A new title in the Transformers is on the way to us all with the announcement we have for Transformers: Reactivate
More of the classics are coming back and with a bit of darkness, as we have an announcement for Transformers: Reactivate. A new title in the line that is coming from a studio that is known for more of the darker shooters out there. Splash Damage is behind this one and it looks like they are bringing that same grit from other titles into the Transformers IP. At least when it drops on the PC and Consoles out there in 2023. As long as you are in on being part of a Closed Beta as that is all that has been announced since The Game Awards dropped this little gem on us.
To mix things up a little bit for the Transformers IP, this will be a one to a four-player action game that will have us all in the roles of various Autobots we have grown up with. None of them are specifically called out here in the trailer, but it definitely looks like it will not be on the cartoony side of the looks and will allow us to shift between the forms seamlessly in the mix of the action. All as we help the Transformers battle The Legion out there as the greatest threat that they have ever faced. That always seems to be the way these things go, but it would be nice to see if we could get some of the Decepticons in the mix of playable to show off how insane this new enemy truly is. We will have to see when the beta kicks off and then the full game launches.
