'Transformers: War for Cybertron' (ALL) Reveals Two New Playable Characters

by Rainier on April 14, 2010 @ 11:53 a.m. PDT

Transformers: War for Cybertron takes players to the Transformers characters' home planet of Cybertron for a new look into the epic story of the grand civil war that spawned one of the most brutal rivalries of all time.

Transformers: War for Cybertron features two distinct storylines: the Autobot campaign tells a story of heroism to save their home planet against overwhelming odds, and the Decepticon campaign tells a story of an unquenchable thirst for power to control the universe.

Transformers: War for Cybertron challenges players to become the ultimate weapon as a Transformers character in the final, epic war that will determine the survival of their entire race.  Armed with a diverse arsenal of lethal, high-tech weaponry and the ability to instantly convert from robot to vehicle at any time, players will engage in heart-pounding battles on land and in the air in this gripping, 3rd person action shooter set in the Transformers' war-ravaged homeland.  Complete with several multiplayer modes, Transformers: War for Cybertron allows gamers to play through story missions with their friends in drop in/drop out online co-op, and also create their own Transformers character for competitive head-to-head multiplayer modes, choosing among four distinct character classes, personalizing its look and selecting from a huge variety of weapons, skills and abilities.

The game features a sci-fi art style that introduces to fans the entire living, metallic world of Cybertron, as well as all-new visualizations of the iconic Transformers characters in their original Cybertronian forms.

The next two playable characters are being revealed today for Transformers: War for Cybertron on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Air Raid (Autobot)

  • Class: Scout
  • Chassis: Jet
  • Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
  • Abilities: Guided Missile, Dash
  • Description: Fearless and rash, Air Raid is always ready for a fight.  He prefers diving head first into a pack of Decepticons rather than shooting them from afar because it’s more fun.  That is his only real goal in life; to have fun.  This attitude always seems to place him and his fellows in danger, but he always manages to get himself and his friends out of it. 

Breakdown (Decepticon)

  • Class: Scout
  • Chassis: Car
  • Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
  • Abilities: Shockwave, Dash
  • Description: Breakdown is a very capable Decepticon warrior, but has one main underlying problem.  He is extremely paranoid that everyone and everything is out to get him.  Being in crowded places is nerve wracking for Breakdown, as he feels like everyone is staring at him, judging him.  He just wants to blend in and do the duty that the Decepticons require of him in anonymity.
