The trailer for
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron managed to distinguish itself as
Transformers clips go. Eschewing very much actual transforming, the
clip's focus on the robots themselves lent a surprisingly human tone
to what's literally just 90 seconds of bits of metal smashing into
each other. How'd High Moon Studios get you to care about the
connection between two automobiles with ideas above their station?
High Moon's Dave Tieger,
Game Director on the title, promises that you've seen far from all
Fall of Cybertron has to offer in this trailer, which seems like a
valid promise: by delivering a clip that's heavy on moody action and
battlefield pathos, the studio's sidestepped the common tendency to
reveal everything in the pre-release campaign. Then again, with an
entire year to go until the game's released, there's still plenty of
time to drip-feed further glimpses of what Fall of Cybertron has in store.
