Activision has released some new and exciting information on its Transformers video game, called Transformers: Devastation.

As the trailer shows, this Transformers video game looks like the retro 80s cartoons and looks fun and simple to play. There have been many different video games in the franchise through the years, but I particularly like this one because it is so easy-going. Previous versions focussed so much on making the game serious and realistic, where as this new version feels retro and light in a cool way. Based on the gameplay trailer it looks like the game is a typical arena fighting game, with awesome special Transformers moves where characters are able to seamlessly transform. The trailer also showcases some of the game’s many characters, including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Megatron and Devastator.

The game is set for release later this year and will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
