Activision has today announced that it’s bringing Transformers: Dark of the Moon to the Wii. The game is currently in development at Behaviour Interactive, and is of course based on Hasbro’s legendary Transformers property. The game thrusts players directly into an original prologue storyline as they get to experience the ultimate battle between the Autobots and Decepticons that leads into this summer’s most anticipated blockbuster film and reveals another face of evil, Shockwave.
In the game, players will be fighting through the epic battles on Earth that shape the events of the upcoming film. Armed with a brand new gameplay mechanic, fans will harness the power of Stealth Force to instantly convert to a third, hybrid state that combines the weapons and firepower of robot mode with the agility and manoeuvrability of vehicle mode. In the course of the game, fans will get to visit unique environments around the world such as the South American jungle, Siberian military facilities, Detroit cityscapes and much more. They’ll also be able to assume the roles of a diverse roster of everyone’s favourite Transformers from the movie, through a heart-pounding single-player campaign to save mankind, and also in intense online multiplayer game modes where they can play as their favourite character.
The game has no official release date as yet, but the movie is out this July, so expect the game to emerge around the same time.
