3News in New Zealand appears to be the first site to release information about Transformers: War for Cybertron's multiplayer aspects. There isn't a lot of information yet, but according to the article, you can drop in on a mission already in progress, taking control of one of the Autobot NPCs (non-player characters) that follow the player character around on a mission.

Also, and this is very much anticipated, in the head-to-head matches, players can create their own Autobot or Decepticon characters! There will apparently be several classes, upgrades and weapons available to choose from, which seems to indicate that there will be at least a few RPG elements in this shooter.

I wonder how detailed this Character Creation system is. Is it gonna be as complex as Smackdown vs Raw or as simple as Halo?

Meh....I can't stand multiplayer. Wish these companies would put 100% development into having an excellent solo game instead of splitting development into solo/multi.

Yeah i am not to hyped about all this multi player. I don't even like to pay for online so i won't be having it most of the time.

Well the creating your own character was not expected! Could be cool. All of this is hard to guage in positive or negative until we get our hands on it, i mean look at "RE" 5, looked great and had lots of multi player in it just like this, but we know how bad that turned out. So i'll wait, with both a positive outlook and a negative, just to be fair.

Most games don't even come close to Smackdown vs. Raw games for create mode. So I'm just meh on this, probably will be very generic.

Well, this is potentially interesting. I doubt it we be that detailed in customization, but still cool nonetheless.

Very nice! Exactly what I was hoping for. Yay!

I imagine it will be like the character creation in the 2007 DS version of the movie game in apperance. Choose a name, choose the vehicle form, vehicle form decides the robot mode, choose the colour and weapons. MAYBE different heads as well. Know what though? I'd be perfectly happy with that. If they don't utilize the head-set for team voice chat then they might have a selection of voices too but that'd really be stretching it.

If they do go for the headset voice chat then it would be awesome if your voice was garbled slightly to make it sound more Cybertronian heh heh.

Not trying to sound pessimistic, but I want to see actual screens of the customization screen and what not. I was mighty pissed when they hyped one of the DBZ: Tenkaichi games with "Create your own custom characters!" and it turns out you just give the existing characters different power ups to make their strength higher. I think whoever wrote the description on that game needs punched in the face :evil:

I'm very worried that we'll have a few "core" pieces, and then we'll have to buy new componants with real money.

I really hope I'm wrong.

They'd never do that. Maps and characters maybe. But not gear.

Oooh. Make my own character? Sweet...

This may sound silly, but it wasn't until today that I figured out how to truly configure my video card, and after playing ROTF in 720p on high, it has me sold on getting War For Cybertron.

Buying that video card was one of the best purchases of last year. Hot dang.

That's the problem with the 360, it's currently the only console where you have to pay to play online.

Let me introduce you to Exteel and it's NCCoin system, where for real money, you can get access to more equipment and weapons than you can with the in-game not-real money.
