Transformers: Devastation trailer highlights Autobots' crazy combos

A new trailer shows off how each character will have their own movesets as they fight against the Decepticons.


Platinum Games revealed Transformers: Devastation at E3 2015 with fans of the iconic series getting a taste of the upcoming game in its first trailer a month later. Today, Activision has revealed some more information regarding the game as well as offering a new trailer that takes a look at the title’s playable characters.

In a post on PlayStation.Blog, lead producer Robert Conkey reveals Platinum Games’ attempt to capture each character’s personality with a fighting style that would complement them best. For example, Bumblebee is able to attack at a quicker rather than the other Autobots, although he isn’t very powerful. Wheeljack uses his mechanical ingenuity to perform ranged attacks. Grimlock -- well... Grimlock appears to do whatever the hell he wants, which is the Grimlock way.

In addition to showing off each characters’ abilities and movesets, Activision is also announcing those who pre-order Transformers: Devastation will receive a DLC bundle that includes six digital goodies. The bundle includes three specialized character skins for Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldfire as well as three unique pieces of equipment:

  • The Dark Star Saber - a fiercely intimidating blade that radiates waves of dark energy with every swing.
  • The Photon Disruptor - an incredibly powerful, shotgun-style weapon that has a short range but deals huge amounts of area damage.
  • The Golden Hunter - a pair of blaster pistols that causes enemies to drop credits when attacked.

Transformers: Devastation is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on October 6.
