    In the G1 canon, especially the cartoon, Cybertron is revealed to have a night/day cycle - although it is usually depicted as night time there, several episodes (War Dawn comes to mind) show that at least some of the time Cybertron experiences sunlight.

    I have seen a couple of stills with a somewhat golden hue to the lighting. My question is, do you think we'll be seeing what could be described as "daytime" levels?

    Honestly, I don't think there's any way we'll get "daytime" levels.

    I don't recall Cybertron orbiting a sun at any point, unless it get's some light as it passes close to a system?

    Actually, since this takes place DURING the war where Cybertron was knocked out of orbit around Alpha Centarui, so we MIGHT see daytime.

    We've seen colorful gaseous clouds, and starry skies high above Cybertron during several teaser trailers, especially during the Trypticon boss fight. Other trailers and videos/pictures worked into interviews have shown us an array of skylines from sunlight and cloudy sky with heavy rain, so I think we’re going to see a lot.

    Well first off its not G1, it's simply influenced by it. Most of the representations in the various series of Cybertron depict it as a world without much of a day night cycle. Cybertron/Galaxy Force and Beast Machines (before reformatting) come to mind.

    In a video? Or pictures? I don't recall anything like that at all.

    We might have a dusk or dawn level with there being a golden hue to the horizon, but I don't think we'll have any real daytime levels.

    I've seen a few light atmospheres in the videos we've seen, but so far it looks like most of he game will be dark.

    Go back and watch the trailer just released, the E3 one. Don't watch the action. Watch the background. In that clip alone you'll see the sky with all sorts of hues. However, going back and looking at every video we've seen since December to now, you'll see footage not in this video that shows different skylines.

    The game isn't completely dark; Cybertron has lights. However the darkness adds to one of High Moon's gimmicks, lights on the Cybertronians, they glow in the dark;)  I honestly don't see what the fuss is all about, as the game is full of fluorescent light, other artificial light, sunlight, and other things in space and Cybertron.

    Considering that it's been confirmed as being the canon prequel for the G-1 series, it is G-1.

    It's supposed to be influenced by Gears of War, and that is mostly night-time levels.

    This response, IMO, proves that some people here are utterly hung up on the "not G1" issue.

    First you tell me unequivocally that the game isn't G1, then you start talking "Cybertron/Galaxy force and Beast Machines". It isn't those for sure!

    I may be wrong, but whenever I see Cybertron from any era, be it the 80's, now or in between, it's dark. It makes sense to me that this game would be the same way. I do not think we'll be seeing any daytime levels unless there's immense fan craving for that aspect in some DLC. Either way, not a big deal to me personally. I'm as excited as ever for the game as it is coming right out of the box.
