War For Cybertron at GDC
Destructoid reports on new(ish) information regarding War For Cybertron.
New information garnered suggests that the player will control Optimus Prime at some point in his "Pre-Prime" phase. Whether this means Orion Pax or him being called simply Optimus is not made clear as yet though.
Supposedly the game opens as Cybertron, the home planet of the Transformers, is already deep in the clutches of a massive civil war.
Known gameplay details like character-specific abilities are reiterated (there is some detail on Optimus' rallying Warcry ability) while some new gameplay details have been confirmed such as melee attacks and detachable turrets which change to the colour of the character you're using. Also, transforming between two modes is said to be fluid and well animated, making the crux of the gameplay the ability to link together attacks through transforming.
Blah blah blah giant robots that turn into cars. Nuff said.
