    The Facebook Page just posted this. Not sure if it's new, because they always repost. But I had never seen it.
    Reminds me of the place Prime and Sentinal found in Animated (With Elita). The look of it leads me to believe that the Insecticon section of the game might be more Survival Horror like, than simply fighting other decepticons, and they might be depicted more like Xenomorphs or something terrible to fight.

    It's a shame they made the Insecticons a swarm of Drones rather then the usual 3 characters.

    Still, awesome looking art.

    Maybe they'll do both, like the cartoon. Where there are three talking ones, but they have an army of clones.

    Something must have "laid" all those "eggs", an Insectiqueen maybe?

    One of the reports of the Grimlock gameplay mentioned Shrapnel who is now called something else that escapes me at the moment.

    I'm 100% certain in a video interview they gave away a heavy but subtle hint that we have not seen the named insecticons yet.

    I'll stand by that hint but if it ends up not being true then by all means quote this on release and tell me I was wrong lol.

    "edit" Didn't read the Agentknifes post until after I wrote this, So atleast we will see atleast 1. Maybe all 3 but like he said probably with a different name.

    I'm a fan of the IDW approach, there were a bunch in a "Swarm", and only a handful of successes (the famous Insecticon-Three).

    I'd like it if the three were among the few successes, along with Airachnid.

    Thanks, Sinnertwin has already said this but Shrapnel will be called Sharpshot. A trademark thing I think, rather than a Slag is now Slug type of thing.

    I think you'll find that's actually a screenshot of the actual game.

    And now we get yet another reason to believe the Cybertron-Exodus saga is in the same continuity as TFP. End of

    This.

    I don't know if Airachnid will be in this game, but here's hoping. It would be cool to see her as a boss.
