Before E3 there were rumors of a new Transformers game. Now we have confirmation of this game. Activision teamed up with development studio Platinum Games Inc. Based on Hasbro’s colossal entertainment franchise, Transformers: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a breathtaking comic book-inspired visual style.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create updated versions of the bold, brightly colored designs of the original G1 Transformers cartoon characters. The game features a story inspired by the IDW comic book universe and includes the talents of amazing voice actors like Dan Gilvezan as Bumblebee, Frank Welker as Megatron and Soundwave, Gregg Berger as Grimlock, and Peter Cullen as the legendary Optimus Prime.
Accourding to Activision and Platinum Games, “TRANSFORMERS: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect. In this incredibly dynamic, combo-fueled experience, players battle as one of five AUTOBOTS – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK. Throughout the game, players unlock new skills, forge new weapons, and augment their characters to battle against the vicious DECEPTICONS, including MEGATRON and the powerful combiner DEVASTATOR.”
