Activision Publishing, Inc. has released a new behind-the-scenes video for its highly anticipated, intense action-brawler, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation, featuring exclusive insights from developer PlatinumGames.
In this latest video, PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Kurooka, director Kenji Saito and Activision producer Robert Conkey explore how TRANSFORMERS: Devastation combines the exhilarating world of the TRANSFORMERS Generations story universe with the one-of-a-kind style of PlatinumGames. Capturing the Nlook and feel of the iconic robots in disguise meant recreating little details, like their signature metallic sheen. But it also required nailing the lifelike speed and explosive force of their every move, which fit perfectly with PlatinumGames’ flair for big gameplay and visuals.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation features five unique playable heroes – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK – each of whom can dish out huge, free-flowing combos in gorgeous, cel-shaded 3D. The complete adventure includes a gripping story campaign pitting the AUTOBOTS against the DECEPTICONS to decide the fate of Earth, as well as five fine-tuned difficulty levels and a hardcore challenge mode with 50 bonus missions.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to launch on Oct. 6 on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC via Steam. It is rated T (Teen) by the ESRB. For more information, please visit www.TransformersGame.com and www.facebook.com/TransformersGame.
