Oh my god, look at their giant heads. They're so huge! This is what classic Transformers characters will look like in Transformers: Battle Tactics, a turn-based tactical combat game coming soon to iOS and Android devices.

Huge! Heads! Ahem.

Transformers: Battle Tactics is a free-to-play mobile game coming soon from Hasbro and DeNA. Players can collect over 75 classic Autobots and Decepticons, including some from the pages of IDW's Combiner Wars series. Each character has its own stats and abilities which change based on whether they're in robot or vehicle form, because it's called Transformers.

Once collected, players can assemble teams of 'Bots and 'Cons the likes of which has never been seen (probably), and use that team to participate in a lengthy single-player story mode or on the field of player-versus-player battle.

On the upside, Transformers. Also, giant heads. On the downside, DeNA is not shy about taking the "free" out of "free-to-play." Nostalgia shall win the day in my case, but your mileage may vary.

Transformers: Battle Tactics is coming to Android and iOS in early 2015. Interested parties can pre-register for the game at its official website in order to earn special in-game items when there's an in-game to get them in.
