Activision have announced a new licensed title for Hasbro's Transformers license, revealing that Transformers: Dark of the Moon is currently in the works at War for Cybertron developer High Moon Studios. As the subtitle suggestions -- and unlike War for Cybertron -- Dark of the Moon will tie-in with the upcoming Michael Bay movie, serving as a prelude to the film's narrative.
The Transformers: Dark of the Moon game allows players to fight through the epic battles on Earth that will shape the events of the upcoming film. Armed with a brand-new gameplay mechanic, fans will harness the power of Stealth Force to instantly convert to a third, hybrid state that combines the weapons and firepower of robot mode with the agility and manoeuvrability of vehicle mode. Set in unique environments around the world such as the Jungles of South America, Siberian military facilities, Detroit Cityscapes and more, the game lets players assume the roles of a diverse roster of everyone’s favourite TRANSFORMERS from the movie through a heart-pounding campaign to save mankind. Additionally, fans can play the game with or against their friends through intense, online multiplayer game modes as their favourite iconic characters.
Also unlike Transformers: War for Cybertron, it appears that the new game will not be released on PC, with only Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, DS and 3DS platforms having been announced. Check out the press release
