Four iconic Transformers characters will be released initially as unique ship skins and commanders with recognizable phrases and voiceovers. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will set the stage for the Autobots, with Megatron and Rumble to be available as their eternal foes – the Decepticons.
“Generations were raised with the Transformers franchise. Starting from the 1980’s animated series all the way to the latest movies, we instantly fell in love with the robot characters that captivated our imagination. Having the chance to feature them in World of Warships is a dream come true for many of us,” said Philip Molodkovets, World of Warships’ Executive Producer. “Our love for big, epic metal warriors is mutual! Therefore we paid special attention to bring Transformers characters to life in detail and true scale, side by side with legendary warships.”
“We’re thrilled to bring the Transformers brand to life in World of Warships through this unique collaboration,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs at Hasbro. “Combining the might of warships and Transformers adds a whole new dimension to combat for fans of both franchises.”
The coming Transformers collaboration with World of Warships will also bring a host of other new content, including special Transformers containers, dedicated game tasks, and combat missions, expendable camouflages, commemorative flags and patches, and more.
