All Articles: Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
A handful of new games are now available to download from the Xbox Games Store, including an IGF-nominated kingdom builder and a robot-wrecking ode to the 1980s.
Developed by Noio, Kingdom: New Lands takes the IGF-nominated kingdom builder and adds “an abundance of new content” including “new mounts, merchants, and vagrants” for its Xbox One debut. And speaking of re-releases, Activision and High Moon brought Transformers: Fall of Cybertron to the Xbox One this week with enhanced visuals and included downloadable content.
Finally this week, Anode is another falling block puzzler that adds colored lasers and detonators to the mix.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)
Your Universe Awaits…
No Man’s Sky was first announced by Hello Games, a small team headquartered in England, way back in 2013. Ever since then, fans have been fervently awaiting the chance to explore the universe in the procedurally-generated space sim. Well, it’s finally time for lift-off as Hello Games added No Man’s Sky to the PlayStation Store yesterday.
Also available to download for the PS4 this week is Indigo Prophecy, one of the first games from Quantic Dreams. Originally released for the PS2 in 2005, the PS4 re-release includes 1080p visuals and full Trophy support. And speaking of PS4 re-releases, Activision and High Moon Studios have brought 2012’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron to the PS4. This new-generation re-release also includes improved visuals and all three downloadable expansions.
Finally, Sony’s “PSN Play” pick this week is Brutal, a “3D re-imagining of the classic 2D ASCII dungeon crawler.”
As always, more information on all of these titles (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
Last year, Stan Bush released a redone version of his iconic Transformer theme, “The Touch,” alongside High Moon’s Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Over the weekend, Bush released a brand new music video for the song featuring some of the biggest moments from the game. The “Power Mix” actually isn’t too bad and Stan wants you to know it’s also available on iTunes.
Of course, if you’d prefer to revel in the 80s awesomeness of the original version from Transformers: The Movie, you can find that music video after the break. (more…)
Activision has released a new DLC-centric trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and it’s filled with a ton of new bots now available for the game’s multiplayer (in fact, there’s so many bots, you just might plotz).
Terrible rhymes aside, how would you like to play as Zeta Prime, Wheeljack, Perceptor, Blast Off, and Ultra Magnus? With the Multiplayer Havoc Pack, you can. Or how about Grimlock, Swoop, Slag, and Snarl? With today’s release of the Dinobot Destructor Pack, you can.
A third DLC pack, the Massive Fury Pack, will be released on September 25 and include Hound, “G1 Retro” Optimus Prime, and the Insecticons (Sharpshot, Hardshell, and Kickback).
The Death that stars in Darksiders II isn’t taking a holiday, but he did take the top spot in The NPD Group’s list of bestselling games in August.
Two other August releases, New Super Mario Bros 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, round out the top three, making August the first time all Summer that three new releases lead the bestseller list. New releases Sleeping Dogs (#6) and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron (#7) also made the list.
The remainder of the August top ten looks very similar to previous months and you can find it after the break. (more…)
Yesterday’s PlayStation Store update marked the final week of Sony’s PSN Play promotion. As promised, the publisher added Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to their download service. But they also added a few other games as well. Exactly how many did they add? How does 17 sound? Oh, and a closed beta too.
Ready? Here goes…
Two PS3 Full Games (Michael Jackson: The Experience and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron)… Nine PSN Games (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Way of the Samurai 4, Metal Gear Solid 2 HD, Metal Gear Solid 3 HD, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure HD, Deep Black, Retro/Grade, Crazy Strike Bowling, and Legasista)… Two PS Vita Games (Metal Gear Solid 2 HD and Metal Gear Solid 3 HD)… One PS2 Classic (GunGrave Overdose)… and Three PS Minis (Top Trumps NBA All Stars, Chopper I, and The Next Space).
And that’s not counting the launch of the Dust 514 closed beta, which began yesterday for PlayStation Plus members.
After last week’s bountiful batch of new releases (some might even call if a cornucopia), this week’s slate is a bit less impressive. But some might say that it’s more than meets the eye…
That’s right, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be available in stores this week and provide players with all the robot-rampages and dinosaur robot-rampages they could ever want. Me Grimlock and me approve… you might say. Fall of Cybertron will be available as a PC Download and on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is less than a month away, but if you pre-order the game from GameStop, you’ll receive exclusive access to the “G1 Retro Pack,” which includes an Optimus Prime G1 Skin, and two G1 Retro weapons: the Megatron Gun and the Shockwave Cannon. You can get a look at Optimus Prime’s new paint job in the trailer above, which has been perfectly cued to “The Touch,” Stan Bush’s perfect rockin’ signature tune from 1985’s Transformers: The Movies.
In addition to the G1 goodies, pre-ordering Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will also net you early access to the game’s demo. The demo will be available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace on July 31, but pre-order purchasers will receive a code to download it instantly.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on August 21.
