Getting excited about the new War For Cybertron Downloadable Content? Well the insiders over at Xbox have cooked up a little preview for what's in store for everyone tomorrow. We're getting five new characters, two new multiplayer maps and two new escalation maps. The new characters are not entirely new, three of them were of the pre-order variety - Demolishor, Shockwave and Jazz. The two new faces are Onslaught and Scattorshot, providing a little more chassis differentiation in multiplayer, and more variety in Escalation. The new multiplayer maps Havok and Fortress will test your teamwork, while the escalation maps District and Forsaken will stretch your Autobot or Decepticon brethren to the limit. We'll let Matt Krystek and the folks over at XBox Inside to take it away!



The first downloadable content for WFC will be $10.00 on the PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on XBox Live.

I was very enthused when I first heard about this DLC, but now I think I'll pass on it. There's nothing at all for the single player campaign in the DLC, and while I do dabble a tiny bit in the multiplayer mode, I really don't like Escalation at all and have only played it twice since getting the game, and I'm just not sure it's really worth buying. I mean I'm not a 24/7 multiplayer person, and I really only would care about the Shockwave/Demolisher skins and the two multiplayer maps. It'd probably be a waste of money for a person like myself.

Microsoft either needs someone to update their servers on time, or set actual hard times for DLC going live instead of this vague crap. I just want to trade my fake money that I paid real money for in for the stupid DLC pack. That I better not have to wait until "tomorrow" for as it's already the 27th on the eastern seaboard of the US.

So me and my brother will have to pay $10 separately for each of our accounts? Geez. :roll:

I'm pretty sure it doesn't come out until the 28th for Xbox. 27th was for the PS.

One would go to the PS3 Store, look under Add-Ons for Disc Games then look for Transformers: WFC.

As of 13:00HRS PST, I don't see it yet.

Balls.

Downloaded it at 6 am this morning when the site was updated. I was sitting in Major Nelson's irc channel waiting on it to go live.

Where are people hearing this rumor? I mean its irrelevant now that it is out, but still, nowhere in any of the previews did it say the 28th, at least not that I read.

District is balls, Forsaken is decent, what makes them great is the little events they have here and there. Too bad my teammates didn't get the concept of turning off the waterfalls, I had to do it all by myself :( I srsly get irritated by the guys with 3k Power and not spending it when it's like Wave 10.

Yeah, District takes some getting used to. During the downtime between waves I went to get an over shield and my team activated the defense fields so I couldn't meet them in the room. Needless to say I was guned down by everything. Ty team :BANG_HEAD:

On forsaken though one team I played with managed to get to wave 15 :) I really like the new maps but again the Con one seems to have a bit steeper of a learning curve. Loosing rarely bothers me in this mode cause I honestly don't expect to get past wave 8 with most teams #-o

I also love the new characters too. Nice to have some new bots to play with :KREMZEEK:

Haha, I usually go for any of the invis characters, so Air Raid/Skywarp, and hopefully Arcee/Slipstream by the end of today.

However I did make it to Escalation Wave 29 playing as Bumblebee.. that was a riot.


Arcee is my main so to speak. I find not many groups choose her though. Her invis. saved my ass many a time and even helped me win waves by myself. Yeah, when it comes to Slipstream I never get her cause people are very fast to pick her. Not that it matters cause those games don't usually last more than 30 min anyway. I've only made it to wave 16. I'm sure I could go higher but the groups always disband by then :-(



that's why i can't play the game with randoms...i usually play with commited teams....i love escalation far more than gears' horde or halo's firefight...maybe it's cuz it's transformers....i'm always up for a game of escalation if anyone on xbox wants in...

send me an invite and i'll play
