During The Game Awards yesterday evening, British developer Splash Damage confirmed that they're in the process of putting together Transformers: Reactivate, a new online action game coming to PC and consoles. Little to nothing has been revealed about the title, though we do have a brief teaser that offers a first look at what fans can expect.
"The gravest threat to humanity has arrived," reads a brief synopsis. "And it’s already won. Earth is no longer ours; it belongs to them. All we have left is our hope for the Autobots, as we salvage them from the rubble left behind."
It's added that, "Transformers: Reactivate is a 1-4 player online action game, developed by Splash Damage, coming to PC & consoles. With the Closed Beta planned for 2023, players, press, and content creators can sign up at the links below for future updates."

Transformers fans have been clamouring for a new video game for some time now, especially with the movie franchise undergoing a number of sweeping changes. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to be released next year, of course, though this title looks entirely standalone in nature (and not remotely like Michael Bay's glossier approach to the series).
The fact this is an online multiplayer game suggests it won't be overly story-driven, though the narrative hinted at in this sneak peek is definitely interesting.
No release date for Transformers: Reactivate has been announced, and we still don't know which specific formats it will be available on. It looks like a fun game, though, and one we're definitely intrigued to see more from.
