E3 2012: Metroplex Revealed in Fall of Cybertron!

06.07.2012 – The recently concluded Electronic Entertainment Expo or known as E3 has revealed several games from PC, online and gaming consoles.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron the sequel to the critically acclaimed “War For Cybertron” gave more anticipation besides having toys released early this year.

The videogame has pulled a big surprise in revealing another major character in Metroplex.

The Autobot’s last line of defense in the Generation One series has finally appeared in game’s official trailer. Bruticus was the tip of the iceberg when the military combiner was revealed in the very first game trailer. Then several toys where revealed during the New York Toy Fair which includes two color versions of Bruticus which was released under the Generations toyline. Of course the better subdued game based colors would turn out to be the SDCC 2012 exclusive as a box set.

We thought Bruticus was the giant robot the Dinobots would contend in the game, but after the recent E3’s revelation of Metroplex things started to look even bigger than we thought this game would be.

The Autobot City’s last appearance was from the original cartoons from the 1980s and for the latest series the name “Metroplex” was used to the Gigalonian giant in the 2005 series Transformers Cybertron which transforms into a “Sparkdrinker” construction mining vehicle. The Bucket-wheel excavator was the modern version of Metroplex.

In the videogame FoC, Metroplex was introduced in the latest trailer to the upcoming console game to be released on August 28, 2012. The massive Autobot City looks bigger than his original G1 counterpart.

IGN sat down with Matt Tieger game director to reveal more about the game play as well as the environment of the world of Cybertron during E3 2012. This game looks promising compared to the 2010 released “War for Cybertron” which was greatly improved with the character designs including the details of that alien planet.

Could Hasbro be producing a giant robot again? We haven’t seen any transforming cities lately since Unicron came out and got released several times in different toy incarnations.

Transfans right now can only hope to see this game come out in August, but can the toy version be far behind? Wishful thinking if ever Hasbro does have plans expect it to be in the Cyberverse scale just like the Optimus Maximus that we recently sighted being sold in Philippine retail stores.

Transformers: Fall of Cyberton the game from High Moon Studios and its going to be released officially on August 28, 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360. You can now pre-order this at the Transformers Game website.
