Some cool news for those of you waiting for the new TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK video game due to come out at the end of June. The skinny is that if you pre-order the game at GameStop you'll get access to new characters and weapons in the game's Escalation mode - the wave-based, four-player cooperative multiplayer survival mode.


GameStop is calling it the "Weathered Warrior Pack," which includes characters THUNDERCRACKER AND SKYWARP, two fearsome DECEPTICONS! You'll also get two powerful new weapons, including the distortion field-generating Glass Gas Cannon, and the long-range, kinetic projectile-spitting Electro Bolter, and both weapons will be available for players to use in the game's Campaign and Escalation modes once they are unlocked. GameStop's "Weathered Warrior Pack" is only available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC systems.


TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE DARK SPARK is planned to launch June 24th on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, Nintendo 3DS and the PC, and serves as a companion piece to the upcoming Michael Bay film TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION which hits theaters on June 27th.
