Still not sure on this one without High Moon being involved, why ruin a good thing.

Was the URL taken for Rise of the Dawn of the Age of the Dark Spark?

They already ruined a good thing with Transformers 2, this series should have kept it simple. Optimus vs Megatron

This game looks great. Really interested in both stories, especially the Aligned universe's story. I'm just ecstatic to play as the movie Transformers. AOE Grimlock wrecking sh*t with his club looked amazing. Hope he wrecks some Vehicons the same way in the movie.

This game is going to be a mess with trying to actually combine both universes.

Man that chews. Where was the third one of the continued story of the arc by High Moon??? that's what we wanted.

I Loved Transformers War For Cybertron And Transformers Fall Of Cybertron, I'd Play Escalation Mode All The Time. The Multiplayer Was Really Fun And I Really Enjoyed The Campaigns. I Can't Wait For This Game, I Already Pre-Ordered It. I Have To Say I Am Skeptical On Them Connecting It With The Terrible Movies.

OMFG, they've retconned the High Moon games. Fall of Cybertron ended with the Autobots and Decepticons leaving Cybertron. Now in this game they're back on Cybertron like nothing happened. Pathetic. This is a cheap money grab and a cheap attempt to force everyone to like Bayformers.

I hope that's the PS3 version. If not the PS4 really is not proving what it can do visually.

@ Luminus

They're not retconning anything. This game is supposed to be between the two High Moon games.
