Fall of Cybertron (FoC) is set in the last days of Cybertron during the great war between the Autobots and the Decepticons that took place there. The war is all but over as Megatron has routed the Autobots, forcing Optimus to seek shelter for himself and his soldiers somewhere off world. Thus, the Autobots begin construction of the Ark, the vehicle of their exodus. However, Megatron, not content to allow his enemies escape, will stop at nothing to prevent the Autobots from leaving and destroying the last Prime.
Developed by High Moon Studios, FoC is, as the name would imply, the sequel to Trasformers: War for Cybertron, which came out in 2010. One of best things about War for Cybertron was a co-op campaign and one of the saddest things about FoC is its lack of Co-op.
However, FoC looks to make up for that with a grand unique single player focused campaign. Each character has their own set of abilities and attributes. Optimus can utilize the powers of Metroplex, the city sized titan of Cybertron, while Cliffjumper can use cloaking, and, of course, Grimlock can become a mechinized fire breathing trex!

FoC first ten minutes of gameplay.
While FoC might not have a co-op campaign, this won't stop you from smashing robots with your friends. FoC does indeed have a multiplayer mode where you can play against or with your friends in death matches or the 4 player Co-op escalation mode. Again, going with individuality, you can customize your own transformer for hundreds of combinations, and not just how you look, such as color and how shiny you are, but also how you play. Do you want to be a fast melee specialist that can turn into a jet? How about a heavy ranged robot that can turn into a tank? Do it.
Transformers fall of Cybertron hits shelves on August 21st for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
