We've received some interesting news from Habro regarding gaming and media convention Pax Prime and their involvement with Harmonix Music Systems - in order to create mobile game DropMix! They'll be offering an exclusive Transformers theme playing card at the event to be used for the game (due for release this fall), and you can check out the artwork below! Let us know what you think of this new music/game venture in the Energon Pub, too.

Have you heard about the hot new music-mixing game DropMix?

Dropping into stores and online this fall, DropMix is a dynamic and fast-paced music-mixing game that Hasbro developed in collaboration with legendary and award-winning video game developer Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. (creators of Rock Band and Guitar Hero). The game is a competitive experience that blends physical and digital play to give players a fresh way to combine their favorite songs and discover new ones by playing cards on a game board connected to a mobile app.

At PAX Prime this year, we’ll be offering con-goers with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to pick up an exclusive DropMix ‘Transformers Theme Song’ song card that will allow DropMix players to “roll out” new and interesting music mixes featuring the classic fan-favorite theme song.

New Characters
Two formidable combatants; Snarl and Hun-gurrr join Transformers: Earth Wars this weekend!

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Mission Accomplished


Hun-Gurrr is a creature of appetites. One he fulfils 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.


 

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Mission Accomplished

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 andbeing a Dinobot provides everything his heart desires.

Fire Frenzy - Attack with fierce strength hitting multiple targets in a line, setting enemy buildings on fire and dealing damage. This mode lasts 15 seconds

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Mission Accomplished

Some of the issues we've been investigating:
    We've had further reports regarding squads having 2 of the same bots in them.
      This is being investigated further and we hope to have a resolution in an upcoming build.
       
  • Reports are still coming in regarding bots attack speed when they are engaged in combat with Combiners and/or Laser Optimus Prime.
      We continue to investigate this and a fix will be incoming in an upcoming content push.
  • We've received some reports regarding players not receiving their top reward in events.
      Please note: You must start AND finish your current Battle within the event time in order for it to count towards your score. If you finish after the event has expired you will not get the Battle points.


These are just a few examples of the reports that we've received from you, and we continue to work hard to improve your experience with the game every day.

 Bah-weep-graaaaagnah wheep nini bong!

Battle for Survival! 

Snarl and Hun-gurrr continue their mission on Quintessa.

With the danger passed their temporary truce fails. Their missions resume and Death seems inevitable, but who will be the first to fall?

After narrowly avoiding a painful dismemberment and death, the odd duo appreciates each other a bit more. But orders are orders and they both must face their next goal: mission accomplishment at any cost!

Who are the Quintessons?

Here's a great description from the Transformers Wiki to get you up to speed:

The Quintessons are a bizarre and ancient race, whose dark history and shadowy machinations are bound up with the history of the Transformers, with connections to both Primus and Unicron. They are known galaxy-wide as traders, entrepreneurs and businessmen, but their dealings are very rarely on the level, often laced with intrigue and betrayals.

They prefer subtle manipulation, scheming, and advanced technology over brute force, but if those don't work, they can fall back on the legion of deadly Sharkticons and Allicons at their command and a fleet of battle-ready spaceships as well. However, the Quintessons themselves have zero fighting abilities and are absolute cowards if they have nothing to hide behind. For example, they are seen to be powerless against a Sharkticon revolt.

Under Investigation

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Dark Deeds

Here are some of the issues reported that we've been investigating:
    Reports are coming in regarding bots having a strange 'snap' transformation animation:
      We're looking into this one, and improvements will be coming in an upcoming build.
       
  • Various reports that squads are getting mixed up with other bots or are getting wiped.
      This issue is currently being investigated, and we'll have an update soon.
  • We've had reports that Optimus Prime and Megatron's Special Ability is not working as intended.
      We're currently investigating this and would kindly ask you to let us know if you're experiencing this yourself.

Seibertron.com was invited to visit the Kabam Games studio in Vancouver, Canada. They currently make both Marvel: Contest of Champions and the award winning Transformers: Forged to Fight. Of course, we went to learn more about the Transformers game and I have tons of tidbits for you about the process and design behind the characters, which is what fascinated me most. We will have more content for you coming, such as interviews with the creators, writers and Hasbro packaging artist Marcelo Matere, who is now a full time employee on Transformers: Forged to Fight (but don't worry IDW fans, he still has time for variant covers).

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

The one thing that I really got from this is that these developers are huge fans of the franchise. There is a big (not licensed) Optimus Prime Statue at the studio entrance. It used to make sounds but that drove the receptionist crazy, so now he only lights up.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

Here is what I learnt while on the tour and speaking to the creators and designers:

The model used for Drift in the game (seen in trailers and cutscenes) is based on his Age of Extinction look rather than his Last Knight look because the more reference to movement available the better, and the only media they have access to for The Last Knight right now is trailers (which Drift doesn't appear in). Hasbro does send them reference material if needed and the reference Hasbro sent to them for Drift was shots of the Prime 1 Studios statue.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

The Sharkticon design was in house and not based on any previous design. They needed a grunt type character for the story and while the Sharkticons fit the bill narratively, their G1 designs, which is echoed in their Generations toy, didn’t fit with the overall aesthetic of the game. So they created their own “Generations Sharkticon” which would be more of an update, “classics” style, like many figures were before the recent turn of the Generations toys being much closer to their G1 counterparts.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

From a writing perspective, Cuz Parry, the writer of this game (and the writer of the entire Skate series), finds this similar to writing a comic book since it doesn’t end. You just build on the story and create new stories with this same or evolving roster. There is a beginning and then a middle, middle, middle, middle…

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

The only licensing in the game is with Hasbro for their characters. While the alt-modes look very close to their movie alt-modes, none of the vehicles are licensed. All the designers have to do to bypass copyright is change the angle of the headlights and the shape of the grill. Those happen to be the distinguishing features trademarked on a car’s look.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

As you all know I am fond of lists, and here are two tidbits regarding lists and Transfomers:
1. Hasbro sent a list to the team of specific characters they would be fine with them using. And that list included Trenchmouth.
2. Hasbro also has a list of 7 pillar Transformers characters that they try to keep visible in their marketing and licensing (like DC’s three marketing pillars being Superman, Batman and the Joker). While they didn’t remember the specifics, they said it was the obvious G1 ones like Megatron, Optimus, Bumblebee and Starscream, but they did remember being surprised by the inclusion of Hound.

Transformers Revenge of the Fallen Trenchmouth Gallery

The hardest move to design ever was the box move for Mirage. It is not the design that was hard (it's just a box), it was the timing. The box must first appear fully around Mirage for him to then disappear and it must then reappear fully and fade away for Mirage to reappear. That’s a lot of animation to handle and a long time for the game to stop and for the opponent to either move away or no longer be in control. Plus, you are giving someone the ability to no longer be seen, which might be too big of an advantage in a fast paced game like this. So there too, it’s about the timing. How long can the player be truly invisible? Cuz, the writer, jokingly said that if the box didn’t work they could just have his special be that he parachutes down.



Most G1 designs in the game are based on Hasbro designed toys. Lead character developer, Adam Cooper said that sadly, Ratchet does not have any good Hasbro designed toys out there and thus his design is instead a hybrid of the Takara Masterpiece and the DeNA design from Transformers: Legends.

These are all the tidbits I have for now. More will come when we are at the discretion to share and in upcoming interviews. And about the city itself, Vancouver, if there is one thing I wasn't prepared for, it's for how sarcastic it was.

Transformers News: Seibertron.com Visits Kabam Studios: Forged to Fight Design, Process, Trivia and More

Joking aside, it was an amazing trip and Seibertron.com would like to thank Hasbro, Kabam Studio and their partners at Rogers & Cowan for organizing this exciting event.

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.

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.

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.

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