Transform and roll out against an invading alien threat known as the Legion in this new action game for 1-4 players from Splash Damage. There isn't a lot to see in the trailer just yet, but we do see a certain yellow robot. The game will be relesed in 2023 for PC and Consoles hardware.
World Exclusive Reveal at The Game Awards Offers a First Look at a Brand-New TRANSFORMERS Video Game
London, United Kingdom (December 8, 2022) – Splash Damage, the developers behind Dirty Bomb, Gears Tactics, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, today announced TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE, a 1-4 player online action game, being developed in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc. This PC & Console co-op game will offer players an opportunity to explore a fresh, new story within the TRANSFORMERS universe.
The Game Awards saw the World Exclusive Reveal of TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE, offering fans a glimpse of what they can expect with a cinematic trailer. The gravest threat to humanity has arrived. And it’s already won. Earth is no longer ours; it belongs to them. All we have left is our hope for the Autobots, as we salvage them from the rubble left behind.
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will offer players a chance to immerse themselves in the TRANSFORMERS universe like never before. They will get to play as some of their favourite characters; unique, weighty, and powerful, seamlessly converting between vehicle and bot form as they battle The Legion; the greatest threat the Autobots have ever faced.
Richard Jolly, CEO of Splash Damage, says, “Growing up with G1 TRANSFORMERS in the ’80s means it'll always hold a special place in my heart, it's both an honour and a privilege to work with such a beloved franchise. We know fans have been waiting a long time for a new TRANSFORMERS game on consoles and pc, and we're going to give them the experience they deserve.”
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE marks a new era for Splash Damage and is being developed & published exclusively by the London-based group. As part of this new era, Splash Damage recently acquired BULKHEAD and have been developing TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE in collaboration with the Derby-based studio. The 500+ people strong development & publishing teams at Splash Damage and BULKHEAD are expanding rapidly and TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE is one of several original titles currently in development at the studios.
Eugene Evans, SVP of Business Development & Digital Licensing, at Hasbro, says, “Fans have been eagerly awaiting a new game that immerses them into our iconic TRANSFORMERS universe. We’re thrilled to share a first look on one of gaming’s biggest nights. Splash Damage has an amazing track record with some of the world’s most famous IP’s and have a strong creative passion for the TRANSFORMERS brand. We’re confident that TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will be hugely popular with the TRANSFORMERS community and continues the Hasbro Blueprint 2.0 strategy of creating first-class branded entertainment across diverse categories and platforms including video games.”
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will be available for PC and consoles. With the Closed Beta planned for 2023, players can sign up right now at www.playTFR.com for future updates.
I like this Optimus design. I don't usually play video games, so I probably won't play the game; but I do very much like the designs. I have been looking for an Optimus with the Matrix of Leadership and this one looks perfect. So far the only problem that I see is the handle shape design on the ax, and the fact that it comes in an overpriced two-pack. Other than that, I think this is a solid figure.
Okay...what's with the decos? Is that supposed to be scorch marks and battle damage or something? I'm not quite feeling whatever that is. I don't mind the asymmetrical nature of it so much. It's more that it doesn't seem to belong. I don't think the figures are designed to be asymmetrical like a Transmetal 2 or Energon Starscream. Nor is this intentional for twins like Combiner Wars Stormclash and Skyburst.
It's not quite as noticeable on Bumblebee as black is in his color scheme normally and it's seemingly not as prominent on him. With Starscream though it's very noticeable in a bad way. There's several Starscream figures that have black on them but that's due to some kind of stupid shit for cheaper figures and it always looked out of place.
Sure would like to know if there's ever going to be "clean" versions before committing to getting this set as I like that Starscream so much better than the Earthrise mold. It looks like the IDW T30 legends class/CW leader class Starscream design and I really liked that updated look. With a bit of SSBB Cybertronian Starscream oddly enough or maybe I'm seeing SSBB Blitzwing.
The price is a bit weird too. It's more than what a deluxe and voyager would be by $12. Is this representative of another price increase? Is this maybe licencing fees to the game designers? Does this mean that this isn't a standard deluxe and a voyager? The box dimensions are 9.5 inches tall by 13 inches wide by 3.2 inches deep and a little over 1 pound in weight. So that would make me think that these are indeed a voyager and a deluxe at most.
So that makes me want to know if/when we're getting "clean" versions all the more. I wouldn't want to pay the prices on upcharged figures just for them to be released later with decos I like better. This isn't a Siege and Premium Finish Starscream situation either where they're both fine and have the exact same decos but in different color saturations and shades. This also isn't a case of Kingdom vs Legacy Galvatron or Siege vs Legacy Soundwave either where it's just a little bit of battle damage paint apps that are not applied for the newer versions and can be removed from the older versions.
Looking forward baby, wanna play this game with my cousin and friends. Can't wait for the details.
