A free multiplayer demo of Transformers: War for Cybertron is now available to Xbox Live Gold members as a 789MB download.

Developed by High Moon Studios, the robotic third-person shooter is slated to hit North American retailers in PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 form on June 22, though the developer recently told Kotaku that the demo will only be available on Xbox 360.

Seperate versions of the game are also coming to Wii and Nintendo DS the same day, though they were handled by different developers and feature different content.

    Can someone tell me what this is like? I heard an interview with the developer and it sounds like they really put some effort into making this decent.

      Just played one game of conquest on the game, has an Unreal Tournament feeling about it which I think is a good thing. You can pick and alter your loadouts before the game starts and it's class based. I'm not sure if it will stand up against all the big shooters that are out already, but this is quite a lot of fun and i'll probably pick it up on or shortly after release

        Can you run around like a maniac and transform mid-air? And is it fun when you do? I can imagine chasing someone while shooting at them, jumping off stuff, falling down cliffs etc. all while you're transforming in places where it'd give you an advantage.

          Yeah, it's pretty much Gears with giant robots and the movement is a lot easier.. I got an awesome kill earlier where i jumped backwards off this ledge whilst being chased, transformed into a tank in midair and blew this guy up.. It made me laugh and pre-order it =)

          Transforming is a huge advantage as scout.. stealth, gank someone, transform and book it before some soldier bladestorm.. I mean whirlwinds your ass.. This game is like Halo Menus + MW2 Perks + GoW 3rd Person + WoW abilities.

          Basically its everything awesome with giant fking robots.

      Is this the same developer that made the crappy previous one?

      Its like gears of war if gears wasn't retarded and you were playing as giant robots that can transform into tanks. The controls are solid and ganking people as a cloaked scout and then transforming and hightailing it out of there is too much fun.

      It plays like a third person Halo where you can transform into vehicles at will and you get powers for classes like in Team Fortress 2 and with the leveling/perk/loadout system from Call of Duty

      Yeah, I'm pre-ordering this shit.
