After a premature leak prior to E3, Activision and PlatinumGames confirmed their collaboration to release a groundbreaking new game starring the Transformers Generations characters. Based on Hasbro’s colossal entertainment franchise, Transformers: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a breathtaking comic book-inspired visual style.
Forged with PlatinumGames’ gift for fast-paced action and mesmerizing art design, Transformers: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect. In this incredibly dynamic, combo-fueled experience, players 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 vicious Decepticons.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create contemporary versions of the bold, brightly colored 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 release later this year PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
