Transformers: War For Cybertron Exclusive Preview Transformers
Nice Quote for Optimus.
Gonna quote points of interest when I read this.
POINTS OF INTEREST:
Different types of Energon: Shards (Powering special moves), Cubes (Health), and unrefined Energon (Deadly).
Energon can be harvested form fallen foes.
Skywarp is OFFICIALLY confirmed.
Jets can "Hover" and "Boost" in both modes.
Jetfire has an English Accent.
Awesome. Poor Zeta Prime, did we even get to see him in action?
Maybe we kill him in the Cons story?
Yeah probably, Zeta Prime didn't exist until this game, am i right?
The freaky thing is the way that Autobot scene plays out is EXACTLY how I imagined it to be.
Jetfire having an english accent, Prime informing him of his death, the High Council mention, everything.
Oh. My. God.
can you play multiplayer at home?
actually, IDW comics first made reference to Zeta Prime
but still..nobody's seen him yet so
Yes. You must have an Xbox Live Gold Account to do so.
IDW first mention him in Spotlight Blurr. I'm curious to see what he looks like myself.
Did they just add more info? I don't recall seeing that Seeker info.
The Decepticon missions displayed showed a dynamic that could vary with your chosen character, in this case your chosen Seeker. Each of the three Seekers available has their own specialty. Skywarp is a scout, Thundercracker is a scientist, Starscream… well, despite all the whining Star scream always kicks ass. You can play the same level from different angles with each character with different abilities and weapons.
Each of these airborne engines of destruction has a “hover” and a “boost” mode. What’s cool is that the controls work the same in both robot and alternate mode so you can switch back and forth with minimal confusion. There are even specific strafe controls in hover mode allowing for unique attacks. It’s like having an indefinite double(infinite)jump in the sky.
In describing the flight controls, High Moons invoked the name of Crimson Skies, on of modern gaming’s most amazing airborne shooters. You’ll need that amazing and intuitive control. Cybertron is a labyrinth of towers, skyscrapers and other obstacles. It will take all your focus to navigate as a Seeker This is when your vehicle based special ability will come in handy. Every Transformer has one in addition to their robot modes. In the case of the Jet, he can barrel roll to fly between objects or dodge missile fire.
Kind of the point when it's on the home consoles.
They just added some pics.
Whether conquering the meddling Autobots, repelling the treacherous Decepticons, or containing the as yet unrevealed organic sub dwellers of Cybertron, strategic use of your myriad assets will be key. Especially when you find yourself up against foes the scale of the swarming missiles of Omega Supreme or Trypticon. Megatron, a tank, Breakdown, a car, and Soundwave, a truck (the tape deck didn’t work here) will have to square off against foes of this scale as a team, and Megatron is about the size of the ball of Omega’s foot.
Organic? That concept art we saw must be WFC.
PS. Its a great day for news
i am reluctant to belive anything because they said multiplayer on the rotf game before. but i am glad to hear it commanding youre own squad sounds like soooooooo much fun interaction with the cybertron landscapes this game is what i have dreamed of forever. i am pictureing accessing terminals blastmarks and such. that just makes for such a cool game enviorment. wow just wow
Yeah I love news days like this. I wonder how they fit into the story?
