This month’s issue of Game Informer offers up new details about Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark. You can find them rounded up below.
- 3DS version is a grid-based tactical RPG
- Over 50 Transformers characters
- On the 3DS version: “Players will plot their next move on detailed strategic maps, and then engage in epic one-on-one 3D Battle sequences.”
- In the console version, the two worlds (Movieverse and WFCverse) are connected by an ancient relic known as The Dark Spark
- This relic acts as a portal between the two universes
- It’s capable of “Bending the fabric of the universe to (the wielder’s) will.”
- The Movieverse portion of the game will take place during and after Age of Extinction
- The WFC/FOC portion will take place before the launch of the Ark in Fall of Cybertron
- Gameplay similar to Fall of Cybertron
- Story is focused on a single character and will bounce back and forth between over 40 playable characters
- Edge of Reality is trying their best to help innovate and improve upon High Moon Studio’s last three games
- One of these new features is a Unified Leveling System where experience and unlocks are universal between Campaign and the returning Escalation mode and will feature new items, characters, weapons and upgrades
- “Power Foes” have been added to Escalation
- With Power Foes, if your team lasts long enough, boss characters will appear (Such as Fall of Cybertron Megatron)
- Hacks: modify the gameplay by adding in additional variables to Escalation such as higher enemy health, or every robot becoming a massive explosion upon death

Entwined and Kill Strain are both intended to be used for game software. More specifically, the two trademarks pertain to “Computer game software; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; Video game software”.
