With Transformers: Age of Extinction stomping into theaters come summer, it's only natural a new battle-riffic videogame would be launched to accompany it.  Here's the first trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, a rip-roaring space shooter with a pretty lame title, set to be released sometime later this year.  Edge of Reality developed the combat game to be published by Activision, which lets you power up and melt metal as a soldier of either the Autobots or the Decepticons clan. 

Here's an official synopsis:

Serving as a follow-up to both the upcoming "Transformers" live-action film and Activision's Transformers: War for Cybertyron and Transformers: Fall of Cybertron titles, Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark jumps worlds and factions as it weaves the tale of the hunt for an ancient relic as powerful as the Matrix of Leadership – the Dark Spark. Players will be able to switch between the heroes of the noble Autobots and the nefarious Decepticons throughout the single-player campaign. Similar to High Moon Studios' "Cybertron" entries in the highly-regarded series, gameplay features nimble, fast-paced running-and-gunning combat paired with traversal and vehicle action across open battlefields for large-scale, dynamic conflicts.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is set to liftoff June of 2014 and available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
