Trailer: Transformers Rise of The Dark Spark announced

Activision game will 'complement' the upcoming fourth movie

Activision has announced Transformers: Rise of The Dark Spark, a new game in the Transformers series,

Set for release in June, the game is described as both a sequel to the Cybertron series of games and a companion to the upcoming Age Of Extinction movie.

According to Activision, Rise Of The Dark Spark "will go beyond the movie by uniting the universe of director Michael Bay's Transformers movies with the ever-popular Cybertron universe."

Players will choose from over 40 playable characters from the two different universes as they battle to secure the Dark Spark.

Gameplay is said to feature "nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat" paired with traversal and vehicle action across large, open battlefields.

Fan-favourite multiplayer mode, Escalation will return with new, upgradeable defence systems, recognisable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters "from past and present".

Additionally, a new levelling system across single-player and multiplayer will provide a unified character development path, the publisher says.

Rise of The Dark Spark will be released on Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, PC and 3DS.
