Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron Trailer Gets Up Close And Personal

Folks, I'm going to level with you for a minute here. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron features a giant robot dinosaur from space as one of its main playable characters. Taking this into account, I don't think that I should be held accountable for anything that I say about the game, because I will always be blinded by just how cool that is. 

Whew. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, let's take a look at the new developer diary/trailer hybrid showing off Grimlock. As mentioned above, yes, he can transform into a giant T-Rex. This is done by filling a rage meter in the corner of the screen. When transformed, Grimlock can lash out with his tail, stomp the ground to cause quakes, bite enemies in half, and breathe fire. It's making my inner child giddy just talking about it. But Grimlock looks to be a pretty neat character even in his boring old non-T-Rex form, too. 

Unlike most characters in the game, Grimlock won't carry a gun. Instead, he prefers to get up close and personal with a sword and shield. By placing the focus more on melee combat than ranged combat during Grimlock's levels, High Moon Studios seems to have effectively wedged a character action game into the middle of their shooter. Hopefully the swordplay will be deep enough to provide a pleasing break from the shooting. 

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron looks to be shaping up nicely so far. Look for it to transform and roll into stores on August 28th. Oh, and did I mention the freaking giant fire-breathing robot dinosaur from space?!?
