UHF Autobots get 50 high-def missions in Transformers: Devastation

New, 26 comments

Transformers: Devastation seemingly came out of nowhere with its announcement this past spring and, unlike past titles from this franchise, it doesn't seem to be some kind of "yes-that's-nice" adaptation. Activision put Platinum Games on the case to make a brawler that knows its audience and knows what they want — which is the family of Sunbow-era cartoon Transformers throwing the hell down.

The game is coming a week from Tuesday and here Platinum developers explain it all — from a cyber-terraformed Earth to difficulties ranging from "Scout" to "Prime." Really. Hound is hella hurt by that.

The trailer is filled with the gorgeous shine-bite animation of the 1980s cartoons, plus the iconic sound effect of the Transformers transforming. How do you spell that, anyway?

However you spell or pronounce it, Transformers: Devastation rolls out Oct. 6 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
