Despite his plodding, lumbering gait and bulldozer-like approach to anything in his way, Slog is a gentle and even shy 'bot at heart. But conscious of his bellicose fellow Dinobots, and wary of their scorn, he keeps his sensitive side hidden.

Slog's seismic footfalls have been known to cause inadvertent landslides, which sometimes bury Slog and anyone nearby, making others dismiss him as clumsy and accident prone.

Of all the dictators in the Decepticon ranks (and there are a few!) Straxus is among the worst. 

A brutal powerhouse, his word is law, and Straxus will go to any lengths to enforce his policies. Unfortunately, the law according to Straxus can change on a whim, and if you do run afoul of him, don't bother appealing for mercy - he has none. And the sentence is always a short, sharp blow from his battle axe.

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

Transformers: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update As New Playable Bots Arrive to Game, Including Optimus Primal and Megatron T-Rex

Real-time combat strategy mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars rolled out its Beast Wars update earlier this month featuring a series of new characters and events, and today marks the official arrival of Optimus Primal and Megatron T-Rex as playable characters. The Beast Wars story centers around Grimlock, who decides to bring Transformers back from the future. Grimlock gets it wrong and brings characters from the past -- Beast Wars characters! Players who are HQ Level 4 and up can unlock this story through weekly events, and by leveling up their characters.



Transformers: Earth Wars is published by Backflip Studios (DragonVale, Ninjump, Paper Toss) and developed by Space Ape Games (Rival Kingdoms, Samurai Siege). The app brings the excitement of the battle between Autobots and Decepticons to mobile devices with fast-paced gameplay and beautiful 3D animation, allowing the characters to attack, battle, and transform right before a player’s eyes. Using authentic storytellers and voice actors from the original franchise, Transformers: Earth Wars enables players to interact with other Transformers fans, as well as millions of people around the world who enjoy real-time combat strategy games.

Transformers: Earth Wars is free and available to download today for iOS and Android mobile devices. The new Beast Wars update is accessible to players who have hit HQ Level 4 and above. For more information, visit TransformersEarthWars.com.



Dinobot Grimlock

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

A rampaging force of nature, Grimlock is the most feared and powerful of the Dinobots, as irascible and savage as the T-Rex his beast mode is modelled on. Combat is in Grimlock's spark, and periods in between battles are simply periods of great frustration and seething resentment. Any display of weakness is worthy only of contempt in Grimlock's optics, but he's not as dumb as he likes people to think, and his courage on the battlefield is the stuff of legend.


Dinobot Slug

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

Considering he's one of the good 'bots, Slug is as nasty and mean-spirited as they come, and resents everyone from Optimus Prime down. The actual process it takes to build up a fiery (3,000 degrees centigrade plus) blast and reduce an enemy to molten slag is hardly energy-efficient, but he doesn't care. It's firepower well spent in his book. As he often says, "I have no need for friends, even less for enemies."


Dinobot Slog

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

Despite his plodding, lumbering gait and bulldozer-like approach to anything in his way, Slog is a gentle and even shy 'bot at heart. But conscious of his bellicose fellow Dinobots, and wary of their scorn, he keeps his sensitive side hidden. Slog's seismic footfalls have been known to cause inadvertent landslides, which sometimes bury Slog and anyone nearby, making others dismiss him as clumsy and accident prone.


Dinobot Snarl

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

Surly and uncommunicative, a loner by nature, Snarl is about as far from a team player as you can get. But in a group comprised of misfits and malcontents, he somehow fits right in. And though he follows orders (grudgingly), what keeps him in line is the promise of mortal combat — and lashings of it. Only the thrill of battle can truly elevate Snarl's spirits and being a Dinobot provides everything his heart desires.


Dinobot Snarl

Transformers News: Earth Wars Unleashes Prehistoric Power in New Beast Wars Saga Update

In army lingo, Snarl is a grunt. Not just because he's infantry, specializing in desert warfare, obediently if grudgingly following the orders of his commanding officer, but because he's a 'bot of few words and fewer opinions, and the most you can get out of him is the odd grunt. A loner by nature, uncommunicative and surly, Snarl only comes to life in the heat of battle, alongside his fellow Dinobots."

The video game show PAX East is on right now and Kabam has the Transformers Forged to Fight mobile game available to test at the show. They released a brand new trailer showing the initial 25 character lineup. You will see how it is many generations coming together, like Beast Wars, G1 and even the live action films. Most take cues from their toys with Optimus Prime in his Combiner Wars body and Bludgeon looking just like his toy from the Revenge of the Fallen line.
The trailer also has actual gameplay and explains the game and how it's not just a fighting game but has other elements as well. Also, the game's facebook page sports the half autobot half decepticon symbol as it's main logo so now we know that logo is for the game.

Enjoy the trailer and let us know what you think!

New Bots Preview

In an effort to increase VIP visibility into the processes of our development team, we would like to give you a sneak peak of two upcoming characters we're excited to be bringing to Transformers: Earth Wars. These characters are currently being created and designed by the art team, so this is the first time that they are being shown to players.  

KUP 


Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game
"Kup has been there, done that, got the T-shirt. There's almost nothing this veteran warhorse hasn't seen or experienced. Gruff and grizzled, Kup is forever waxing nostalgic about this battle or that narrow escape. Even if only half of his stories are true, it's still a packed life he's lived.  One thing's for sure - he's a born survivor."

Kup is an iconic character, and there have been a number of Kup toys released over the years. However, the one form that resonated with us the most was the classic G1 design from the 1986 animated movie. Who can forget Kup’s war stories of petro rabbits and other galactic adventures? We used the movie reference as a basis for the moodboards we compiled to get a feel for the character.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


We originally made Kup’s legs rounded to match his appearance in the movie, but unfortunately this made him look awkward in vehicle mode, so we switched to a classic design.
We pay close attention to the polygon count when modelling a character. If we exceed a particular number of polygons we may run into performance issues when the character is added to the game. Using lots of curves and rounded edges quickly increases the polygon count.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


When texturing characters, we often exaggerate particular colours and features. Given the small scale at which bots are shown during battle, this helps keep them distinctive and readable. In this example, we’ve accentuated the yellow details on Kup’s head and legs.

  HUN-GURRR

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game

"Hun-Gurrr is a creature of appetites. One he fulfills by stuffing his twin mouths with monstrous amounts of energy, raw materials, and fallen Autobots. The other - his love of battle - he sates through wanton destruction and mayhem.As leader of the Terrorcons, he makes an adept military commander, though he tends to issue orders with a full mouth, making him difficult to understand." Though Hun-Gurrr is a lesser known Transformers character and there have been fewer toys based on him, he certainly has a distinct and impressive countenance.
 

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game


With Hun-Gurrr's bot form, it was important to keep the colour distribution close to the original cartoon and toy design so that that he was easily recognizable. When it came to the Alt form, we felt that there were some areas in the design that we could push to heighten his ferocious appearance. The two heads were enlarged, giving us more room for lots of pointy teeth. The spikes down the neck and spine were accentuated to give sharper impact to his silhouette. To finish his look we gave him some claws reminiscent of a dragon.

Transformers News: Re: Transformers: Earth Wars Real Time Strategy Combat Mobile App Game

Next week, we’ll take a more detailed look at how we go about animating these characters and creating their transformation sequences.

Fellow Seibertronian Mindmaster has given us a heads up on a new Transformers mobile game from Kabam Inc called Transformers: Generations Collide. It is a fighting game, similar to the Marvel theme one on mobile, but featuring Transformers. New characters are added every week and it seems they are blending different continuities together with the only image from the game being a G1 styled Optimus against Revenge of the Fallen Megatron. This would explain the name "Generations Collide". You can read all the details below and get the game here.
