We all are very familiar with The Transformers. Even if the elders don’t know about them, they get their know-how about these from their kids who are quite aware of the same with the advent of internet and technology. There are movies, comics and cartoons of these characters. The most liked form of the Transformers is the game named Transformers- The War for Cybertron.
The Transformers originated on the alien planet Cybertron before they came to the Earth. This game is about the mutual conflicts between the Transformers to gain the ruling control over the Cybertron. Every transformer is a robot with the special abilities of transformation to some form of mass destruction and power. The conflict for power turns into a war between them. Those having a same thought process about protecting the Cybertron formed one group Autobots. The others who were inclined to capture and rule the planet formed the rival group Decepticons. The Autobots is lead by Optimus Prime and the rivals are lead by the Megatron. There is a choice for the players to choose the game chapters.
There are four classes in which the transformers are sorted. Those are The Leader, The Soldier, The Scientist and The Scout. Every transformer is assigned one of these classes. Their powers, artillery, robot form and the vehicle form is governed by the class they are assigned. The players can switch between any forms at any point of time in the game. Though the main task is to destroy the enemy, the character has to collect the different kinds of weapons it comes across.
