New Characters And Weapons Inbound For Transformers Devastation Next Week

Three new characters and weapons are headed to Transformers Devastation next week as part of the game’s first DLC pack. Included in the pack are well-known bots from the Generation 1 era like Bumblebee’s upgraded Goldfire form and Autobot staple Red Alert.

See below for the full details on what else is included.

Nemesis Prime and the Dark Star Saber

Anyone who’s familiar with Transformers lore could probably give you a little backstory about Optimus’ human-made clone, Nemesis Prime. He has all of Optimus Prime’s strength, but he’s controlled by the evil Decepticons, so he lacks Optimus’ principles. Though, he does have tinted-red windows and a slick, black paint job. So, he looks sweet.

And instead of Optimus’ trademark Energon-axe, Nemesis wields the Dark Star Saber, a glowing sword that quickly reduces enemies to scrap. Nobody makes a purple sword look better than Nemesis Prime.

Red Alert and the Photon Disruptor

Red Alert is the Autobot’s Security Director, but he’s a little on the paranoid side. In Transformers: Devastation, he makes up for that paranoia with the Photon Disruptor, a powerful weapon that gives him an advantage during ranged battles.

Goldfire and the Golden Hunter

Bumblebee is one of the friendliest-looking characters in the Autobot lineup, but his Goldfire skin gives him a slightly more threatening appearance. And when he whips out the Golden Hunter Weapon, a pair of highly polished hand cannons, Bumblebee becomes downright dangerous.

Even though the weapons have been personalized for Goldfire, Red Alert, and Nemesis Prime, they can be equipped by any of the playable characters. So, if you want to see Wheeljack take on Devastator with the Dark Star Saber, go right ahead.

The DLC is slated to release on November 10 for the PlayStation Store. No word yet on an Xbox One release, but you can probably expect it to appear on the Xbox Marketplace around the same time.
