Today at the New York Toy Fair Activision announced a new Transformers video game, presumably to coincide with the release of the next Transformers movie, titled Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. With unfortunate layoffs at High Moon Studios, it appears that the new Transformers game will be in a new developers’ hands: Edge of Reality (whom is most memorable for The Incredible Hulk tie-in). Activision, with the announcement of the new game, have also released a teaser trailer to go along with it…[youtube id=”Sj-lD5gthQ8″ width=”600″ height=”350″]
Co-op story campaign is planned for the console versions, one to four players will be able to join. Also there will be a Gears of War-like Horde mode called Escalation, which will also support up to four players. Players will be able to choose from either side, Autobots or Decepticons, and any experience earned through any mode will be cumulative throughout the game.
We do want to point out that the 3DS version will be a strategy RPG from WayForward Technologies – whom you will know from BloodRayne: Betrayal & Ducktales: Remastered.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will be hitting Xbox One, Xbox 360, 3DS, PC, PS3, PS4, & WiiU sometime later this year.
