Yessir. Not a lick of difference, other than it being for PC.

Based on how Skywarp and Thundercracker acted in the WFC game I can't help but think that they reversed the character readouts, since Thundercracker was more of a scientist and Skywarp a warrior.

I may end up getting the game for PC since it's only 49.99, and in Canada every other platform has raised it's prices because of the Canadian dollar failing (new games are 69.99 instead of 59.99.) While Steam hasn't changed it's prices because of the dollar failing.

Courtesy of IGN, we have a short video that shows online game play from the soon-to-be-released Activision game, Rise of the Dark Spark. Footage appears to be from the Xbox One version of the game.

Check it out below:

It looks very cut-and-paste from War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron. I couldn't even find anything that was new about it besides a map here and there.

if i didnt know this was dark spark id swear it was footage taken from WFC & FOC. The graphics dont even look next gen ,yeah its a low quality condensed video but still the lighting and particle effects look like the previous games. Only way id run out & buy this day 1 is if they can guarantee me that the campaign is 10-15 hours or more not including cutscenes & has replay value. If its just FoC with bayformer stuff thrown in then ill wait til its around $10 or $20. Plus sniper elite 3 comes out the week after so they'd really need to do something grand to get me to pick this up instead of that.

You're gonna be waiting a very long time and some fairly high expectations tbh.

Activision games almost never droip in price under the first year it's out (Steam sales being the exception), FoC is still over $40 in stores.

A 10-15 hour campaign is pretty rare to get, A lot of recent games are only 5-8 hours. Every CoD games in 6 or less, same with every BF game, even the most recent Tomb Raider only took me 8 hours to beat. Doesn't seem like a realistic expectation.

I am cautiously curious about this game. I did not like FoC very much but I adored the first. In Foc they butchered Escalation. The same 4 maps and only a handful of maps and the same characters each time really blew away any re playability the first game had. I only could tolerate and handful of matches :( I may wait and see some reviews/ character and map rosters before I bite.

I totally agree with you bro.

To add to the why Escalation is bad compared to WFC:
- Characters almost don't talk at all anymore
- Enemies don't transform anymore
- Way to easy, with the gun upgrade and "set dificulty" option
- Limited amount of only 4 characters! Why?
- Only 4 maps, they should've spammed that mode with at least 8
- Wave limit of 15, you should always end in defeat in an Escalation game
- Ammo beacon is kind of overpowered, as is heal beam
- Maps should've been bigger

I still play WFC Escalation, I love Brawl, Thundercracker and Arcee.
Why isn't Arcee in FOC anyway?

FOC has a better singleplayer and multiplayer. Everything looks better and
the controls are better. But Escalation should've also been better, it's my favorite
game mode.

Ontopic

Remnant!

I'm totally fine with them recycling old maps/weapons/characters. The more the better.
Just hope the framerate's good and the gameplay is the same as FOC.

Possible spoiler alert, though.
