    Hi everyone,

    Gamestop.com just updated their pre-order page for War for Cybertron. That isn't what's new though, instead, it seems that they've confirmed that Shockwave will be a playable character......in multiplayer mode anyway.

    Upon purchasing the game from Gamestop, Gamestop will either send out or give the purchaser a code to unlock Shockwave (depending on if the game was ordered from the internet, or purchased in stores).

    It's not specified whether players will need to download Shockwave from their game system's server, or if he's already on the disc, and that the code simply unlocks him.

    Shockwave is playable only in the Escalation mode of Multiplayer, and it's not specified whether they're speaking of online, or offline multiplayer either.

    Here's a link:

    That sounds pretty cool! Makes me interested enough to want to preorder the game.

    I'm wondering though, what is Shockwave going to look like in the game?

    I probably won't preorder because the code will be online at some point without needing a preordered game.

    That's great news! I love Shockwave and can't wait to see his WFC design.

    I'll wait to get the game until I hear a lot of good feedback, good online support, no lag etc. Shockwave would be cool to unlock.

    Awesome, although I'm a bit disappointed that he's mp-only AND in only one game mode at that. However, I'm excited to see what he looks like; Shockwave has always been one of my favorite characters and designs.

    Seriously? I have to go to Gamestop if I want to play as Shockwave? I refuse to shop there.

    Oh well. It's only in one gameplay mode, so I don't think I'll miss too much.

    It was only... logical that Shockwave would find some way to be in this game. :D

    I wouldn't get your hopes up.

    Now a days the codes aren't put into the game itself. They're download codes. All random. So one code isn't gonna work for everyone.

    I;m thinking that they would use his original G1 form because he never had an Earth form in G1.

    That's really cool, but when I pre-ordered Transformers Revenge of the Fallen, I didn't get a keychain or a code for Gold Optimus Prime. I had to get it from some guy on the Internet :/ I hope they'll be more organized at my Gamestop here.

    Store content exclusive pre-orders suck! Buyers away from such stores always get screwed by either not having the chance to have the exclusive character/content or having to pay gray market prices to get them :( 

    Say content because we are, after all, talking about the game actually having a difference from others. I don't mind extra items and what not, non-gaming related, exclusives because these things have little or nothing to do with the actual gaming experience. Big thumbs down if this exclusive doesn't show up elsewhere or for free later :'(

    PS: Wish they had a picture of Shockwave. I would love to see his new look.

    this is rediculous. I can deal with an extra weapon or other color schemes being preorder extras, but a whole extra major character? thats bs. I'll probably still buy the game if it gets good reviews and I'll probably preorder it to get shockwave, but this kind of crap really turns me off
