New Gameplay Trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark


Ever Transformers movie has spawned a couple of tie-in video games, and frankly, they weren’t all that great.  War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron were two very fun games, however, and shared nothing in common (story-wise) with the films, instead forging their own way based on the original shows and comics.  Now the game developers want to combine those two, and hopefully the result is more amazing (like the Cybertron games) than sad. 

A new gameplay trailer was released for the game, and while it doesn’t give much more away as far as the interconnecting stories, it does resemble the same fun times we’ve had before:

We’re happy to share with you the latest trailer for Activision Publishing’s TRANSFORMERS™: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK, showing off more of its fast-paced, up-close-and-personal action while casting a larger spotlight on the characters who will play an important role in the hunt for the Dark Spark across war-torn Cybertron and Earth. Not one, but two eras of Optimus Prime lead the charge to secure this relic of unfathomable power, alongside returning heroes and villains like Bumblebee, Soundwave, and Bruticus, the towering quintet of destruction formed by the Combaticons. The trailer also unsheathes one of the new playable TRANSFORMERS appearing in the game – Drift – a former Decepticon who takes up the sword and a new code of honor to atone for his past transgressions against the Autobots.

TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK is expected to be available on June 24, 2014 for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Sony’s PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Nintendo’s Wii U™ system and the Nintendo 3DS™ handheld system and Windows PC. It is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB.
