Demonstrating that they really, genuinely have paid attention to the source material,. Platinum have put out a new trailer for Transformers: Devastation showing off the various play styles of the five playable characters. And whilst there are some similarities, there are a large number of unique twists to each of them. Grimlock, for example, wades in and pounds the shit out of everything in his way, whilst Wheeljack hangs back and relies on his technical expertise.
To add to the fun, we have a few pre-order bonuses that have been confirmed for the PlayStation release. No clear indication if the Steam version will also have them, but it seems likely, as there is no reason to not include them. They don't really sound all that interesting to me personally, but some may be won over by them. These include three character skins by the names of Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldfire, and three in game weapons which sound a little more enticing.
The Dark Star Saber is a fiercely intimidating blade that radiates waves of dark energy with every swing.
The Photon Disruptor is an incredibly powerful, shotgun-style weapon that has a short range but deals huge amounts of area damage.
The twin Golden Hunter is a pair of blaster pistols that causes enemies to drop credits when attacked.
Transformers: Devastation is currently set for release on October 6th across PlayStation 3/4 and PC.
