Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark brings back the Cybertron series' Escalation survival mode, which lets players cooperate to fight off waves of AI opponents.
More than 40 playable characters can be unlocked for use in the mode. Players can augment their robot and vehicle modes with unlockable upgrades or invest in stationary defenses to keep enemies at bay.
Developed by Edge of Reality, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will be the third entry in the 'War for Cybertron' series, and the first to cross over with the film continuity.
It is a direct sequel to 2012's Fall of Cybertron and will coincide with the upcoming release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, directed by Michael Bay.
Rise of the Dark Spark will release June 24 for PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and 3DS.
When it was announced in February, publisher Activision announced it will "go beyond the movie by uniting the universe of director Michael Bay's Transformers movies with the ever-popular Cybertron universe."
