Developed by High Moon Studios and published by Activision. It is powered by Unreal Engine 3 that's make the game more realistic.
The game takes place on the planet Cybertron, prior to the Transformers arrival on Earth. The Autobots and Decepticons are engaged in a civil war
Transformers: War for Cybertron features a number of characters and story elements from the original 80's cartoon, The Transformers, but like many of the spin-off comics and other animated series, has its own alternate universe setting, art style and new takes on both well established and obscure characters. Overall the entire style of the game is a mixture of various inspirations, with the developers stating that they looked at the cartoon.
"War for Cybertron" unfolds across 10 chapters split in half between two campaigns, one each for the Autobots and Decepticons. While players can start with either faction, the story first follows the Decepticons and their leader Megatron as they take control of the robot planet and infect its core with Dark Energon. The action then switches to the Autobots, led by a young upstart named Optimus after their leader Zeta Prime falls. The story is an entirely new concoction, though the word from Hasbro is that fans can consider this story as official canon.
