Game News: The War for Cybertron is coming to the "Transformers: TCG" with "Siege"
This time out the set will focus on the current "War for Cybertron: Siege" toy line! This set will introduce both Battle Masters and Micromasters into the mix. Using a rather creative conversation between Decepticons (along with the IGN article) we now have some key details on the upcoming set:
In keeping with the "Siege" theme, new characters added to the set include Soundwave, Ultra Magnus and Shockwave. Each of their cards will feature some of the fantastic artwork seen on the "Siege" toy packaging.
Battle Master cards will be 88mm tall by 63mm wide. Battle Masters start in robot mode but if they are KO'd, it is flipped to its other mode and played as another character! Private Firedrive has been revealed as one of these cards.
Among the Micromasters being introduced is Red Heat, the Rescue Patrol fire truck. These cards cost much less than larger characters. When tapped, you can scrap a card with a white battle icon from their hand to use its ability.
A new type of action allows you to surprise your opponent on their turn. According to the Facebook write up: "It’s played face down on a turn, sir. If one’s opponent is foolish enough to trigger its Reveal condition, then one gets to turn it face up and play it immediately. Otherwise, it’s scrapped at the end of the controller’s turn."
"War for Cybertron: Siege" will feature 48 character cards and 64 Battle Cards. Each booster pack includes one large character card, one small character card and 6 Battle Cards. The set is due for release on June 28, 2019 in the US and some other regions.
