Optimus reminds me of his design in Transformers Animated.

Me too with his big axe and all. Which could be good if the draw on all the transformers universes and mix them all together it could be pretty great
Finally, fans yearning for a good Transformers videogame may be in luck. The newest issue of GameInformer magazine reveals a new title based off the hit '80s franchise is coming next year, and it's going to be awesome.

This new entry, Transformers: War for Cybertron, looks to erase all those years of mediocre titles. Developer High Moon Studios (Dark Watch, The Bourne Conspiracy) isn't messing around, either. They're taking cues from Epic Games' highly acclaimed Gears of War franchise to build its gameplay foundation, which the developer is focusing on first and foremost, they say.


Gears of war style G1 Transformers game? :shock::D This game just got me more interested than ever
Transformers: War for Cybertron features two distinct storylines: the Autobot campaign tells a story of heroism to save their home planet against overwhelming odds, and the Decepticon campaign tells a story of an unquenchable thirst for power to control the universe. For the first time in a Transformers title, fans will be able to play the game with their friends through team-based online co-op, or go head to head in a variety of intense, online multiplayer game modes. The game features a sci-fi art style that introduces fans to the entire living, metallic world of Cybertron, as well as all-new visualizations of the iconic Transformers characters in their original Cybertronian forms.

Transformers: War for Cybertron is in development for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3 Windows PC, Wii and Nintendo DS, and is not yet rated.

Looks cool. It will be even cooler if you can play as Omega Supreme.
News about the upcoming Transformers: War for Cybertron seems to be cropping up everywhere, yet details about the upcoming title are sparse. Tformers had a chance to talk to designers from Hasbro and Activision as well as ask some questions of War for Cybertron developer, High Moon Studios. Many aspects of the game are still being kept under wraps, but we managed to glean some new insights into what we can expect from the game.

Well ....
We've learned that Omega Supreme is the final boss of the Decepticon campaign, but we dared to ask if the big guy would be playable and… They didn't say no!

There is hope for that E :D
You mean MGS4? Dang, I need to get around to playing that...

But yeah, this looks pretty cool. Is it the same team that made the movie tie-in games?
Optimus Prime Profile :

Though Optimus is a powerful and respected Transformer at the start of War For Cybertron, he is not yet the leader of the Autobots. After a devastating Decepticon attack on his home city of Iacon, Optimus is forced to step up and help lead his people to victory – wherever that might be.

In robot form, Optimus' main weapon is the Ion Blaster, a special gun that's totally unique to him. His vehicle mode, on the other hand, resembles the truck we all know him as, but actually operates as a Cybertronian tank. His special abilities include Warcry and Mark Target. Though we're not entirely sure what these are yet, it sounds like they may be more focused on buffing allies than full-out assault.

Megatron profile :

As the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron has a goal that fans of the cartoons know all too well: to win control of Cybertron for his faction and exterminate the Autobots. Throughout War For Cybertron, he will be searching for the means to achieve this end, a mysterious substance known as Dark Energon.

Just in case Megatron's attitude didn't make him imposing enough, his frame certainly should. The whole of his right arm is covered by a giant fusion cannon, a powerful one-of-a-kind weapon that can destroy a whole city block with a single blast. This power will be on display throughout War For Cybertron as Megatron launches powerful attacks against his enemies, including a brutal sacking of the Autobot home city of Iacon.

Creating Worlds: Behind The Art Of War For Cybertron

Even the biggest Transformers fans have only caught fleeting glimpses of Cybertron, the often-referenced, rarely seen homeworld of the Transformers. Considering that so much of the upcoming Transformers: War For Cybertron is heavily focused on the planet, the art team at High Moon Studios has clearly placed a high priority on getting it just right.

Take a look below as we talk to High Moon's Ivan Power, Sean Miller, and Jim Daly about how they went about this process.

Starscream profile.

Cartoon watchers who were introduced to Starscream in the '80s were immediately drawn to his sneaky, deceitful nature. Despite being arguably the highest-ranking member of the Decepticons besides Megatron, Starscream is deadset on taking the top spot, and he makes no efforts to hide it. But the original cartoon never really attempted to explain why Starscream was on such a power trip nor why Megatron kept him around despite that. War For Cybertron's prequel story lends itself perfectly to fleshing out these motivations.

The first mission of the Decepticon campaign will chronicle the first meeting between Megatron and Starscream aboard a space station that orbits Cybertron. This dramatic encounter will culminate in one of the Decepticons defecting only to be replaced by an eager Starscream. Despite teaming up with the Decepticons, Starscream will make it clear that in his mind both Megatron and Optimus Prime are failing to keep the best interests of all of Cybertron in their minds.

As one of the handful of Transformers that can change into a jet, Starscream will also have the special Hover ability while in robot form. His other special ability, Shockwave, sounds like it will be perfect for handling large groups of enemies.
I like it based on the fact it's on Cybertron, It looks kind of futuristic/alien which is needed.
