Turn Based PVP Transformers Battle Game Released Today

about X hours ago from

Inspired by Transformers Generations, DeNA and Hasbro launched Transformers Battles Tactics today on the App Store and Android Marketplace. The game is a free-to-play title where you create a squad of four from both Autobots and Decepticons and challenge other players in combat. The game is turn-based, and knowing when to swap between forms and how to manage your ability points is crucial to success.

I downloaded the game and played for a few rounds. The pay elements of this initially free-to-play title aren’t very intrusive early on. You can speed up countdowns and access your favorite Transformers early if you want but it isn't necessary because they will unlock soon enough. It remains to be seen if the paywall becomes more aggressive as the game continues. I was happy to see there is a decent amount of strategy to be found. Even when I was statistically outmatched, I was able to win my battles by carefully dismantling the enemy army one unit at a time.

This is the first glimpse of gameplay for the title on the system, and we hope the button mapping make sense and everything is nicely at your fingertips.

Watch Giant Spaceships Blow Each Other Up In A Dreadnought Narrated Walkthrough

At PAX last summer, I had the opportunity to try my hand at Yager’s upcoming take on space combat. Dreadnought isn’t the speedy, snub fighter dogfighting game you’re used to. The ships are much bigger, and so are the explosions.

The game has progressed since last we played, and the team is showing off new ships and a new map. The five-on-five gameplay has a more methodical feel to it. You still need to think on your feet, but you also need to plan your engagements more carefully.
