by Rainier on April 30, 2010 @ 2:42 p.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.

WARPATH (Autobot)

  • Class: Soldier
  • Chassis: Tank
  • Primary Weapon: Neutron Repeater
  • Abilities: Guided Missile, Barrier

Description: Warpath is loud, confident, skilled and devoted to his fellow Autobots.  He is also partially deaf from his amazingly large cannon.  His favorite past time is showing his friends how he can split a hex nut a mile and a half away with his tank gun.  Extremely well armored to go along with his extreme stubbornness and thick skull, Warpath always loves to press the battle to the Decepticons.

BARRICADE ( Decepticon)

  • Class: Scout
  • Chassis: Car
  • Primary Weapon: Neutron Repeater
  • Abilities: Shockwave, Cloak

Description: Barricade is a true speed demon, powering his engine to speeds faster than some jets.  He is a brutal leader on the battlefield, scolding Decepticons that do not perform up to his and Megatron’s standards.  His favorite tactic is to goad Autobots into transforming and chasing him, then taking the Autobots on fatal routes that only he can navigate.
