Ahead of E3, an early copy of the next edition of Gameinformer has stolen the thunder of High Moon Studios big E3 reveal for Fall of Cybertron, Metroplex
. The big dude is shown in a screencap attached to the magazine's latest coverage of Fall of Cybertron and as you can see he is very much his original Generation 1 self, reimagined in the Cybertronian style of the War / Fall of Cybertron series. Metroplex is set to play a pivitol role in Transformers Fall of Cybertron, and while from what we have heard so far you may not get to control the titanic Autobot directly, when you play as Optimus Prime you will have the ability to mark targets for Metroplex to deal with. How Metroplex deals with them is half the fun - we have seen him eliminate targets using missile strikes or by closing in to smash them with his mighty fists, depending on the context.

But that is not the only news. The article around the image reveals that a fan-favorite element of Transformers War for Cybertron, the Escalation horde mode, is also set to return. Gameinformer reports that they have had a little hands-on time with the new mode, and will have some videos of it up in due course, so that is something to look forward to.
