Transformers: Fall of Cybertron expands upon the original game's multiplayer modes with a slate of deep offerings including a new co-op "horde" mode, Escalation, as well as a robust Transformer creation system, that can be seen in the multiplayer trailer Activision released today. High Moon debuted the trailer at Comic-Con 2012. The footage features plenty of Autobots and Decepticons beating each other up in Cybertron, and also shows off the character customization system that High Moon Studios creative director Matt Tieger expects players to spend hours upon hours inside. At a Comic-Con multiplayer press event that Polygon attended, Tieger focused on the mode's slider for metallic luster, which offers a spectrum from matte to a chrome-like shine.

RAD Soldiers, an asynchronous, turn-based strategy game for iOS devices, was announced earlier today by Brink developer Splash Damage. The game tasks players with managing a group of soldiers — presumably of the radical variety — in turn-based combat against AI opponents or online friends. Players will earn coins in each match, which they can use to unlock new soldiers, equipment and other customization options in an online store. The title will be free-to-play, suggesting that items in the store can also be bought with real-life money. The game will launch on the App Store this June, and will be published by British outfit WarChest Games. Check out the game's announcement trailer below to see the cartoon mayhem commence.

The site tells us the game will include lots of engineering, fully working computer systems, space battles against the AI or other players, an advanced economy, random encounters, mining, trading and loot. There will be both single and mulitplayer versions of the game and it has a fascinating backstory. Here's what the site says: In a parallel universe where the space race never ended, space travel was gaining popularity amongst...
