Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer reveals mid-2012 release date

The new trailer for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron certainly isn't one of those irritating clips where you get half the story in 90 seconds. Like the game, this video jumps straight into the action at the conclusion of the predecessor - so if you can discern much from the clip other than “badass giant robots are giant and badass,” more power to you indeed. Well, there's also the strong implication that the game will have plenty of varied robot-annihilation and look just fine while doing it, which is always nice – and the clip's most useful fact, an August 28 release date for the game.

If this video's left you with a few blank spots re: Fall of Cybertron, we've 15 things you need to know about the title. When we saw the last Transformers: Fall of Cybertron trailer deconstructed by director Dave Tieger, he promised the game would take pains to have you caring deeply about giant brawling heaps of metal: does this clip bring a lump to your throat, or will you be requiring a little more persuading?

    There are only a few games this year that I'm beyond able to wait for, and this is one of them. Love, love, LOVED War for Cybertron, so you can bet I'm picking this one up on day one.

    Love it. War for Cybertron was for me the only good thing to come out of the Transformers "revival" (well, that and the Masterpiece figures). I'll pick this up, no question.

    This game is probably the only one that can pull off a dubstep trailer. Because dubstep is just the sound of a robot transforming.

    I already knew it was coming in august so the trailer was what Im happy for. Starts with inception like Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! which then goes into a cool mix. Optimus gets bitchslapped, then later(or before) jumps through spaaaaaace to try and stab megatron. Also theres bruticus and grimlock. Hope the space battle happen sooner rather than later or cybertron deteriorates throughout the game then you try and escape.

    Awesome, though the Trailer needs the music of Stan Bush.
