Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Announced
Activision and Hasbro today announced Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a video game complement to Paramount Pictures’ upcoming film, Transformers: Age of Extinction, set to release this June. The third-person action adventure game will be releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and PC.
Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming Transformers live-action film and Activision’s Transformers: War for Cybertron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron titles, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons throughout the single-player campaign.
Players will also see the return of the fan-favorite multiplayer mode, Escalation, which delivers wave-based, survival-style gameplay for up to four players online cooperatively. It features new, upgradeable defense systems, recognizable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters from past and present. Additionally, a new leveling system transforms single-player and multiplayer into one unified, persistent character development path. Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks awards and tactical loadout choices – including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities and consumable bonuses – for use throughout the entire game.
