Transformers: Fall of Cybertron release date moved up

High Moon Studios' new third-person action game bumped up to August 21 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

by

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will make an appearance earlier than expected. A new trailer (embedded below) for High Moon Studios' third-person shooter reveals the game will be out on August 21 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Previously, the game was scheduled to arrive August 28.

Grimlock's fire breath will arrive a week early.

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. In this mode, players will be able to customize their characters' parts and color schemes, allowing them to create unique Autobots and Decepticons.

Well this spices things up and unique autobots and decepticons sounds great if they don't cheap out the details.

@Caldrin The last game was pretty good. at least it's better then the ones based on Micheal Bay's three movies.

Actually TF1 and TF2 movie games were kinds nice in my opinion. Especially because of the free roaming and the cool unblockables.

If you don't mind, I was expressing MY opinion. I liked the option of freeroaming in a big city as any Transformer I like. The missions were also enjoyable, comparing to other shitty movie based games I played. Not saying they're better than WFC and FOC though.

 @Bumblebee1138 No they weren't. They were absolutely terrible. This and WFC are two TRUE Transformers video games
