Activision Announce “Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark”, Set to Complement Upcoming Movie


With the feature film Transformers: Age of Extinction set for release this June worldwide, Activision have announced that they will be teaming up with Hasbro to publish the complementing video game instalment Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. This third-person action adventure video game is slated to go beyond the movie by uniting the universe of director Michael Bay’s Transformers movies with the Cybertron universe. Players will choose from over 40 playable characters from the two different universes as they battle to secure the Dark Spark.

Those who pick up the game will jump worlds and factions as the game weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. The single-player campaign will provide the option to switch between the Autobots and the Decepticons, and is planned to feature nible, face-paced running and gunning combat compared with transversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale dynamic conflicts.

The Multiplayer mode is also set to return with the mode Escalation, which delivers wave-based, survival-style gameplay for up to four players online co-operatively, making an appearance. It features new, upgradeable defense systems, recognisable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters from past and present. Additionally, an exciting new leveling system transforms single-player and multiplayer into one unified, persistent character development path. Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks potent awards and tactical load-out choices – including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities and consumable bonuses – for use throughout the entire game.

Not surprisingly this will be a multiplatform release, featuring installments on the current and last generation PlayStation / Microsoft consoles in addition to the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC platforms.
