Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
Plot / Synopsis

Fall of Cybertron continues the story from Transformers: War for Cybertron with the civil war between the Autobots and the Decepticons over control of their home world, Cybertron. The developer, High Moon Studios, hopes to show a darker tone than the original game; as Game Informer states, this game "changes and improves upon so many of the fundamental ideas that the developer considers the game a natural successor rather than a true sequel." Fall of Cybertron depicts the final battle between the two robot factions which results in the destruction of their home world, forcing the Autobots to seek refuge in our galaxy, the Milky Way. Characters expected to appear in the game include: Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Grimlock, Ironhide, Jazz, Megatron, Blast Off, Brawl, Bruticus, Onslaught, Shockwave, Soundwave, Starscream, Swindle and Vortex.
