Activision has confirmed that Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will ship earlier than was previously though citing that developer High Moon Studios has listened to the emails, tweets, user comments and Facebook posts from fans ‘clamouring’ for the game to hit stores.

Clamouring or not, expect to be playing through the battles that culminated in the Transformers’ legendary exodus from their home planet of Cybertron as players will embark on a journey through war-torn environments designed around each character’s unique abilities and alternate forms.

Interestingly both Grimlock – leader of the Dinobots and snarling T-Rex in his quieter moments – is on hand to liven up proceedings, as are the Combaticons who fans will recognise as being able to form together to form the colossal Bruticus – I never did manage to collect them all as kid.

The game will also allow fans go head-to-head in Autobot vs. Decepticon fisticuffs and apparently allow for the most ‘in-depth, advanced customization ever before seen in a Transformers video game’.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron launches on 24th August for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
