    Activision has announced that the next two playable characters – AIR RAID and BREAKDOWN – are being revealed today for Transformers: War for Cybertron on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

    AIR RAID

    • Autobot
    • Class: Scout
    • Chassis: Jet
    • Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
    • Abilities: Guided Missile, Dash

    Description: Fearless and rash, Air Raid is always ready for a fight. He prefers diving head first into a pack of Decepticons rather than shooting them from afar because it’s more fun. That is his only real goal in life; to have fun. This attitude always seems to place him and his fellows in danger, but he always manages to get himself and his friends out of it.

    BREAKDOWN

    • Decepticon
    • Class: Scout
    • Chassis: Car
    • Primary Weapon: EMP Shotgun
    • Abilities: Shockwave, Dash

    Description: Breakdown is a very capable Decepticon warrior, but has one main underlying problem. He is extremely paranoid that everyone and everything is out to get him. Being in crowded places is nerve wracking for Breakdown, as he feels like everyone is staring at him, judging him. He just wants to blend in and do the duty that the Decepticons require of him in anonymity.

    You can check out images at the expanded game site at TransformersGame.com,  which now offers a fully immersive Cybertron experience with game information, videos and much more. Character profiles will be updated periodically so stay tuned for more exciting reveals in the coming weeks.

    Transformers: War for Cybertron challenges players to become the ultimate weapon as a TRANSFORMERS character in the final, epic war that will determine the survival of their entire race. Armed with a diverse arsenal of lethal, high-tech weaponry and the ability to instantly convert from robot to vehicle at any time, players will engage in heart-pounding battles on land and in the air in this gripping, 3rd person action shooter set in the TRANSFORMERS’ war-ravaged homeland. Complete with several multiplayer modes, Transformers: War for Cybertron allows gamers to play through story missions with their friends in drop in/drop out online co-op, and also create their own TRANSFORMERS character for competitive head-to-head multiplayer modes, choosing among four distinct character classes, personalizing its look and selecting from a huge variety of weapons, skills and abilities.

    The game hits store shelves on June 22, 2010.
