Sequel to both the upcoming movie, and past Cybertron games.
Activision has released the first details about the upcoming Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, following on from last week's trailer reveal.
Due out later this year on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS and PC, Rise of the Dark Spark will apparently serve as a follow-up to both the upcoming Transformers movie, and previous titles War For Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron.
Described as a "video game complement" to the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction movie by Michael Bay, the official blurb explains, "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."
Gameplay is said to be similar to that on offer in both the previous Cybertron titles, with promises about fast-paced running and gunning, along with vehicle action, large open battlefields and over 40 playable characters.
Multiplayer will include the return of Escalation mode, which sees waves of enemies attack up to four players as you try to work together to survive. Similarly, the game's levelling system will be shared across the single and multiplayer portions of the game, so experience earned in one can be used in the other to unlock new characters, abilities and weapons.
