Transformers Devastation PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Transformers: Devastation certainly appears to have the touch – but will it have the power, too? The forthcoming animated series tie-in from Platinum Games will see you play as a total of five different Autobots: Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Sideswipe, Wheeljack, and Bumblebee. And as evidenced in the trailer embedded below, each will have a unique fighting style designed to match their personality.

But while the combat looks pretty darn awesome, we're worried about the lack of variety on display. So far, all we've really seen of the game are a series of combat arenas – and while we do get a glimpse of a new train-based level, the same city-based stage has popped up yet again. We've got our fingers-crossed that there's going to be more to the game than simply pummelling Decepticreeps, but we'll see.

Either way, the artstyle alone is probably going to make this a must for fans of the franchise, and the good news is that there's a pre-order bonus up for grabs if you register your interest in the title prior to release. In addition to including three character skin swaps – for Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldfire – you'll also get three bonus weapons. The game's due out on 6th October.
