KABAM AND HASBRO “ROLL OUT” TRANSFORMERS: FORGED TO FIGHT

The New High Definition Action-Fighting Mobile Game Brings Together Iconic Bots from Nearly Every Generation of the “More than Meets the Eye” Franchise

SAN FRANCISCO, Apr. 6, 2017 – Today Kabam, a world leader of massively multiplayer mobile games for a global audience and wholly-owned subsidiary of Netmarble Games, and Hasbro Inc. officially launch TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, a new high-definition, action-fighting RPG mobile game. For the first time ever, Transformers fans and mobile gamers everywhere will be able to build their Transformers team and battle with the most iconic Autobots and Decepticons from nearly every era of the storied franchise’s 30-plus year history.

The game features authentic Transformers action set in a stunning 3D environment, challenging players to assemble the ultimate team of Autobots and Decepticons, including fan-favorite bots from previous and current animated Transformers TV series, Paramount’s blockbuster films, Transformers comic books and Hasbro's line of iconic action 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 brings together some of the most powerful Autobots and Decepticons from nearly every generation of the Transformers franchise," said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President, Digital Gaming and Corporate Development at Hasbro. "The team at Kabam has created a truly remarkable Transformers experience, and we’re confident that fans and gamers will be thrilled with the game.”

In TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, players will 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 robots and their villainous overlords. The game features amazing visuals, intense one-on-one battles, meaningful robot to vehicle converting action and deep RPG elements. Game features include:

• Collect iconic bots from the Transformers universe such as Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron, Waspinator, Grimlock and Soundwave.
• Battle other players with devastating special attacks, ranged blasting, destructible terrain and huge 360 degree arenas.
• Team up with your friends, forge alliances and battle in global events.
• Set a gauntlet of bots and defenses to protect your base, get revenge on those that attack, and raid enemy bases.
• Deploy away teams to score epic loot.

“The Transformers brand is larger-than-life, and Kabam’s sophisticated, centralized tech engine allowed us to deliver HD graphics and a gameplay experience that is fitting for the franchise,” said Mike McCartney, Executive Producer for TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight. “The game features non-stop action, huge bots and a thrilling 360 degree battle arena that we think fans are going to love. It’s a must-play for anyone that is a fan of the Transformers brand or just enjoys quality action-fighting RPG games.”

Ratchet appears to be based on Voodoo Robots not-Ratchet... for some reason...

Well then. It was better than COC I suppose, if nothing else. I jest of course (Except the better than COC part, thats true) I liked it. I joined under the incredibly weird name of Ponky19 (Don't ask I used it for something years ago and it stuck) and enjoyed it. I do wish the character roster was better though. It's not that I want more now, it's that I want... more iconic and interesting characters. We have Bonecrusher, but no G1 Megatron (They can make the gun work). Windblade (Okay fine, I'm biased because I dislike Windblade a lot but my point still stands) but no form of Hot Rod/Rodimus. I like the addition of Beast Wars characters though. So yeah, I like it. Congratulations Kabam, you made something I like!

I think the absense of certain prominent characters is indication of roster additions later that they want some heavy-hitting names on to make an even bigger event. Sure you could have your new fighters headlined by G1 Onslaught, BW Depth Charge and Movie Leadfoot; but doesn't it seem much more impressive to have G1 Megatron and Movie Shockwave leading the charge? Gives the game a lot more longevity that way. Smart move, Kabam; smart move...

Exactly it is smart. I see why they are doing it and agree with them, I am just complaining because for some odd reason I enjoy it. To be honest a lot of it was my disappointment at Windblade being at the forefront (ever so slight exaggeration used) again. I just feel Windblade is being overused at the expense of other characters. Not that I have any problems with people who like Windblade. I just don't like her personally and feel that she is being overused.

Back on topic (This somehow turned into a rant about Windblade) I mostly hope we see some more characters that don't get massive attention (My private hope is Trailbreaker and Nightbeat joining, however unlikely). It's times like this I am glad Swindle and the Combaticons are used quite often and are well known. (They may not be Optimus or anything but they are still quite well known.)

As someone who loves Windblade and considers her one of the best female characters in the franchise (her IDW comics version that is; let's just forget Machinima CW ever existed), yeah, I easily get why someone can grow very VERY tired of her. Hasbro somehow found something to overuse more than the Classics Seeker mold...

Yeah, I'd love to see some more out there characters join. Bludgeon is a really good start though, right?

For sure. The appearance of Bludgeon is a good sign. He may not be completely unknown, but it bodes well for the future. I wonder if the Unicron trilogy would ever be represented? Armada Megatron (Antlers, turret in hid mid-section, potential use of the Star Saber) and Starscream (Like G1 in terms of general abilities but with a sword) would be fun to play as and if Beast Wars made it in I don't see why this can't!

I sent an alliance request. Same user name; it didn't let me type a message.

I like this better than Earth Wars. I'm very curious what events/expansions they'll do. There are many "obvious" characters (as already noted) that they have to saving for something. Bring on the DinoBots! maybe someday they'll have separate battle areas for combiners or citybots...
