Activision Publishing, Inc. and High Moon Studios tapped Digital Domain and Mothership Director Neil Huxley to create the new teaser trailer for the highly anticipated TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON video game that premiered Monday, June 4, on SpikeTV’s GT.TV. Picking up where the first teaser (December 2011) ended, the new :90 short delivers a fast-paced, high-impact battle sequence revealing new hero characters including fan favorite METROPLEX.
Featuring characters from Hasbro’s iconic TRANSFORMERS brand, the piece opens as the AUTOBOTS are locked in battle with the DECEPTICONS. GRIMLOCK is joined in combat against BRUTICUS by two new DINOBOTS, SWOOP and SNARL, as OPTIMUS PRIME is suffering at the hands of MEGATRON, SHOCKWAVE and STARSCREAM. Just as MEGATRON comes in for the final blow, OPTIMUS PRIME unleashes the colossal METROPLEX, who is the size of an entire city. METROPLEX heeds the call of the AUTOBOTS, powering himself with the last of the planet’s ENERGON to offer the first indication that the tides of this war may shift.
