The lights are on
That beautiful image you see above is the Autobot city of Iacon falling apart in the midst of a devastating Decepticon attack. One of High Moon Studios core goals with Transformers: War For Cybertron is to turn the Transformers home planet of Cybertron into a compelling setting that gamers care about. With that in mind, they've shared a whole bunch of concept art (as well as some character art of the titular robots in disguise). Check it out below and let us know what you think!
If you dig the look in these images, be sure to check out our video interview with the War For Cybertron art team for more info on the inspiration for their designs. For continuing Transformers coverage, be sure to keep your eyes peeled to Game Informer's War For Cybertron hub. We've already posted several character profiles, a Transformers history, and a look at High Moon Studios, and we've got more coming for the rest of the month.
Always interested in how the war got started....
If this is coming out next year then where's are gameplay vids? Gimme gimme gimme.
^^^Sorry... "where are the"
I'm impressed with how much Transfomers fandom is in these pictures...
These conceptual art pieces are beautiful!
As the game moves forward from concept to the actual form, details change (or are lost all together), but I hope that is not the case with War for Cybertron. These are all outstanding!
I do have a few nitpicks with the conceptual/completed art, however. Why does Prime have the Autobot symbol on the bottom of his vehicle mode, what purpose does it serve--I hate things that don't fit/serve a purpose; it looks as though it was put there just for the sake of putting it there. It looks silly.
Why does Optimus have wheels? I know this isn't based on the original G1 show, but it is clearly influenced by it. All Transfans know the Autobots hovered--no wheels.
Megatron's conceptual picture looks great, classic colors and all! The other pictures of him, however, have a bit too much purple. The glowing purple parts look too bright, overshadowing his more prominent (original) colors. Had RED been used over purple, I would nitpick as much. I just think RED and BLACK help bring out his dark persona. Purple, though regal in its form, doesn’t work well for Megatron, IMHO. Less purple. More RED, please.
When can we expect to see other Transformers? How about the game in motion (not cut-scenes), and other popular/new characters?
YO THERE ALSO NEEDS TO BE A GRIMLOCK HE RULZZ!!!!! BUT HE'S NOT AS COOL AS STARSCREAM
LIST OF AUTOBOTS THAT SHOULD BE IN GAME
OH AND ALSO BLURR
I think if there is some solid game play mechanics this game should do well. Only one thing bothers me.Optimus looks like a hybrid car, I wonder how many hwy miles he gets?
WOOOOT! Looks... so... prety...
This game would be amazing if they actually put time and thought into it I just hope its not cheesy like the other transformers games
It looks like it is going to be awesome, but is it really? i bought the last transformer game, and story mode lasted me like 30 minutes each! Please make it worth my money in this recession!
Wonder if it will be good.
