Their body parts will also be added to the character creator, which should yield some interesting results.

Andy "Butters" Bulmer took to the dying world of Cybertron for us to perform review duties, and walked away a happy chappy, praising the game's art-direction, its escalation mode and above all else, its well-crafted official canon tale. The game really is a lot of fun, and despite a lack of local support for retail PC, it's absolutely worth looking into regardless of your platform of choice.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron allows players to experience the darkest hours of the war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS as they vie for control of their dying home world. Fans will fight through both sides of the Transformers’ most epic battles that culminate in their legendary exodus from Cybertron. With the stakes higher and scale bigger than ever, players will embark on an action-packed journey through massive, war-torn environments designed around each character’s unique abilities and alternate forms, including GRIMLOCK’s nearly indestructible T-Rex form and the legendary COMBATICONS combining into the colossal BRUTICUS.Without spoiling anything, it looks like the Transformers poor old metallic homeworld is in for a lot more punishment this time around; global warming aint got nuthin' on a robot war.
Watch the trailer below (or here in our HD video library). Transformers: Fall of Cybertron lands on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Australia, tomorrow, August 22nd 2012.

Gamers can experience the explosive first mission as BUMBLEBEE desperately battles to save the Autobot starship under heavy attack from MEGATRON and the Decepticons. Players will also get to take control of VORTEX in an assault mission, changing from chopper-to-jet-to-robot however they please while engaging in blistering firefights on the ground and in the air. As if that wasn’t enough, the TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON demo also allows fans to get a taste of the game’s robust Transformers character customizer, and take their newly created bots straight into Team Deathmatch and Conquest online multiplayer modes.The team are also actively encouraging feedback as far as multiplayer goes and will be monitoring performance to offer the most "balanced" experience they can. Feedback is to be directed to @FallofCybertron on Twitter.

recent interview with High Moon Studios' Matt Tieger, the Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Game Director explained how they've taken the previous game's multiplayer character customisation options and "turned that to 11", boasting that players that dig on customisation "will spend 10 hours in the menus just building Transformers".
Today, you can take a look at some of that in action, as Activision has released a new trailer to Gamespot that offers a glimpse at the character construction menus as well as a smattering of new high-action game. Watch it below.

"Shockwave figures it out; he rediscovers it; starts looking through the cosmos for other worlds that he can steal energy from -- Energon -- and reboot Cybertron; he sees Earth," Tieger explains. "The twist is that he doesn’t see Earth today; he sees Earth when dinosaurs are stomping around, because that’s when this whole story is taking place -- millions of years in our past. So he sees these shapes; he catalogues them and thinks they’re kind of interesting, and then he realises that he can then convert Autobots into these shapes."
He also touches on multiplayer and local matchmaking for Aussies as well as much more.

There's so much E3-related info flying about, and just because the show's over, doesn't mean it's not going to keep coming.
We have a Transformers: Fall of Cybertron Preview for your liking, for example, that talks about everyone's favourite talking in the third-person Dinobot, Grimlock, and how he'll work within the game (in that he's the only transformer in the game who can't transform at will, and needs to earn the option each time). We also look at Megaplex, the giant city-sized, and striding, Autobot as well as much, much more. And in case you haven't seen our E3 screens batch, click the thumbnails below.

Kotaku is reporting that developers of the upcoming Transformers game, Fall of Cybertron, are now working on a PC version.
High Moon Studios told Kotaku earlier this year that a PC title wasn't on the list as it was just too much to handle for the studio. However details have now arisen that this has apparently changed, with High Moon Studios working in collaboration with Mercenary Games to bring a Dinobot filled game.
The game is set for release on August 28th, the same day that the console versions will be available to gamers. Filled with hopefully more PC optimised features and customisations that we have come to expect, it's good news all around for any major fan of the transforming robots we have to come enjoy.
