Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer is both grim and Grimlock-filled

We couldn’t be more excited a sequel to Transformers: War for Cybertron is at last seeing the light of day. When it was finally announced, we hadn’t been that happy since Optimus Prime’s most recent resurrection. Now we have our first real footage of the game, and while it might be a little too dramatic in its coloring, we can’t fault a video with Dinobots.

Things appear pretty dire on Cybertron, which isn’t surprising as War for Cybertron ended with the Autobots planning their escape from the crumbling world via a familiar looking spacecraft. Of course, just because that ship looked like the one from the first episode of the 80s cartoon doesn’t mean these games take place in the same universe, as G1 Transformers fans will note that Dinobots like Grimlock from the end of the vid weren’t created until after the Transformers woke up on earth. That means this new timeline is unpredictable, just the way we like it. But what other Transformers do you hope get remade in Fall of Cybertron? Hot Rod? The Insectictons? Wheelie? (We’re joking about that last one.)

    Wheeljack is a deffo for me, also like to see Kup and Tracks from the Autobots and Astro Train and Cyclonus for the Decepticons. Some of the combiners would be nice too, Aerial Bots-Superion, Constructicons-Devastator etc if they are done well

    I'd be the happiest person ever if Wheeljack, Mirage, the constructicons and maybe a proper role for Shockwave not just multiplayer. Though if I had to have one it'd definitely be Wheeljack.

    Not Hotrod. He's a dillhole

    I heard about this game first (grows hipster beard) so that makes me ultra awesome. Plus, I hope there's no Hotrod in there. Please.

    Hope its as good or better than war for cybertron was.

    You sometimes wonder why they call them teasers, then you realize the boner you have is evidence enough.

    Erm only in the cartoon were the Dinobots created on earth. In the comic they were the autobots black ops team that remained on cybertron while the other went to earth.

    Nemesis Prime, Galvatron, and Ultra-Magnus. Plus some Beast Wars. I wish they'd make an appearance

    Blade. I really want to see the Autobot Blade, particularly if they make him as a badass ninja.

    If they could somehow fit Unicron into one of these games then I would cry rainbows.

    I really wish your video player told me that the video was unavailable before it loaded the ad. If I hear Kanye West say "Power" one more time I will cry bile. Cool trailer though.
