Outright Games, in collaboration with Hasbro, a leading toy and game company, have revealed the first details of their upcoming video game, “Transformers: Galactic Trials.”

Developed by 3DClouds and based on the Transforms brand, this unique racing adventure game, with rogue-lite elements, will give fans a fusion of arcade racing and robot combat. “Transformers: Galactic Trials will be released on October 11, and will be available to play on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Steam.  

After the evil NEMESIS PRIME steals the Prime Relics, the Autobots and Decepticons must set out on an adventure to recover these artefacts and control the incredible powers they bestow. Fans can play as iconic Autobots and Decepticons, including Bumblebee, Megatron, Elita-1 and Optimus Prime and race across battle-race circuits to collect relics and beat opponents. The gameplay incorporates both traditional arcade racing in vehicle form and dynamic combat in bot-form, as players must defeat enemies and make it to the finish line.

As players progress and collect new relics, they will level up their skills and unlock new iconic playable characters and skins. Two game modes are available; play Galactic Trials to progress through levels and collect relics in single-player mode. In Arcade mode, grab a friend with 2-player, local multiplayer and enter a quick race, creating a custom racing experience with your track, character and weapons, or enter location-based specialized tournaments. 

"It has been a pleasure to continue our collaboration with Hasbro and return to the world of Transformers", says Stephanie Malham, managing director, Outright Games. "With 2024 marking the 40th anniversary of this iconic IP, we are very excited to be releasing the first ever console racing video game in the franchise's history. With the inclusion of rogue-lite elements, ‘Transformers: Galactic Trials's’ gameplay complements the dynamic Transformers robots."

"As Transformers celebrates its 40th year alongside the theatrical premiere of its first fully CG-animated film, Transformers ONE, we are proud to continue our collaboration with Outright Games to unveil an epic journey that speaks to the enduring legacy of the iconic brand," says Eugene Evans, senior vide president, digital strategy and licensing, Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro. "With immersive gameplay, and a storyline that resonates with fans old and new, ‘Transformers: Galactic Trials’ is sure to ignite excitement. Through this all-new Transformers racing experience, we continue to expand our digital offerings through strategic licensing and internal development and we can't wait for Transformers fans to see what else we have in store."

Transformers started life as a toy-line in 1984 and has gone on to depict the epic battle between the Autobots and Decepticons across movies, TV shows, comic books, innovative toys and digital media. Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Transformers franchise is a global powerhouse spanning generations that has produced over 10 feature films, with the upcoming film “Transformers: One” expected to hit cinemas this September, and countless video games.
