Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron On PC Has Problems, High Moon Working On It

The singleplayer portion of the PC version of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is pretty great, capturing all of the action and adventure of the console versions aptly. The online multiplayer, on the other hand, isn’t so hot. High Moon and friends are working to make it better.

Connecting to multiplayer is hard. Getting together with your friends is tough. Staying with your friends is tough. It’s as if the Xbox 360 architecture, which limits the number of people that one can have on their friends list, made it into the PC version, and if friends aren’t on your list, good luck playing with them. Others report sound issues, missing animations, and various other problems that occur when you hop on the PC train as late as Fall of Cybertron did.

After a little poking about at the behest of fans like Twitter’s GaemOevr, Activision passed along the following statement, also posted on High Moon Studios’ blog.

Activision and High Moon Studios are firmly dedicated to providing a fun multiplayer experience in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. We’ve seen some concerns from PC fans about the online experience and have been working hard with internal and external teams to address any issues. These actions include the following:

· Near launch date, we caught and immediately fixed a bug that dealt with PC host migration.

· High Moon recently released a patch for the console versions of the game that included a number of small changes to the dynamic gameplay balancing and tuning, and these changes are currently being tested for the PC. We are working hard to get this finished for PC gamers in the next week.

· We are also monitoring the support web site very closely here: Any users who have additional inquiries should visit this link and rest assured that we are looking at all user comments and questions.

Well thank goodness they caught that bug in the PC migration — around the time of launch. Not actually a good sign, but as long as they’re working to make it better and not say, giving up and hiding (War for Cybertron), then we’re on the right track.


  • Transformers isnt the only one. SLEEPING DOGS on PC has a major problem I’ve just hit. The 360 controller just stops working. It crashes out your keyboard too. Wierd thing is, it’s only ingame? If you press Escape you can control the menus, even WITH the controller? You just cant do anything ingame? It really blows… wtf is with these games, these awesome games, having such shit quality control?

    • I’ve played Sleeping Dogs for about 30 hours so far and I have not had one problem with my keyboard or Xbox controller…

    • Maybe it’s a new form of DRM – Bug the game and make the update only available through Steam.

      Jokes aside it’s no surprise PC users get the short hand when it comes to video game quality; publishers don’t like you.

    • i have had the exact problem,
      i find that shutting the game down and restarting it will fix the problem.

      • Hasn’t worked for me yet. It’s happening on a mission with Jackie. The dockyard one. Checked forums and it’s a very common one. Going to do the mission with mouse and kb (ugh) and see if it works then…

      • Damn, old post from the past… yeah turns out it was a pathing problem in the game. They released a patch to fix it. The game had jumped into cutscene mode but the cutscene had not activated. It disabled the controller ingame but not in the menu, giving the impression the controller was fubar.

  • i cant get my controller to work its a xbox 360 for windows plz help
    in the controller menu it says controller error other games work just fine
