Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark arrives on 3DS, PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on June 24 in North America and June 25 in Australia, Activision confirmed today.

Pre-orders are now open at retail; GameStop and offshoot EB Games are offering bonus DLC in the form of the Weathered Warrior Pack, which makes Thundercracker and Skywarp available in multiplayer, as well as providing two new weapons.

The DLC is not available on Wii U; we’re starting to get a bit concerned about this accelerating trend.

We still don’t officially know who developed Rise of the Dark Spark, which should capitalise on the release of new film Transformers: Age of Extinction, but we think it’s Loadout developer Edge of Reality.
