We’ve shown video of Grimlock unleashing his destructive T-Rex form on Decepticons, but Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is loaded with more than just him. It looks as though they’ll also be including the rest of the Dinobots: Slag (Triceratops), Sludge (Brontosaurus), Snarl (Stegosaurus), and Swoop (Pteranodon).
For the purposes of Cybertron, High Moon created their own origin story for the Dinobots. This involves them being captured by the Decepticon Shockwave who, having opened portals in space, discovers primordial Earth where he becomes inspired by dinosaurs and decides to turn the team into the forms that we all know. It’s a fun sounding story and should be interesting for fans to play through.
The video only really shows off Grimlock gameplay, so we don’t know if players will be able to try out the other Dinobots. You will be able to play as other Transformers though including Optimus Prime, Jazz, the Combaticons and for one level, Bruticus.
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron comes out for Xbox 360 and Playstation on August 28.
