It’s rare when videogames get launch dates pushed up, but that is the case for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, which had its release date moved up a week to August 21.
If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s an upcoming third-person shooter that is a direct sequel to the incredibly popular 2010 game, Transformers: War for Cybertron. Spoilers ahoy… but that game ended as the Autobots struggled to defeat their mortal enemies the Decepticons on their home planet of Cybertron. This sequel will depict the final battle between the two robot factions, leading the Autobots to seek refuge in our galaxy (and the hands of Shia LaBeouf).
According to the announcement, “High Moon Studios has listened to the countless emails, tweets, user comments and Facebook posts from fans who are clamoring for the game to hit stores. They are so proud of their work that they cannot wait to get it into people’s hands the minute it’s ready.”
(Or, you know, it could be because perennial bestseller Madden ’13 is coming out August 28, their original release date…)
Alongside the announcement, the studio was kind enough to present a new trailer which has an in-game look at METROPLEX, the city-size Transformer:
When it launches, you can find Transformers: Fall of Cybertron on XBOX 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
