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.

The folks over at Hasbro and Kabam have sent along some official material for Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile game and their new addition to the character roster: live-action movie Decepticon leader Megatron himself! All information on the playable character's stats are below along with a new image in both modes, GIFs and a short clip introducing him to players - check it out!

All Hail Megatron! That pretty much sums up the Decepticon leader's ambition, and his minions' fear-induced feelings. Pity those that stand in the way of his eternal struggle against his sworn enemy Optimus Prime. Megatron will be joining TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight on Thursday, 7/13 at 10AM PT.

I’ve included a link to high-res character assets below, which includes a super cool fight video showing off Megatron’s special moves and also a 360-degree profile GIF of Megatron!

Shockwave Turnarounds

Shockwave Demonstration Video on Seibertron.com's YouTube Channel




Transformers Forged To Fight Developer QA: Shockwave

Shockwave Revealed

This week we’re going to take a look at the one-eyed wonder himself -Shockwave.

Sam Makes Shockwave Sizzle

Cuz: You were in charge of visual effects for Shockwave. I couldn’t help but notice a recurring theme running through all his moves...purple. Was this some sort of tribute to the late, great Prince?

Sam: C’mon Cuz, you know that purple is the iconic Decepticon colour, particularly for Shockwave.

Cuz: Of course, was just testing you. What was your favorite effect to do for Shockwave?

Sam: Hmmm, probably his last laser blast on the level 3, where you see his gun shooting the opponent into the ground, and thecamera swings around to show the view from his perspective.


Francois Takes Aim With Shockwave

Cuz: I’m really digging Shockwave’s number three special. Take us behind the inspiration.

Francois: For Shockwave’s special three, we wanted to show a sense ofescalation. He starts with his mini-me gun, then his canon and finish you by transforming into his gun form and blasting you through the ground.

Cuz: I’m glad you took sort artistic liberties and actually had him hit the targets and move around with reasonable agility. Fans have been known to knock the big guy for those two qualities;) Of the moves you animated for him, which one is your favorite?

Francois: Definitely his special two. He knocks you back with his energy field and uses his laser beam to cut the screen in two. This move was without doubt inspired by Dragon Ball Z.


Ryan Designs The Decepticons’ Most Famous Bridgewatcher

Cuz: It must have been both an honor and a tremendous responsibility coming up with the stats and design for such a heavyweight fan favorite like Shockwave. What makes the master of logic tick?

Ryan: We knew he was going to be master of Shock (it’s in his name), so Shockwave can absorb energy from the opponent’s ranged attacks to amplify Shock Damage inflicted by his Special and Heavy Attacks. Equipped with Heal Block, Shockwave will ensure that even Healers have no escape from destruction at his hands. Finally his Signature Ability grants him the ability to Undo any damage dealt to him over a certain time period, making the opponent’s defeat all the more inevitable.

Cuz: What’s the best mod to pair him with? Have you made a special aim enhancement mod?

Ryan: The Strange Refractor turns Shockwave into the ultimate challenge for both Ranged and Melee play styles; do you shoot him with a Ranged Attack and have him absorb it or do you move in to hit him with a Melee Attack and risk being Stunned by the Refractor? Shockwave has also cooked up some unseen mods like the "Yet-To-Be-Named" Mod that commanders can eventually use toput him over the top...once he feels the time is right to reveal it of course.

I don't play Forged anymore as I can't get any of the cool bots like Grimlock, Prowl and Shockwave in this case because both I don't understand the game enough to know how to get them and where and I play Earth Wars a lot more (not as much now). That and there's not a lot of my fave bots in FTF which is mainly why I stick to Earth Wars.

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight | Starscream Developer Q&A

He’s been around Forged to Fight for a while now, pestering, annoying, and definitely scheming, but now’s your first chance to own the one and only Starscream. Let’s take a look at what makes him tick.


Derek Makes Starscream Function
Cuz: I appreciate your commitment to keeping Starscream backstabby (or is that backblasty) with his special 3 attack. Tell us about your favorite Starscream move.
Derek: That's easy, his heavy attack, I love seeing him fly as a jet to bring down his opponent!

Nick Sheds Light on Starscream Effects
Cuz: Starscream’s famous Null Ray plays a part of several of Starscream’s moves and is especially prominent in his special 3. How do you make something with such a boring name look and feel cool?

Nick: Lots of powerful beams and strobe lights! Seriously though, Starscream’s Null Ray is what he is known for, so it has to provide an “electrifying” experience for his victim. The null ray itself has a flowing energy beam and more sustained blast rather than a super quick one shot.

Cuz: There are a lot of nefarious Decepticons, but Starscream has to rank near the top for sheer treachery, disloyalty, and cowardly dastardliness. Did you feel a little dirty working on his effects? How did you overcome the feeling that he may in fact, take one of your dazzling effects, and shoot it back at you, right out of your PC?

Nick: Haha, I made sure not turn my back on the screen whenever I worked on him ;).

Ryan Dishes Dirt on The Shiftiest Decepticon
Cuz: I’m pretty stoked at the chance to get Starscream on my team, but I’m also a little worried that he’ll turn around and shoot my team in the back or slip a little something in their Energon. Sell me on why I want the king of treachery on my team.

Ryan: Starscream’s Ranged attacks are second to only Megatron in terms of raw power, but they have the secondary effect of stripping buffs from his opponents. When Starscream removes a Buff he also deals a pulse of Shock damage to add injury to insult. As a Tactician bot, Starscream is most useful when you know your opponent relies on buffs, lucky for Starscream, most bots do.

Cuz: So he strips buffs? That’s like stealing, that’s in his wheelhouse for sure. Good work. He strips buff, but what mod best works with Starscream to buff the Decepticon’s aerial commander?

Ryan: Placing Starscream on the Nightbird’s Mark Module will boost the Critical Chance of his attacks and allow this cowardly schemer to Evade enemy attacks more frequently. The Laser Guidance Module will massively boost the speed and power of his Ranged Attacks, providing Starscream with probably best offensive boost of any potential Mod combination.

Transformers Forged To Fight RAMJET Developer Q&A


Seeking Answers About Ramjet

Derek Uses His Head When Animating Ramjet
Cuz: As much as I want to use a Dad joke about Ramjet using his head, I actually am pretty stoked on how he uses his chest in his Special One. Those pectorals rockets are rad. Tell us about your favorite animations for Ramjet.

Derek: Yeah i’m still recovering from all the ramming! Special 2 is one my favorite moves spinning off a 2 kick attack to the chest to launch his arm rocket is very cool!


Sam Makes Starscream’s Buddy Shine

Cuz: I notice in Ramjet’s Special 3, he does a cool strafing run but then his rocket barrage misses. As the person responsible for his FX, is this your fault? Why the hate for Ramjet, Sam?

Sam: I blame the animators! Seriously though, there's no hate. Ramjet's awesome, just a little hot-headed and that doesn't help his aim, is all.

Cuz: I like that answer, it’s a Motormaster-sized bus you threw the animators under. Easier question, what’s your favorite effect you did for Ramjet?

Sam: Definitely the shockwave blast and then full body slam into the ground on his Special 3. It's fun adding the extra layer of drama to cool animations.


Ryan Gives the Lowdown on Designing Ramjet

Cuz: I have to imagine Ramjet must play pretty well with his fellow Seeker Starscream. Tell us about Ramjet’s skills and who to team him up with and who he might have trouble beating.

Ryan: Ramjet is designed to be an easy bot to use, almost all of his Special Attacks are guaranteed to leave his opponent’s Stunned, Burnt, or both. Ramjet doesn’t just like smashing into enemies, he loves it, and to that end Ramjet becomes Unstoppable while using Heavy Attacks, ensuring he wins any (and all) head-on collisions.

You’ll want to pair Ramjet with his boss Starscream to enable the powerful Seeker synergy. When paired with Motormaster, both bots will share their cool destructive abilities with each other. Ramjet is going to have trouble dealing with Tech bots like Mirage that stifle his Power Gain or those like Rhinox that Shield themselves against his potent Special Attacks.

Cuz: And, here’s the standard question for Commanders that like to focus on the base and defense...what is Ramjet’s best mod to pair with? What mods will give him a headache?

Ryan: Opponents better get used to being immobile while facing Ramjet on the Paralyzer Mod. The Paralyzer will Stun the opponent, Ramjet will Stun the opponent, and the enemy will be unable to save themselves. On the other hand, Ramjet will hate fighting opponents on the Exo Filter. The Filter will cleanse his Stun and Burn Debuffs leaving Ramjet toothless and cone headed.
