Armed with a brand-new gameplay mechanic, fans will harness the power of Stealth Force to instantly convert to a third, hybrid state that combines the weapons and firepower of robot mode with the agility and maneuverability of vehicle mode.
“Stealth Force” is a new conversion mode for the robots. It will be central to the game’s action as players and thrust directly into an original prologue storyline featuring the Aotobots and Decepticons that leads into the summer’s anticipated blockbuster film and reveals another face of evil, Shockwave.

The game will let players assume the roles of a diverse roster of everyone’s favorite Transformers from the movie through a heart-pounding campaign to save mankind.
