus: Official History of the War For Cybertron

We recently reported that the new Transformers video game, War For Cybertron, would be getting it's own Hardcover book - Transformers: Exodus. The product page for said book has now been updated, and we've got more information about it's content. Check it out below!

For twenty-five years the colossal battle between Megatron and Optimus Prime has captivated Transformers fans around the world. Yet the full story of the conflict between the two most famous Transformers—everything that happened before Optimus and Megatron arrived on planet Earth—has always been a mystery . . . until now. Here, for the first time told in its entirety, is the thrilling saga of Optimus and Megatron before they were enemies, before they even knew each other.

“Freedom is every Cybertronian’s right!” After Megatron utters these immortal words, the caste-bound planet of Cybertron is rocked to its foundations. Megatron, an undefeated gladiator thug, gives voice to the unspoken longings of the oppressed masses—and opens the mind of an insignificant data clerk to possibilities previously unthinkable.
Long before becoming the honorable Optimus Prime, Orion Pax is a mere office underling, an unlikely candidate to answer an outlaw’s call to revolution. But Orion is determined to meet this defiant enemy of all that Cybertron stands for, no matter what he has to do, or how many laws he has to break.

What happens between Orion Pax and Megatron forever changes the destiny of all Transformers. This gripping, action-packed novel reveals all the loyalties and treacheries, trust and betrayals, deadly violence and shining ideals, as well as the pivotal roles played by other characters, including Starscream, Sentinel Prime, Omega Supreme, and one of the thirteen original Primes, the last link to Cybertron’s glorious Golden Age.

Discover how meek disciple Orion Pax becomes the fearless leader Optimus Prime; follow the tantalizing clues about the lost Matrix of Leadership and the lore surrounding it; find out why the two allies fighting a corrupt regime suddenly turn on each other, and what triggers their epic war. Transformers: Exodus provides everything fans ever wanted to know about one of the fiercest rivalries of all time.

...to those of us who never read The War Within or State Games. Of course, TWW was cut short before it could reconcile Quintessons with the Marvel-centric stuff, and the mention of Sentinel Prime and Orion Pax makes me optimistic that the writers at least did all their homework, so I'll probably read this long before I play the game (since I don't have an up to date system)

Maybe, if I like the game.
I do like how the Decepticons at least started from greater shades of grey than just a desire to conquer.

Having read all of the War Within Comics as well as the Megatron: Origins series,(not to mention all the other versions of origin plots since the TF's first came out in '84) it may be rather difficult to sit yet another variation on the whole theme. I am, however, willing to give it a shot just to see how much homework the author(s) have done. It does sound like they have borrowed at least some from the Megatron: Origins story so this could be worth it. It's worth checking out for those of us who still enjoy print/paper.
