    This is reportedly from the Game Informer magazine feature due out soon (or is it out already?)..
    It might have all be mentioned earlier but maybe something new or some more detail than I haven't read so far..

    Gaming Everything » Blog Archive » First Transformers: Fall of Cybertron details

    I love the sound of this bit..
    - Last safe haven of Autobot City has been reached
    - Plan to launch into space aboard the newly built Ark spacecraft is threatened
    - Prime goes to the frontline with his rifle to help sturn the tide
    - Optimus Prime is bulkier/more powerful than in War for Cybertron
    - He has new arrmor, his transformation looks warlike and agressive
    - Pauses to sometimes call down a fiery artillery strike to destroy a whole squad of enemies
    - Eventually reaches a cyber cannon that takes down enemy tanks and dropships
    - A strange summoning draws Prime away from the batttle and into the depths of the city
    - He emerges into a glowing inner chamber
    - Huge metal walls begin to shift outside
    - Chasms open up in the ground, Decepticons tumble, screaming to their doom
    - Skyscraper-sized robot rises to the tower
    - He opens his hand (Prime looks tiny in his palm)
    - “Metroplex heeds the call of the last Prime. Awaiting your orders.”
    - Metroplex is a city that transforms into a big robot
    - 2-3 times the size of Omega Supreme in War for Cybertron

    A lot of this stuff sounds pretty awesome. It's actually a sequel and not a WFC with a few minor changes. I am disappointed they dropped co-op campaign, though.

    That's what I don't understand, when was co-op campaign ever something the fans didn't like? It helped you get a feel for how Multiplayer would be, and was one hell of a good time with your friends.

    Co-op won't be such a big deal to me, just as long as they keep Escalation. That's where the real re-playability is.

    Escalation is part of Co-op play...

    Escalation is it's own separate game type. We don't call Multiplayer Co-op, we call it, well, Multiplayer.

    I don't think they dropped it because it was disliked. They probably had to "make room" for everything else they wanted to do and co-op campaign got put near the bottom of the list. I think Escalation will still be there - it adds to the replay value, seemed to be a fan favorite, and is still active on WFC (at least last time I checked)

    I wonder if they'll drop most of the extra multiplayer modes that aren't team deathmatch, deathmatch, or conquest. The other modes didn't seem to be too popular (I'm sure they were fun if you could ever find someone to play them with)

    They dropped co-op campaign. I'd eat a protoform if they dropped Escalation when that is where a lot of WFC's action came from.

    They specifically state in the GI article that they have Escalation and Multiplayer, just not co-op campaign anymore..That pisses me off because I would love to play this with my nephew when he comes over and TF's should totally have at least a couch co-op experience...

    I totally agree with this one, except then there would be no good way for them to switch gund from primary to secondary quickly or without materializing a gun out of thin air...I guess they could have it strapped on their backs or something...But yeah, WFC surprised me about the Null Ray...

    Like everyone else, it most likely transformers. And who knows, maybe this'll be the story that explains why he has a gun hand.

    so what I wanna know is, are they going to spend more on the story mode stuff, or end up wasting disc space again on a massive heap of deathmatch filler?


    *edit* and looking back even one page tells me that they dropped the only worthwhile multiplayer but are still gonna waste disc space on deathmatch filler.

    man. what is with companies these days and not being able to do better than OMG DEATHMATCH DEATHMATCH DEATHMATCH OH HERE'S A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT DEATHMATCH for multiplayer modes?

    do they honestly think that absolutely everyone just LOVES to "play" with a wide array of sore losers who are so prone to d/cing just in time to try to shield their precious win/loss ratio that it's all but impossible to find an accurate assessment of ability?

    I can't speak for everyone but I know I'd rather not be limited to "slugfest with e-peen brats who think it's the height of witty banter to question the size of their opponent's genitalia and will attempt anything to avoid being shown to have not won a given game at any point" when looking to involve others in a game.'

    yes. I am a bitter, bitter man.

    god grimlock's head is HORRIBLE

    i swear, the new designs they have done look quite good, grimlock expecially has an AWESOME body design

    but all the new heads SUCK!!!

    they need to scrap that grimlock head, it is beyond horrible

    they better fix the connection issues of the game for FoC, if they don't i'm just gonna beat campain and never play again

    seriously, highmoon has never even ACKNOWLEDGED that issue, yet it is the main thing that killed the multiplayer market for the game

    It looks like another potential Renderform release.

    Nice weapons, but why the frag have they given Cliffjumper his Prime head? The toy's face would have fit this art style much better.

    Jazz looks awesome. And wow, WFC Kickback! :)  That better gets a toy...
