Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Gets New Launch Date, Trailer

High Moon Studios usually makes some damn good games. You can thank them for creating a few of the best movie-to-game adaptations of the generation.

And they're so excited about their latest that they just couldn't wait; they had to move the original release date up by a week. Now, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is slated to hit store shelves in the US on August 21 instead of August 28.

To celebrate the early release, they've tossed over a brand new trailer, which features plenty of flashy action and great looks at the city-sized transformer, METROPLEX. If you're unfamiliar with the series, Cybertron is where the Transformers used to live in relative peace and harmony, until Megatron betrayed everybody and a civil war broke out between the Autobots and the Decepticons. ...it's a pretty simple story, but remember, this started out as a cartoon.

Sweet. I remember Metroplex as a kid. I think he was the last of the HUGE first generation Transformers ( or close to it)
Omega Supreme was another huge one. Back in the day I was a Transformers nut. I watched the cartoon shows, stole the toys from my friends (multiple times. Got in big trouble each time) helped my brother mow lawns to earn money for them. Yep good stuff.

I actually have a big Optimus Prime figure. One that mimics the original, just bigger.

dont forget tripticon. he was a big decepticon. might have been the only big decepticon.

are you talking about the big die cast optimus they put out for the 25th anniversary? that one is an epic transformer. he was expensive but soooo worth it.

I have a legitimate question. Two things, if anyone knows why did megatron betray cybertron, and second. I thought the reason they were in vehicles was disguises for people aliens on the planet earth.

Why are they not just robots on cybertron?

Trailer looked wicked either way.

Vehicle modes were for Transportation on Cybertron and ironically when they landed on earth, humans were using machines for transportation. So as a result, we have transformers who turn into jets and automobiles. Tbis is hkw they explained it on G1Ttranformers. Haha. Makes sense to a certain degree, but still.

it depends on which version of transformers your going from on why megatron does what he does. in beast wars megatron was looking for more power and stole golden discs with the location of massive power (energon) deposits.

what it generally comes down to with megatron is that he thinks he is the most powerful and should rule all.

as for the changing into vehicles, on cybertron they mostly used the other modes in their day to day lives. as most autobots were workers they took cars and general purpose forms. decepticons were military purposed and generally took more powerful combat forms.

my only problem is why do they have dinobots on cybertron before they have been to earth to find out about dinosaurs?

i also recommend checking out transformers prime on netflix. really good show if you can get past the annoying human characters.

the dinobots are in this one. you play as grimlock for a while and build like a rage meter that turns you into the trex form.
