Prepare for devastation!
It seems we have a new Transformers video game to look forward to. Gaming site Pure Xbox has leaked some images and information of what is coming to us next from Activision.
Transformers Devastation, as it is known, is a cel-shaded brawler with a very slick artstyle recalling the look of the original Generation 1 cartoon. From the images we can see the Autobots in the game include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Sideswipe, with Optimus and Bumblebee looking like they may be playable characters. Decepticons shown include Megatron and Devastator, the latter of whom absolutely towers over Optimus. Generic Decepticons armed with swords are also shown in droves, and they seem to resemble the Generation 1 Decepticon Runamuck. There is evidence of combat involving both guns and also close-range melee weapons, such as a pair of swords on Sideswipe and Optimus using his energy axe.
Further details are unknown, but Pure Xbox reports this game is heading to Xbox 360 for certain. We’d imagine that Activision will not ignore the current generation, or the Playstation, so we’d imagine that Xbox One, Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 versions must also be on the cards.
Allegedly, this game will be officially unveiled at E3, so we hope to see more then. For now, check out the images which we have mirrored here for your viewing pleasure.
Is this finally the Generation 1 cartoon inspired game we’ve all been dreaming of?
