Transformers: Dark of the Moon is the latest game in development for the franchise and features a new ‘Stealth Force’ conversion mode.
The game thrusts players directly into an original prologue storyline to experience the ultimate battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leads into the soon-to-be-released movie and reveals another face of evil, Shockwave.
“We couldn’t be more excited to expand on the epic movie universe in the Transformers: Dark of the Moon game, and allow fans to experience the gripping events and back stories that occur right before the upcoming film,” said Paul Wright, Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties, Activision Publishing. “The immensely talented group at High Moon Studios are huge fans of the property, and they are thrilled to unveil some new characters from the movie while introducing Stealth Force gameplay that lets players convert to a third form beyond robot and vehicle modes to defeat their enemies in more ways than ever before.”
The Transformers: Dark of the Moon game allows players to fight through the epic battles on Earth that will shape the events of the upcoming film. Armed with a brand-new gameplay mechanic, fans will harness the power of Stealth Force to instantly convert to a third, hybrid state that combines the weapons and firepower of robot mode with the agility and manoeuvrability of vehicle mode. Set in unique environments around the world such as the Jungles of South America, Siberian military facilities, Detroit Cityscapes and more, the game lets players assume the roles of a diverse roster of everyone’s favourite Transformers from the movie through a campaign to save mankind. Additionally, fans can play the game with or against their friends through intense, online multiplayer game modes as their favourite iconic characters.
The Transformers: Dark of the Moon video game is currently in development by High Moon Studios for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Behaviour Interactive is developing distinct versions for the Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.
