Transformers: Devastation DLC comes to PlayStation next week

A trio of character skins and three Decepticon-destroying weapons

When Transformers: Devastation was announced, long-time fans were understandably excited. The Generations-inspired visuals and PlatinumGames’ distinctive combat mechanics are a perfect pairing. And the fact that many of the original actors reprise their iconic roles after such a lengthy hiatus makes Transformers: Devastation even more significant. It’s the game that Transformers aficionados have been waiting for.

But the Transformers universe is massive, containing dozens of highly specialised robots. And after spending so much time perfecting Devastation’s five playable characters, the folks at PlatinumGames wanted to dig a little deeper into the franchise’s catalogue. So, they put together a swanky DLC pack, containing a trio of character skins and three Decepticon-destroying weapons. Here’s the rundown:

Nemesis Prime and the Dark Star Saber

Anyone who’s familiar with Transformers lore could probably give you a little backstory about Optimus’ human-made clone, Nemesis Prime. He has all of Optimus Prime’s strength, but he’s controlled by the evil Decepticons, so he lacks Optimus’ principles. Though, he does have tinted-red windows and a slick, black paint job. So, he looks sweet.

And instead of Optimus’ trademark Energon-axe, Nemesis wields the Dark Star Saber, a glowing sword that quickly reduces enemies to scrap. Nobody makes a purple sword look better than Nemesis Prime.

Red Alert and the Photon Disruptor

Red Alert is the Autobot’s Security Director, but he’s a little on the paranoid side. In Transformers: Devastation, he makes up for that paranoia with the Photon Disruptor, a powerful weapon that gives him an advantage during ranged battles.

Goldfire and the Golden Hunter

Bumblebee is one of the friendliest-looking characters in the Autobot lineup, but his Goldfire skin gives him a slightly more threatening appearance. And when he whips out the Golden Hunter Weapon, a pair of highly polished hand cannons, Bumblebee becomes downright dangerous.

Even though the weapons have been personalized for Goldfire, Red Alert, and Nemesis Prime, they can be equipped by any of the playable characters. So, if you want to see Wheeljack take on Devastator with the Dark Star Saber, go right ahead.

The Transformers: Devastation DLC will hit PlayStation Store on 11th November.

Wouldn’t count on this coming next week. Sorry Josh, SCEE are less than competent when it comes to updating the store. Look at any store post from the last 3 weeks.

And the price for all this?

Or is it better not to upset fans?

wouldn’t Goldbug be a more appropriate name for Bumblebee’s new look?

probably showing my age knowing that name right? ^_^

Yep. 100% That’s what he was rebuilt as. Wasn’t it Death’s Head who destroyed poor Bumblebee?

(Showing my age, although it’s in my PSN…)

Think Hasbro don’t have the trademark to the Goldbug name anymore

And yeah in Marvel UK canon it was Death’s Head who killed Bumblebee, in the Marvel US run it was GI Joe. One of the biggest differences between the otherwise very similar timelines.

I already have these, came with my digital version of the game *shrugs* check it out: http://s13.postimg.org/6lgfmh3lj/Capture.png

I didn’t preorder or anything.
