Transformers War for Cybertron Multiplayer Customisation Trailer

Yes that's right, you read the title correctly. The latest trailer from High Moon Studios shows off the fact that you can customise your Transformer, to an extent, in their upcoming game War For Cybertron. The trailer shows the ability to choose your weapons, abilities and upgrades as well as the color scheme of your Transformer. Fans shouldn't get too excited though, the vehicle your Transformer transforms into seems tied to its class.

Those classes are Soldier, Scout, Scientist and Leader. Each has a unique ability like invisibility, healing and hover. Each class then has it's own kill streaks. That's right kill streaks are coming to Transformers. The Soldier has three kill streaks at 3, 5 and 7 kills. They are Ammo Matrix (refills your teams ammo), Electromagnetic Pulse (jams enemy abilities for a period of time) and Omega Missile (a guided missile capable of mass destruction). The Scientist has kill streaks including Health Matrix (teammates receive health for every kill), Overshield Matrix (teammates receive an overshield) and Nucleon Shock Cannon (spawns a usable rocket turret). The Scout has kill streaks including Orbital Beacon (displays enemy location), Energon Recharger (health recharges consistently for a period of time) and Orbital Beacon 2.0 (causes a level wide EMP blast and tags all enemies with a target marker). Finally the Leader class has kill streaks including Intercooler (ability recharge time is decreased), P.O.K.E 2.0 (melee attack that causes enemies to explode) and Thermomine Respawner (spawns a trail of Thermomines).

The trailer certainly makes the multiplayer look fun and frenetic. Having a whole bunch of people transforming on the fly, jumping in an out of battles certainly sounds awesome and epic as long as the servers don't suffer from too much lag. The kill streaks also seem quite well balanced and I'm kind of glad you are limited to only three for each.

The game is seriously shaping up to be one of my most anticipated games. Every bit of footage I see impresses me and makes the possibility of a good Transformers game seem that much closer. The wait is almost over as the game is set for release on the 22nd of June 2010.
