War for Cybertron Autobots

High Moon Studios had a press event recently that many of the longest-standing Transformers sites were invited to. On display was some of the production art for the game and it is incredible! Check out posts about this at Seibertron and TFW2005.

From what I can see, we get a glimpse at a ton of the environments and most importantly, the characters themselves!

It has been recently revealed that the chracter I suspected to be Onslaught was actually Brawl.  That’s great because the chracter looks very convincingly to be that ‘other’ Combaticon.

Of particular interest to me is the female-looking jet Decepticon on the High Moon’s Decepticon roster board.  If you ask me, this looks like a dead-ringer for a War For Cybertron version of Animated’s Slipstream!  What a cool character to bring in!  Female seekers have been a part of fan fiction since it started and now it’s becoming canon.

Speaking of she-bots, it looks like the autobots’ femme fatale Arcee is on hand to do some damage.  We also see a little red bot in the forme of Cliffjumper.

And finally, we get a good look at Zeta Prime.  He has a likeness to IDW’s Sentinel Prime, but now that Sentinel has been re-cast a pompous bootlicker in Animated, it appears the Prime previous to Optimus has been ret-conned to be Zetz Prime.  I can deal with change like that.

This game is going to be epic!  I hope you have your pre-order in… I still need to do it!   I’m voting Shockwave this year!

    That red Bot on Autobot-Side is actually Sideswipe. Cliffjumper was a bit of simmilar to Bumbleebee, Sideswipe is more agile and faster, that´s why the car form is different.

    I hardly can wait for this game to come. One more Week to go!
