New ‘Transformers: Fall of Cybertron’ Trailer Teases Earth

Transformers Fall of Cybertron Trailer BTS

Activision and developer High Moon Studios got it right in 2010 when they released to nothing-to-do-with-Earth-or-humans Transformers: War For Cybertron, a game that earned praise from critics and fans alike. They got it oh so very wrong the following year with the rushed and ugly movie tie-in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but we’re going to ignore that as we look forward to Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, one of Game Rant’s most anticipated games of 2012.

Although Activision confirmed War for Cybertron would get a sequel from the get-go, it wasn’t until last fall when we got our first look at the game (and Grimlock, leader of the Dinobots) through the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron teaser trailer. Today, High Moon Studios is sharing the first full, official trailer for Fall of Cybertron where our own planet is teased.

The trailer showcases a more varied color theme and aesthetic, larger environments, more vehicles and… dubstep. We also get a brief look at what may be the Ark, the Autobot spaceship which brought the Transformers to earth in the first place and the ship that was featured in last year’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon film.

The game looks exciting, fresh and fun, and by all accounts, the developers seem to be listening to the feedback and adding features we wanted from the first game. In addition to bots that can combine (Bruticus!) and health regeneration, Fall of Cybertron includes customization options that let players customize parts of their character from the torso outwards, along with purchasable equipment and weapons (that fire faster).

According to Activision, Fall of Cybertron is more of a natural successor than a sequel, and our only major gripe so far is that the game’s campaign has no co-op unlike its predecessor. In its wake, there are supposed to be a lot more multiplayer features but we’ve yet to see what yet. Hopefully, some form of co-op horde mode – it’s what all the cool kids are doing (see: Gears of War, Mass Effect, Ghost Recon, etc.).

If you missed it, check out the other awesome, more emotional Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer from the Spike VGAs.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron releases August 28, 2012 on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

  1. How much longer until Dubstep goes the way of disco and stops ruining things? The first trailer was great and great music to make it even stronger. This video looked good, but that damn dubstep was distracting. You would think it work with a Transformers machine thing, but NO, it’s still sucks.

  2. Another trailer ruined by dub step. Can some one tell the poor judgement teams (A.K.A Marketing teams) of the world that dub step is dead?

  3. While the audio for the trailer is a convoluted and irritating mess, the game, so far, looks awesome. It’s nice to see the Transformers in good form. Also, just seeing “the real” Bumblebee makes me smile. :) This is definitely one that I’m looking forward to seeing more of.

    • I agree on the audio. For the first third, it’s all stuttered, then the Dubstep takes over and it’s messy.

  4. Love the gameplay footage and music
    The trailer is pure EPICNESS

  5. That was the best transformers video game trailer I have every seen
    That the way MB should make his films

  6. That trailer Is amazing

  7. Powerful in so many ways music & footage
