The lights are on
As the most iconic Transformer to ever roll out, High Moon Studios spent a lot of time rebuilding Optimus Prime from the ground up for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. The war on Cybertron is coming to a dramatic climax, and Optimus has proven himself both a leader and a mighty warrior. His new look is battle-scarred, powered up, and ready for action. Check out the video to see the in-game model for Optimus Prime, complete with commentary from the High Moon team on creating a new look for the leader of the Autobots. Keep in mind that this footage is pre-alpha and was shot in a test area for the new game, so it does not represent the final appearance of the character. Enjoy!

Can't wait, glad they're taking it back to the more "robotic" feel of the original.
dude, i loved war for cybertron, really excited for this game.
War for Cybertron was a fantastic game, finally the Transformers were done some justice and I hope they continue on that path with this game. Looks great so far, can't wait.
...Now I really want to pick up War for Cybertron before this one comes out. This game already looks pretty cool.
My wallet weeps.
Very nice. I'm curious as to how they've redesigned the other characters (especially Starscream and the rest of the Seekers/Aerialbots)
I never beat War for Cybertron's SinglePlayer, but I had a helluva a lot of fun with the multiplayer. I hope this game is just as good as the last.
Looks pretty sweet. Can't wait.
I don't really like this design.
Never played War of Cybertron, it got good reviews and this seems to shape up nice, might get it a try, Prime looks *** :D
The chest looks a bit to cartoon-y. Other that that...pretty freaking bad*ss.
I love all the constantly moving parts!
OP looks OG!!
I noticed when they were Optimus was revolving that there was an active reflection on the strip of chrome his arm.
I graphics certainly are at WfC standard already and the wasteland environment is a welcome addition since it demonstrates Cybertron's "dead" nature. It would make a sweet MP map.
now im just waiting for the toy.
