Transformers War For Cybertron


War for Cybertron News


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?



The Gnomon Gallery in Hollywood, CA will be featuring a special exhibit that highlights the work of the High Moon Studio's artist's on the Transformers War for Cybertron game. As many fans already know, this was some of the best art work ever realized around the Transformers universe. Now the whole world can enjoy it in this art show that opened on 3/5. Read all the details after the jump.



2011, the 25-year anniversary of “The Touch” and of the original Transformers movie, Stan has teamed up once again with songwriter Lenny Macaluso to come up with this high-energy rocker “Heat of the Battle”! With trademark Stan Bush vocals and searing guitars, this track is reminiscent of “The Touch”! Check out the cool new music video after the jump. Please visit stanbush.com



For those of you who have been holding out on buying both of the Transformers: War for Cybertron Map and Character Pack DLCs, you are in luck! Activision currently has both on sale on XBox Live Marketplace for 400 MS Points, half off the normal 800 MS Points. We have no idea when this will end so you better get it while the getting's good. You can either download them straight from your 360 (a quick link available on the Spotlight section), or purchase them on the XBox Live Marketplace website. Unfortunately, this sale is not available for PS3 owners.



Activision's Transformers: War for Cybertron has been nominated in this year's IGN Reader's Awards. The game was selected for "Coolest Atmosphere" category along with Alan Wake Limbo, NBA 2K11 and Red Dead Redemption. Please head on over and show your support for WFC by casting your vote starting today. The editor's choice awards are being revealed today as well, but we have about a month to get War for Cybertron lots of votes by January 14th! Check out the following link for more info on the Best of 2010 Awards Nominations page.



It seems too soon, but the Generations lineup is now coming to a close. So many unexplored opportunities are left, especially with the War For Cybertron line. Hasbro sees fit to offer us a final figure in the form of a repaint. Cliffjumper may finally get some respect after years of being dissed on the shelves. Check out this review for the whole story.



Are you awaiting the turkey this Thursday and the tryptophan to set in afterwards? High Moon Studios has a cure for you! Starting now until Sunday at midnight eastern time, you can earn 10x multiplayer points! Be sure to round your friends and play to get those extra points!



In celebration of this Transformers: War for Cybertron 10x XP multiplayer weekend, Activision are releasing as desktop wallpapers an original piece of artwork created by the guys at High Moon Studios. It depicts the epic battle between the Autobots and Decepticons in the War for Cybertron era. They also have sent us the Autobot and Decepticon faction poster images. Check out the images for download now after the jump.



The topic says it all... it's happening this weekend! WFC Facebook Page said so! Another big XP boost coming from Friday through Sunday. All XP awards will be 10x their normal value!! Log in this weekend to take advantage of this amazing bump in advancement while it's available. According to the scrolling messages on the game... 6 pm PST! (Yes I checked!)



Earlier this week, we focused on Soundwave in the War For Cybertron subline. Now, we turn our attention to his supreme commander Megatron. From initial looks, the designers seemed to have pulled cues from G1 and the movie, as well as (surprisingly enough) Animated. Does it translate into a good figure? This review attempts to answer that question.



Since Bumblebee and Optimus Prime premiered the War For Cybertron toy line in July, people have been anxiously awaiting the second wave featuring 2 infamous Decepticons. Well, the time is now as Soundwave and Megatron appear on the shelves. We look first to the loyal communications officer Soundwave, whose review can be found here.



Alright members, get your voting cards ready! Last week, we had you submit your favorite TF quote. Now, you can vote for your favorite! The quote with the most votes wins the signed MISC War For Cybertron Bumblebee figure, as well as a WFC poster signed by the High Moon development team! Two runners up will each receive one signed poster. It was tough with so many great entries, but we narrowed it down to 8 quotes.

Click here to view the quotes and place your vote!

Please, 1 vote per member. Voting ends at 11:59pm on Thursday 9/23.

One of my favorite video reviewers Peaugh has posted a review for one of my favorite upcoming releases. The Transformers: War For Cybertron deluxe class Optimus Prime action figure. It has been a mysterious toy of sorts with the way the chest plate works on the robot and vehicle modes. There's lots to meet your eye on this toy and hopefully this review will give you some new / more appreciation for this Convoy.


Thanks to S250, we have some comparison images of Transformers: War for Cybertron Optimus Prime and Classic Optimus Prime figures. The robot modes are comporable but the War for Cybertron vehicle mode is a bit smaller than the Voyager Classics version. Take a look at additional images including the back of the War for Cybertron figure (sans head) and two comparison images of the figures in vehicle mode.


The folks over at UGO have landed the first pics of War for Cybertron's Optimus and Megatron toys fully painted and in both robot and alternate modes! Check them out here.


The Transformers Collectors Club has posted the cover to their 31st issue of their club magazine, and it reveals the Transformers: War For Cybertron Bumblebee figure in robot mode. The image reveals a Bumblebee which is very similar to the video game counterpart, albeit a little more gold. The posting on the club's official website also reveals that the article will spotlight a Q&A session with Activision. A future issue of the club magazine will also feature Jim Sorenson, who will provide a sneak peek of the products available this year.


Update: Transformers Collectors' Club has officially released the Bumblebee image that was previously reported here. More information on the reveal of issue #31 is available in this article. So after a couple of reports that the upcoming Transformers: War for Cybertron video game from Activision and High Moon Studios would be accompanied by a toyline from Hasbro, Inc., it has been officially confirmed that this is indeed true. The official statement was obtained by Game Informer, who requested comment from Hasbro, Inc. Read about it all after the jump.

A couple of days ago, we reported that Warpath and Barricaade have joined the Autobot and Decepticon ranks in the Transformers: War for Cybertron game. We only had screen shots of the official game's website to provide, but thankfully Activision helped us out and provided some official shots of the characters in their robot modes. The character designs are just as awesome, but, you know, just clearer. Take a look after the jump.


TFClub has acquired a very nice copy of the Transformers: War for Cybertron Deluxe Optimus Prime figure and has graciously decided to share some great views with us. As War For Cybertron and the Dreamwave Productions comic book series The War Within take place within the same time period, it is only fitting that the photog provided comparison shots of the action figures from these series.
