DeNA and Hasbro announced the official tie-in game for the upcoming Transformers sequel this morning. It’s called ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ and it will be arriving on iOS, Android and Windows Phone platforms this summer.
The game will be a 3D combat runner, where the players’ mission is to take down new enemies featured in the movie as they run, dash and change forms through fast-paced missions. Keep reading for more details and hi-res screenshots…
From Hasbro’s press release:
The TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION mobile game will deliver an explosive interactive entertainment experience on mobile devices for TRANSFORMERS fans and consumers looking to extend their movie experience after the credits roll,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “This isn’t your typical runner game; this game puts the player in the middle of an action-packed Hollywood blockbuster where it’s destroy or be destroyed!”
“DeNA is creating a fresh and innovative gameplay experience with TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION that translates big screen action moments onto mobile devices,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.
This is the second title in an exclusive three-year agreement between Hasbro and DeNA to develop and publish mobile games based on the Transformers franchise. And interestingly enough, this is DeNA’s first movie-licensed game for mobile.
There’s no word on the game’s launch date other than ‘this summer.’ The film, however, is slated to hit theaters on June 27th, so it’ll likely land around that time. The game will be free-to-play. For more information, www.transformers-mobile.com.
