Hasbro has announced a brand new Transformers game, TRANSFORMERS: BATTLEGROUNDS. This game is being developed by Coatsink, and will release on October 23rd. Moreover, you can find below its announcement trailer, as well as its first official screenshots.

“TRANSFORMERS: BATTLEGROUNDS is a new and authentic take on what a TRANSFORMERS video game can be. It’s exciting for us to bring the epic story of the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons to life for a new generation of fans on console.”
