Hasbro, Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games have announced Transformers: Earth Wars for iOS and Android. The base-building combat game will allow players to join forces with Optimus Prime and the Autobots or with Megatron and the Decepticons in the battle for Earth.
In Transformers: Earth Wars, players will build a base and defend it with things like missile launchers, shock towers and laser turrets. The game will allow players to form a team of Transformers, and will include characters like Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee and Starscream. During battles, players will be in control of their characters’ transformations.
In a statement, Mark Blecher, senior vice president of digital gaming and corporate development at Hasbro, commented:
We are excited to join forces with Backflip Studios and Space Ape to bring our iconic Transformers brand to life in a new way through the launch of Transformers: Earth Wars. Transformers fans and fans of combat strategy games will love the explosive action as they join the fight to control the fate of Earth.
Transformers: Earth Wars is expected to launch on iOS and Android worldwide (excluding Japan and China) in Spring 2016. The game will be free to download, and will include in-app purchases. Interested players can pre-register for the game here.
