Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark comes to consoles and PC on June 24

Activision confirms release date for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark; coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS4, Wii U, 3DS, and PC.

Activision has announced (via Joystiq) that its upcoming action game Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is "expected" to launch across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, 3DS, and PC on June 24. The third-person action game was previously slated for a "summer" release.

Activision also announced preorder details for GameStop shoppers, who will receive the "Weathered Warrior Pack" expansion. This include two characters--Thundercracker and Skywarp--as well as two weapons: the Glass Gas Cannon and the Electro Bolter.

These weapons can be used in the Campaign and Escalation modes for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. The Weathered Warrior Pack isn't coming to Wii U or 3DS, Activision said.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is not the only new Transformers game in the works. RuneScape developer Jagex is currently making a browser-based PC MMO called Transformers Universe, which is due out later this year.

Hope this is as good as the last Transformers game, I really enjoyed that (Fall of Cybertron).

I love both WFC AND FOC games, they did a great job on those. But it seems any of the ones in any way attached to a film are just rancid.

I'll be holding off until a demo is out or I have some trusted reviews read.

probably won't play the game but I'm interested in seeing Age of Extinction, if only because I'm curious if it can match Revenge of the Fallen's level of absolute stupidity

it's a tie in, but yet the style looks like one of those awful transformers nickelodeon cartoons. Don't see this turning in to much. But I could be wrong. even though I'm not.

Let's be fair, guys. Even if High Moon was making this, they wouldn't be able to combat the short as shit time frames these movie tie-ins have to be made in.

I bet it will suck balls since its not in the hands of High Moon. The two Transformers games they made were almost GOTY material.

It's a shame that you can never get any decent developers in for these licensed games instead of unheard of ones...

Because they normally end up as garbage like Rambo.

@Spartan_418  Nothing wrong with admitting you enjoy the movies. I personally enjoy them, but they aren't gems. And they certainly aren't what they could have been and should have been. But they are entertaining. Except for the one with the two stereotypical robots, they where just annoying and not funny at all, ruined the whole movie.

@rarerichz  It's likely one of two reasons, technical or money.  Who knows, maybe storage is an issue and research shows WiiU owners are not likely to understand this well leading to frustration.  Maybe they know there aren't enough WiiU players that will buy DLC and it's not worth it.  It could be anything really.


It's probably not some vendetta or malicious intent :).  What can you do, the WiiU is technically and popularity wise a second class console.  Even Nintendo seem to treat the 3DS much better.


I own a WiiU, if that makes any difference to you :).

@ladies_man_xxx its not made by High Moon and its was stated that this'll tie the series to the michael bay movie universe. No High Moon + Michael Bay.........................bad combination, really bad combination there

@leikeylosh @theshortgiraffe The title is dumb but it could be worse. Like tagging on made up words like "REVENGEANCE".

@CrashOV Revenge of the Fallen is the one with the racist robot stereotypes, and I consider it to be one of the worst movies ever made

Though I somewhat enjoyed Transformers 1 and 3, I still wouldn't call them "good movies"

@daikkenaurora12 @seanwil545He looks too much like a steroid abusing body builder and since he doesn't even have any muscles (being made of metal), that makes it even weirder.

@Barighm It wasn't just the voices, one of the robots has a gold tooth for instance

@Spartan_418 @CrashOVJust fyi, The Twins were not designed that way at all. The actors themselves are 100% responsible for their voices and dialogue. There was a different plan, but the producers thought the new voices were funny, so they stuck with it.
