Today sees the launch of Bandai Namco and Outright Games’ Transformers: Battlegrounds on Nintendo Switch, and a brand new trailer has been released to celebrate.
Developed by UK team Coatsink, the game throws players into “intense” tactical combat and tells an original story within the Transformers universe. We were also recently treated to a gameplay trailer and details of a fancy digital-only deluxe edition, should that be of any interest to you.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLEGROUNDS is an all-new tactical combat game, featuring fan favourite characters from the Transformers franchise including Bumblebee, Optimus Prime, Grimlock, Starscream, and Megatron as they battle it out for control of the AllSpark in single-player and co-op gameplay. Combat takes place across an array of diverse levels, including iconic locations such as Central City and Cybertron where players will take command of their squad and fight together to save (or destroy) the galaxy.
“We are incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to work with Hasbro and create a new take on this iconic franchise,” says Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games. “We have grown up with the Transformers Universe and are excited to be involved with the publication of this game.”
