Activision today revealed new in-game DLC for those who pre-order Transformers: Devastation , the upcoming third-person brawler from acclaimed action developer PlatinumGames Inc. All retail and digital pre-orders of TRANSFORMERS: Devastation will receive the following three character skins: NEMESIS PRIME, RED ALERT and GOLDFIRE.
Players will also receive three powerful weapons with their pre-order:
· The Dark Star Sabre, a fearsome sword which radiates waves of dark energy with every swing.
· The Photon Disruptor cannon for huge damage at short range.
· The twin Golden Hunter blaster pistols, which causes enemies to drop credits when attacked.
Activision also released a new behind-the-scenes video with the legendary voice of OPTIMUS PRIME, Peter Cullen. TRANSFORMERS: Devastation brings a new energy to Hasbro’s iconic Generations characters, but for Cullen, honouring the qualities that have made OPTIMUS PRIME a hero for audiences for over 30 years is still at the core of this new experience.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation combines PlatinumGames’ magnetic brand of fast-paced gameplay with beautiful 3D cel-shading for one gripping adventure. Five playable AUTOBOT heroes – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK – will battle MEGATRON and the vile DECEPTICONS in an original story from veteran TRANSFORMERS comic book writer Andy Schmidt.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is scheduled to launch on 9th October on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam. Pre-orders for the game are already available at many major retailers and on the PlayStation Store; Xbox Games Store pre-orders are expected to open in early September.
An interview with Peter Cullen, who voiced Optimus Prime for the 1980’s Cartoon was also released via YouTube.
