"Came from another universe" might be a little more on the nose than the game's characters may think.

Though, the question remains as to which universe it might have come from.

I think "the Dark Spark" feels lazy as a name in comparison to "the Matrix of Leadership".

Maybe Shokaract's original future that was nullified at the Omega Point?

Heck, this design even looks a bit like the Matrix of Conquest with some of the spikes folded in.

I'm wondering... Could it in-fact be like how the Matrix is Primus' fragment, the Dark Spark is Aligned Continutity Unicron's? Would be a nice set-up to a TRUE sequel to FoC.

Not when Unicron's spark is inside the Earth's core at the time that this game takes place.

That looks beautiful :APPLAUSE:
Finally some explanation to Dark Energon and going deeper into this stuff other than saying it's just Unicron's blood.

Really looking forward to this game.

What more needs to be explained beyond it being Unicron's equivalent of energon?

Plenty has already been explored about Dark Energon in all the fiction we've gotten about it.

What do they mean too dangerous? Wouldn't Megatron or a number of other Decepticons want it?

If it's as cataclysmic as it's believed to be, Megs would be wise to stay away from something that could end up being his own undoing.

Nice to see we're finally getting some updates.

E3's in three days... what are the chances that we'll finally see some actual gameplay outside of trailers?

it was in the decepticon campaign in war for cybertron. starscream claimed that it would destroy him but he survived a very unhealthy dose of dark energon. im making a guess here but i think it might be safe to say that if he can survive the essence of unicron i think he can handle the dark spark pretty well

Let's take a break from the console version of the upcoming video game Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark by Edge of Reality, shall we? Thanks to Siliconera.com, we have some details of the upcoming game's 3DS counterpart. Here's the breakdown:

    * Gameplay seems similar to the Transformers mobile game, Transformers: G1 Awakening, in which characters move around on a 2D landscape, and switches to 3D during battles between characters.

    * Each character has seven different attacks of varying strength, each one needing an escalating number of points to use.

    * Points are earned by a character each turn, with bonus points awarded for blocking enemy attacks.

    * Part of the strategy sounds set to revolve around picking whether to employ low-level attacks to harass enemies, or to take a few rounds to stock some points to bring out a more powerful attack.

    * Each character has a character-specific super move, which is activated by using a specific amount of Energon, limited for each mission, so strategizing when to use these moves are paramount. An example of this is Optimus Prime's Vanguard ability, which makes enemies focus on Optimus to give other allies time to withdraw or regroup.
