Splash Damage, the developers behind Dirty Bomb, Gears Tactics, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, today announced TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE, a 1-4 player online action game, being developed in collaboration with Hasbro, Inc. This PC & Console co-op game will offer players an opportunity to explore a fresh, new story within the TRANSFORMERS universe.
The Game Awards saw the World Exclusive Reveal of TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE, offering fans a glimpse of what they can expect with a cinematic trailer. The gravest threat to humanity has arrived. And it’s already won. Earth is no longer ours; it belongs to them. All we have left is our hope for the Autobots, as we salvage them from the rubble left behind.
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will offer players a chance to immerse themselves in the TRANSFORMERS universe like never before. They will get to play as some of their favourite characters; unique, weighty, and powerful, seamlessly converting between vehicle and bot form as they battle The Legion; the greatest threat the Autobots have ever faced.
Richard Jolly, CEO of Splash Damage, says, “Growing up with G1 TRANSFORMERS in the ’80s means it’ll always hold a special place in my heart, it’s both an honour and a privilege to work with such a beloved franchise. We know fans have been waiting a long time for a new TRANSFORMERS game on consoles and pc, and we’re going to give them the experience they deserve.”
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE marks a new era for Splash Damage and is being developed & published exclusively by the London-based group. As part of this new era, Splash Damage recently acquired BULKHEAD and have been developing TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE in collaboration with the Derby-based studio. The 500+ people strong development & publishing teams at Splash Damage and BULKHEAD are expanding rapidly and TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE is one of several original titles currently in development at the studios.
Eugene Evans, SVP of Business Development & Digital Licensing, at Hasbro, says, “Fans have been eagerly awaiting a new game that immerses them into our iconic TRANSFORMERS universe. We’re thrilled to share a first look on one of gaming’s biggest nights. Splash Damage has an amazing track record with some of the world’s most famous IP’s and have a strong creative passion for the TRANSFORMERS brand. We’re confident that TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will be hugely popular with the TRANSFORMERS community and continues the Hasbro Blueprint 2.0 strategy of creating first-class branded entertainment across diverse categories and platforms including video games.”
TRANSFORMERS: REACTIVATE will be available for PC and consoles. With the Closed Beta planned for 2023, players can sign up right now at www.playTFR.com for future updates.
