The lights are on
Get a fascinating glimpse into the biggest challenge facing the Fall of Cybertron animation team: transforming robots. Watch Optimus Prime, Grimlock, and Jazz change form in the videos ahead. The team at High Moon is laser-focused on creating an authentic vision of the Transformer characters -- one that is true to the roots of the character concepts, while still moving the fiction and visual treatment forward in exciting new directions. That philosophy is on display in a big way through the animation work that is going into Fall of Cybertron. Each character's unique transformations is built to represent the nature of the character. Optimus Prime pounds the ground with the force of a gorilla. Jazz flips and twists like a break dancer. Grimlock morphs into a destructive monster like an uncontrollable hulk bursting forth from a smaller form.The development videos below offer a close-up look into the technical and artistic challenges facing an animator, not to mention some early glimpses of these characters in action.Enjoy!Optimus Prime

grimlock is beast
Gonna be a great game
This is so awesome! I wonder if the Transformers can move their mouths under those big heavy helmets they wear? Hmm...
Wow, that was amazing...... I think you guys at Gameinformer should do more videos with the art directors of games. Also I like how much the people at High Moon seem to really enjoy transformers, they seem like they are big fans of the lore.
I've never been interested in Transformers(Though I did see the first of those awful live action movies)...but I gotta admit, after reading the magazine, I'm highly interested in the lore of the franchise.
Wow!!! someday I'm gonna be doin stuff like that
I also grew up watching G1 Transformers back to back with GI Joe. And since I've found the G1 Transformers series on Hub, I've been watching them with my boys. Good times. Really good times.
grimlock's animation is super snazy
This is going to be epic! Can't wait for this game!
