Based on Hasbroâ€™s iconic Transformers brand, the downloadable content pack will include five distinct playable Transformers characters and four all-new maps for online multiplayer game modes.
â€śThe fans have spoken and the response to Transformers: War for Cybertron has been colossal,â€ť said David Pokress, Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties, Activision Publishing, Inc. â€śOur number one goal since the launch of the game has been to support the rapidly-growing online community, and we recognize the need for these characters and maps to continue the blistering multiplayer gameplay they have come to know and love.â€ť
The additional Transformers characters entering the pack include Scattershot, Onslaught, Shockwave, Demolisher, and Jazz.
