DeNA and Hasbro have today announced Transformers: Age of Extinction, the official mobile game for the film of the same name. The game is the second title in an exclusive three-year agreement between the two companies, the first being the online CCG Transformers Legends. Unlike Legends, Age of Extinction is set to be a '3D combat runner', with players taking out enemies also featured in the movie as they run, dash, and change form in a variety of environments.
Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA, had this to say about the project:
The TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION mobile game will deliver an explosive interactive entertainment experience on mobile devices for TRANSFORMERS fans and consumers looking to extend their movie experience after the credits roll. This isn't your typical runner game; this game puts the player in the middle of an action-packed Hollywood blockbuster where it’s destroy or be destroyed!
Transformers: Age of Extinction is set to be available later this year. If players pre-register on the official website with their Facebook account, they will receive a Rare Transmetal Rocket Launcher for the game when it launches.
