Transformers new game based on their favourite robots is on the horizon.  Activision Publishing, Inc. has announced that ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’ is currently in development by the critically acclaimed developers at High Moon Studios.  The new game is based on Hasbro’s legendary Transformers line and featuring a brand-new ‘Stealth Force’ conversion mode, the game propels players directly into an innovative prologue storyline to experience the ultimate battle between the Autobots and Decepticons.  This game will lead fans into the summer’s most anticipated blockbuster film and reveals another face of evil – Shockwave.

Although the previous two Transformers movie tie-ins have been varying degrees of 'NOT SO GOOD', last year's War For Cybertron was very good. It wasn't based on any specific version of the Transformers universe, but instead used elements from the cartoon, comics and films.  Transformers: ‘Dark of the Moon’ will be based directly on this summer's new movie, but it's certainly good news to find a top developers involved in making it. 

The existence of a tie-in has been known for some time, but only now has Activision officially announced the game. It'll be a prologue to the movie's storyline and the various robots will be showing off something called a 'Stealth Force' conversion mode.  

Paul Wright, Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties, Activision publishing said;
“We couldn’t be more excited to expand on the epic movie universe in the Transformers: Dark of the Moon game, and allow fans to experience the gripping events and back stories that occur right before the upcoming film,” 

“The immensely talented group at High Moon Studios are huge fans of the property, and they are thrilled to unveil some new characters from the movie while introducing Stealth Force game play that lets players convert to a third form beyond robot and vehicle modes to defeat their enemies in more ways than ever before.”

“Activision continues to deliver outstanding video games based on Hasbro’s iconic TRANSFORMERS brand,” said Mark Blecher, SVP of Digital Media and Gaming, Hasbro.  “We’re thrilled to deliver the Transformers: Dark of the Moon prologue video game to TRANSFORMERS fans around the world in anticipation of the film.”

The game will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS. There's no release date yet but the film's out in June/July, so it's obviously going to be sometime around then.
