If you're a fan of Transformers: Earth Wars, then you'll likely know that G.I. Joe is being incorporated into the game!

"The G.I. Joe franchise is making its debut in Transformers: Earth Wars. Players will get the chance to unlock Joe team vehicle versions of Autobots Hound and Jetfire, and Cobra versions of Decepticons Soundwave and Skywarp. A pair of the new characters are scheduled to be released the week of October 21st."


And thanks to our friends at Space Ape games, we have a new video, posted to Seibertron's YouTube channel, that shows off the first efforts of that collaboration, Soundwave as a H.I.S.S. tank and Hound as a G.I. Joe V.A.M.P. complete with transformations back and forth, as well as the totally radical 80s soundtrack. Check it out below, and while you're at it, peruse Seibertron's YouTube channel and see what other awesome Transformers content there is!

Rather then see this in a game, I'd like to see this done with the toys. I thought it was pretty awesome in I believe it was Energon, where they had Snow Cat based on the GI Joe Vehicle. At least I think he was called Snow Cat. I don't remember now.

But I think it would be awesome if they did use the Joe Vehicles for transformer alt modes.

You're right about Snow Cat.

Here's the thing though: I'm not so sure we AREN'T getting these toys. Remember, Earth Wars was were we first saw the Dinobot combiner Volcanicus well before the toy even came out in Combiner Wars. Now we get the reveal of Earthrise and next thing you know we are seeing GIJoe Transformers in Earth Wars. Plus, it is the 35th Anniversary...we could have a few surprises coming from Hasbro.

Don't count your chickens before they're hatched as Volcanius may have appeared first the twins they created specially for this game remain unique to it with no toys on the horizon.

A Comment on Backflip Studios

Image


In the past week, news spread about restructuring at Backflip Studios that has lead to a closure of parts of the studio. We want to use this space to give out a clear message that those changes at Backflip do not have any impact on Transformers: Earth Wars or on you, our players.

Space Ape has been running TF:EW, from its development to the day-to-day operation, together with Hasbro, for over 3 years and we will continue doing so. There are no plans other than to stay with you in this game we all love for years to come.

We are working with Hasbro on exciting new features and content for 2020 and are excited to share more as soon as we can.

Under Investigation

Image


Here are the issues reported that we've been investigating:
  • Inspiring Charge effect does not apply to bots, when Optimus Prime/Megatron has started their ability while those bots were deploying.
  • Improvements to how the following bots behave if Inspiring Charge or Battle Orders abilities start while they are using their ability:
      Slash & Rippersnaper
    • Punch & Counterpunch
    • Snarl & Hun-gurrr
    • Sentius Magnus & Sentius Malus
    • Cheetor & Blackarachnia
    • Laser Optimus & Armada Megatron
    • Impactor
  • Slash & Rippersnaper still chase outpost bots after finishing their ability.
  • Punch & Counterpunch does not follow Inspiring Charge

Image


Bug Fixes / Improvements

Image


The following bug fixes/improvements are coming to the game with a content push this Thursday.
  • We have increased the area of effect for Hound V.A.M.P. and Soundwave H.I.S.S. Glass Gas and Targeting effect. This should also help to keep the number of targets affected in the area more consistent.
  • Gold Cybertronian Charge Power Core can now inflict up to 21% more damage if uninterrupted. (Previously 15%)
  • G-Metal Cybertronian Charge Power Core can now inflict up to 30% more damage if uninterrupted. (Previously 15%)
  • Hot Rod’s Blessing of the Matrix and Nemesis Prime’s Power of Darkness cannot be cast on Quintus Prime Core’s Sharkticons anymore
  • Counterpunch can now attack targets behind walls.
