Activision have announced Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spawn - the game that will serve as the companion video game with this summer's theatrical release Transformers: Age of Extinction.

"Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is an arc between the Cybertron and Earth based worlds of this popular franchise," remarked Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc. "This year marks 30 incredible years of Transformers. This game tells another chapter in the Transformers story that all fans will love."

As you'd expect Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark will hit a multitude of platforms as it sees release this June - current and next-gen as well as PC and Nintendo 3DS.

Some further details were provided in the press release:

"Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble AUutobots and the nefarious Decepticons throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios' Cybertron entries in the highly regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts.

Players will also see the return of the fan-favourite multiplayer mode, Escalation, which delivers wave-based, survival-style gameplay for up to four players online cooperatively. It features new, upgradeable defence systems, recognisable adversaries from the lore, and an expanded roster of playable characters from past and present. Additionally, an exciting new levelling system transforms single-player and multiplayer into one unified, persistent character development path. Experience earned in any part of the game unlocks potent awards and tactical loadout choices - including new characters, stronger weapons, special abilities and consumable bonuses - for use throughout the entire game."
