Arise, Hideous Prime, And Light Our Darkest Multiplayer Hour

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron's online multiplayer mode allows players to create their own bastardized versions of classic characters, from a guy that looks vaguely like Warpath to a puke green and brass Optimus Prime. customisation, Starscream? This is bad comedy.

Despite earning Evan's approval during his recent hands-on at Comic-Con 2012, Fall of Cybertron's standard online multiplayer isn't doing anything for me, mainly because I realise that within a week of release every match will consist of large groups of guys and girls much better at playing than I am.

I'm more interested in the return of War for Cybertron's co-op Escalation Mode.

It's four teammates facing off against waves of enemies in an ever-expanding battlefield, where one round's safe stop is the next rounds breezy mecha gazebo.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron hits stores August 21.

    Who's the big destroyed guy it the background ment to be?

    I'm more excited about this game than any other big release for the rest of the year.

    ^ War of Cybertron had a multiplayer that lasted all the way up until the release of it's sequel. Not just the hardcore crowd who activated Prime Mode and levelled up all over again either. There are always new players jumping in too. Come join us!

    I can't seem to get online on my PS3 ever sicne the earthquake/tsunami or whatever it was.
