Transformers Gets a Racing Game with Rogue-Lite Elements


Transformers is getting a rogue-lite racing adventure called Transformers: Galactic Trials, due out in October for PC and consoles. It’s the first Transformers racing game on console.

Transformers: Galactic Trials is published by Outright Games, which specializes in children’s video games, and is developed by 3DClouds. Outright said that in this up-to-date, unique hybrid gameplay experience, you can play as iconic Autobot and Decepticon characters in single-player mode, with two-player co-op in local multiplayer in Arcade mode.

Here’s the official description:

After the villainous NEMESIS PRIME steals the Prime Relics, the AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS must embark on a wild adventure to reclaim these artifacts and control the incredible powers they grant. Fans can play as iconic AUTOBOTS or DECEPTICONS characters, including Bumblebee, Megatron, Elita-1 and Optimus Prime, and race through battle race tracks to collect relics and defeat opponents. Gameplay ranges from established arcade racing in vehicle form to intense combat in bot form as players must defeat enemies and reach the finish line.

As players progress and collect up-to-date relics, they level up their skills and unlock up-to-date playable characters and skins. The single-player mode, called Galactic Trials, lets you progress through levels and collect relics. The two-player Arcade mode lets you take part in a quick race, creating a custom racing experience with a track, character, and weapon, or take part in specialized location-based tournaments.

Transformers: Galactic Trials will launch on October 11, 2024 for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S.

It’s a busy time for the Transformers series, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. A computer-animated Transformers One movie is coming out in September, and a crossover feature film between Transformers and GI Joe is in the works.
