As another Transformers flick looms on the horizon, another video game adaptation is born at Activision. This time around, hopefully the game won’t suck as it’s being developed by High Moon Studios, the same talented bunch behind War of Cybertron.
Here’s the skinny from the official press release:
The Transformers: Dark of the Moon game allows players to fight through the epic battles on Earth that will shape the events of the upcoming film. Armed with a brand-new gameplay mechanic, fans will harness the power of Stealth Force to instantly convert to a third, hybrid state that combines the weapons and firepower of robot mode with the agility and maneuverability of vehicle mode.
Set in unique environments around the world such as the Jungles of South America, Siberian military facilities, Detroit Cityscapes and more, the game lets players assume the roles of a diverse roster of everyone's favorite Transformers from the movie through a heart-pounding campaign to save mankind.
Additionally, fans can play the game with or against their friends through intense, online multiplayer game modes as their favorite iconic characters.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon, the video game is being developed for the Xbox360 and PS3 and will probably release sometime in July 2011 to coincide with the movie’s release. Development of the DS, 3DS and Wii versions will be handled by Behaviour Interactive.
