Players will choose from over 40 playable characters from the two different universes as they battle to secure the Dark Spark.
Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming Transformers live-action film and Activision’s Transformers: War For Cybertron and Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron titles, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble autobots and the nefarious decepticons throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios’ Cybertron entries in the highly regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts.
Players will also see the return of the fan-favourite multiplayer mode, Escalation, which delivers wave-based, survival-style gameplay for up to four players online cooperatively. It features new, upgradeable defence systems, recognisable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters from past and present. Additionally, an exciting new levelling system transforms single-player and multiplayer into one unified, persistent character development path. Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks potent awards and tactical loadout choices – including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities and consumable bonuses – for use throughout the entire game.
Pre-order Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark and receive the Weathered Warrior Pack!
The Weathered Warrior Pack includes two characters - ThunderCracker and SkyWarp - both fearsome masters of combat in service of the Decepticons. The collection also delivers two powerful new weapons: the distortion field-generating Glass Gas Cannon and the long-range, kinetic projectile-spitting Electro Bolter.
These potent weapons will also be available for players' use in the story-based Campaign and Escalation modes once they are unlocked.
