Details filling in for the universe mixing game.
Today, several story and gameplay details for Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark' were released. For example, what is the "Dark Spark" in 'Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark?' According to Peter Cullen, it is the antithesis of the Matrix of Leadership. It is also at the core of the world melding game which, according to Leader Producer Andy Owen, "crosses the cosmos, intersecting with Generation One, Paramount Pictures’ live-action films, and Activision’s Cybertron titles to bridge these storied worlds for the very first time."
"The roster this time around includes more than forty playable characters across Campaign and co-op Escalation modes. In the spirit of linking two unrelated Transformers continuities, we’ve unified player progression across both modes, so all the customizable advances and loadout options you obtain playing one part of the game will carry over to make you stronger in the other."
"Escalation mode has evolved in some exciting ways, with more defensive, tactical tools to play with, as well as — finally — special mini-boss fights against recognizable Power Foes from the cast."
Cullen even explains how Megatron resurrects fallen Autobots to send against Optimus, Grimlock, Bumblebee and co. He also has revealed a new character in the game, Drift, who also appears in the new movie.
