War for Cybertron
War for Cybertron Adds Silverbolt and Brawl to Cast

By bwbm on Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Activision has updated the official website of the Transformers: War for Cybertron video game to reveal that Silverbolt and Brawl have joined the ever-growing list of characters in the game. Take a look at the character designs and bios below.


Silverbolt is a grim and brave warrior, who often worries more about his teammates than himself. He is courageous, can fly at break-neck speeds and truly believes in the Autobot cause. He would die in defense of his friends if ever given the opportunity.

WEAPON: Photon burst rifle, Energon club
ABILITIES: Shockwave, Barrier
PERSONALITY: Self-punishing, depressed, grim, wears a brave face.


Brawl is Megatron's pet weapon of mass destruction. He loves nothing more than ripping Autobots limb from limb. He is obsessed with explosions and chaotic, unending combat. He often times thrust himself to the frontlines of battle at the risk of his own spark, not caring whether or not he lives or dies as long as he takes an Autobot with him.

WEAPON: Neutron Repeater, Dark Energon Morningstar
ABILITIES: Whirlwind, Dash
PERSONALITY: Obedient, never questions order but lacks any creativity.

Abombinus would be my last choice. I don't really care for him, just trying to get my point across with how may Gestalts there are. IMHO the Combiners are a great Idea, it just would add a whole different aspect to the game, so I will agree that they can wait. I think it can be done. Maybe ... read more

Yeah, I'll have to take this official 'canon' with a grain of salt or two. If it holds all the promise that their touting then it is going to be the most bad@$$ TF game to date that I've played. I still think they could do a full up MMO of TFs though.

I think all possibility of this adhering strictly to the G1 cartoon continuity hit the road the moment Trypticon (who wasn't created until season 3) showed up in the first trailer. Which is just fine with me; this is simply a streamlined continuity in which G1-like characters exist as dictated b... read more

High Moon would only include gestalts if they could devise a good reason for them to be in a game.

I agree...lets see how this game goes over before they add in all the combiners. It'd be awesome to see what High Moon studios would cook up for earth alt modes.

No. Just...no. Terrible choice. I find it unlikely that something as complicated as "Gestalts" will be implemented or included in this game or any DLC. It would be pretty awful in Multi-Player and mildly abusive in Single-Player. With the copious amount of characters to choose from, I... read more

Just like Beast Wars Megatron he took the name of Megatron from the Original(actually something about a TF Bible or data tracks) The Silverbolt from BW also has the same name, but it is not the same character. Unlike Ravage who became a Predacon Agent Ravage. He was rebuilt as such. The others just... read more

So with the addition of the Arielbot leader, is it safe to assume that the other ones will be included? Has there been any word if Combiners will come into play in this game in multiplayer mode? How awesome would that be? Devastator, Menasor, Superion, Burticus, Computron, Prediking, Abombinus....... read more

Despite my joke, I'm not seeing this as "real" G1 any more than IDW's or Dreamwave's comics. It's just another storyline inspired by G1. I have no problem with the designers taking some liberties with characters if a good game results. Besides, even if you do accept it as ... read more

^ Unlikely that his spark would be that ancient. It was implied that even though many of the protoforms were reborn as new individuals from the damage they received, their personalities were largely the same as before the damage. I find it hard to believe his idealism would have survived from that l... read more

More War for Cybertron News
This week on Radio Free Cybertron we have the rundown from Toy Fair 2014, onsite interviews with Activision and Hasbro at Toy Fair 2014, this week in History, the week's news, comic news from Aimee and the entire 23 minute presentation from Hasbro at Toy Fair 2014.

Activision Publishing, Inc. and Hasbro today released two new video game bundles that are more than meets the eye: TRANSFORMERS: ULTIMATE BATTLE EDITION for Nintendo’s Wii system and TRANSFORMERS: ULTIMATE AUTOBOTS EDITION for the Nintendo DS™ hand-held system. Both titles combine two full games from the epic, galactic saga between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS into one package loaded with adventure and value for this holiday season.
So, it seems lately that there's always something I don't like about Optimus prime figures and their paintjobs. Last time it was PRID OPtimus that I had to do something about, and since I've just got my Corbot V war axe in, I decided to finally tackle WFC Optimus. Check out the full makeover list after the jump
For those who are worried that they if they jump into Transformers War for Cybertron multiplayer now will be extremely far behind, have no fear: the multiplayer XP will now multiply by five starting on Monday until forever. This change is in effect for Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony Playstation 3, and PC versions only. So if you have been looking to max out all of your classes but have been too lazy to do it with only a 1 to 1 ratio for points, how about 5 to 1?
Transformers: Prime Deus Ex Machina, Dark of the Moon Movie Game, TFCC Ramjet, Nitro Bumblebee and our discussion this week: Transformers Videogames We Always Wanted!
