KABAM AND HASBRO UNVEIL TRANSFORMERS: FORGED TO FIGHT

More Than Thirty Years of Transformers History Collides in an Epic High-Definition 3D Action-Fighting Game


SAN FRANCISCO – December 1, 2016 – Kabam, a world leader of massively multiplayer mobile games for a global audience, and Hasbro Inc. today announced the title and key details of TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, a new high-definition, action-fighting mobile game set in an immersive world. The game will feature authentic Transformers “more than meets the eye” action, allowing players to engage with Optimus Prime, Megatron and many other popular Autobots and Decepticons in a stunning 3D environment. The new title will enter beta testing in select territories soon and will be available worldwide in Spring 2017.

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight will give players access to nearly every era of the franchise’s history, challenging gamers to assemble the ultimate team of Transformers characters, including Autobots and Decepticons from the animated TV series, blockbuster films, as well as fan-favorites from the Transformers comic book series and Hasbro’s line of iconic figures. As fans assemble their team, they will forge alliances, battle other players and dive into a unique storyline that goes beyond good versus evil.

“TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight embraces the best that the Transformers brand has to offer, allowing players to collect the most memorable Autobots and Decepticons from every era of the brand’s thirty-plus year history,” said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. “We’re excited to work with Kabam to bring this unique mobile game to life, and think fans will be thrilled with the final product.”

In TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, explore an epic new universe where multiple realities collide to form a massive planetary battlefield. Players will assemble a team of Autobots and Decepticons from across time and space to fight against a world of corrupted Transformers and their villainous overlords. The game features amazing visuals, intense one-on-one battles, meaningful robot to vehicle converting action and deep RPG elements. Transformers such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Starscream and Grimlock will level up over time, unleashing powerful new abilities and devastating robot-vehicle attacks.

“The Transformers franchise and its characters are larger than life, and Kabam is working closely with Hasbro to develop a game that lives up to that expectation,” said Mike McCartney, Executive Producer for TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight. “It will be a thrilling experience for long-time fans of the brand as well as newcomers, offering players incredible visuals, action-packed gameplay, and a truly immersive world.”

TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight is being developed by Kabam Vancouver, the studio who created Fast & Furious: Legacy and Marvel Contest of Champions, a top grossing game on the App Store.

So... yeah, that's a lot of characters in the background. G1 Mirage, Bludgeon, Prowl, Grimlock, Movie Bonecrusher; a BW Rhinox who seems to be on fire...

I don't see a Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat style fighting game working on a mobile device unless they drastically dumb down the controls to Atari 2600/NES button levels. Or use some odd set of slide/swipe control mechanics-which I don't see performing well with the graphics level they look to be going for.

The highly polished video of how they want the game to look is pretty though.

There was, and is. The same style is used for Injustice and WWE Immortals. It's tap the screen to attack and then other combos to trigger special abilities, all of which are upgraded via cards which can be won ... or purchased.

I expect this will be something similar. Having played both MK and Immortals they're quite fun, simple yes, but they need to be to play on phones and tablets (I found they worked best on my phone as I only used my thumbs and they don't reach the middle of my tablet)

Looks like there will be a new mobile game for Android. The preview looks really cool! It reminds me a little of War For Cybertron.

I've got some with some dialog between Optimus and Marissa Fairborn, but I think we are already image heavy.

Gotta say, while I don't have high hopes for the game itself... this is an awesome roster. Really liking it and the adherence to the toy models yet the high quality graphics just look incredible; really shows the Unicron Trilogy how toy accuracy is done.

They look a it too much like toys to me (I have one with Rhinox that looks like plastic to me) but otherwise the graphics are good.

However I looked at them coming out of a couple raids in Earth Wars, my brain had to adjust between style :-P

I have talked to a number of people in the Beta and no one is impressed. A few have already deleted the game, it appears to be extremely repetitive and basically exactly like the Marvel game, no changes but the graphics (or as one put it, scratched off the word Marvel and replaced it with Transformers).


I'm going to try it when I can, but the people I get my info from... I trust their judgement. :(

From an anonymous source, we have some screenshots of the recently announced Transformers: Forged to Fight mobile fighting game from Kabam Vancouver, showing the roster and line-ups of character available on the game, from 'classic' Optimus Prime to movieverse Barricade. The beta version is already open to some countries, so expect more news of this kind coming out soon, too - and keep your optics tuned to Seibertron.com for some possible exclusive content!
