We knew it was coming. And recently, Activision opened their website, but took it back down. Now, it’s back up, and now, there’s an announcement with a trailer to mark the return of the TransFormers to every video game system known to man, woman, or child.
“The Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen videogame will give fans the chance to experience their favorite Autobots and Decepticons in an all-new, movie-inspired adventure packed with the thrilling and explosive action that only the Transformers universe can deliver,” said Rob Kostich, vice president of global brand management, Activision, Inc. “We are thrilled to announce that after experiencing the rush of commanding colossal robots on their own, players can challenge their friends for the first time ever in full-featured, blistering multiplayer action as their favorite characters.”
With so many different versions of the game being developed, there are a lot of companies to keep track of. Luxoflux is working on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, Beenox Studios is on the PC, Krome Studios is developing the Wii and PS2 SKUs, Vicarious Visions is on the Nintendo DS, and Savage Entertainment is tackling the PSP. The PS2 and Wii version will reportedly utilize “the individual platform features to deliver an intense third-person action adventure game that combines dynamic robot combat with arcade-style vehicle sequences and flight-based levels.” Meanwhile the DS will get one title for Autobots and one title for Decepticons, and the PSP will be a “fast-paced action arcade title.” — IGN
No release date has been specified, but right around the time the movie hits theaters on June 26th seems like a safe bet.
