So Activision and Hasbro have officially announced the game Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark.
According to examiner, an Activision member announced and shared some details about the game at a Hasbro preview event for the New York Toy Fair. Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will complement the universe created by High Moon Studios in the previous Cybertron games with the universe director Michael Bay created in the Transformers movies.
According to the official blurb:
“Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons throughout the single-player campaign.”
A similar feature that was present in the Cybertron games, the ability to play as both Autobots and Decepticons will be there in the new game too. Grimlock, who features in Bay’s upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie has been announced as a new playable character.
High Moon Studios won’t be taking up the responsibility of developing Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. Instead, the developer of Loadout, Edge of Reality, will take over.
The game will release on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC, Wii U and 3DS this year.
