Transformers:War for Cybertron multiplayer demo now available on Xbox Live

By now you've read our hands on preview and read both of our interviews for Transformers:War for Cybertron and now you can try out the mutlplayer demo for yourself (assuming you have an Xbox 360 and a gold membership).  The demo will let you try out two of the classes in the game (scout and solider) and two modes (Conquest and Team Deathmatch) on one level of the game which should give you a small taste of the game before it hits shelves on June 22nd.  I'm guessing that the PS3 demo will probably be available sometime after E3 but we don't have a solid date yet. 


Exclusive to Xbox 360 owners, the demo will grant players early access to a deep Transformers multiplayer experience, offering fans a sample of some of the character classes and game modes that will be found in the final version. It will feature full, 10-player matches and drop players straight into Molten, one of the game's expansive maps set on the Transformers' home planet of Cybertron.

Players will have access to the Scout and Soldier character classes and be able to experience upgrading and leveling up their Transformer to unlock weapons and abilities. Fans will compete with each other in two of the game's adrenaline-pumping multiplayer modes:

* Team Deathmatch - A classic game mode that pits Autobots vs. Decepticons directly against one another in blistering head-to-head battle

* Conquest - An intense team-based mode that challenges each squad to control various power nodes on the map to earn points to achieve victory

Transformers: War for Cybertron challenges players to become the ultimate weapon as a TRANSFORMERS character in the final, epic war that will determine the survival of their entire race. Armed with a diverse arsenal of lethal, high-tech weaponry and the ability to instantly convert from robot to vehicle at any time, players will engage in heart-pounding battles on land and in the air in this gripping, 3rd person action shooter set in the TRANSFORMERS' war-ravaged homeland. Complete with several multiplayer modes, Transformers: War for Cybertron allows gamers to play through story missions with their friends in drop in/drop out online co-op, and also create their very own TRANSFORMERS character for competitive head-to-head multiplayer modes, choosing among four distinct character classes, personalizing its look and selecting from a huge variety of weapons, skills and abilities.
