I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to let Mark Wahlberg take a crack at saving the human race from being wiped out by giant, shape-changing robots since Shia LeBeouf obviously couldn’t get the job done.
Or you could put the fate of the world in your own hands, which is exactly what DeNA and Hasbro are preparing to do. The two companies announced today that they’re working on Transformers: Age of Extinction, a mobile game for iOS and Android devices based on the upcoming Wahlberg-starring movie of the same name.
Described as a 3D combat runner, Transformers: Age of Extinction will give players control of the Autobots from the film as they battle against all new enemies. The free-to-play game will be the second developed through an exclusive three-year deal between DeNA and Hasbro but the first to be based on one of the movies.
“The Transformers: Age of Extinction mobile game will deliver an explosive interactive entertainment experience on mobile devices for Transformers fans and consumers looking to extend their movie experience after the credits roll,” Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA, said in a press release. “This isn’t your typical runner game; this game puts the player in the middle of an action-packed Hollywood blockbuster where it’s destroy or be destroyed!”
Just in case you want to grab a free Rare Transmetal Rocket Launcher for use when the game goes live (and you probably do), you can get one by registering your Facebook account at the game’s official site.
No release date has been announced for Transformers: Age of Extinction, but smart money says it will coincide with Michael Bay’s latest assault on our senses on June 27.
