Ever since Transformers: Devastation was announced at this year’s E3, there has been quite a bit of excitement surrounding the game. On Tuesday, the game was officially released. Available on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and Xbox One the game’s story is part of the ongoing Combiner Wars arc and it was developed by Platinum Games. There are five famous Autobots that players can take control of as they battle Decepticons such as Megatron, the constructobots and of course the giant robot they can combine into in Devastator.
Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Wheeljack and Grimlock can all be used in the game and they can also be upgraded while using more than 150 upgradeable weapons. One of the things that has fueled excitement over this game is the fact that the graphics style is nearly identical to the one used in the old 1980’s cartoon. Those who are fans of the Transformers movies of the last few years (assuming there are some out there) won’t be finding the Autobots and Decepticons they know. Those who are fans of the animated film from over a decade ago will be plenty happy though.
The biggest question the game is going to have to answer is whether nostalgia will make the title worth the $49.99 price tag it comes along with. It certainly looks pretty, as the developers have stated it will run at a consistent 1080p/60 FPS on PS4 and Xbox One. Check out the launch trailer for Transformers: Devastation and decide for yourself whether you’re going to purchase it for either the PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3.
