Activision has announced it is teaming up with PlatinumGames to release a new game starring the Transformers Generations characters. Based on Hasbro’s franchise, Transformers: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a comic book-inspired visual style.
Featuring fast-paced action and mesmerising art design, Transformers: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect.
Players will battle as one of five Autobots – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack and Grimlock. Throughout the game, players unlock new skills, forge new weapons, and augment their characters to battle against the evil Decepticons, including Megatron and the powerful combiner Devastator.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create contemporary versions of the bold, brightly coloured designs of the original Transformers characters. The game features a story inspired by the IDW comic book universe and includes the talents of legendary voice actors like Dan Gilvezan as Bumblebee, Frank Welker as Megatron and Soundwave, Gregg Berger as Grimlock, and Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime.
Transformers: Devastation is expected to arrive October 6th 2015 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC via Steam. Check out the official Transformers Game website for more information.
