    Apparently Grimlocks playstyle is very unique, so he may be story only - I don't think the games mechanics are too inflexible as to disallow more uniqueness between characters though, perhaps all characters from the possible 'Beast' class will focus on melee based combat?

    The only problem is the autobot beast-class will probably have more then the decepticons well unless they include insect transformers like blackarachnea from animated not likely though (sorry f I mispelled)

    But I would love beast-class

    Well, evidently the three Insecticons are present in the game.

    Yes but the description said there are waves of clones, and the first game featured spiders, so I reckon the Insecticons might be featured as generic enemies rather than playable individual characters.

    True. Though, the fact that they have both robot and bug modes puts them on the same level as the drones from WFC.

    That is, fully rigged and modeled, just not playable. :lol

    Thats fine by me, vast swarms of clones were what the Insecticons were all about in G1, and if they want to include playable insectoid Decepticons then Scorponok and Tarantulas are far more interesting characters.

    WfC already had those dark energon spiders, so Insecticon drones make sense.

    I really hope beast-modes make up a new class, though. Sounds like they've put enough thought into Grimlock's mechanics that they'd want to make the most of it in multiplayer. That, and the fact that it sounds like the developers are trying to make the gameplay branch out from the Gears of War (was it GoW, or something else? I'm not up on the genre beyond TFs) engine WfC's based on make me hope we get the kind of gameplay variety a beast class could bring.

    Maybe it'll be only the three "original" Dinobots vs the Insecticons. Maybe we'll even get some of the Deluxe Insecticons to make a guest appearance in DLC along with Snarl and Swoop, though I doubt it.

    I know its a LONG shot, but I'm really hoping that the Predacons can feature aswell. A problem with beast modes is that unlike wheeled vehicles they need to be animated in a certain way - despite being from the same class, a T-Rex doesn't move like a Triceratops for example. Still,Grimlock could have his own animations (he's an iconic enough character to warrant such treatment), Razorclaw and Rampage could share the same basic model, Slag/Sludge/Snarl/Tantrum/Headstrong all turn into big lumbering beasts and wouldn't need seperate animations, and finally Swoop and Divebomb could also be done together (although thats assuming they'd consider flying beasts too).

    Ok so its alot of work for the design team but DAMN how awesome it would be.

    Campaign only. The only one revealed is Grimlock, and if he is the ONLY one in the game, probably just campaign. If there are more beasts in the game, perhaps they will make a new multiplayer class, but I'm not sure.

    I can honestly see this happening. Judging by descriptions of Grimlock's gameplay, beasts could be like a super-heavy class; slow to transform and slow to move with only melee attacks for the most part, but very strong and hard to kill.

    Autobots would get the three original Dinobots, and the cons could get 3/5 of Predaking.

    That makes sense. By not going overboard with character inclusions, you can realistically include more new ideas so long as they're used sparingly (and you can always expand upon those ideas in the next game if they prove successful). So then you could have:

    Gestalts: Defensor and Bruticus
    Beasts: Grimlock/Slag/Sludge and Razorclaw/Rampage/Headstrong
    Triple Changers?: Springer and Blitzwing

    From the sounds of it, it looks like they are going to the DOTM campaign model of 'use a Transformers unique abilities'. Unfortunately, this would also mean no co-op campaign, which would be really disappointing.

    Nah, I wouldn't write off the co-op campaign just yet. DOTM was a movie tie-in and under extreme time constraints. This game's still over a year out. Almost anything could still happen.

    Bosses and new class I think. If we get all of them I wonder how big they will be..I'm pleased the leaked info mentions they are bigger than the other classes as thats how it should be. In the first one, Jetfire was made into a normal-sized bot which I was a bit disappointed with.

    Grimlock gets his own level!!!

    I just watched the tour of High Moon Studios over at Gameinformer.com and the studio president said "these are the guys responsible for the Grimlock level".

    Although I can't figure out how it will be done, I do think the Dinobots will be a new class. I would like to see 2 versions of the Dinobots. One with a Cybertronian vehicle form and another version (maybe after a visit or scan of Earth) in dinosaur form. Probiblely not to happen, but WHO CARES GRIMLOCK IS IN THE GAME.

    Is this surveying asking what we WANT or what we EXPECT?

    I diffenately think Slag,Tantrum, and Headstrong could share animations. But I don't think the same animations would work for a Brontosaurus and a Stegosaurus that works for a Triceratops/rhino/bull. But then again I know nothing about game animation, I'm just looking at how the animals move.

    Slag, Tantrum, and Headstrong should have ram attack similar to what the leader class had in WFC.
