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.
Did they finnaly get it right? yesssss.
freaking sweet dude! awesome vehicle mode.
I love the totally red body with a blue head. But I wasn't expecting Cybertron to still employ something as archaic as wheels. I was expecting hovercrafts.
...A robot for a friend...Ever since I was six...
It's about time they realize that a truck is about the worst form he could have.
Optimus looks AWSOME
I think he should've kept upgrade he got in the second movie...
*** this looks beast as crap maybe actually pretty good cant wait for some gameplay
Very nice ...for the Cybertron look.
Wow, he looks cool!
And am I the only one who noticed that the dates for these images are from October of 2008? They sure have been working on this game for a while. Maybe that's a good sign.
