The lights are on
This is the first of several character profiles we'll be running for Transformers: War For Cybertron, showcasing exclusive concept art and the new visual style that High Moon Studios is using in the game. We'll kick things off with everyone's favorite Autobot leader, Optimus Prime. You can check out his new vehicle form above and his robot form below.
Though Optimus is a powerful and respected Transformer at the start of War For Cybertron, he is not yet the leader of the Autobots. After a devastating Decepticon attack on his home city of Iacon, Optimus is forced to step up and help lead his people to victory – wherever that might be.
In robot form, Optimus' main weapon is the Ion Blaster, a special gun that's totally unique to him. His vehicle mode, on the other hand, resembles the truck we all know him as, but actually operates as a Cybertronian tank. His special abilities include Warcry and Mark Target. Though we're not entirely sure what these are yet, it sounds like they may be more focused on buffing allies than full-out assault.
Stay tuned to Game Informer for two more big character profiles from War For Cybertron in the coming weeks. You can watch for those and all of our other Transformers: War For Cybertron coverage in our War For Cybertron hub.
And so, I have to push 5 more games off my 2010-2011 list so I can get this one.
Cant wait! I've been a transformers fan since the animated series way back when, I'm glad this has nothing to do with the movies, although i agree with others the cgi animation looked amazing. This should be good, we can only hope, maybe it will bring transformers out of the hole! haha
It's weird how the company made his entire body bigger, but his head somewhat smaller. Oh well. Anyways, great visual art. Can't wait for the trailers to come out.
prime looks so cool
agreed with Strafe that they should make a cg movie out of it.... it will be so cool....
This version looks awesome. I might have to add another game onto my list.
One word... SICK!!!!!
That--Is--AWESUUUUUUM!!!! He looks like 10 times cooler like that. This game could actually be cool. "D
Wow Optimus looks awesome. I'm really interested in the game now.
a movie like this will win at least an Oscar
a movie like this will win at least an oscar
That is cool.
Epic games (gears of war) will help out new moon with the game mechanics according to IGN but i don't think that it will be an exclusive though since its being published my activision and they like getting all the money they can
Sweet. Hopefully this game will be a whole lot better than the previous attempts to have a Transformer videogame.
his vehicle form looks so much cooler than in the movies. :)
lookin good,lookin good
I like the approach of a more armored up looking robot this time. I have a feeling this will be a really sweet game.
Not buying unless he shoots rockets out of his exhaust pipes.
