    Here's a list I'll update when we find out all of the playable characters, including Multiplayer ones. The list is for the main consoles only, not handhelds.

    Autobots:

    Optimus
    Bumblebee
    Ratchet
    Silverbolt
    Air Raid
    Jetfire
    Warpath
    Ironhide
    Sideswipe
    Arcee?*
    Jazz (Escalation)

    Decepticons:

    Megatron
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Skywarp
    Thundercracker
    Breakdown
    Barricade
    Brawl
    Slipstream?*
    Shockwave (Escalation)
    Demolisher (Escalation)

    * - Announced unofficially

    EDIT: Added Thrust, still not sure whether he is an escalation exclusive or actually part of the campaign. I have bets on escalation. Why would there be four jets in the Decepticon campaign when there's only probably one or two levels with jets and the seekers take up the 3 places.

    post if there are other characters I've missed, and I'm not putting Grimlock yet, he hasn't been annonced and I'm not convinced.

    EDIT #2: Added Arcee and Slipstream, I'm not sure where they are playable but we know they are, and we don't know their official names.

    Brawl, Silverbolt and Jetfire have all been confirmed in video and live interviews, as well as videos and photos. Yes, their bios aren’t up, but they’ve been announced.

    Thundercracker is shown for a fleating second in the opening movie; however, he is a playable character, but as you said, he hasn’t been announced as such yet.

    Sideswipe and one another have yet to receive official confirmation, be it pictures or dropped names.

    I found it some time ago. I can't remember where, but where there's Thrust, surely Dirge and Ramjet are sure to follow! I hope they aren't store exclusives, but I'm starting to feel that's the case :(

    I'm not even sure why they put Grimlock in this and War for Cybertron....how is he there on Cybertron? Didn't Wheeljack build him on Earth after seeing Dinosaur skeletons?

    Depends on the continuity. In War Within, the old Marvel comics or the IDW universe he's from cybertron like the others, and the inclusion of elements like Zeta Prime shows WfC's not sticking to the cartoon.

    You guys have to remember that this isnt G1 or Armada or anything, it's a new take on the continuity of Cybertron' s War, so any new move they pull =/= retcon.

    It's followed the continuity pretty closely so far. At present, the only big difference is the addition of a handful of characters.

    Actually, we don't know anything about how closely it follows the G1 continuity, so far we only have very broad facts about the plot. And Which G1 continuity? As pointed out earlier there are several and it seems to borrow from several. For example unlike the cartoon continuity Optimus isn't Orion Pax before being rebuilt as Optimus Prime, just an Autobot named Optimus who takes charge of things when no one else seems to. That brings him closer to the Marvel or IDW Optimus, but you can bet it's not gonna be quite it either.

    ---Edited to hide my shame since my brilliant deduction about Thrust's pic was clearly pointed out earlier.

    I made both of those for an avatar on the Allspark boards. He's not in the game. I made it because he's my favorite seeker.
