Combaticons Combine To Form Bruticus In Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron

What could be bigger than a new Transformers game featuring Grimlock, king of the Dinobots? How about five robots combining into one mechanical titan? According to GameStop, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron finally gives us combiners.

Despite featuring several characters named after members of the Aerialbots and Stunticon teams, High Moon Studios has shied away from including combiner teams in their Transformers games of the past. In fact, I can't recall a single game based on the franchise that saw a player taking control of a gestalt character, either in part or as a whole.

Judging by GameStop's product description for next year's Fall of Cybertron, it looks like not only will the Combaticon-formed Bruticus make an appearance, he'll be a playable character.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron transports you to the final days of the planet Cybertron where you will experience the darkest hours of the apocalyptic war between the Autobots and Decepticons. Embark on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a wide range of missions and massive environments designed around each character's unique abilities. With the stakes higher than ever before, you play as a variety of Transformers, including Grimlock's nearly indestructible T-Rex form and the legendary Combaticons forming into the colossal Bruticus.

Formed from five military vehicles (Hey, a space shuttle can be a military vehicle) Bruticus is the Decepticons' answer to the Autobots' Defensor, a giant robot built from five emergency vehicles. In cartoon continuity the Combaticons were brought to life by Starscream in an attempt to wrest control of the Decepticons from Megatron. Then again, everything Starscream did was an attempt to wrest control of the Decepticons from Megatron.

More details on Fall of Cybertron are expected with this month's issue of Game Informer magazine.

    Hm. Given the scale of the original, you always ended up fighting something bigger/faster/stronger than you at the end of the level... I wonder just what the heck is going to be able to give Bruticus a run for his money...

    But at least this means we will most likely be getting Swindle as a playable character :D

    LOL, I wonder if they'll attempt to explain why on earth Grimlock is a T-Rex on Cybertron. Previously he's always been a tank in the pre-Earth stuff.

      I thought in G1 the dinobots were built on earth. But then he was a tank in the comics. I is confuse.

    Next year can't come fast enough, maybe Superion too?

    I still remember pleding with my dad in the early 90's for combaticons to no avail!
