    After studying all of the pictures and videos I've concluded we should have 14 missions all together, 7 autobot and 7 decepticon. Here is the list

    1 - Earth Optimus Prime
    2 - Cybertron Optimus Prime
    3 - Earth Bumblebee
    4 - Drift
    5 - Jetfire
    6 - Cybertron Side swipe
    7 - Earth Grimlock
    8 - Sharpshot or one of the other insecticide
    9 - Soundwave
    10 - Shockwave
    11 - Swindle
    12 - Vortex (Form Bruticus)
    13 - Megatron
    14 - Lockdown

    So what do you guys think?

    It's also possible ironhide might have his own mission

    In the behind the scenes video you see a door open with ironhide on the right and the dark spark is in the center of the room. So that might be an Ironhide mission. I'm thinking each mission has a central character, and if you play co - op you can play as a few other characters.

    What about G1 prime. We saw a trailer where a 'astroid' was falling in a G1 looking area with G1 prime watching the astroid fall.

    Could we be getting co-op missions, but this time around two characters instead of three?

    Think about it we've seen ironhide and sideswipe, starscreem and soundwave together on missions, others could have characters like bumblebee and drift paired

    (All speculation I haven't really got much evidence to suggest it but I can see a small link which could still be completely wrong)

    I think it's an unlock cut scene. I hope it goes something like this.

    Once the campaign credits are done, the cut scene rolls. G1 Optimus sees the Dark Spark (the 'asteroid' you mentioned) falling from the sky. The screen goes black, then a notification pops up.

    "You have unlocked G1 Optimus, playable in Escalation Mode!"

    It's confirmed he's only playable in Escalation mode, so it's probably that, though I'm unsure how exactly you'll unlock him.

    I forgot about G1 Optimus, where did you see that he's available only in escalation? I don't remember that

    G1 optimus might be playable in campaign too, after all G1 optimus and foc optimus were both playable in campaign in foc. All you had to do is push a button on character select screen on optimus level to change from foc to g1 skin. I would assume the same would be true for this game

    How do you know that? He's in the original trailer, he lands on some type of area in his ship. I'm sure he has his own mission

    I haven't analyzed the trailers, nor the screenshots like you have, but with the 40+ playable characters, I cannot imagine that the majority of said characters will be confined to Escalation. I'm hoping for and predict that we'll get a more WFC-oriented campaign setup, with multiple characters available for each level. That way, I believe replayability will be increased. And if the campaign is set to the fashion that you suggested, I think that the faction changes between levels will be more choppy (i.e. Autobot-Autobot-Decepticon).
