BotCon 2015 - Hasbro Panel: Transformers Devastation Features Unrevealed Playable Characters, Release Date, More Details!
As we speculated on earlier in the week,
the Hasbro panel has revealed that we do not yet know all the characters to be featured in Transformers Devastation yet! More details were also revealed about the game's story and the team behind it. Keep reading to learn more!
The Devastation story is being overseen and co-written by IDW editor Andy Schmidt, who also contributed to the stories for War For Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, and Rise of the Dark Spark. The story is said to be a prelude to Combiner Wars, and Schmidt's job was to help reinforce the game's connection to the line. Furthermore, it was announced that not all the playable characters for the game were currently known! It's almost guaranteed that the other characters will be offered as paid Downloadable Content.
Furthermore, a free Transformers Devastation poster will be on-offer to BotCon attendees.
Lastly, we've started to nail down the game's release date, with October being named as the month!
Transformers Devastation will be available for PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PS4. The developer is respected action game creators PlatinumGames, and features returning G1 voice actors Peter Cullen, Frank Welker, Michael Bell, Dan Gilvezan, and Gregg Berger.
