ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. AND PLATINUMGAMES INC. CHANGE THE FIGHT IN TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION
New action-brawler video game lets fans experience the TRANSFORMERS like never before
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – June 16, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), today announced it is teaming up with acclaimed development studio PlatinumGames Inc. to release a groundbreaking new game starring the TRANSFORMERS Generations characters. Based on Hasbro’s colossal entertainment franchise, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is a third-person action-brawler game with a breathtaking comic book-inspired visual style.
Forged with PlatinumGames’ gift for fast-paced action and mesmerizing art design, TRANSFORMERS: Devastation harnesses the unique abilities of its heroes to convert from robot to vehicle form to extraordinary effect. In this incredibly dynamic, combo-fueled experience, players battle as one of five AUTOBOTS – OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, SIDESWIPE, WHEELJACK and GRIMLOCK. Throughout the game, players unlock new skills, forge new weapons, and augment their characters to battle against the vicious DECEPTICONS, including MEGATRON and the powerful combiner DEVASTATOR.
PlatinumGames utilizes cel-shaded artwork to create contemporary versions of the bold, brightly colored designs of the original TRANSFORMERS characters. The game features a story inspired by the IDW comic book universe and includes the talents of legendary voice actors like Dan Gilvezan as BUMBLEBEE, Frank Welker as MEGATRON and SOUNDWAVE, Gregg Berger as GRIMLOCK, and Peter Cullen as OPTIMUS PRIME.
TRANSFORMERS: Devastation is expected to arrive later this year on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC via Steam.

In that short period, EA tried to launch new IP's, but for some reason, they weren't very succesfull. (4 Hours ago)
@Tinks: Dead Space 1 was a good start but with way too much backtracking. Dead Space 2 was better, but was less tension. DS3 was last shot at trying to make it into a profitable franchise. (4 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: That doesn't really make a lot of sense in the context of GTA:O because all of the core content is free, but selling currency is how they make money. (5 Hours ago)
Dead Space 1 and 2 were great I agree. 3 shouldn't have killed that franchise. RIP Visceral (5 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Rockstar didn't share any information on the new edition. Just that it's for current gen and PS4 pro and X1X (6 Hours ago)
@droezelke: what are they adding to it? all the online stuff? so it's just all unlocked from the get-go? (6 Hours ago)
