The latest version of the Cybertronians to get a video game adaptation, Transformers: Earthspark – Expedition hits consoles and PC this year.
TRANSFORMERS: EARTHSPARK – Expedition puts fans behind the wheel of the iconic hero Bumblebee, as he drifts, drives, and fights his way across a new but familiar world. The game aims to faithfully recreate the environment and feel of the ground-breaking animated series, as Bumblebee sets off on his own adventure to face a mysterious threat from his past and stop the series villain Dr. Meridian, aka “Mandroid”, from recovering missing pieces of an ancient technology.
As part of this action-packed journey, players will be able to freely explore three massive biomes and complete quests from their Terran allies, the first TRANSFORMERS robots to be born on Earth, and new original characters from the TV series. To complete his mission Bumblebee will also fight against and alongside fan-favorite legacy TRANSFORMERS bots including Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Skullcruncher, Nova Storm, and Skywarp.Outright Games press release
According to the press release, Transformers: Earthspark – Expedition will put a focus on action and exploration, with a side helping of customization. The game is also designed to be re-playable, with what sounds like an almost ‘metroidvania’ approach, encouraging players to go back to it, to open up “secrets in previously inaccessible areas”. Younger fans need not worry about it being overwhelming though, as this one’s built to be “accessible” for all fans, regardless of age.
Look for Transformers: Earthspark – Expedition to hit consoles and the PC some time later this year.
