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.
