    I know that with the lack of info nobody could give me a clear answer, but I've been through detailed search and couldn't find anything. OK, so if the game combines to universes (FOC and AOE) will there be separate singleplayer following only AOE and only crossover in multiplayer?

    No, from the sounds of it the single-player story is a "universes collide"-type crossover between the Aligned and movie continuities, revolving around the titular Dark Spark.

    If you say so.

    For me, at least, the crossover element is the most interesting part of this game, since I'm kind of apathetic towards both the movie and ____ of Cybertron franchises, and the style of gameplay pioneered by High Moon (ROTF game forever, yo).

    Yeah, I agree ROTF is the best no doubt but I'd really hoped they would add normal singleplayer (just AOE)

    Yeah I'm completely confused as to how this game is a sequel to Fall of Cybertorn, but also happens in-continuity with the next movie. What the heck are they doing? lol

    The titular Dark Spark is some sort of magical evil thingmabob that links the two universes.

    The Aligned universe stuff appears to be before/during FOC, whilst the movie stuff is reportedly during/after AOE.

    They have stated it's a sequel to FOC, but most of the cybertron gameplay takes place after chaperter 11 of FOC, right before the ARK takes off. I'm sure when we get to teh Earth missions will will find out what happened after FOC in either cut scenes or audio logs scattered around like in FOC. I think it was very smart of them to combine the cybertron series with the movies, you kill 2 birds with one stone, without the movie we never would have gotten a sequel to FOC

    I think the ending of FOC is related to how there is a crossover. Maybe the ark made it to earth and they changed vehicles? I guess we got to wait and see!

    We already know for certain that it's a multiversal crossover thing, not just "WFC/FOC were actually in movie continuity lol".

    Didn't the Ark take off at the end of War for Cybertron? Then they sqeezed the events of Fall of Cybertron into the space between the last chapter of WfC, and the cutscene showing the Ark taking off. And NOW they're going to sqeeze ANOTHER game in there? Yeesh. Just let them get off Cybertron already.
