Transformers: DotM is an upcoming third-person shooter from High Moon Studios, the people who brought us the well-received War for Cybertron last year.

It is set right before the events in the film, and offers 18 missions in various locations on Earth, ranging from jungles to urban environments and military bases.

The gameplay of Transformers: Dark of the Moon should be similar to that of War for Cybertron: a 3rd-person shooter where players can switch between robot and vehicle forms and use different weapons depending on their class. Perhaps the biggest addition is the new Stealth Mode – a hybrid form that gives you access to the impressive firepower of the robot weapons without sacrificing your speed.
