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.

Transformers News: Forged To Fight Hot Rod Developer Q&A, 360 gif, and video feature

AUTOBOT HOT ROD has joined the fight! Long undercover on Earth with his brother in arms, Bumblebee, Hot Rod is a powerful and agile warrior with a unique Time Bubble Cannon that definitely packs a serious punch! Kabam has provided some exciting high-res assets for us to share with all of you, including a 360-rotating GIF of HOT ROD, and a developer Q&A.



Transformers Forged To Fight HOT ROD Developer Q&A

Hot Rod’s In The House

Hot Rod made quite the splash when he debuted in Transformers: The Last Knight and he’s looking to do the same when he enters the fray in Forged To Fight. Let’s get the scoop on the undercover protector. NOTE: If you haven’t seen the movie yet, there may be some spoilers below so continue at your own risk;)

Nick Warps Hot Rod’s Reality

Cuz: Early on in development, Hasbro shared that Hot Rod was rocking a new "Time Bubble" cannon. Tell us a) were you pumped on this b) how you created the effect and c) how would things be different if it was a "Time Bubble" chainsaw as some fans had predicted?

Nick: I was absolutely pumped about Hot Rod’s "Time Bubble". It’s an effect that really shines on the higher end devices (to witness all of the bells and whistles).

For this effect I needed to communicate that not only the character was in suspended animation, but that reality itself was suspended. I started with a sphere as my bubble shape to encompass the character and then added a warp ripple that distorts theentire game view as it flows along the bubble shape. I then added some lightning that flows along the sphere which also gets distorted by the warp. This helps to break up the sphere shape by giving the appearance of flowing energy waves. I then added some lightning bolts that shoot outside of the sphere to show that the energy can hardly be contained within the time bubble. Lastly there is a soft outer blue glow to enhance the sphere shape and some tiny dust specs on the outer edges. These last two additions help give the sphere a real "space/time" bubble look. I was really happy with the final look.

A time bubble chainsaw could also have been cool! I would have added lots of grinding sparks and Energon sprays for the chainsaw.

Piero Reveals The Secrets of The Rod

Cuz: Tangent time, bear with me. Piero, your name means "clown" in French. And, some have said Hot Rod’s French accent in Last Knight bordered on being clownish. You must have been psyched. Did you try to incorporate clown skills or attributes into Hot Rod’s design? Does he have any rad seltzer bottle or pie in the face skills?

Piero: Nothing clown-ish in Hot Rod’s ability design! He is definitely one of the strongest damage dealers in the game with the help of his Time Bubble Gun. Hot Rod is able to "Decelerate" opponents when hitting with his Ranged Attacks. This supports all the other abilities in his kit.

Ranged -> Dash -> Melee Hitting opponents is his specialty since he gains Critical Rate Buffs when punching opponents. Using a Heavy Attack at the end of a combo is going to have a high chance to inflict a Critical Hit and Stun opponents.

Cuz: In the movie, Hot Rod spends some time speaking with a suspect French accent, perhaps to amuse or confuse his fellow Autobots. Is there any chance we get a sweet confusion or amusement attribute? If not, then how about telling what mod works best with him.

Piero: Hot Rod’s Signature Ability "Acceleration" will allow him to get Power really, really fast. Because of this increased Power Rate, he will be extremely effective on modules that provide even extra Power like the "Robot Resources", and the Superconductors.

Moreover, Hot Rod’s Deceleration Debuff activates when he hits with his Ranged Attacks, a module that will help with that will be the Laser Guidance module. The laser Guidance module increases the defender’s Projectile Speed, making it harder for opponents to Sidestep it.

Louie lays Down The Laws of Animation For Hot Rod

Cuz: I’ve gotta start with the Hotness. In HR’s special 1 move he exhibits serious breakdancing skills. Hand on ground, spin, kick, twisting kicks inverted in the air...we’re talking Electric Boogaloo stuff. So, who inspired you more ... Ozone or Turbo?

Louie: I was aiming for a combination of smooth, smooth, smooth with a finish of power. So I think Turbo, haha.

Cuz: Cool, but maybe next time you could have him throw down some cardboard so he doesn’t scuff up his paint job. Onwards. Having seen the movie now, it seems he could have a new ranged attack. Were you tempted to have him transform into car mode, haul ass at opponent, then transform and eject a human projectile like he did the woman in the movie? If not, what was your focus for making Hot Rodstand out?

Haha, that's right. This is a completely new and different version of Hot Rod that no one on the team was familiar with. Coming up with the fighting style for this Hot Rod was very challenging, even after deploying our Kabam ninjas for something juicy. We were able to get a hint but still required a lot of back and forth within the character team. The team did agree on making Hot Rod a very gymnastic style ninja where he was doing a lot of handstand and aerial attacks. We really wanted to make him different from his brother in arms Bumblebee. Hope we were able to capture that for our game.

  • Special 3 – Time Bubble Blast - A temporal coup de grâce. Hot Rod’s uses the most powerful setting on his Time Gun, inflicting Deceleration for 20 seconds.

Thanks to a tip from fellow Seibertronian ToaLeePrime, we have the full intel report from Forged to Fight's latest addition to the Autobot side of the game (though it really matters very little for your team): Hot Rod, sporting his Transformers: The Last Knight design! Check it out below.

Transformers News: The Last Knight Hot Rod Joins Kabam Transformers: Forged to Fight


About Hot Rod:

Faction: Autobots

Class: Warrior

Long undercover on Earth with his brother in arms, Bumblebee, Hot Rod is a powerful and agile warrior with a unique Time Bubble Cannon that definitely packs a punch.
Stats and Abilities:

2-Star:

Health: 1697
Attack: 158
Max Rating: 552

3-Star:

Health: 4167
Attack: 337
Max Rating: 1313

4-Star:

Health: 10829
Attack: 876
Max Rating: 3476

Basic Abilities: Deceleration and Critical Buff

Ranged Attacks

Hot Rod’s Time Gun has a 60% chance to inflict Deceleration for 3.2 seconds.

Deceleration

Prevents the opponent from Evading attacks and reduces the opponent’s Power Flow by 22~37.5% per stack.

Melee Attacks

Gains a Critical Rate Buff for 2.8 seconds when the opponent is under the effect of a Deceleration Debuff, increasing Critical Hit Rate by 7.9~18%.

Critical Heavy Attacks

40% chance to Stun for 1.2 seconds.

Signature Ability – Acceleration

Special Attacks: Overclocks Hot Rod’s engines, increasing his Power Flow on attacks by 60~120% for 7 seconds. Additionally, while Acceleration is active, Hot Rod has a 30% chance to Evade Ranged Attacks.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Punishing Pirouette

A flurry of aerial kicks to knockdown the opponent.

Special 2 – Time Tampering
Series of acrobatic kicks that ends with a taste of the Time Bubble Gun.

A powerful blast from his Time Gun inflicts Deceleration for 9 seconds.

Special 3 – Time Bubble Blast
A temporal coup de grâce.

Hot Rod’s uses the most powerful setting on his Time Gun, inflicting Deceleration for 20 seconds.

Synergy Bonuses:

Incoming:

Code 12: Reckless Driving (Prowl)
Hot Rod gets an Attack Buff when Heavy Attacking.
Enemies (Barricade)
Hot Rod gets +8% Attack
Racing Rivals(Mirage)
Hot Rod gets +30% Critical Damage
Brother in Arms (Bumblebee)
Autobots get +8% Armor and +6% Melee Damage in Solo Missions.

Outgoing:

Allies
Bumblebee gets +8% Armor
Enemies
Barricade gets +8% Attack
Racing Rivals
Mirage gets +30% Critical Damage

Strong Match-ups:

Bumblebee and Sideswipe
Evasive Bots will have a very hard time against Hot Rod, his Decceleration Debuff will completely negate the opponent’s chance to activate their Evade abilities.
Bonecrusher
Hot Rod relies on his Critical Rate Buffs in order to inflict Critical Hits reliably. Being able to control his Critical Chance gives him a major advantage against Bots like Bonecrusher, who will often activate a Bleed if you Crit against him.

Weak Match-ups:

Grindor
Hot Rod generates a lot more Power because of his signature ability. Grindor gets stronger the more Power the opponent gets, enabling him to deal a lot of damage.

Recommended Modules for Hot Rod:

Laser Guidance Module
Hot Rod has a chance to inflict Decceleration on his Ranged Attacks, Laser Guidance will further enhance damage and also make it easier for Hot Rod to hit with those attacks because of the ranged projectile speed increase.
Robot Resource
Robot Resource reduces the Power generated on attacks and in exchange provides passive Power over time, but Hot Rod’s signature ability will enhance his Power generated in attacks, neutralizing the negative effects of the module and making it extremely powerful.

Another Chapter of the Multiverse Saga unveils with the clash between Drift and Barricade. Will honour prevail over mockery? Or can words be stronger than will?

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Outlaws

Outlaws

Transformers News: Transformers: Earth Wars Event - Outlaws

Driven by honor and a desire to prove worthy to the Autobots cause, Drift agrees to dive into the unknown, hoping to stop the Decepticons from breaking the natural order of the Multiverse.

Fast in tongue and wheels, Barricade is one step ahead, already looking for Cybertronians willing to join Megatron and fulfill his lust for Earthly conquest.

What kind of lawless, chaotic universes awaits these two? And what kind of unthinkable powers can their potential recruits hold?

A warrior-born, Drift abandoned his former ruthless ways, exchanged his guns for swords, and became a crusader for justice – albeit his own brand of rough justice. Because of Drift’s shady past, his new Autobot allies are slow to trust him and despite his loner attitude.

Drift suffers in isolation, but never stops trying to prove his worth, and trustworthiness. His Great Sword draws on his own Spark energy.

Drift becomes playable tomorrow at 10AM ODT in Transformers: Forged to Fight. For those wondering why they went with the blue Age of Extinction version, its because the more reference the game designers have the better and there is simply so much more of blue Drift out there. So it helps them make a model that is more accurate to what we saw. In the occasion of this playable character, Kabam has provided us with a few goodies including a new video, a 360 view and an interview. Enjoy!



Here is a 360 view of the character

Transformers News: Spotlight on Drift from Transformers: Forged to Fight with new Video and Developer Interview

Here is the developer interview.

The Dirt On Drift

The Decepticon turned Autobot Drift has been hanging around in the shadows on New Quintessa for a while, but now he formally enters the fray. Let’s talk with some of the people that brought Drift to life in Forged To Fight – Francois Dinh Quang, Ryan Boulanger, and Nick Williams.

Francois Gets Frank About Drift

Cuz: I noticed that Drift has a penchant for tossing his blades around. You’re the animator, what’s the deal with this? Aren’t you worried that he will run out of swords? Or, do you have inside info that he’s sponsored by Schick or some other company that makes blades and has somehow attached themselves to the Transformers?

Francois: When we researched Drift and were watching him in Transformer AOE, the team noticed that Drift is not the type of bot that would cry over losing his blade. He’s always ready to beat bots and bleed some energon even if it means tossing his sword into someone’s face and keep on fighting with another blade. We try to give him that flair into his specials, he will beat his opponent with as many as he can get his hands on!

Cuz: He has that samurai thing going on and his name is Drift…were you ever tempted to skip the whole bot thing altogether, give him the nickname Tokyo and just have him do burnouts and donuts everywhere?

Francois: At some point I thought about keeping him in his car state and just pay homage to Tokyo Drift, unfortunately Tokyo Drift is my least favorite movie of the franchise. We still decided to keep Drift doing one drift before his samurai side takes over and drift thru the air slashing his way out.

Ryan Discusses The Design Behind Drift

Cuz: I’ve had the Decepticon Bludgeon on my team for a while now, and Drift seems like a pretty good Autobot foil to the Master of Metallkito. Gives us the lowdown on Drift. What makes him tick? (Don’t say energon and his spark.)

Ryan: Bludgeon is all about raw power, being a tank he is naturally the most armored of the warrior class. Drift on the other hand is a master of Diffusion, a martial art that rewards focus and precision.

Drift is all about keeping your Combo Count high and avoiding the attacks of your enemies. As his Combo Count grows he’ll gain Precision, Critical Damage and Bleed Duration buffs. Precision is going to stop opponents from Evading while the Critical Damage and Bleed Duration buffs are going to pump out the damage. Drift’s final trick is his ability to Evade Bleeding opponents, useful when trying to keep that Combo Count high and impress your sensei.

Cuz: Oh, precision. Not my strong suit, but I do like high combo counts. If Drift lands on my team, I may take him out for a spin; however, if I leave him on my base to defend, he’ll need the right mod. Which one would that be?

Ryan: Hmm, I hate giving out these secrets but there are a few obvious ones that jump to mind. Nightbird’s Mark perfectly complements Drift’s ability to Evade and hold his Combo while upgrading his Critical Hits. Harm Accelerator is already a great Module but it becomes unreal in the hands of Drift, allowing him to indefinitely Evade his opponent and further amplify his Bleed damage.

Nick Makes Drift Dazzle

Cuz: I’m digging Drift’s Special 3 attack. You snuck a bit of a whirlwind in there. Tell us about the hows and whys for his effects and also tell me will I ever get a cow put into one of your twisters?

Nick: I wanted to sell Drifts’ effortless agility. He spins a lot during his attacks. By using a combination of the whirlwind for his burnout and the trails for his swords, helps visually sell the speed of his movements. If the modelers make a cow, I’ll throw one in!

Cuz: So, no cows. Hmmmm. Oh well, next time. How did you go about making him feel different than the other two similarly swordy bots Windblade and Bludgeon?

Nick: As for the differences between Bludgeon and Drift – Bludgeon is very pronounced in his movements – There is a weight behind his strikes. I used fewer sword trails and more ground based FX to showcase the force of Bludgeons hits. For Drift it was the opposite – More sword trails and wind FX to show Drifts agility and lightness on his feet.

Hot Rod to be the Stand Out Character in Transformers: The Last Knight

Now that the embargo is out for Seibetron's visit of Kabam studios and all that they saw and heard, we wanted to share a specific tidbit related to the Transformers: The Last Knight film. Due to their close connection with Hasbro, two of Kabam's high ranking staff read the script to Transformers: The Last Knight inorder to see how they could related some of it to the game. They had to pick one new character to include in the Forged to Fight game. After reading the script there was no doubt in their minds that the best character to add would be Hot Rod.

"We wanted Hot Rod, he was the stand out bot in the film" - Mike McCartney

"We had almost no reference for his fighting style so we asked Hasbro and they told us he was like Errol Flynn but fighting closer to the ground" - Cuz Parry

Another cool tidbit was that while we were able to play with Hot Rod as a character in Forged to Fight while we visited the studio, we were unable to pull off his signature third special. It was locked since it was Hot Rod making use of a special weapon he uses in the movie and they didn't want to spoil anything. My persoal guess is that it's a bone saw, one can dream.
