Activision has released the first trailer for their upcoming video game Transformers: The War for Cybertron.
The game features an original storyline and has nothing to do with the movies or Michael Bay. High Moon Studios (Darkwatch, The Bourne Conspiracy), the developers behind the game, have said they are taking a Gears of War style approach to the look and feel of the game. To be fair the trailer is just a teaser, and features no actual gameplay. However, it appears that the appearances of some famous characters like Optimus Prime look nothing like their cartoon or film counterparts.
I’d love to see what a Transformers game would be like with Gears of War style action and gameplay. I have yet to play a fun or even playable Transformers game, but hopefully The War for Cybertron will end the streak of bad games; much like the recent Arkham Asylum did for Batman games. Now we just need to see some actual gameplay footage.
Transformers: The War for Cybertron is due out in 2010 for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
