As showcased in the trailer, Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy – Earthrise continues the series’ trend of cel-shaded animations and cinematic machine wars. The graphics are all impressive and the upcoming storyline is also equally intriguing.
It appears that in Earthrise, Hasbro is setting the stage for the Mercenaries to emerge as the franchise’s new villains. The robots’ claims, after all, do not align with their shady intentions (they say there are no factions, yet they have a rallying logo).
So its quite likely that in the upcoming chapter, the Autobots and Deceptions will join hands to defeat a common enemy. Earthrise might also include Beast Wars’ Maximals and Predacons, as to help lead the story into its final act, Kingdom.
On Saturday, during Hasbro’s Pulse Con, Netflix dropped the first trailer for Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy – Earthrise. As per Netflix’s official synopsis for the new show, Earthrise finds Megatron confronting a grave dilemma: the Allspark is gone, and the Deceptions will perish if they remain on the dying Cybertron.
Megatron must, therefore, to devise a strategy in order to save his faction and to continue his reign. As for the Autobots, they are stranded in space after escaping Cybertron. Their aim is to find a safe haven, and for that, they embark on a desperate mission which leads them into an unexpected encounter with the nomadic Mercenaries.
Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy – Siege had opened to rave reviews on Netflix. Critics were in awe of the series’ inventive take on the franchise’s classic premise, and they commended the show for its stunning cinematography and gorgeous visuals. Critics believe that Siege laid the groundwork for an epic story yet to come, and they hope that Earthrise will continue the narrative with more fervent and consequential storytelling.
As it has been depicted in the trailer, Earthrise will center itself on the new, mysterious faction of Transformers, the Mercenaries. Fans have viewed the Mercenaries with skepticism since the start of War for Cybertron, and now they will finally get to witness the faction’s ambitions as they play out in the new show.
