What do we know about Transformers: War for Cybertron? We know about the two different storylines, the exclusive characters, a story based around the original epic cartoon’s story-line, and the 3 player co-op in the campaign. But when Games Radar sat down for a demo of War for Cybertron, they were introduced to a whole new surprise.

They jumped into a game type called Escalation and this is what they had to say about it...

First off we jumped into Escalation, Cybertron’s loving homage to Gears of War 2’s inventive and addicting Horde mode. The up-to-four-player co-op game can be played as either Autobot or Decepticon and focuses on stopping wave after tougher wave of enemies together for as long as you can, but the game has a class-based gameplay Gears doesn’t. From the hulking Soldier type to stealthy Scout type, plus the Scientist and Leader types, each has a different role to play in helping the team hold the fort with punishing melee or ranged attacks.

They go on in their article to talk about certain aspects taken from other games such as Left 4 Dead, and how teamwork is completely crucial in the game mode because of their health and ammo system.

I am a huge G1 Transformers fan, I am however on the fence a little about this game. I'm real intrested in seeing it and checking it out, but as most Transformers games go, they are no GoTY.

Also I think the slated shipping date for War of Cybertron is June 22, thats what I'm seeing over at GameStop.com right now.

You are right the release date is 6/22.

I too am a little skeptical about this one. But after hearing that there is a Create Your Own Transformer option and a horde mode, I am leaning a little more toward purchasing it. I just hope it doesn't promise a lot and end up like Armada. lol
