The fall of Cybertron is set for August.

A follow-up to 2010's War for Cybertron, Fall of Cybertron takes players through the final hours of the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons as they battle for dominion over their fading planet.

Fall of Cybertron will not include its predecessor's cooperative component, but High Moon is beefing up the game's multiplayer mode. Specific details are thin, but the developer showed the game off at DICE 2012 in February, revealing that players will be able to customize their characters' parts and color schemes.
