New Clip and Characters Revealed for ‘Transformers: War for Cybertron’

In our coverage of Transformers: War for Cybertron,  we’ve brought you multiplayer footage, character reveals and developer videos. Today will be no exception as we bring you the first behind the scenes story trailer which reveals two key plot points in not just the game, but the Transformers universe.

The origins of two of the most iconic and pivotal partnerships in Autobot and Decepticon lore will be explored for the first time in addition to the more obvious tales players are expecting to experience, the rise to power of both Optimus Prime and Megatron.

Take a look below if you are as excited as we are to see how the beginnings of each of these campaigns look to play out. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Transformers post without the reveal of more characters being added to the game’s already impressive roster.

Class: Soldier
Chassis: Car
Primary Weapon: Neutron Repeater
Abilities: Whirlwind, Dash
Description: Sideswipe is built for speed. Whether that’s in combat or out of it, he moves fast. Very fast. He enjoys the thrill of battle, but more for the sport and competitiveness than the end goal. Being very competitive, Sideswipe will do anything he can to win, cheating notwithstanding. Nothing is out of the question when everything is on the line. Some call him reckless and brash, but he does what it takes to win. Every time.

Class: Scientist
Chassis: Jet
Primary Weapon: Neutron Repeater
Abilities: Spawn sentry turret, Barrier
Description: Serving alongside Starscream and Skywarp, Thundercracker is a part of the main force of the flying fleet of the Decepticons. Thundercracker despises those that cannot take flight and views himself as being superior to those that cannot. He reigns supreme in the air, having excellent skills in aerial combat and maneuvers. Thundercracker sometimes questions the Decepticon cause, but imagining Megatron’s wrath always quiets his discontent.

Class: Scientist
Chassis: Jet
Primary Weapon: Neutron Repeater
Abilities: Spawn sentry turret, Hover
Description: Jetfire is dedicated to the pursuit of science and believes technology will ultimately give the Autobots victory over the Decepticons. Jetfire keeps himself completely cutting edge and up to date, making him the fastest Autobot ever created. Jetfire became an Autobot after disagreeing with the methods used by the Decepticons and Starscream in particular.
