The official website for Transformers: War for Cybertron has been updated with new info about the game. Jetfire, Sideswipe and Thundercracker have joined the game cast. The site also has new information about the multiplayer modes Countdown to Extinction and Conquest along with more details about the four customization classes that were showcased in the recent trailer.
Countdown to Extinction
Defend your factor's base and save your team from extinction. Outmaneuver your opponents in order to seize the bomb in the center of the map and deliver the payload to the opposing team's base. Activate the bomb and hold your ground to wipe out your rivals. If the bomb is successfully detonated your faction is awarded a point.
Team based tactics are the key to victory in this mode. Teams vie for control of the 3 Energon nodes as they fight to capture nodes from the enemy team and defend the nodes they own. Teams earn points for capturing and controlling nodes. The first team to dominate the scoreboard wins.
