Transformers unite in new Escalation Mode video

Transformers Rise Of The Dark Spark Optimus

We have a new video detailing the Escalation co-op survival mode coming in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark.

It’s been revealed the multiplayer co-op Escalation Mode from the Transformers Cybertron games will be making a return in Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark.

“Megatron's bid to claim Cybertron's most ancient and destructive weapon is one which will spill out over space and time itself and you'll need the help of friends if you hope to achieve victory for your side,” reads the Escalation mode announcement

Up to four players can choose from a selection of over forty Decepticons and Autobots and team up to fend of waves of enemies. Each endowed with their own unique skill sets, choosing complimenting Transformers can give your team a tactical edge.

Co-ordinating with your team-mates you’ll need to hold your ground deploying gun turrets, decoys and defensive barricades to aid the cause. If your team successfully sees off waves of attackers you’ll unlock upgrades for your weapons and defenses to better prepare from the attack of Power Foes like Shockwave or Warpath.

Below is a gameplay video showing more of escalation mode. Hold your lines!


Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is out on June 27th For PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One. There will also be Wii U and 3DS versions but these will not be coming with the Escalation mode.
