    After watching some live stream yesterday, I noticed there weren't as many character creator options in the final game as there where in preview videos.

    In the game there are only 5 additional character from what is in the demo, Perceptor, Wheeljack, Blast Off, Zeta Prime, and Ultra Magnus. Oddly enough no Barricade even though he is mentioned in the loading screens, and his head is now Dragstrip's.

    Now we know Hound is done cause he was in the G1 pre-order trailer and his chest was seen in a screenshot. For Titan beetle/Hardshell is missing and another option not shown. Scientist has Buzz and looks to be 3 other chest options not shown in vids, however one is sure to be Swoop. Scouts have a chest and arm pieces call Roadside(Barricade?) that is also missing.

    While it's cool to see that there seems to be at least, including Hound and Swoop, 7 other character to be added, it's disappointing to see that they are all done or near done.

    Now I understand how DLC dev gets done and some being done before ship is to be expected, but don't put it in the damn preview videos. The questions are now how long to we have to wait for them to release the DLC and will it be on-disk from day one?

    Just because you don't see them it doesn't mean they're DLC, they very well could be locked or hidden and revealed through campaign progression and achievements. The Dinobots and Insecticons are surely DLC but the others, we have no idea.

    I know we have seen parts from Hound in vids. So maybe we should wait until the game is actually out before we jump to any conclusions.

    Yeah, I didn't see the stream. Did the characters
    say DLC next to them or just a lock? They could be for beating the claign on each difficulty, reaching wave 15 in escalation, or maybe each class you max you get new parts for that class.

    Yes, there will be on disk DLC. Stop crying about it.

    The reason for on disk DLC is so that people who don't have that DLC will still be able to see your character. If say Zeta Prime were DLC that wasn't on the disk and you didn't buy it, that means your set up does not have access to that model. So when XXxxXXSnipahBoiXXxxXXZZZ445677463677661335644335464641646235653332096526767943364652657632134687694312679763232467464312.546461546878916457654317976464056464676164946134967654316576532464676234667445545555 walks around the corner using that character model, your system doesn't have anything to show and thus he is displayed as a generic looking character that everyone has.

    This isn't the only reason but there are very logical and valid reasons for on disk DLC.

    If this is just for on-disk dlc, I'm fine with it. I fully support High Moon and I'll gladly pay for dlc, i'll admit it. If it's any indication that they keep making games, I'll pay for dlc. And on disk dlc gives people with the dlc a little more interestingness, as opposed to say, forza, where you are always a standard black VW to people who don't have dlc, or mass effect, where people without dlc can't play with people with dlc.

    I'm surprised they've made Hound and Barricade locked/DLC, but the Dinobots and Insecticons are expected, didn't they say they were releasing them later...? Would be cool if they meant for Escalation.

    Either way, the people who are getting this information are the people who have leaked and downloaded a pirate copy of the game (Illegally) and as High Moon aren't expecting people to be playing the online Multiplayer right now, a lot of the assets could be wrong so maybe such characters aren't loading up YET.

    It was the same when Gears of War 3 was leaked, a lot of the cast of characters hadn't been uploaded to the servers to be usable.

    Yeah, i think it's the same for this case. We'll all have to wait until release day folks.

    While it DOES bother me we don't get those immediately, it still makes me happy just the thought we'll EVER get these parts.
    And it also puts Cities in Dust in my head.

    Actually your wrong, High Moon actually is expecting people to be playing now, people such as game reviewers. Also most of the streams are from people who just got the game early from a mom and pop game shop. There is nothing illegal with buying a game before street date.

    What I've seen is the final game. I'm not jumping to conclusions, I'm just talking about what I know as a fact.

    I don't really get how you can be disappointed that some DLC may or may not be almost complete now, they finished development on the game ages ago and spent the whole year advertising the game, of course they'd start work on DLC during that time.

    Of course there's nothing wrong with acquiring a game early like that (Well, actually it isn't... but it would be at the fault of the retailer for selling it before the street date, which can have their licenses to stock such items revoked.) it's not YOUR fault that you got it early that way.
    But like I said, I think the amount of people in that boat are outweighed by those who have pirated the game.

    Yes I understand how DLC dev works, but my issue is putting DLC in preview videos and giving the illusion that we are getting more content then we really are.

    GOW3 did something similar. They talked up all the weapon skin and didn't mention that you had to pay for most of them, until after someone got the game early and showed that you had to pay for most of them.

    What does the "NEW" stand for next to Ultra Magnus and WheelJack, are they DLC? How do you unlock them?

    Most likely means the person recently unlocked them and didn't look at them yet. A lot of games do that. "Hey look at me, you just earned me and you dont know I exist. Hey! Hey! Look at me!"

    That may be true, but that doesn't mean the content is COMPLETELY loaded to the servers.

    What Star Streaker said, and if I were to guess it's also cause those guys weren't in the demo.

    Someone in a stream said Magnus and WJ require Prime mode to unlock.
