Transformers: Dark of the Moon announced

War for Cybertron dev returns to franchise.

Forthcoming Transformers flick Dark of the Moon is getting a videogame tie-in, publisher Activision has confirmed.

The game of the same name is a scene-setting prologue story that will see you making a royal mess of Detroit, the jungles of South America and Siberia, among other locales. There's online play promised too and a new gameplay mechanic called Stealth Force.

High Moon Studios – the same team behind last year's solid robo dust-up War for Cybertron – will tackle the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, while Naughty Bear/Wet dev Behaviour Interactive is working on "distinct" 3DS, DS and Wii titles.

"We couldn't be more excited to expand on the epic movie universe in the Transformers: Dark of the Moon game, and allow fans to experience the gripping events and backstories that occur right before the upcoming film," said Activision marketing man Paul Wright.

"The immensely talented group at High Moon Studios are huge fans of the property, and they are thrilled to unveil some new characters from the movie while introducing Stealth Force gameplay that lets players convert to a third form beyond robot and vehicle modes to defeat their enemies in more ways than ever before."
