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."

Why is Swoop also Snarl? That'd be confusing.

"Snarl! Go!"
"Me Snarl?"
"Or me Snarl?"

And Swoop/SnarlII's bio leaves out his amiability, which I feel is the character's defining trait. In a group of brutish heavy hitters, he's the closest one to downright friendly.

Those... actually appear to be two legitimate Snarl Bios. Huh.

Additionally, the three Dinobot name changes brought about recently actually kind of make some sense:
Slug, as in slow, or a large shotgun round. Crude and powerful. (Admittedly, Slag works better here)
Slog, as in a powerful hit (What significance did Sludge have, anyways?)
Strafe is much more in line with the tone of the other names than Swoop was (Although Swoop is different from the other Dinobots, being friendly and not-a-dinosaur. Also, Strafe is a Technobot.)

I believe in the original comics, Swoop was given a backstory where his original name was Divebomb, a name later stolen by the Predacon, and he took up 'Swoop' as a replacement.

Brought to us by fellow board member Shauyaun, we have news that the smartphone game Earth Wars is about to have a not-so-insignificant update! A beta with a new theme is being released alongside new bots Drift and what appears to be a G1 version of Barricade - likely in a tie-in with The Last Knight - as well as Optimus Prime in his G2 Laser/Titans Return body. How the latter part will play out isn't quite clear especially as the game has so far not given any new looks to pre-existing characters, but check out the images below - taken by player JGEORG5 - and keep your optics to Seibertron for any more news on these developments!

Funnily enough this does seem to share a lot in common with the TLK deluxe. Hood chest, most of the car top hanging off his back like kibble, doors on his arms, the rest of him becoming the legs, his head being a faceplated dealio rather than the actual mouth he had in 2007... no idea where the head design came from though. Looks like a motorcycle helmet crossed with a baseball cap.

Posted by Kurona on May 9th, 2017 @ 7:19pm CDT
I just realised these line-ups represent part of each faction's cast in TLK. Megatron has Barricade, a guy called Onslaught and a dragon; while Optimus has Drift, Grimlock and a guy called Hot Rod. Uh, Rodimus. Uh... it counts!

Though then you've also got two other guys in there I can barely make out. I think that's Bludgeon's tank barrel peeking out under Megs and Onslaught, and is that Bumblebee in the background between Rodimus' legs?

He'll be a Leaderboard prize first (guessing in 2 weeks) and then eventually he'll rotate into the crystal line up.

That's the standard practice.

The Rust Renegades set out on a mission to find Slog. Fight to find out if they succeed and earn up to TRIPLE XP!

Image

Out Of Control

Image

Accustomed to Slog’s wanderings, the Autobots weren’t surprised when they heard Slog may be stuck somewhere in the Rust Desert. Clumsy Dinobot!

But the Rust Renegades aren’t so keen about Slog’s trespassing and launch their own mission to intervene.

Finding Slog won’t be an easy task… especially with Decepticon activity in the area!

New Characters
Get your first look at Dinobot Slog and ruthless Decepticon dictator Straxus!


Image

Image
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.

 


Image

Image
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.

Question remains ... will it be a leaderboard event or a crystal event with the chance to get Slog/Straxus.

Neither are major characters and a lot of people are over leaderboard events these days so it'll be interesting to see which way the Apes go.

If its the event type where you earn crystals and that could net you a 2-4* character ... then perhaps THIS will be the event where I finally get a 4* character from the character event.

Most likely not though.

Megatron and the other Decepticons have arrived at the abandoned Decepticonoutpost where preparations for Slog’s betrayal are nearly complete!

Meanwhile, the Dinobots are on their way to rescue Slog!

With so much on the line, the question on everyone's mind is: What (if anything) is going on inside Slog's head, and will it ruin everyone’s plans?

We're always looking for ways to improve our events and based on player feedback we've made some changes to our upcoming leaderboard event.

This time round, we've tried to make the event enjoyable for a wider number of players, with the top leaderboard prizes being available to more alliances than before.

Additionally, we have enhancements in the works for future leaderboard events to encourage players to remain in one alliance during the war. This will result in the top 40 player's Battle Points contributing towards the total.

Optimus Maximus is coming out of an outpost.

Because HQ15 bases weren't tough enough already.

Moonbase

Image

Thanks to Bombshell, Straxus' secret plans for the Decepticon Moonbase have been unveiled! And Megatron is keen to recover whatever lies in that forgotten base, no matter the cost. 
 
But with the Autobots in the know, will they be able to react in time? Or will Straxus' secret provide Megatron with the advantage he seeks?

New Characters
Experienced fighters who are ready for battle, Kup and Dead End arrive in Transformers: Earth Wars next week! Get your first look at the new bots with their community voted ability Orbital Bounce!


Image

Image
Kup has been there, done that, got the T-shirt. There's almost nothing this veteran warhorse hasn't seen or experienced - so when it comes to swapping stories his fellow Autobots don't even try to compete.
 
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.

 


Image

Image
Despite his dreary, fatalistic certainty that the big shutdown is all that awaits them, Dead End spends more time than any 'bot this side of Sunstreaker making sure he looks his bright shiny best.
 
The "best-looking wreck in the auto junkyard" as Stunticon boss Motormaster likes to say.
 
Nevertheless, Dead End still fights with grim and committed intensity, perhaps determined to take as many Autobots with him as possible.

As we all know, Dead End has always had Dustup's head. Just like how Sideswipe has always had Sunstreaker's head! :D

I feel like this orbital bounce ability is more suited for Skywarp...

:lol:
Although they did fix Sideswipe's head later on, and I'd say say Dead End's looks okay.

On another note, it looks like that unconfirmed edit on the Wiki was right about Dead End!

I stopped playing this game when I got kicked out of mu Alliance on a day I left my phone at home, and couldn't battle for ten hours one day at work. If you're not part of an alliance, it's virtually impossible to rank yourself up.

We’re excited to celebrate our ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY with you! Over the past 12 months 10 million players have engaged in the final fight for planet Earth. Bombshell has done some calculations and this amounts to…

Image

280,000 ALLIANCES
forged to take on enemy forces!

Image

9 TRILLION ENERGON
used to upgrade buildings and research bots!

Image

513 MILLION BATTLES
fought against rival players!

Image

75 BILLION SPARK
used to upgrade bot abilities!

Image

13 TRILLION ALLOY
used to upgrade Defenses!

This wouldn't have been possible without you. Thank you for all of your support!

Haven't played in awhile? You've missed out on a lot.

Image

We’ve seen Superion, Devastator, Optimus Maximus and Bruticus wreak havoc on the Battlefield, causing senseless destruction to anyone in their path.

Image

Factions arrived allowing you to lead both the Autobots and Decepticons from a single account! You can now collect over 100 bots and build the perfect Squad!

Image

Grimlock turned the tide of the battle on Earth after he accidentally brought Optimus Primal and Beast Wars Megatron through The Space Bridge!

However, the battle has only just begun. Laser Optimus, Armada Megatron, Drift and Barricade will be making their way through The Space Bridge next!
