Shockwave Joins Transformers: Forged to Fight - Developer Q&A and More
BaCon - Thursday, August 10, 2017


Truly one of the most feared and powerful of all the Decepticons, Shockwave’s existence is driven solely by one thing – logic. Void of emotion, but teeming with strength and intelligence, he seeks only to advance circumstances to their logical conclusion…however grim that may be.
SIGNATURE ABILITY
Undo: Shockwave activates his Undo ability when filling a bar of Power. When Undo expires, he instantly Repairs any damage he took in the last few seconds.

When Filling a Power Bar
§ Shockwave has 15~35% chance to activate his Undo ability for each full Power Bar. When Undo expires, he instantly Repairs any damage he took in the last 4 seconds.

SPECIAL ATTACKS:
Special 1: Shockblast: Inflicts Shock damage for 29~44% of Attack per Energy Charge over 4 seconds.

Special 2: Laser Sweep: Generates 3 Energy Charges, each lasting 8 seconds. 60~100% chance to inflict Repair Block, preventing the target from recovering Health for 4 seconds.

Special 3: Little Friend
§ Generates 5 Energy Charges, each lasting 8 seconds.
§ 100% chance to inflict Repair Block, preventing the target from recovering Health for 7~11 seconds.
§ Inflicts Shock damage for 33~50% of Attack per Energy Charge over 4 seconds.


Shockwave Revealed
This week we’re going to take a look at the one-eyed wonder himself - Shockwave.

Sam Makes Shockwave Sizzle
Cuz: You were in charge of visual effects for Shockwave. I couldn’t help but notice a recurring theme running through all his moves...purple. Was this some sort of tribute to the late, great Prince?
Sam: C’mon Cuz, you know that purple is the iconic Decepticon colour, particularly for Shockwave.
Cuz: Of course, was just testing you. What was your favorite effect to do for Shockwave?
Sam: Hmmm, probably his last laser blast on the level 3, where you see his gun shooting the opponent into the ground, and the camera swings around to show the view from his perspective.

Francois Takes Aim With Shockwave
Cuz: I’m really digging Shockwave’s number three special. Take us behind the inspiration.
Francois: For Shockwave’s special three, we wanted to show a sense of escalation. He starts with his mini-me gun, then his canon and finish you by transforming into his gun form and blasting you through the ground.
Cuz: I’m glad you took sort artistic liberties and actually had him hit the targets and move around with reasonable agility. Fans have been known to knock the big guy for those two qualities;) Of the moves you animated for him, which one is your favorite?
Francois: Definitely his special two. He knocks you back with his energy field and uses his laser beam to cut the screen in two. This move was without doubt inspired by Dragon Ball Z.

Ryan Designs The Decepticons’ Most Famous Bridgewatcher
Cuz: It must have been both an honor and a tremendous responsibility coming up with the stats and design for such a heavyweight fan favorite like Shockwave. What makes the master of logic tick?

Ryan: We knew he was going to be master of Shock (it’s in his name), so Shockwave can absorb energy from the opponent’s ranged attacks to amplify Shock Damage inflicted by his Special and Heavy Attacks. Equipped with Heal Block, Shockwave will ensure that even Healers have no escape from destruction at his hands. Finally his Signature Ability grants him the ability to Undo any damage dealt to him over a certain time period, making the opponent’s defeat all the more inevitable.

Cuz: What’s the best mod to pair him with? Have you made a special aim enhancement mod?

Ryan:The Strange Refractor turns Shockwave into the ultimate challenge for both Ranged and Melee play styles; do you shoot him with a Ranged Attack and have him absorb it or do you move in to hit him with a Melee Attack and risk being Stunned by the Refractor?

Shockwave has also cooked up some unseen mods like the “Yet-To-Be-Named” Mod that commanders can eventually use to put him over the top…once he feels the time is right to reveal it of course.

In TRANSFORMERS: Forged to Fight, Transformers fans and gamers everywhere can build a team of Transformers characters and battle with the most iconic Autobots and Decepticons from nearly every era of the storied franchise’s 30-plus year history , including fan-favorite bots from previous and current animated Transformers TV series, Paramount’s blockbuster films, Transformers comic books and Hasbro's line of iconic action figures. Players explore an epic new universe where multiple realities collide to form a massive planetary battlefield while assembling a team of Autobots and Decepticons from across time and space to fight against a world of corrupted Transformers robots and their villainous overlords. The game features amazing visuals, intense one-on-one battles, meaningful robot to vehicle converting action and deep RPG elements.

UPDATE: We've been reminded that the figures in this leaked image from Weibo are the Titan Guardians sofubi (Soft Vinyl)-style figures. The figures shown were SDCC 2014 exclusives, and the purple exposed leg is a match for Beast Hunters Shockwave. So, does this "leak" actually mean anything? Who knows, but keep reading to see the image.
