Here’s the thing: There are very few water based Transformers. Sure, there are a couple, the Seacons, Broadside, Seaspray, and a few others from later generations like Depth Charge and Tidal Wave, but most Transformers are land or air based.
That hasn’t stopped World of Warships, the most sea based game your could get, teaming up with the robots in disguise.
Here’s the official blurb:
We are happy to announce that World of Warships is partnering up with Transformers in a brand-new collaboration! Autobots and Decepticons will be introduced for a limited time as themed ship skins and commanders in a much-anticipated update planned for this September. Four iconic Transformers characters will be released initially as unique ship skins and commanders with recognizable phrases and voiceovers. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will set the stage for the heroic Autobots, with Megatron and Rumble to be available as their eternal foes – the Decepticons. The coming Transformers collaboration with World of Warships will also bring a host of other new content, including special Transformers containers, dedicated in-game Combat missions, camouflages, commemorative flags and patches, and more.
Why are Megatron and Optimus Prime battling at sea? I have no idea, this is very odd. World of Warships is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Classic Mac OS, and Microsoft Windows.
Transformers have returned in force in recent weeks, last Friday Netflix dropped the first six episodes of a new animated series for the fans. Rather featuring a battle every five seconds like the children’s cartoons it’s character based with lots of dialogue and plot.
There is also a new Transformers game from Bandai Namco called Transformers Battlegrounds which features many classic characters. Very few details of that title have been revealed but we will have a hands on preview of the game quite soon so keep an eye out for that. Transformers Battleground launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on October 23rd.
