Ships Ahoy - Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Activision announces that Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is now available in North American stores for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, hopefully delivered by trucks that then became giant robots. Here's word on the "deep, emotional tale" in the latest game based on the toy/cartoon/movie franchise:

Fight through some of the most pivotal moments in the TRANSFORMERS saga with Activision Publishing, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI)TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON video game available now at retail outlets nationwide. Created by acclaimed developer High Moon Studios and serving as the official canon story for Hasbro's legendary TRANSFORMERS property, TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON gives gamers the opportunity to experience the final, darkest hours of the civil war between the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS, eventually leading to the famed exodus from their dying home planet. With the stakes higher and scale bigger than ever, players will embark on an action-packed journey through a post-apocalyptic, war-torn world designed around each character's unique abilities and alternate forms, including GRIMLOCK's fire-breathing DINOBOT form and the renegade COMBATICONS combining into the colossal BRUTICUS character.

"This is where it all began, it's the epic story of the TRANSFORMERS leaving their home planet," said Peter Della Penna, Studio Head, High Moon Studios. "From day one, we knew we were going to create the definitive TRANSFORMERS video game, a phenomenal action experience combining a deep, emotional tale with one-of-a-kind gameplay that lets you convert from robot to vehicle whenever you want."

"This is the fall of their homeworld, and by far the biggest scale we've ever seen in a TRANSFORMERS game," said Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Marketing, Hasbro. "We could not be any happier teaming up with the great talent at High Moon Studios to deliver the official backstory of the colossal battles that led to the TRANSFORMERS' exodus from Cybertron. We can't wait to have fans and gamers experience this amazing title."

The port of the first game was pretty barebones, gonna skip this until its on extreme sale. The last time they didn't even offer key rebindings and they locked out the config files.

My thoughts exacly Verno,

Iím a little concerned about the lack of Keyboard remapping. I had to use Auto Hot Key for the last game. Itís a work around, but never should be a final solution. Devs really need to pull their heads out between the cracks, because this is getting very old and all to failure with games these days.
