Zeta Prime looks interesting. I wonder what his "backstory" is.

In WFC, he is essentially the same guy as Sentinel Prime from the comics. He was the Prime just before Optimus, and he gets his $hit jacked by Megatron & friends. He's a pretty good boss fight, though.

Haha.. the last time I played Transformers was with you a few weeks ago! So no.. that map sucks and not even getting Dead End is going to make it better. I hope Zeta has Ammo Beacon.. although not really necessary when I'm an Autobot..

I know, I'm just being silly. Although we can't call ourselves super awesome until we accomplish that ;) New maps looks like win, especially the one that looks like that meditation garden in Iacon. And tanks!

How about some new single player adventures? The game was cool, but some DLC for the single player mode would be even cooler that more characters and maps for the multiplayer modes. I would buy it tommorrow if were for the single player, right now I'll just buy the new DLC for Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age: Origins.

Pfft, once I get Xbox Live hooked up (still trying to get a wireless adapter :-( ), I can take 'em all. I've fought both Campaign levels on Hard, and they were pretty easy, so bring it on! :lol: As for Zeta, I am THUH-RILLED to the core about him! Dead End as well! He's my new Wheelbarrel, as I was planning on using the Barricade chassis for him, but screw Barricade, Dead End looks more bad ass!

eh like i said before not to thrilled about this...idk if anyone has the same host lost problem like ive always had so to me the multiplayer maps arent gonna be that useful....(also considering i rarely ever got to play the maps from dlc 1 since they were always vetoed)

but at least we get two new chassis for the mp just wishin it was more than Zeta and Dead End..

C'mon high moon bring us Hot Rod Ultra Magnus and Grimlock for the :BOT: and Cyclonus Ramjet and Motormaster for the :CON: !!!

anyone else with me on this?

I seriously wish they would release Grimlock and/or Swoop as DLC. I know they were for the DS, but I've yet to see how they look like. Still, it would be nice if they'd don their War Within look should they ever be DLC.

Less enthused about this, but at least it's likely to bring a few double (or quadruple again please?) XP weekends to promote it. Not really bothered about Zeta Prime, but Dead End is cool I suppose. Really wanted more single player (or rather, more 3 player co-op, since I just did the Trypticon fight with a couple of friends again this evening and it was awesome.

War for Cybertron has posted an opportunity to give feedback on the game. I don't know how long it's been up, I just saw it today so I gave them feedback. Unlike my earlier post I was actually civil about it. So, if any other computer player wants to bug them about the lack thereof on the availability of the DLCs, email them at feedback@transformersgame.com. Maybe some day they might actually listen.

I just bought a PS3 and got the game with the DLC...they weren't done shaking me down for money I see heh. I agree I'd like to see more campaign missions (or a game plus mode that lets you replace members of teams with anyone you want so you could make use of the DLC characters besides Escalation mode.) Also add more customization to your appearance for Multiplayer. The current selection is really weak.

Not sure this is worth buying. Two new characters isn't that much, though Zeta looks sweet. The maps are meh, since the majority of players won't buy these maps, they only make it into rotation about a quarter of the time.

I guess it all depends on price.

I hope that these vehicles (esp. Zeta) don't have the snagging problem some of the other vehicles have. There are some great character models already in the game but its a pain in the ass to try to be like the mighty Optimus Prime in multiplayer, only to have your bumper snag on the edge of ramps stopping you dead, which you usually end up in a second anyway once that happens.

This happens to 2-3 vehicle modes, not just the Prime truck, but that is the only one I can remember right now.

Yeah, I usually go for the ironhide leader model and it seems like the big fenders will get stuck on the corner of an object, leaving me near motionless as I gun the engines in vain and slowly rotate around the corner. Only by letting up on the gas and swivelling will get you unstuck. Kind of frustrating when you're trying to reach an energon cube to avoid dying.

I'm not really a fan of ANY of the maps - but I have to say the maps in DLC 2 are great. I love them :D. One has a huge view of Iacon in the war with lasers blasting and Omega Supreme fighting. I haven't tried the escalation maps yet.
