SAN FRANCISCO – February 5, 2015 – DeNA and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) have released TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a turn-based tactical mobile game inspired by the all new fan favorite COMBINER WARS comic story and the expansive 30-year history of the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS universe. Players will collect and assemble epic teams, made up of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS who will fight side by side in a unique campaign mode and intense player vs player (PvP) mode to engage with gamers and TRANSFORMERS fans from around the world. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is now available as a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices, and Amazon Appstore for Fire tablets and Android devices.

In TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, players will manage an army of TRANSFORMERS characters bringing up to four onto the battlefield where they will strategically unleash unique powerful abilities and ALTERNATE forms to take down their opponents. By leveling up TRANSFORMERS characters and linking multiple ones together players can unlock powerful Combiners and inflict critical damage to change the tide of the battle.

“TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS celebrates the rich lore and character universe of TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS and the COMBINER WARS story, adding a new twist on their visual styling,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.

“The fun and calculated turn-based gameplay, diverse characters and abilities and deep leveling and combo system in TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will give players the hundreds of options to make their team more powerful and keep the competition fierce,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA.

From Generation One to TRANSFORMERS United to the fan favorites from the IDW Combiner Wars comic series, TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS features over 75 legendary characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, BUMBLEBEE and COMBINER CENTURITRON. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will feature online PvP leaderboards where the top players will receive in-game prizes, valuable resources and limited-time competitive modes. Friends and players will be able to connect to form Leagues and earn an edge over their competition.

Just played it on my iPad... Not quite sure what I'm doing. Feels like a glorified trading card game.

I long for a proper tactical c&c style game where you have to go out a build your bases... Harvest energon and use your troops' abilities to outflank and defeat the opponents. With bases progressing till you build metroplex or trypticon that launch a final attack by transforming and stomping towards the enemy base

The Transformers: Battle Tactics app has updated, as well as provided us our first glimpse of what the upcoming Galvatronus combiner will look like once Voyager Class Cyclonus is released. (Cyclonus's torso mode features the head to Galvatronus.)

We've mirrored the image below and if you'd like to participate in the game itself, you can download it from the following sources:

Is Galvatronus going to be in the comics, or is this just something fun Hasbro is doing? I like Cyclonus' current role in the comics. So much depth has been put into him, and would hate he go status quo on us with Galvatron. Keep him with the Lost Light crew.

I'm not a big fan of the idea of Cyclonus being a combiner, and especially not a fan of him being called Galvatronus in combined mode.
Since I am more than content with my Generations Cyclonus figure, this new one is an easy pass for me.

Was anyone really surprised by this? He's the equivalent of the counter to Ultra Prime. That's all. It's possible he might get new limbs eventually like prime is but for now it's fine. It won't be in the comics, it's just a toy.

I'd be cool with a scourge limb maybe because then BOOM! Scourge and sweeps.

I would buy this if they made a Scourge combiner limb. That way I can add 4 sweeps to the main torso.

This has to be something goofy that Hasbro cooked up since he's time hopping with the LL crew and not having anything to do with the stuff happening with Galvatron on Earth.
I'm with you, this is just going to screw up everything they've accomplished with his character in the comics if they have him side with Galvatron especially if it's done for the sole purpose of giving legitimacy to Hasbros' dumb idea.

He won't be. Combiner wars is only a 6 issue event for IDW. The only bots from the lost light that are crossing over are the protectobots(which Im shocked they're being included in the comic). This is just a toy and that's all. Combiner Wars is going be a toy line going into 2016. It's a way to get a lot of combiners and just for fun. You don't like Galvatronus? Fine, don't buy Cyclonus or just keep him in his individual mode. It's like Huffer, windcharger, thundercracker, Megatron, Armada Megatron, Huffer and Bomshell. Just toys to go under the subtitle.

It's like throwing a fit were getting this and not other classic combiners. It's going till 2016, were probably going to see some of them later. Calm your tits people.

Never said I didn't like the toy idea. In fact it's a shame I see more Cyclonus in the pic, less Galvatron, but cool nonetheless. Just inquiring who is going to show up for Combiner Wars. Hoping we get Abominus, I know we got one during Prime's run, would like to see in this set, or better yet Predaking in the same way as Devastator, all Voyagers. One can hope and wish right?

It looks so little like Galvatron I don't really care what they call it. I'm totally sold on Voyager Cyclonus and probably won't be using his combined mode.

I'm a little more interested in his apparent mind control puppets running around at his feet. Is that Wildrider?

I wouldn't put a lot of faith in another Titan combiner. I'm not pointing the finger at you but remember when Metroplex was announced? Everyone and their mother was saying "well obviously we're going to be getting Trypticon, Fort Max, Scorponok ect." What did we get after Metroplex? Nothing not even a redeco of the Metrotitan or Necrotitan.

Devastator is a one and done thing like metroplex was. Could we get Predaking or Abominus? It's totally possible, but it'd be a voyager and four deluxes or we'll get at least one more original Combiner after the fan built team or...they will be the last one. Who knows. It's great we're getting combiners to begin with. Makes me think the only reason were getting combiners is because every character but a couple from 84-87 have now been modernized.

As much of a fanboy I am, I also look at these from the other point of view. If you make the predacons or terrorcons, can you retool/redeco any of them? Probably not so you're going to make those molds and use them once, or fun pub will use them someday for whatever crap they can think of. Or, you can play it safe and use the more popular combiners that can be retooled and repainted over and over like three of the protectobots being retools of stunticons and aerialbots which make sense. It's close enough. I won't be surprised if we get the combaticons and swindle is Offroads mold, vortex is a deco of alpha bravo and this is extreme but brawl is rook and maybe a new blastoff. It works. I'm a huge fanboy but I'm just happy with what we get.

Would it be more legitimate to gripe about not getting non-classic combiners like Landfill or Ruination? :grin:

You're right, the animal-based combiners are too individually specific for retool purposes.

Sorry Seacons, your not up to bat.

It does seem to be a decent-looking torso, at least.
