I don’t really want to get into an argument of the pros and cons of DLC — mostly because my head is filling up with mucus again and I probably don’t have much time left before I pass out — but Activision is releasing a bunch of DLC for Transformers: Fall of Cyberton, And I have one word for you: Dinobots. Then another word: Insecticons. Then a third word: multiplayer, which is where these guys will be playable, in case you were wondering how the Dinobots were DLC when they were marketed as part of the game. As always, I’m not a big Transformers fan — I own a Soundwave, and that’s it — but this shit tickles me right in my nostalgia sack. The three DLC breakdowns are after the jump.
Dinobot Destructor Pack – includes the following multiplayer characters, which includes their full body + individual body parts for use in the multiplayer character creator.
Multiplayer Havoc Pack – includes the following multiplayer characters, which includes their full body + individual body parts for use in the multiplayer character creator.
Massive Fury Pack – includes the following multiplayer characters, which includes their full body + individual body parts for use in the multiplayer character creator. Also includes the following single-player campaign items.
KICKBACK (Flying Insecticon)
SHARPSHOT (Flying Insecticon)
HARDSHELL (Beetle Tank Insecticon)
G1 RETRO OPTIMUS PRIME
Single-Player campaign items:
G2 BRUTICUS (character skin)
G1 SHOCKWAVE BLAST CANNON (weapon)
G1 MEGATRON PISTOL GUN (weapon)
Each pack is a whopping 800 Microsoft Points or $10 PlayStation Bucks, which I didn’t see before I posted the shit on the front page. Sorry, Kickback. I loved you as a kid, but I’m sure as fuck not paying $10 for you.
