As for the game, I'm hoping for a combiner boss battle, for both sides. (as well as maybe revamped versions of the Omega Supreme/Trypticon fights, perhaps as bonus battles- imagine the former but with MORE DAKKA)


one can argue about the storyline for WfC because (and i'm going out on a limb here /sarcasm) those that would play it the most would already know about the history of transformers either being with watching the original series, reading the comics (all incarnations) so there was no need to really expand and give it as much depth - but the dark energon twist was very very well done - just an alternative as to how the downward spiral began to happen (and it does make a lot of sense that way i think, my opinion you don't have to like it if you don't want to!)

More dakka would definitely be a requisite - hands up who loved stomping around with the heavy weapon platforms?


Well I was arguing over the contunity a few posts back, but this is about the toys. I'm just drooling over having a WFC styled Grimlock on my desk at school alongside my good ol' WFC OP. *drools*

There is really SO much potential for high moon to go nuts over... Could play as a smaller bot who pilots a sweet cybertron fighter jet only to land, and out of no where, have the jet turn into a robot and the little bot become the headmaster... seriously, theres just so much they can do with transformers, I can't wait to see whats next for the game. I also don't care too much about story as long as it goes along the general storyline from WFC and G1 leading to tf prime. It'd be really cool if they focused on some individual skirmishes of side stories that tie into the greater scheme of things, like Blurr becoming an autobot soldier (Blurr Spotlight ish)

While watching the tour video from High Moon Studios it appears they have concept art for Wheeljack, an updated concept for Arcee (she was in WFC as an unlockable character in Escalation mode only), and what appears to be Shockwave. With Shockwave and Grimlock could the other dinobots be far behind?

Well, Shockwave was in the first game as a DLC character, and as an unlockable in the DS game.

And Swoop was in the DS game as well.

Those would be lovely additions- maybe have the main storyline, and have like challenge side missions that delve more into certain character(s). Also throw in some DLC challenges/boss battles alongside the DLC maps/characters. Also, boss rush mode would be a pretty cool idea as well (make it like smash all-stars, only with 3 man co-op, and 3 energon cubes to use for each)

Which console was Shockwave unlockable on? The PS3 unlockables were Arcee (Autobot campaign) and Slipstream (Decepticon campaign). I never bothered with the DS version but maybe I should go and pick it up.

Ok, nevermind. I just realized he was a Gamestop exclusive.

Watching the tour video, I wish I could work there someday. :D

Two new concept arts were shown. One was obviously Wheeljack, but could the second one be Sunstreaker? For me, it looks like him, and right now I can't come up with any other yellow transformer. I hope it is him, it's been so long that he has been in any series/game while Sideswipe has been there. :PRAY:

It might be Swindle.

Also, they mentioned a GRIMLOCK LEVEL!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

NICE, just stompin and chompin, ough!
I'm pretty sure that board of character concepts someone mentioned with Arcee and Shockwave was from WFC. They don't usually sprawl ongoing work onto the walls tooo much, and there often isn't even any fancy concept art (more bare bones) until the game is finished. Then they go back in and make a buncha nice concept art pics for strategy guides, and whatever other stuff like wallpapers.

Now that you say it, it could be Swindle. Though it's really hard to tell just from concept art. If it's Swindle, one would think they'd keep the purple optics for him. Yet it also lacks Sunstreakers "ears". It's also hard to tell if it's Decepticon or Autobot from the colors of the lights, because when I look at it they could be either red or purple. |:|

But then again, it's always difficult to say about concept art. In WFC Thundercracker had red optics in concept art, but in the game they were yellow, at least the times I've seen his face in close-up in Escalation. :P

You can unlock him by downloading the first Character Pack, which also has Jazz, Onslaught and Scattershot.

Considering I almost never see more than 150-200 people online I haven't bothered getting the dlc. Every time I play I debate with myself over the 20 bucks for both packs and it's the lack of players (on PS3. I don't know how 360 is) that prevents me from making the purchase.

Seeing the tour, I cannot understand why people in america would live anywhere else than California. I mean, all the awesome stuff comes from there and you have a beach!

Love the huge concept art posters on their walls.

I hope Fall of Cybertron will be a huge succes.

sabrblade i believe this is supposed to be related to g1 and the only reason they had grimlock in the ds game was so those copies could have something the 360/wii/ps3 versions
didn't have to sell more money.

optimus's new body isn't as spectacular as i would like it to be. ya it is more g1 accurate
but it just doesn't work for me.oh and am i the only one who doesn't want the dinobots in there and would rather have someone else.maybe season three characters like hot rod and
springer(I WANT TRIPLE CHANGING ACTION AS AN ABILITY! just think of the multiplayer fun! :D )

*whipcrack*

The Green Bay Packers don't come from there (also Steve Jobs was born in wisconsin, just sayin)

Anyway, A Grimlock level would be badass. Perhaps we'd get snarl/swoop for it as well? (for co-op) Also, it's inspired by G1 (like everything Transformers) but it's pretty much the prequel for Prime.

Hasbro says it is not.

Hasbro wrote:The official story of the original 13 and specifically Alpha Trion has not been explored fully in the modern continuity that Transformers War for Cybertron, Exodus, and Prime are a part of. Anything you know from past generations of the brand may or may not be factual in the new continuity.
Hasbro wrote:The TRANSFORMERS brand team would like to confirm that Transformers War for Cybertron video game, Transformers Exodus novel, and the Transformers Prime television show are in the same aligned continuity. Hasbro is creating a single continuity to tell the bulk of our TRANSFORMERS stories going forward.
Hasbro wrote:The Transformers have lived for millions of years between the War for Cybertron events, and the events seen in PRIME. The Transformer characters have been through a lot in between, battles, new planets, and space journeys etc. As more stories are told, we will reveal exactly how it all connects and that is the fun of the new continuity, no one should feel they know what is coming next. It is a valid point to request that Hasbro helps topline the connections for fans that want to follow the progress of the new continuity.


And, when I did that big analysis of Exodus, I analyzed War for Cybertron as well, revealing that it was just as much in defiance with G1 as Exodus is.
