Transformers: Devastation Playstation Preorder Bonuses, Combat Video and Achievements

Some new information about Transformers: Devastation that is set to hit stores on October 6. To start, there is a preorder DLC for those that preorder the game. There will be three skins with Nemesis Prime, Red Alert, and Goldfire. Also three special weapons (its unclear if the weapon is specific to a character or available for all to use):
- The Dark Star Saber is a fiercely intimidating blade that radiates waves of dark energy with every swing.

- The Photon Disruptor is an incredibly powerful, shotgun-style weapon that has a short range but deals huge amounts of area damage.

- The twin Golden Hunter is a pair of blaster pistols that causes enemies to drop credits when attacked.
Next up is the XBox One achievement list (most of which will probably match the Playstation ones). Some include the "Till All Are One" for beating the game to Emperor of Destruction for beating Megatron without taking damage. The last is the video below that shows more of the playable characters fighting styles.

Transformers: Devastation Wheeljack Gameplay Trailer

Here is the bio and next trailer for Wheeljack on Transformers: Devastation video game that is coming out this October. Wheeljack is a playable character in the game with his own unique special abilities. Surprisingly the game currently doesn't have that many playable characters but I suspect DLC skins and the like are in the works to remedy that.

Splatoon Getting Transformers Themed Splatfest

Hasbro and Nintendo has joined forces for a Transformers themed Splatfest in the recently released WiiU game Splatoon. The Splatfest will run 24 hours from August 28 9PM PDT (midnight ET) to August 29 9PM PDT (midnight ET). I don't think participants will get anything permanent out of playing the splatfest to carry over in future games (except Super Sea Snails for purchasing upgrades) but during the 24 hour period players will get to join either the Decepticon or Autobot side. Once chosen your character will get a T-shirt with chosen faction symbol and ink to splat everywhere. For those that already have the game this is probably good news and for those that don't it probably doesn't mean much. I have the game but yet to have time to play it so sadly unable to provide any info but ratings on the game are consistently good. More pics with the TF theme from the game is here. And nope no Transformers movie news.
