I see a few generic dudes and a big guy. I'm guessing these are game-only opponents.

Drift's face looks more fitting when rendered in these game graphics than it does in the movie's look.

There has been a lot of debate as to whether Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will have online PVP multiplayer matches similar to Fall of Cybertron's: Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Headhunter.

Well....it looks like we can put the rumors to rest, because it seems certain that ROTDS has axed all online multiplayer other than Escalation.

This is based on the recently released In Game trophies for ROTDS shown here: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (PS3) Trophies - PS3Trophies.org

Notably, there are no trophies related to any multiplayer achievements other than Escalation.

Compare this to the in game trophies for "Fall of Cybertron", which contains nine PVP multiplayer trophies: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Trophies - PS3Trophies.org

• Reconfiguration Matrix - Create a custom character in Multiplayer
• Headmaster! - Reach max level in a single class
• King of the Scrap Heap - Reach max level in all four classes
• What Prime Directives? - Unlock Prime Mode
• Full Throttle Scramble Power! - Earn MVP in any game mode during a public Multiplayer match
• Ultimate Menasor - Capture three flags in a single CTF game during a public Multiplayer match
• Moonbase One - Personally capture all 3 nodes in a conquest game during a public Multiplayer match
• Ballistic Energon Goodie - Return five heads at once in a headhunter game during a public Multiplayer match
• Heavy Metal War - Kill 6 different opposing players in a TDM game during a public Multiplayer match

So, for all the fans who are planning to pre-order the game because they were looking forward to more online PVP matches, it looks like this game should be downgraded from BUY to RENT.

Just because there are no trophies for it doesn't mean it's not there. People always complain about having to play multiplayer to platinum a game. Maybe the developers are finally listening.

There's also been no note of PVP MP in the press releases.

It wasn't private at first. I watched it this morning when it was first posted. It was made private later in the day.

Handheld strategy

Details are scarce, but Activision has also brought on developer WayForward to create a separate 3DS game that bears the same title – a tactical RPG starring the Autobots and Decepticons. “This version features a compelling twist allowing fans to play through a tactical strategy game," says produce Andy Owen. “Players will plot their next move on detailed strategic maps and then engage in epic one-on-one 3D battle sequences featuring over 50 Transformers characters."


Holy cow! Thanks, Sabrblade!

It sounds like getting to level 25 is for competitive multiplayer.

Leveling is said to be shared between Campaign and "multiplayer", according to IGN.

Similarly, the game's levelling system will be shared across the single and multiplayer portions of the game, so experience earned in one can be used in the other to unlock new characters, abilities and weapons.


I know we covered this before, I just couldn't find the specific article. :oops:

Looks like no competitive MP, not entirely surprised by it though. On the plus side it looks like it'll be a really easy plat.

Having played both War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, I can honestly say that I won't miss the removal of PVP multiplayer. It was tolerable in the first one, and I couldn't bring myself to play it in the second. And both rapidly degenerated into lobbies of people boosting achievements/trophies.

Besides, I always like Co-op over PVP in games, and Escalation in WFC was one of my favorite things in any game. Looking forward to how it plays in this, even if High Moon isn't making the game.

Escalation was the main online draw for me as well. I was in fact disappointed that we couldn't take our customized bots into escalation. Or that we were stuck with pre-made teams with the same four abilities. Here's hoping that no more PvP leads into far more options for Co-op.

"Aligned" is now an officially official term (rather than the informal, semi-official term that it's been up till this point).

Also, there are references to Willy Wonka and Independence Day in those achievements. :P
