Transformers Devastation E3 2015 Trailer: G1 Goes Platinum
Platinum Games is making the first generation of the Autobot-Decepticon war come to life in the impressive-looking Transformers Devastation.
Optimus, Megatron and even Devastator are back in this stellar trailer for Transformers Devastation, which pays homage to the series' G1 era. Since the Bayonetta team at Platinum Games is working on Transformers Devastation, you can expect that the third-person melee and shooting mechanics will be top notch. As you would expect, transforming will help traverse the level and shoot at enemies from afar, but it's also a major part of combat. As you continue to perform a combo on your opponent, they get slightly knocked back with each hit. You can transform in-between your attacks in order to close the distance without ever breaking your melee combo. Likewise, you can zip around in your transformed state for maneuverability and to ram into your opponents to immediately transform and begin your melee attacks. Watching the combat system in action just looks ridiculously smooth and makes it seem like the 1984 series has come back to life with a modern overhaul.
The single-player campaign of the story will focus on the Autobots, but you'll have the ability to play as the Decepticons as well. Of course, Peter Cullen will be voicing Optimus Prime, Frank Welker is doing Megatron and Soundwave and plenty of other iconic voices will return. There will only be five playable Autobots, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Sideswipe and Wheeljack, but that's because Platinum Games wants to focus on perfecting the experiences of each of these five particular heroes and to really make each character's gameplay styles different.
We've seen Bay butcher the franchise and plenty of Transformers games come and go throughout the years, but we can't wait for Devastation to transform and roll out to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC this fall.
