If the August 21 release date for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron seems like too much of a long wait for you, you’re in luck, because the game’s demo is going to hit a few weeks in advance, so that you’ll be able to get a taste of what’s to come this Tuesday, July 31st,
High Moon Studios seems to be one of the few game devs these days that really know how to translate established licences into enjoyable videogames, as evidenced by its successful adaptation of the Transformers license into the videogame format (via Transformers: War for Cybertron and its upcoming sequel, Fall of Cybertron).
It’s therefore understandable that fans would be excited when High Moon teased an upcoming Marvel game, which has now been confirmed to be a videogame adaptation of the Deadpool franchise. A teaser has been released through the SDCC:
High Moon Studios is one of the few game devs that actually have enough sense to make a good game out of license, even though it’s usually easier for developers to just create a half-arsed game and enjoy as the cash starts to roll in. Their Transformers: War for Cybertron is arguably the only enjoyable video game based on the Transformers license that has come out for any system, and while we’re still waiting for the follow up, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, High Moon may give us another videogame that will do a licensed property justice. Namely, a new game based on Marvel Comics’ property.
We’re still a couple of months away from the release of the new Transformers Fall of Cybertron game, so we’re still hungry for more information and gameplay footages from the War for Cybertron sequel. High Moon Studios gives us both, in a new trailer highlighting the gameplay aspects of one of the main characters, the Dinobot Grimlock.
Back when Transformers: War for Cybertron was first released, the game gave classic Transformers fans the best Transformers-related videogame experience that isn’t based on the Michael Bay movies. War for Cybertron featured fast-paced third person shooter action, as well as seamless transformations that work well within the combat. As a bonus, the game gives you the chance to play through the story from the perspective of both the Decepticons and the Autobots.
The Transformers have had a nice little run to them. A billion dollar film franchise, a new Transformers Prime series on The Hub, and one of the coolest toy and action figure collections ever, because every figure is at least two toys in one! Now, High Moon Studios is working on a sequel to Transformers: War for Cybertron called Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, which is good news in and of itself. But better news still? This game has Dinobots.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, the sequel to 2010’s War For Cybertron video game has been announced by publisher Activison. The sequel takes place immediately after the conclusion of the first game, and treats fans to an experience they won’t want to miss with the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they fight for control of their dying planet, ultimately leading to their exodus from home documented in video game form.
