Two More Characters Join Transformers: War For Cybertron

We've seen a bunch of character reveals for Activision's upcoming Transformers: War For Cybertron, and today the cast grows by two more: the slow-but-powerful Ironhide and the stealthy Skywarp. Check below for more images of the additions in robot and vehicle form and character profiles from Activision.

Skywarp
Decepticon
Class: Scout
Chassis: Jet
Primary Weapon: Thermo Rocket Launcher
Abilities: Cloak, Dash

Skywarp possesses cloaking technology which he uses to sow destruction upon his enemies.  Skywarp isn’t the most intelligent Transformers character in the Decepticon force, so he needs to be continually guided and told what to do.  Regardless, once set upon a path, Skywarp will achieve his goal with quiet, ruthless efficiency.

Ironhide
Autobot
Class: Soldier
Chassis: Truck
Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
Abilities: Whirlwind, Dash

Ironhide is the oldest Autobot on the team.  He is the slowest Autobot on the team.  He is also the meanest, toughest, orneriest Autobot on the team.  He is most definitely yesterday’s model, but he was built to last – seemingly forever.  He is a soldier, first and foremost, but his tough exterior hides a deep compassion for life.  He is one of Optimus’ most trusted advisors on all matters.
