War For Cybertron Multiplayer Preview Trailer - Arcee & Slipstream Revealed!
Primus - Wednesday, May 05, 2010
Thanks to Activision who sent us this Preview Trailer you can get a first hand look at the new Transformers War For Cybertron - Multiplayer Overview with details on what's going to be available for people to do head to head on what could be the greatest Transformers game ever? Is that Arcee and Slipstream right at the end there? Oh and be sure to read our hands on review now here
Update: We pulled some screen grabs from the trailer and it does indeed look like two female Transformers will be joining the War For Cybertron fun. There's one for each side. Autobot Arcee plays for good and the Decepticons she Seeker Slipstream playing for evil.
Autobot Arcee - Good
Decepticon Slipstream - Evil
What's most surprising is it looks like these female faction robots may be going head to head if the trailer is showing us an actual game scene. Could this be the first ever Transformers cat fight? If so, the guys at High Moon have my deepest respects.
Transformers cat fight?

I jsut realized that you might adopt new color scheme during team matches...kinda makes the color customizing useless... Is there a free for all match so that you can use your own color scheme?....is that what Escalation mode is?...anybody know?
would you be willing to sell any of them by chance?
I am up to 5 custom Slipstream toys t the moment..
Would yah look at the oil cans on her!!!
thats right i completely forgot the female seekers name in Animated was Slipstream,i haven't seen the show in so long i forgot they had a female seeker at all
The blue one looks like the Decepticon that descended from the ceiling in the G4 preview that killed the Cliffjumper looking Autobot. It's so hard to tell who is who with all the redecos available in multiplayer mode.
I did a bit of comparison between the images we have, and I think the blue break-dancing Autobot might be Sideswipe. Someone said it was Jazz, but the shape didn't look right, and I think the chest/hood looks a lot like the concept art for Sideswipe.
Take a look, what are youre two cents on it?... read more
That video shows some awesome multiplayer footage...can't wait. Arcee and Sliptream could get my girlfriend to play the game too. Yay for Fem-bots!!!
Personally, I like the name Slipstream. It's a good homage to the female Seeker. It's only right that she be included.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I've got oil in my basement, mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Arcee and Slipstream, I could go for some bot on bot action.
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?
