Transformers fans will be happy to see a new battle game is coming from Outright Games as Transformers Battlegrounds will arrive this Fall. The game is pretty much what you might expect, as UK developer Coatsink brings the legendary war between Autobots and Decepticons to life in a battler game that depicts the battle in a new way. According to the story, as the evil Megatron closes in on the Allspark, Bumblebee and the Autobots need a new commander to help save Earth. The game will have you team up as different members of both parties and head into battles that will talk place in familiar locations like Central City all the way to the vast reaches of space to battle on Cybertron. Which you can do in both single-player and multiplayer action with your friends as you can either relive classic fights from TV, film, and comics, or start new ones you've never seen before. We got the trailer for you below along with some screenshots and a couple of quotes from the announcement. The game will be released on October 23rd for PC and all three major consoles.
"The Transformers franchise is one of the most enduring and recognizable in the world of entertainment," said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games.
