Ready at Dawn's famous for giving Kratos a personality and creating the second-best looking game on the PlayStation 4, so forgive us for being somewhat shocked by De-formers – its brand new title, which is being published by US retailer GameStop. The release appears to be some kind of King of the Hill-esque arena multiplayer experience, with spherical animals or… Something.

To be fair, it could be quite fun. The experiment appears to mix Super Smash Bros, Super Monkey Ball, and Twisted Metal all into one zany party package. There'll be local four-player split-screen, as well as, we assume, online multiplayer. It's nice to see something different, we suppose – but one can't help but wonder whether the studio would be working on this if The Order: 1886 was a hit.
