The Arcade: Trailer and Release Date for TRANSFORMERS: FALL OF CYBERTRON and a Look at HORN, a New Mobile RPG from Zynga

     August 19, 2012


While we posted a bunch of news and trailers from Gamescom this past week, the new release schedule is looking a little light.  The biggest release this week will be Transformers: Fall of Cybertron, which will be available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC starting August 21st.  But with a game this big, what else do you need?  Transformers: Fall of Cybertron puts you in the middle of the war between the Autobots and Decepticons on their home planet of Cybertron before they brought the battle to our planet.  We’ve also got a look at the gorgeous RPG Horn from Zynga, now available for your mobile device.  Hit the jump to check them out.

First up, let’s take a look at Horn, an RPG that’s been compared to the early days of Zelda. The only drawbacks called out on the mobile game are the somewhat repetitive mini-games and rooms, along with the relative simplicity of many of the puzzles.  But the combat system makes up for these shortcomings.  The visuals of this pocket-sized RPG have also been touted, but you can judge for yourself below.  The game is available for download at the App Store.

Here’s the synopsis and trailer for Horn:

A young blacksmith’s apprentice named Horn wakes up a thousand years later to find his village overrun by large, fantastic and sometimes humorous monsters. These creatures are actually the people and animals from Horn’s village transformed by a curse, and Horn alone has the power to free them.

Transformers need no introduction.  Here’s the synopsis for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron:

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron transports you to the final days of the planet Cybertron where you will experience the darkest hours of the apocalyptic war between the Autobots and Decepticons.  Embark on an adrenaline-fueled journey through a wide range of missions and massive environments designed around each character’s unique abilities.  The combat is intense as you dynamically transform between robot and vehicle form to change the battle as you choose.

Check out the trailer to witness the raging war between Autobots and Decepticons:
