Transformers: Fall of Cybertron on Blu-ray and PSN Tomorrow, Launch Trailer

Matt Tieger's Avatar + Posted by Matt Tieger on Aug 20, 2012 // Game Director, High Moon Studios

Excited to join you today as we celebrate the impending release of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron with our new launch trailer. We have what we believe is the most complete Transformers game ever. There are so many different Transformers that are playable and many of them — the Dinobots, Metroplex, the Combaticons — are appearing for the first time.

In a first for us, the full Fall of Cybertron game is available day one download via PlayStation Store. That’s this Tuesday afternoon in the US (Friday in Europe). Skip the drive and join us on Cybertron!

Many of you have already been enjoying our free demo on PSN and we’ve loved all of your great feedback. The demo features single and multiplayer modes and you can expect tons more in the full game this week. I wanted to extend a personal thank you to the hundreds of thousands of you who have played the multiplayer part of the demo. Your feedback has helped us make important changes to the final game. If you have not yet tried the demo, give it a shot. The ability to transform makes for a very unique and exciting multiplayer experience. We offer tons of depth with four different classes and an amazing character customizer that allows you to build your own Transformer from the ground up.

Enjoy the trailer! I’m happy to take your questions.

Loved the first and will undoubtedly love this one, I will extremely miss double jumping though. Can we still air dash?

    Thanks for the comment. Double jump was a feature that the majority of our fans disliked as it was often abused. But yes you can still air dash. Try it in the PSN Demo.

Ah, was really hoping for a midnight download release like Mass Effect 3, but I guess I can wait till the afternoon! Little disappointed that people who wanted to purchase it through PSN cannot take advantage of the preorder bonuses too. Whatever, first world problems, right?

But I really wanted that G1 Optimus skin…

Remember that one episode of Transformers when they were in the heat of battle and they ran out of ammo? You don’t? Because it never happened!

Kill it with fire.

Another multiplatform turd with awful Xbox 360/Unreal engine graphics gimped to fit on a last gen DVD sized disc.

With the absolute flood of PS3 exclusives with insane graphics and gameplay, who the hell is dumb enough to waste their allowance on junk like this?

I posted this on the EU blog;

Well firstly I would like to thank you for doing what you did with the War and now Fall of Cybertron games they have been truly great games and I love how they link with the G1 series.

I have my pre-order ready and have received my Grimlock t-shirt in the mail this morning :D

So thank you for everything :D

On a side note; I was just wondering could you guys make it so that double XP is gained in War for Cybertron multiplayer? For people that would still love to complete it?

Loved War for Cybertron and will undoubtedly love Fall of Cybertron (and whatever is after that).

Was any thought given to a level creation toolkit? User generated content seems to be all the rage right now and I’d love to see it in the Transformers universe.

    Thanks for that. Yes we are looking forward to our next project. Don’t miss Deadpool next year of course.

    Agree I am sure Transformers fans would do wonders with something like a level toolkit, however its not in our plans.

Just to let anyone who reads this know- I talked to a “supervisor” at Sony today 08/20/2012. He said they were aware that some people were having issues with adding funds to the wallet. either by console or on the internet. He said there is no solution other than waiting a few days to one week to try again or just go buy a network card. He said auto renewal will probably fail also and that if your plus membership lapses that your downloaded (discounted) games will cease to work and that he did not know if reactivating your plus membership would restore there functionality. You may have to re purchase them he said. I told him that having to go and buy network cards everytime i want to buy something is NOT a solution but that does not seem to concern Sony- or at least this “supervisor”. $300 in plus memberships plus all the crap I buy gets this response. Needless to say I am not happy.

Thanks for the answer and for being so in touch with the fans. It was fun watching this game getting built with all the trailers and interviews.

Next question…. :)

Can you give any hints as to the future DLC that’s coming for FOC? Will there be the same amount/more/less as WFC? What about the content (playable characters/levels/whatever else)?

    We are hard at work on DLC as we speak. The biggest item we are working on is adding Dinbots to multiplayer. More on that and some of our other offerings in the near future.

+ HNKS on August 20th, 2012 at 11:38 am said:

Cant wait till Friday, my question is will Dinobots/Insecticons be available in multiplayer (not escalation)? If yes then how will they feature? E.g. purely cosmetic or a new class?

you did a great job on the game loved war for cybertron and thank you for getting rid of the double jump.
i think you should atleast put the G1 pack for DLC in the futer
thank you for the game and i cant wait to get it

+ trooperman567 on August 20th, 2012 at 11:53 am said:

I loved War for Cybertron and from what I’ve seen Fall of Cybertron looks like it might be even better!

My question is that the G1 Prime skin pre-order bonus says it will be for both singleplayer and multiplayer. Is it just going to be an option in escalation or will it add parts for customization in regular multiplayer?


    Matt Tieger's Avatar

     

    + Matt Tieger on August 20th, 2012 at 1:29 pm said:

    Thanks! So you will have both the option to play as G1 Optimus in the single player campaign and use him/or his parts in multiplayer. Escalation is a different setup.

Thank you guys for being progressive enough to put your games on psn the day they launch on retail. Thats the first step to a bright digital future. I just really wish publishers would also take the deeper step of giving people who buy digitally a substantial discount compared to retail price.
I don’t know what back room deals that go on that prevent you guys from doing this, but i really don’t think its fair make people pay $60 for a psn version. I’m also a PS Plus member, so i’m hoping that maybe we’ll at least get a discount for that.
Either way, the game looks great and the demo was loads of fun.

Will we get the G1 DLC for getting the PSN version I wanted to get the PSN version instead of Blu-ray but don’t see a pre-order option on PSN I’m kinda sad if I don’t get any pre-order bonus content for buying a digital version of the game. PlayStation please make this happen. Hope for a nice reply back. Your Transformer Fan. :)

Please bring back Vehicle Abilities! Everybody is asking for them. They gave more meaning to Vehicle modes and are needed in this game.

+ Miggy11 on August 20th, 2012 at 2:06 pm said:

Please bring back vehicle abilities and grenades. I also would want an ability system like Dark of the Moon (wfc ability system was spammed).

The delay in transforming and then shooting is also way too long, and it makes transforming, something that before was encouraged now not so much.

The melee system also needs an improvement as the current melees feel weak and you sometimes can’t tell if you hit someone.

The destroyer also needs a weapon that is not a rocket launcher.

Love your guys games hope you get to do a beast wars game, but kinda mad that you waited till today before the game comes out to tell us we can download it day 1. I seriously hate disc version and the places that sell them and prefer to buy games on the psn. If you would have said your were going to do this a few weeks back i could have gotten a psn card and been ready to download tomorrow.
Also is the dinobot dlc going to be free or not and if not how much will we have to fork over

2. Any word on any PSN avatars or themes? Would love to get me an Optimus avatar. :)

After how bad the recent movies were I wasn’t paying much attention to anything TF these days.

But after watching the trailer I now want this game, curse you for doing your job and making me spend!

Should probably pick up the first game first though.

+ supvic on August 20th, 2012 at 6:00 pm said:

Please tell me the PSN price will be decent. If it’s the same as a retail copy there’s little incentive, plus you still have to download the game which could be huge. There’s no midnight release or preorder bonus on PSN and the price will probably be the same if not higher.. so GIVE us an incentive to buy on PSN.

Exactly! I don’t support games or companies that have any dirty, greedy, anti consumer practices either. If I want a game that has does any of those practices, like the anti consumer DLC practices, I just wait until the new version comes out with all the DLC already in it at a fair price, that’s not overpriced.

@38 – What day 1 DLC is on the disc? I don’t think there is any DLC available yet on the store for this game period.

Other than various pre-order bonuses, I don’t see anything not yet available on the retail disc. Perhap you are confusing day 1 DLC with the full digital version of the game being available on PSN simultaneously with retail release. That has nothing to do with DLC.

@ Matt Tieger – fantastic job with this game. The first rocked and this has raised the bar even further. Not just hands down the best Transformers game, but amongst the best of the year to date.

My only 2 suggestions…

Please release some Avatars and PSN Themes. Normally I would say that I wouldn’t waste my money on them, but my PS3 *needs* a Transformers Theme (take my money already)

Please up the XP award rate, or have some 5x/10x bonus events soon. The multiplayer is fun, but it is really slow to level up. I don’t want to see this fall into a grindfest.
