    Just ignore the time listed on my original post. I've updated here. Looks like this may finally air on X-Play Tuesday, May 4th @ 6:30 PM (EST).

    The Thursday, April 29th edition of G4's X-Play mentioned that the next day's show will include a "hands-on" preview of the gameplay for Transformers: War for Cybertron. A brief teaser clip showed what appeared to be Jazz, Bumblebee and Shockwave.

    Cool. I can't wait for this to go online :)  I hope they show escalation mode play and levels we haven't seen yet.

    For anyone who misses this, X-Play usually repeats the following day at 1PM EST. But since it doesn't air on weekends, that should fall on Monday, May 3rd.

    I think it's also likely, as Transformed mentioned, that G4 will make it available online as well. (And it's inevitable that someone will dump in on YouTube too.)

    :wtf:  G4? This is a rerun!

    [off to complain on the G4 forums]

    [added later]

    Great, it's been so long since I was active on their forum that it won't let me sign in.

    Surely the 1:00 PM showing wasn't the new episode. It's usually the evening ep that's new.

    I'm really sorry about this guys. Maybe I wasn't paying close enough attention during Thursday's "Halo Reach" feature (which was a new ep) and they said "next week" in the teaser?

    I hope to have an answer soon.

    Okay, let's try this one more time. Monday's episode (which I just watched a repeat of Tuesday afternoon) was new and they showed the same teaser for their hands-on preview and they also said it was "Coming Up" on X-Play.

    I don't know why their webmaster is dragging his/her feet, because they usually are good about listing show details for the next episode on the schedule.

    So I don't have 100% confirmation that the Tuesday, May 4th airing @ 6:30 PM (EST) will include the game preview. However, G4's TV schedule shows that the 6:30 PM episode is a "premiere" so I'm optimistic that it will air finally.

    Either way, it's inevitable that they'll post the preview on their video page and I believe those are posted every Thursday.

    So fingers crossed that we'll get to see it Tuesday evening.

    I can provide some clarity on the delay. X-Play was at the same event recently that TFW also attended and was attended by at least one other TF website. There is an embargo that was originally last week, then was moved to some unspecified point this week. We have yet to know when that is. I assume X-Play keeps backing that up until the embargo is lifted.

    More than likely, most of the info from the event should be on the web from various sites in attendance before X-Play airs the episode later that day. However, that depends on the embargo lift time and if X-Play has some sort of exclusive early rights.

    Hm, I didn't know that classes in multi were tied to vehicle types. Not sure if I'm thrilled with that... but otherwise everything seems good.

    Matt Tieger never fails to impress me. He speaks very eloquently and seems to have a real love for the franchise.

    Gameplay looks very promising. At times the framerate appears to dip quite low, but maybe it's just the demo video they're showing.
