Age of Extinction
High Moon Studios To Helm Dark of the Moon Game, Trailer Debuting this Weekend

By Datastream on Friday, February 11, 2011



High Moon Studios, the developer behind last year's game Transformers: War for Cybertron, is revisiting the Transformers franchise by taking the helm of the Transformers: Dark of the Moon video game for the Sony Playstation3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360.

It seems another developer will be handling the Nintendo Wii and 3DS versions of the video game, similar to how War for Cybertron was handled.

War for Cybertron was developed on the Nintendo Wii by Next Level Games and was named Transformers Cybertron Adventures. Unlike the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions of the game, the Wii version was a railshooter featuring the same characters and settings.

THE GAME SETTING
Players will be happy to know that the control and gameplay sceheme will be the same, according to Game Director Sean Miller, who spoke with IGN, which has also obtained three screenshots of the game. The game will serve as a prequel to the film's events and takes players through High Moon's versions of Earth-based locations like Siberia and Detroit, according to IGN.

GAME FEATURES
A new feature in the game is called "Stealth Force," although details on this are rather slim.

Multiplayer returns, but High Moon is playing coy on any new features other than what we have seen in War for Cybertron. Escalation mode was not mentioned.

DEVELOPMENT
Have no fear on the quick turnaround time of several months. Mr. Miller assures us that the game was in development prior to the June 2010 shipment of War for Cybertron.

The developers are confident they will put out a better product than the previous video game adaptations of Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which were poorly received. Their reason is that because this game serves as a prequel, High Moon Studios have a bit more of leeway than strictly developing the game around the script.

How these prequel events fit in with IDW Publishing's prequel blowout, or if at all, remain to be seen.

TRAILER
IGN will debut a teaser trailer for the game tomorrow afternoon.

The same trailer will most likely be shown during Hasbro's press event tomorrow afternoon as well, which we will be covering live beginning at 12:30 PM Eastern time!
