Target Locked!

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Target Locked!


Lockdown has tirelessly tracked Perceptor’s every move, sticking to his heels like a bad case of cyber-ticks! With the tempting reward in his sights, the Decepticon bounty hunter will not rest until Perceptor is hanging on his trophy wall.   Perceptor’s options are to run until the last of his Energon is depleted, hide and hope that Optimus can recall him in time, or stand and fight.  As an Autobot, there is only one logical choice - to stand and fight!

Battle on this weekend’s event leaderboard for a chance at a guaranteed 2, 3, or 4-StarPerceptor or Lockdown!

New Characters

At long last, the Space Bridge has locked onto Perceptor and Lockdown and their transfer is imminent!


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Target Locked!
Perceptor (Special)
Extremely intelligent, with a data-storage capacity second to none, Perceptor's thirst for knowledge is unquenchable, and it's pure science - not battle - that lights his circuits. Perceptor is the go-to 'bot when it comes to adapting to Earth combat. Although good-natured and affable, Perceptor doesn't really play well with others.


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Target Locked!
Defense Hack
Hack a defense making it attack other defenses with double attack speed but 75% damage.
Ability cost: 4

 


Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Target Locked!
Lockdown (Special)Though a Decepticon by allegiance, Lockdown's three priorities are me, myself and I. All business, he runs a very tight ship, and once locked on his target his grapple hook never deviates or waivers until the job is done.
It's only ever personal if someone else makes it so.

Directly from the Javits Convention Center showroom floor at New York Toy Fair 2017, site owner Seibertron has posted a gallery of an extremely limited premium edition set of Transformers Monopoly. Winning Solutions, a premium games company that has collaborated with Hasbro in the past, is working with the Transformers brand team to produce a high-end, G1-themed edition of one of America's oldest board games. Previous premium games from Winning Solutions include popular games such as Monopoly, Clue and Scrabble.

At first glance, the set appears to be framed artwork - suitable for hanging thanks to a friction locking system - featuring a laser etched aluminum 'frame' with classic robotic detailing, and The Transformers: The Movie inspired art by Marcelo Matere. The frame unfolds to become players' money and property trays, revealing a sleek Monopoly board with touches designed to entice fans' sensibilities:

  • Traditional Monopoly properties represented by classic Transformers characters
  • Houses & Hotels represented by teal & pink Energon cubes, respectively
  • Custom money and Chance/Community Chest cards
  • Diecast player tokens, including: Megatron (Gun mode), Soundwave (Walkman mode), Starscream (Vehicle mode), Hot Rod (Vehicle mode), Grimlock (Dinosaur mode), Optimus Prime (vehicle mode), Matrix of Leadership, and Unicron (planet mode).

While many details are as of yet unconfirmed and subject to change, Winning Solutions projects an early summer 2017 release date, with a prospective run of 500 sets and suggested retail price of $499. Additionally, each set will likely be hand-numbered and possibly signed by artist Marcelo Matere.

What do you think of this set? Up your alley, not your cup of tea? Please let us know your thoughts in the forums below!

New Bots Preview - Kup & Hun-Gurrr Gameplay Design

In previous weeks, we’ve taken a look at art concepts for Kup & Hun-Gurrr as well as their modeling and animation pipelines. This week, we’ll be diving deep into gameplay territory.Kup and Hun-Gurrr are both members of the Special class, yet their in-game stats and abilities differ widely. Upon release, they will be paired to an as of yet unannouncedAutobot and Decepticon.

Kup

Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event

Design Goals & RoleKup is a hugely experienced fighter and a key member of the elite Wreckers unit. Therefore, we wanted to give him respectable damage and enough health to stand his ground on the battlefield. He fits a role of a deep strike and assault unit, a damage dealer that can survive in the middle of enemy base, tackle important targets and escape when needed. Gameplay StatsKup’s base stats of put him close to Windblade. His attack range is relatively small, but he can dish out almost as much damage as gunners. Kup’s health pool (while not as high as a regular ‘warrior class’ bot) is twice the health of most air units. Moreover, his movement speed of 2.3 (compared to 1.8 for gunners and 2 for air) allows him to move between targets with relative ease. Attacks & WeaponryAs his primary attack against buildings and bots, Kup uses dual submachine guns. Their rapid rate of fire means Kup can deal highly consistent DPS (damage per second) and can finish off targets in a quick and efficient manner. But Kup has more tricks up his sleeve... Every 10 seconds, he will use a long range cluster grenade attack. These grenades significantly increase his DPS, can be thrown over walls and deal damage across a respectable area of effect.
Special Ability


Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event
Orbital bounce
Teleport to a target location and gain 70% damage reductionand immunity to slows and stuns for 5 (lvl 1) - 8.4 (lvl 10) seconds.

Orbital Bounce is what makes Kup truly unique and will let highly skilled players (with their impeccable timing and positioning) turn a good bot into the stuff of Cybertronian legends.

This teleportation skill was voted by the community as one of their favourites and we’ve since improved it by adding a shielding component to ensure that once Kup dives deep into the heart of an enemy base, he’ll get the protection he needs to escape safely.


Hun-Gurrr

Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event

Design Goals & RoleLeader of vicious Terrorcons and a cunning tactician, Hun-Gurrr both looks and fights like no other ‘con! His unique ‘mode based’ special ability hugely increases his damage potential and allows him to attack multiple buildings at once. Used in conjunction with gunners and medium/close range fighters like Nemesis Prime or Galvatron, Hun-Gurrr can cut through enemy lines with ease. Gameplay StatsStat wise, Hun-Gurrr is comparable to the leader of Predacons - Razorclaw. He has an impressive movement speed of 3.4 (0.2 faster than Razorclaw and twice as fast as warrior class ‘cons, who usually move at 1.7). Damage of our Terrorcon is 10% lower than Razorclaw’s, but his health is 10% higher! Attacks & WeaponryIn his regular mode, Hun-Gurrr has a series of vicious melee attacks as well as a medium-range fire breathing move similar to the one of Grimlock.
Special Ability


Transformers News: Earth Wars 'Working the Sharks Out' Event
Fire Frenzy
Attack with fierce strength hitting multiple targets in a line, setting enemy buildings on fire and dealing up to 300% (lvl 1) - 425% (lvl 10) of damage. This mode lasts 15 seconds.

Fire Frenzy is what turns a cool looking ‘con into the truly terrifying harbinger of destruction. Until now, this type of “mode based” ability has only been used on the new combiners (Frantic/Righteous Rage abilities of Optimus Maximus and Bruticus). Once activated, Hun-Gurrr engages the chosen target and stays in this special mode for 15 seconds, he’s able to move and retarget as needed.

Moreover, his attacks can hit multiple targets in a long line behind the target, setting them on fire and dealing greatly increased damage. With good support and positioning, Hun-Gurrr can easily carve huge holes in even the strongest defense lines.

 

New Bots Preview - Dev Q&A Answers

You asked and we answered! Check out the responses from Chris (Product Owner) and Adam (Game Designer) to your questions in our latest developer Q&A.

Q) How do you determine relative sizes between bots and their alt form to other bots? / How do you decide a size of bots? Do you have any reference material you need to stick to when deciding a size of bots?
A) There are two different scales used in the game; one for the Team screen and another scale that is used in battle. For in-game clarity, we try to make bots fit within the boundaries set for their respective classes. Occasionally we’ll tweak scales on a per bot basis but there’s only so far we can go in terms of scale before things either become hard to read or start obstructing the in-game interface or competing with buildings. In game size also affects their physical radius and path finding. As in the comics and cartoons, we take some liberties but respect the size relations between bots; Bumblebee will always be much smaller than Optimus Prime for example.

Q) How long does the whole development process take to create per character?
A) From start to finish, the process takes around 6 weeks. However, we can create up to 4 characters in parallel over this period of time.

Q) Do you have any reference materials such as actual toys when developing new characters?
A) We draw inspiration from a wide range of sources when we compile a character’s moodboard and are often spoilt for choice. We make use of Transformers The Ark: A Complete Compendium Of Transformers Animation Models, the IDW comics, G1 movie references, the Marvel G1 Universe book and of course the toys themselves! The tfwiki and other fansites are an invaluable online source of knowledge, so props to those guys too!

Q) Does Hasbro review all the new characters before they make it into the game?
A) Absolutely. We work closely with Hasbro at each stage of the character creation process. This ensures we get feedback at each stage of the process from moodboards, through to blockouts and animations. An example of some feedback might be, ‘can you add the Autobot insignia to the character’s chest’ through to guidance on character sizing and the visual look and styling.

Q) Character itself or their ability, which do you guys work on first?
A) The class of the bot is determined by our designer before the artistic process begins, but it rarely affects the visuals and often the process is intertwined. One example of this is when we created Galvatron. In toy form, Galvatron has turned into both a cannon and tank. The design team wanted to make use of his static cannon as an ability to differentiate him from Megatron. Therefore, this feedback was given to the art team early in the process. Similarly, for weapons, the design team will give the art team feedback on which ones should be included with the character.

Q) Will Predaking be added to the game at some point? / Will Victorion be added to the game as a combiner?
A) We love both Predaking & Victorion and would like to add them in the future. However, we’re going to focus on some other innovative characters first that will hopefully bring unique gameplay options to battle.

Q) How much of a priority is getting the rest of the Stunticons out?
A) It’s going to take some time as we’re missing a lot of key Stunticons right now. However, Drag Strip may have a new Stunticon friend joining him very soon…

Q) Is Beast (the Combiner that consists of Grimlock, Slag, Sludge, Snarl and Swoop) in your future plan?
A) That sounds like an awesome combiner!

Q) Any plans to add Triple Changers?
A) Some of our favourite characters are Triple Changers. We’d love to add them, and when we do, we’ll do them justice with multiple abilities for each bot. This means triple changing both in both battle and the team screen.

Q) When can we expect to see the remaining Dinobots? / I am hoping to see the remaining dinobots soon. Can you tell me if you have plans to let them join the game?
A) Dinobots are awesome and we will add them ALL over time. Adam, our designer, is secretly hoping we’ll add Paddles, but we keep vetoing that suggestion! One day we’ll run out of new characters to add, and just have to include Paddles…

Q) I would like to see Metroplex and Trypticon bases incorporated into the game, are there any plans to add them?
A) Due to their size we’d need to find a novel way of using them. Either they’d have to become part of the base, or form a new game mode entirely!

Q) I have been requesting the same bot since I started playing. Are there any plans to add Warpath to the game? He is a G1 Autobot and the first tank to appear in the G1 cartoon. Right now the bots have no tanks when the cons have more than one. It would be great to see him fire from his chest cannon
A) We’re sad to say that he’s not on our plan right now, but we’ve doubled the number of Transformers in the game in just under a year so there’s every chance he could make an appearance in the future.

Misc. Questions
We’ve tried to focus on answering questions directly related to bots this time round, but here are some other responses to frequently asked questions!

Q) Can you release the ability damage numbers for Sunstreaker / Mirage / Pyra / Slug. IE: All the bots where damage is not mentioned. Silverbolt for instance. Even Bumblebee could be re-written. I don't understand why this has not been done already.
A) We only have the functionality expose one parameter per ability. For the aforementioned bots we’ve opted for duration. We aim to either provide a second parameter or possibly change what we display, especially for fire based attacks (the latter should be relatively straightforward).

Q) Do you plan to increase the maximum level for bots in the future?
A) We have no plans to do this at present.

Q) If you use a bot in battle which has reached it's maximum bot level, is the XP distributed to that bot and lost or do the other bots in your squad get the XP?
A) The XP is lost.

Q) When will we see the next Shuttle upgrade for 8 bots?
A) Currently we do not have plans to release another Shuttle upgrade.

Q) Is there a plan to boost current battle boosts as most are very underwhelming at this point?
A) Yes we are going to address this. Stay tuned!

It has been a long time we didnt get new toy reveals through the Robots in Disguise App. It seems it is making up for lost time sinc we finally have our first look at not just 1, or 2, but 3 combiners:
Ultra Bee, Menasor and (hold onto your buts) Galvatronus!

There are also new Combiners/Activators: Soundwave & Torpedo Laserbeak (which we have already seen in toy form) and Optimus Prime & High Test.

We also finally see Dragbreak (which looks pretty much as you would expect), as well as Lunar Force Primestrong and Shocknado, which both appear to be redecos.

Let us know what you think of the designs. Remember that the combiners have been found to be at the 30$-35$ price point so that may explain why they look like simplified transforming toys with no individual robot modes, more along the power rangers zord concept.

Hopefulyl we will get a better look at these this coming saturday at the 2017 New York Toy Fair.

New Bots Preview - Animation

Last week, we peeked behind the scenes at the modelling process for two of our upcoming bots: Kup & Hun-gurrr. This time around we’re going to give you a sneak preview of their animations! We create two sets of transformations for every character in Transformers: Earth Wars. The first is the fast transformation sequence you see during battle. We keep this transformation as snappy as possible to ensure gameplay remains quick and responsive. We use a standard sound effect when this animation plays, and there are two transformation sounds: one for transforming to alt-form and one for transforming back to bot.

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Feeding Frenzy Plus More Kup and Hun-Gurrr

Kup Hero Transformation


Then there is what we call internally the ‘hero’ transformation. This is used in the team screen and is an involved, elaborate animation sequence that is slower and more complex. This is a unique animation for almost every bot in the game. Rather than playing a one-shot transformation sound effect, we map certain points of the animation to a vast array of clicks and clunks. This ensures that the transformation is synchronized perfectly with the audio.
 

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Feeding Frenzy Plus More Kup and Hun-Gurrr

Hun-Gurrr Hero Transformation
There’s an old phrase, ‘two heads are better than one’, but Hun-gurrr gave us a number of problems as a result of his extra head! Whereas Kup shares some of his battle animations with other characters, Hun-gurrr has his own unique set of animations! Just as we think we’ve created every animation we’ll ever need, a Terrorcon arrives to terrorize our art team! The variation between the characters is one of the things that makes Transformers so appealing (and challenging) to us as a development team!

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.

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