Transformers: Fall of Cybertron allows players to experience the darkest hours of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons as they vie for control of their dying home world.

The Autobots and Decepticons have been battling each other for centuries, and as a result their beloved home planet of Cybertron is dying.
