Generations
The Devastation Of Online Transformers Video Game Offerings Explained
RAC - Friday, January 12, 2018


Gaming site IGN has contacted Hasbro to find out more about the recent disappearance of Activision's Transformers titles from digital storefronts. Hasbro's answer will probably surprise you in the least, as it's the answer we all suspected. Keep reading to see the confirmation.
Hasbro confirmed to IGN its contract with Activision to publish Transformers games has expired. However, Hasbro is not at this time discussing what, if any, plans it might have for Transformers games on PC and consoles in the future. Multiple mobile games, including Transformers: Forged to Fight, are still ongoing, however.


So, there we have it. Activision's license has expired, and so War for Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron, Dark of the Moon, Devastation, and the other lesser Transformers games are no longer available for download. Sadly, the current-gen remastered version of Fall of Cybertron that came out (at full retail price) last year was never offered physically, so you'll need a PS3 or an Xbox 360 to play that excellent game from now on.

Also worthwhile if not spectacular was Transformers Prime: The Game which appeared on 3DS and Wii. And while not particularly celebrated on console, the 3DS version of Rise of the Dark Spark was a strategy game by developer Wayforward, so that's likely worth a look.

All in all, Activision had a lot of ups and downs with the Transformers license. When they gave it the attention it deserved, or even a little bit of the attention it deserved, good things happened. And the developer of the two best TF games, High Moon Studios, has gone onto (presumably financially) better things, producing content for Bungie's hit Destiny series.

What's next? We don't know, but hopefully this isn't the last of (Good!) Transformers games on consoles.

More Generations News
While still what we would consider early in its life cycle, it seems that a running change has already been carried out on the latest member of the generations Starscream family. Jason Rye reported this finding to us, which involves an alteration to how Starscream's wings/backpack connect to the body. The design tweak is said to improve how the jet mode comes together, and may have other benefits as well. You can see a side by side comparison of the two versions of Starscream, find out more detail, as well as get one of the batch codes identified as being associated with this running change below.

Twitter user @GanguStars has posted an image showing two of the shelf-warmingest Titans Return Deluxes - Scourge and Chromedome - marked down to $7! In the case of Scourge this is particularly great news since you can now build the Sweep army of your dreams. As for Chromedome... time to double-check for that running error with the TakaraTomy face again! Keep reading for photographic proof.
Almost a month to the day that Amazon posted listings for the 4.5" three-step Authentics figures, Hasbro has posted official photos and product listings for the 7 inch line on their website! Optimus and Bumblebee look extremely similar to the smaller figures but with extra joints, and here we have the Grimlock that was leaked a while back. Keep reading to see!
After a lot of crazy things happening all in a relatively short span of time, it seems like life is finally starting to settle down, with efforts to smooth tensions between Cybertron and Earth being foremost in Optimus Prime's mind. I'm sure nothing could possibly turn up to get in the way of that! "The Falling, Chapter 1: Surfeit of Primes" written by John Barber, art by Kei Zama, colors by Josh Burcham.

Transformers Authentics, the "evergreen" style simple budget figures that seem to be taking after the Cyber Battalion series now have product listings on Hasbro's website. The first batch including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Starscream, and Megatron are not yet available for purchase from Hasbro Toy Shop, with their "Buy" buttons leading to error pages. But these listings do confirm the SRP, with prices listed at $4.99 each. The listings include the same images that we saw with the Amazon releases recently.
