The November issue of Game Informer magazine will feature a special cover most nerds like myself will get exceptionally excited for. The issue reveals and covers High Moon Studios‘ next Transformers effort with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron.
Of course, Game Informer is holding their exclusive information as secret until the issue officially releases, but their announcement page did reveal some light details for this upcoming sequel. Here’s what they offered about the game and their coverage:
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron continues the story of the Autobots and the Decepticons and their bitter civil war, but changes and improves upon so many of the fundamental ideas that the developer considers the game a natural successor rather than a true sequel. We have over 12 pages of exclusive details on High Moon’s new project, including extensive story and gameplay explanations, concept art, and dozens of screenshots.
The cover you see above is actually one of two set to ship with the magazines. The bot next to Optimus Prime, if you don’t know your Transformers fiction, is Grimlock. Grimlock is the leader of the Dinobots, a faction of prehistorically figured Autobots. Every nerd you know should be squealing with delight at this very moment.
War for Cybertron, the first Transformers title from High Moon Studios, took the gaming world by complete surprise. The third person gunner was unique because of its playability, something often absent from licensed video games. It garnered instant support and a healthy round of success from fans.
The official game for Dark of the Moon, however, was very nearly crap. TechnoBuffalo’s own Sean Aune told me it was horrifically short and oftentimes bad. Let’s hope High Moon doesn’t repeat that same set of mistakes again with Fall of Cybertron.
