Excellent.

Would've liked to see a Prowl/Grimlock over Scattershot. Same with Onslaught....

Onslught i can see fitting pretty well and it looks like they have done him justice.

Scattershot didn't look very Scattershot-ey. Grimlock as a War Within style Tank would hae been badass, especially as the bots only have one tank mould at present (altho i am assuiming this is what 'shot will be, and that 'slaught will leader class for similar reasons on the con side).

Ya know, I didnt even think about what class Scattershot would be, I just assumed jet, silly me. Going off of your assumption, I think a motion should be sent to Hasbro to add Grimlock.

What classes are Shockwave and Onslaught? I assumed leader and tank, respectively, my copy came with Jazz so I never bothered to look at those two.

i had assumed it was just DL - in terms of size wouldn't seem worth putting on a disc or sending to stores but that could be my elitist x-box live view of the world.

Shockwave will be a scientist as he has the mad flying skillz.

Onslaught i am guessing leader, he wasn't a pre-order exclusive tho so not sure.

DLC is as it states,downloadable. Only time they issue a disk is for expansions. Guess you'll have to fix those internets.

Meant Demolisher not Onslaught. And Shockwave as a scientist is boo, curious if they're worried they'll confuse people if he was next to Soundwave. Ah well, suppose I cant complain too much, they did finally make an amazing TF game that wasnt based on some crap movie.

yeah Demolisher is soldier/tank class.

Think they painted themselves into a bit of a corner with Shockers as only scientists can fly.

edit, press release as follows;

--------

We are pleased to announce that the DLC pack will include the following:



§ Two brand new characters: Fan favorites SCATTERSHOT and ONSLAUGHT, whose named characters will be playable in Escalation mode and chassis will be accessible in traditional multiplayer



§ Three previous retailer-exclusive characters: SHOCKWAVE, DEMOLISHOR and JAZZ, playable in the aforementioned modes



§ Four brand new maps:



o Escalation maps DISTRICT and FORSAKEN

o Multiplayer maps HAVOK and FORTRESS

Finally more Escalation maps! Once you get the achievement for it, theres really no point in playing ever again, hopefully that will resurrect my interest.
