A couple of batches of new Fall of Cybertron news for you today as we get closer and closer to the release date for the PS3/360/PC game. First off, it's been confirmed (apparently for the second time, as stated in the thread) that a demo for Fall of Cybertron will be coming out before the game will be released. It is unknown at this time what platforms the demo will be released on.

Secondly, the Fall of Cybertron website has been updated with many new screenshots from the upcoming game- including some nice shots of Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, Cliffjumper, Grimlock, Swindle and Bumblebee. Read the full story for all of the images.

Finally, MTV Multiplayer has posted a wrap-up of the SDCC 2012 Fall of Cybertron panel with the game's voice actors. To read up their report, check out their blog post over here.

Very nice.

I like how Megatron doesn't look fat here.

Yes, but we don't know if it's coming out for any other console, hence my wording on the front page.

I hope participating in the demo gives you something special for the retail version like Gears of War and Battlefield.

Is it just me but it looks like Megatron's stomach is a ghost in pain...

I dislike how Megatron's arm becomes his cannon in that screenshot. Looked far better in WFC.

How come when I point that out everyone jumps on me saying it's impossible that it's PSN-only?

Awesome screenshots!
Deonasis
Megatrons face looks way too tiny.

Yeah, Megatron needs to have a cannon hanging off his arm -not have his arm become the cannon.
Bountyan
That screenshot almost makes me not hate the Megatron design.

Almost.

I really hope this is saying Swindle is playable.
Sinnertwin
Pretty sure he is.

I wanna hear what he SAYS when you're playing as him.
shroobmaster
Couldn't even tell that was Swindle first sight. Really easy they had given him a squared head shape more like the TFA interpretation and the G1 animation model.

Megatron is horrible his whole torso reminds me of oldass Star Fox for SNES enemies.
Noideaforaname
Swindle's pic is all tan.
Bumblebee's is all yellow.
Cliffjumper's is all red.
Megatron's is all gray.

Starscream's, on the other hand, is actually pretty colorful and thus a lot more interesting.

it does. its probably just the perspective of the shot on that image.
Chaos Muffin
Starscream's head looks like a big headed dwarf Kup head with a helmet.

Suprised the demo's not out yet considering how much they enjoy showcasing their work.
Unless they're too busy doing interviews.

Isn't this the first time we've seen Perceptor in FOC?

The "landscape" pix are really nice, lots of details..all the bot pics look great too.

wow it is just a few days away.

No. It is definitely not. I've seen other robots with their arm turned into that EXACT cannon.

NO NO NOOOOO!
I love almost everything that HM has done with their 2 non-movie Transformers games. But one of the things that I have repeatedly said that I don't like is the movie/Prime style where the TFs arms turn into their guns. Now on the 1st game and in ALL of the trailers for the 2nd game Megatron's fusion cannon was mounted to his arm, like it should be. But in this pic his arm has transformed into the fusion cannon, please tell me that it is not so. Please tell me that this was some sort of early version pic of a multiplayer pic using the Megatron chassis or a screw up or something dammit. MEGATRON'S FUSION CANNON IS MOUNTED ON HIS ARM!!! MEGATRON'S ARM DOES NOT BECOME A FUSION CANNON!!! AAAAGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

Other than that great pics.

I'm legitimately sorry that it bothers you so much, and it irked me too, but I can get past it.

I must agree. I don't like the arms turning into guns either--I wish HMS would really incorporated hand held guns too. Yeah, I know G1 had characters changing their hands into this or that, but hand held guns were and still are equally cool. Handheld guns would help with the arm proportions of several characters too.

Anyway here are some other pics of Megatron with his cannon on his arm:





However, the Escalation mode demo played by Gameinformer's Matt Miller shows us Megatron in action, and his arms were Transforming left and right. I wonder if his arm look unchanged if you use just his fusion cannon...
Silverwing
I must say I really like all the designs in Fall of Cybertron. But I seem to be a minority... ^^' I loved Megatron and Optimus from the start. That may be because I am easily pleased. Oh well...
DecepticonSpike
I'm not liking Cliffjumper's TFP head on that body. I gguess I'm just too used to the figure.
Meta777
Gorgeous screenshots; so bright and colourful. Megatron amuses with how bright and silvery it is. Wouldn't expect from the harvester of Dark Energon XD

Optimus' truck mode looks freaking awesome cruising along. I can't wait to mash Decepticons with the bumper

I disagree. The headscuplt looks so much better than the G1 head.
Prime Jetscream
I hate how anyone with a modified body or just completely new characters have huge chins save for those without mouths.
Like, not just for being huge chins, but because they're big flat panels. It's ugly and weird.
I also hate all the girly lips, like on Bumblebee or Cliffjumper.
Bountyan
The chins don't bother me so much as how every character suddenly became obese. Just look at this:



It doesn't look right. It's like his legs are made out of marshmallows.
Sinnertwin
It's a subtle nod to the fans

Man, Megatron's concept art is so much cooler than the actual model. What happened? I mean, he looks like his stomach is so fat it has cut out the middle man and now just has it's own mouth.

I definitely miss these proportions and colors

SPLIT LIP
For some reason the characters never look as good as their concept art.
shroobmaster
I just never thought I would see the day somebody made robots uglier and sillier than Dreamwave.

I mean I'm still going to mock Dreamwave since Pat Lee was more than a iffy artist he was a legit scumbag thief but that Onslaught right there bothers me visually something real I think I'll go stare at a white all for some time.
SPLIT LIP
Oh shit, I think you just hit upon why I don't like the game models.

It has nothing to do with the concept art or the designs themselves. They're all modeled like Dreamwave robots. The rounded proportions, giant, puffy hands and the pose like they're too fat for their own skeleton. But the concept art and toylines have them sleek, angular and reasonably proportioned.

My God.
shroobmaster
I've been thinking they looked like Dreamwave from the first pic of WFC Optimus we got where his head was so small he looked like a tiny guy in a big robo suit Megaman X style, but WFC never quite reached such.... extreme shit as FoC is doing. That Megatron up there is simply ridiculous I cannot imagine him ever walking around without tripping and rolling down the battlefield like a barrel.
SPLIT LIP
No, like a snowball. He starts hitting Decepticons and eventually is just a big fat Decepti-ball.

I'm pretty sure that's how Grand Galvatron came into being.

Like, they literally can't move without clipping through themselves. wat
Transformed
Save for the stupid Autobot symbol worked into his back and red cheeks, Bumblebee looks pretty good.

At least Starscream looks better than this:



I hope HMS will some stop building their characters with western superhero frames, as the overly muscular looks usually results in very bloated Cybertronians.
shroobmaster
The Grimlock level would be much more fun if the dinosaur mode was used to roll the decepti-ball around like a Katamari collecting more and more enemies, yes.

Except that's not at all western superhero. Western superheroes are typically muscular yet athletic and, well, heroic in proportions.

Unless DC's new flagship character is the StayPuft Marshmellow Man...

New Optimus and Megatron aside, several of the new characters draw up in concept art look very much like superheros, especially the Dinobots.

These designs wouldn't bother me so much if HMS added a bit more variety.

What I liked about G1 designs has been overlooked and redesigned into cooler and sleeker robotic designs Whatever happened to chubby Bumblebee? I know he always succeeded in the end, but this Bumblebee is much like the live action one: total bad ass. I miss the-little-engine-that-could-Bumblebee that stumbled along the way.

the Autobots had a few plump mainstays. I liked that. We all can't be Mr. Universe. ...FOC Optimus and Megatron are a bit extreme. They remind me a little too much of Dragon Ball Z's Saiya-jin's "Super" transformations: too big to be effective.

Enough already,,, where's the game!!! I want Chistmas NOW!

(Also does BB/CJ's gun remind anyone else of Makeshift (2003) - Mini-Con - www.tfu.info)
