As I said in the other thread. Hopefully it is a sequel to FOC. Think about it. At the end of FOC you were heading to earth. Now this game is taking place on earth. could be something like days of future past? where its connected to AOE and wraps up the FOC story line?
Icespark
Interesting. They seem to be advertising it as a crossover, but, is it more like a WFC/FOC is a prequel to the movies, or...

I'm not certain.

I think it will be fun though. I'll without a doubt purchase it!
Niv3k
When can I preorder it =)
BooyakaDragon
So they're combining the Cybertron and Movie continuity? I can dig it.
MasterZero
....EEEEEEEEEEE!

YES! I'm interested!
Allsorts
Whatever, I'm happy with this. A new TF game and more WFC/FOC aesthetic which is what I wanted. I'm only a little gutted that the trailer for this is a little less impressive than previous trailers, and I'm not keen on the movie designs replacing their previous- but time will tell what the plan is
Mechafire
So it's Fall of Cybertron with movie dudes thrown in.

Meh.
Wrecker217
How will this work? A crossover? A retcon? What is it?

I didn't click to that the first time I watched it. This should be interesting.

This looks like a typical Activision thing to do. Take the assets from the High Moon games, make some AoE assets, advertise this as a movie game and a sequel to FoC. I love the High Moon games, so I'll probably end up getting this just for the single player (assuming it has any other mode), but everything about this just screams lazy cash-in.
MasterZero
Honestly, I didn't even like WFC when it came out. Thought it was overblown. But the fact that its crossing over with the movies, which I DO love, makes me a happy little boy.
Grimlockimus
Huh...for a crossover game trailer you really don't see any of the FOC or AoE characters interacting or even on the same screen as each other. Plus all the backgrounds appear to be reused levels (in FOC at least)

The only "cross over" elements I'm seeing are Optimus and Bumblebee from AoE using FOC guns and in a brief moment at the end with Grimlock's bite you can see the Energon Cube and Ammo Clip from FOC as well.

Just gonna make a wild prediction here, but I think this may end up being a re-release of Fall of Cybertron that can be played on the next gen consoles and it will include extra characters from AoE that can be used in multiplayer.

Or

It's an AoE story game and the multiplayer is a copy paste from FOC with added AoE characters, hence the clashing of the two universes.
Megastar
I'm thinking this is a sequel to WFC/FOC, but with possible DLC movie design skins.

Yeah kinda feels that way doesnt it

I kinda feel like they would do a whole split campaign thing. Play as the FOC guys in one, AOE guys in another [thus living up to the whole Protect/Destroy thing?]

i dunno. im not so on board with this. Looks lazily thrown together and there's no proper developer behind this at all. [Just "Hasbro Games, whatever that is.] A cheap way to to do both a FOC sequel and a new movie tie-in game without having to develop two seperate games.

God this looks awful. I hope this is being made by the same team that made the DotM game and that WFC3 will be announced at E3 this year or next...

If the multiplayer is as fun as FOC was then I'll be happy. Though my initial thought after hearing it'd be a crossover game is I reeeeeeally hope they do the most fun thing you could do in this situation and have multiplayer be FOC vs Movieverse instead of the usual Autobots vs Decepticons.

Hated everything about FOC and DOTM, so I'm not digging this.

I doubt they'd rename the game if it's just an HD makeover. It'd probably be called "X Edition" at most.

Kinda seems like it's going to be a campaign that alternates between universes and their respective stories.

This is WFC3. Their combining the Cybertron universe with the movie universe. This game will wrap up the FOC storyline while leading into AOE.

Wrong URL in the forum front. Just letting you guys know.

Xbox One yesssssss

Looks like old footage from Bayformers and FOC games.

Hope it's fake!

No they are not. These universes are separate. They are crossing over, not combining. Movie continuity is completely separate from the Aligned continuity.
ComfyDeathshot
I am excited, but it looks completely copied, not even any new weapons in this trailer.
Biotoakid
what
UltraPrimus56
Cautiously excited for this, and it'll be interesting to see how the movieverse designs mingle with the clunky/bloated Cybertron designs. Gameplay is what I'm really interested in. The graphics are pretty damn good also. Same gameplay as FOC it seems like, but the AOE TFs may have slightly different gameplay

Lol it's not fake.

Going through the black hole (which I recall was referred to by Ratchet as being unstable and not knowing what will happen when passed through) must have sent them to a parallel Earth. It's combining a movie game and FOC sequel into one sexy game! I hoped High Moon wouldn't be making a new game but, judging from all the assets used from the last game, it must be them. Still, they weren't credited at all so this might just be a cheap movie tie-in that's serving a sequel to FOC sadly... As long as this has been in development for 2 years though, I don't care.

Damn, I wish I was the one to post this, it was on IGN:

This is really really confusing. It looks quite shit too

Show me your source that EXPLICITLY states that. Otherwise, stop presenting your interpretation as fact.

HMS isn't developing it... bit weary about that bit... I mean it could be just Activision/Hasbro taking advantage of the assets, throwing remnants of that universe (and Engine) to push a cash grab of a tie-in for the Movie...

It'll no doubt work... because the game was entertaining/successful enough... even if it's just rehashed with added Movieverse elements...

It's a crossover, so doubtful. This is basically at best one of those type of deals where you take two franchises and have something crazy happen to fuel hype/attention for both... or in this case one... since it's all Transformers (but of two universes).

Would make the movieverse an even more confusing mess... no offense to the games... but it would.

As is, WfC/FoC is supposed to be part of the Aligned Continuity, which Prime is also supposed to be part of... and the two storylines and design elements have some pretty serious disparities that make this not so feasible... and yet Hasbro insists they're the same Universe so... last thing you need is to shoehorn the movies into it.

This should be fun!

This is what I expect as well. The fact that we saw no new assets (at least Cybertron wise. Don't care about the movie designs enough to recognize them) supports this theory.

So is it just me or was that lockdown stepping off the ship and then fighting Optimus, and for some reason we're back on Cybertron, but the game looks good but I'm still curious as to why the two universes are coming together
Ra88
I really...REALLY hope that this isn't considered an actual sequel to FOC and that it's just something like Super Smash Bros, or that upcoming Blizzard game with all the franchises thrown together. A fun multiplayer-driven game with multiple characters and a cheesy, simple singleplayer. If not...Ugh.

Anyone else excited over a Sideswipe level?

Yep, I buy the WFC games and steer clear of the movie tie-ins
the botmaster74
This is EPIC! Seeing FOC characters again.....it's like seeing an old friend who's been away for a while. Well, I'm sufficiently PUMPED, even more cuz this is coming out for the 360!
Wazdakka
I'm very excited, but it kind of looks like they are just taking Fall of Cybertron and bolting it to movie stuff.

I'm fine with it.
Allsorts
My only concern is I don't want the WFC/FOC to be completely ignored in favour of promoting AOE. I'm all for an AOE game but I'd far rather just have my Cybertron sequel.

If it's merely a skin choice, I can probably deal with that but please don't make this too complicated and half assed, just to promote a film
