There's a New Transformers Game Coming, and Grimlock's Coming With ItS

Following up on the success of Transformers: War for Cybertron, Activision and High Moon Studios return to the planet of the Autobots and Decepticons next year with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, and they're bringing the king of the Dinobots with them.

The original headline of this article was simply "Motherfucking Grimlock", but I decided to err on the side of being informative. Now that we've gotten that over with, it's motherfucking Grimlock! The leader of the Dinobots (and the Autobots on several occasions, depending on the continuity you subscribe to) takes his rightful place by Optimus Prime's side on the cover of next month's Game Informer, on store shelves October 14.

The game follows the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons to its fateful conclusion: the exodus of both from their dying planet. How High Moon Studios handles that exodus remains to be seen. Will we get the Ark and Nemesis shootout in deep space from the cartoon? The leaving a few good bots behind storyline from the IDW comic book series? Something entirely new?

I am obviously way too excited about this. Here's a quote.

"High Moon Studios is an extremely talented development team having raised the bar of gameplay and Transformers authenticity in their games," said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is an extraordinary project both for the studio and the Transformers gaming legacy - the stakes are higher and the scale much larger than ever before, and we absolutely cannot wait for fans to see all the new characters and epic action that awaits them."

There, all better. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is slated for release sometime next year for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will feature motherfucking Grimlock.
