Superhero Hype has more details on the new Activision/Hasbro game Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, which was announced at Toy Fair 2014.
The game will combine the universe of the Michael Bay films with the "Cybertron universe" in the video games. It will feature over 40 playable characters and will get a release this June for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC from developer Edge of Reality. WayForward is planning a 3DS version.
SVP of Digital Gaming and Corporate Development, Mark Blecher, said: "Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is an arc between the Cybertron and Earth based worlds of this popular franchise. This year marks 30 incredible years of Transformers. This game tells another chapter in the Transformers story that all fans will love."
Here's a synopsis: Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming "Transformers" live-action film and Activision's Transformers: War for Cybertyron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron titles, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios' "Cybertron" entries in the highly-regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts.
