Transformers: Earth Wars Rolls Out On Android And iOS This Year

10 February 2016 10:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Optimus Prime and Megatron are taking their eternal war to mobiles later this year with free-to-play mobile game Transformers: Earth Wars. In development by Space Ape Games (of Rival Kingdoms and Samurai Siege fame) for both Android and iOS, Earth Wars will see players take control of both the Autobots and Decepticons in a real-time strategy robot war bonanza.

So far, only a short – but brilliantly animated – reveal trailer has been made public, so we’re not entirely sure how the game will play, but an excruciatingly short snippet of in-game footage seems to show the presence of usual tropes of the genre, i.e. base building and unit construction.

Fans of the Generation 1 cartoon will no doubt already be excited by the fact that Earth Wars follows the aesthetics of the 80s designs to the tee, but there’s even more good news. The game’s dialogue will »

It's billed as a sequel to Cloverfield, but is 10 Cloverfield Lane all it seems? We take a look at the subject of unrelated sequels...

In an era where it's just about impossible to make a high-profile movie without at least something leaking onto the web, producer Jj Abrams seems to have pulled off the ultimate coup in recent months: he and his company Bad Robot have secretly created a follow-up, of sorts, to the 2008 hit monster movie, Cloverfield.

On the 15th January, a trailer landed for 10 Cloverfield Lane, a claustrophobic horror thriller that Abrams described in a statement to Collider as a "blood relative" of that earlier film directed by Matt Reeves.

The premise is this: Mary Elizabeth Winstead's character, Michelle, is injured in a car accident and wakes up in a bunker with 40-something survivalist, Howard (John Goodman).

Howard tells Michelle that some kind of »

The internet groaned collectively the other day as Michael Bay was announced that he would return for the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise. Yes despite speculation since the second one on if he would return once again we find out that he’ll be returning and he’s already once again saying this will be the last installment he will direct. Can you tell this process is getting old to me? Now there’s been no other casting announcements except for Mark Wahlberg. Production is expected to begin June of 2016 with Akiva Goldsman taking on head writer duties with Steven DeKnight of Daredevil, Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead, and Jeff Pinkner of Spider-Man.
