First Transformers Details Revealed

It’s been exactly a year since Activision last said anything about its game based on Michael Bay’s upcoming robot movie, Transformers -- and even then, explicit information about the title was closely guarded (specific consoles hadn’t been named; the developers weren’t identified, etc). But after 52 weeks of nothing, our contacts at Activision have finally come clean and given us a couple of details to work with. Officially known as Transformers: The Game, the Traveller’s Tales-developed actioner is scheduled for just about every platform out there (PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, and Xbox 360) and will come out this summer with nearly identical content. Its storyline will follow the movie closely, giving players control over both the Autobots and the Decepticons as they choose to either protect the earth or pimp slap it. The final number of playable characters is still unknown, but Activision has confirmed that Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Bumblebee, and Ironhide are among them. Each bot has their own set of special skills and abilities too, and gamers will be able to switch between robot and vehicle form at any time. Fully destructible environments (including entire buildings and vehicles) and the ability to use wreckage as weapons are also expected. Combat mechanics still aren’t very clear, but developers do say that each character’s scale and weight affects how they fight. Both ranged and melee battles are possible as well, and there are a few other elements that haven’t been expanded on yet.
