Platinum is working on about 3 million games right now. Or maybe 5, most of which are exclusives to different consoles (Star Fox Zero, Project Guard, Scalebound, Nier). They’re busy. One of the most exciting titles to American gamers, though, is the cel-shaded beat’em up Transformers: Devastation, which uses our beloved first-generation Transformers as source material for Platinum’s trademark action gameplay.
While Transformers: Devastation is set to release in just two months, not a whole lot has been revealed since its initial unveiling just before E3 this year.
Talking to Dualshockers, though, producer Robert Conkey did have some technical information to reveal that should come as good news for Xbox One and PlayStation owners alike.
The team is claiming a stable 60 frames per second framerate on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, which will both run in full 1080p. The previous generation versions, on the other hand, will run at 720p and reach for 60 fps, though high-action sequences may dip. PC gamers, of course, should expect performance based on the power of their rigs.
Activision, current owner of the license, pitched the game to Platinum, and Kenji Saito, director of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, is directing the game’s development. While some members from the dismal Legend of Korra game are involved, they are only a small part of the team.
Transformers: Devastation is currently set to release on October 6 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
