Save for High Moon Studios' slick Cybertron titles, the Transformers brand has been subject to some pretty dire tie-ins. Much like Rodimus Prime, though, Activision is looking to rise again, with the gob-stoppingly awesome Transformers: Devastation. Our friends over at Pure Xbox managed to nab the first set of screenshots from the cel-shaded affair, and while there's no confirmation that it'll be coming to PlayStation platforms just yet – well, it seems likely, doesn't it?
The game appears to be some kind of brawler based upon the Generation 1 cartoon series, and shots show favourites such as Optimus Prime taking on the likes of Devastator and more. Early speculation suggests that Platinum Games is developing this one, which would make sense, as the Japanese studio collaborated with Activision on the equally fanservicey Legend of Korra. All we know is that we want this... Like, right now. Expect more to be revealed over the coming days.
Update (23:45 BST): It's now been confirmed that Platinum Games is the developer of this promising title. More information through here.
DARE! DARE TO BELIEVE
@ShogunRok I wonder if it's a Dynasty Warriors-type title?
@get2sammyb DARE TO BELIEVE
This looks amazing! It's like looking at stills from the 1986 movie. Oh man, right in the childhood....
Day one, I say! Day one!
@ShogunRok Haha! I think Platinum makes more sense given the Korra association, but I could see it being some kind of Dynasty Warriors spin-off, too.
Guess we'll find out very soon.
OMG! This looks amazing - I will be getting this day 1! I believe @ShogunRok! As long as Bay does not touch this!
This looks fantastic. I hope it's not a Warriors type game, no problem with those, but a Transformers game with a good melee system I've wante for a long time, and warriors just doesn't fit for Transformers. It's needs to be more personal and less do an attack to take out 10 enimes type deal. Soemthing with a block and counter system is needed for the Transformers melee fantasy. The only the high moon games could really use some improvement with.
I think it's interesting that there's no sign of any transformation in these shots. I wonder if this game will allow you to turn into a car?
Wow this looks amazing. I hope its more than just brawling though.
@get2sammyb that's an interesting observation. I hope it does. I think it would signal a better overall direction for the game.
@get2sammyb maybe it'll be paid dlc, meaning we will download a car.
Why do you hate Rodimus so much ?
Best Buy have game listed as a cross gen game but here's where it gets interesting...they list the developer as Platinum.
Bestbuy leaked the PS4 version boxart too! http://oyster.ignimgs.com/wordpress/stg.ign.com/2015/06/Devastation-Box-Art.jpg
This has Legend of Korra written all over it...just when you made me believe Platinum could be working on Vanquish. What a decepticon.
I think I just fainted. This looks unbelievable.
Sammy - a Transformers game without transformation. Seems very unlikely. And please don't overlook Atari's PS2 Transformers game. That was awesome.
Feelin' really optimistic for this one since Platinum Games have put out some pretty good games over the past few years.
@get2sammyb Why do you think that it will be something like DW?
