Transformers: Earth Wars to debut all-new twin characters!
The popular Transformers: Earth Wars mobile game has brought many hours of fun gameplay to the Transformers community since it hit screens in 2016. On September 14, Space Ape Games/Backflip Studios will bring in two all-new faces to keep the war going: twin characters Sentius Magnus and Sentius Malus!
This press release detailing the characters’ origins and motivations was accompanied by this release video:
“In the early days of Cybertron, the home world of the Transformers bots, SENTIUS NOBILIUS served as an honorable guardian of the relics of the PRIMES, the gods of the Transformers universe. To do this task he was given a sword of legendary power, the SWORD OF BALANCE, a blade with the power of creation and destruction. He was betrayed by one of the PRIMES, who, using his own sword against him, split his spark in two. This destroyed SENTIUS NOBILIUS, but created two new sibling warriors: SENTIUS MAGNUS, the guardian of light, and SENTIUS MALUS, the guardian of darkness. Each of these bots now carries one half of the sword, which was split. SENTIUS MAGNUS now fights for the Autobots, and SENTIUS MALUS for the Decepticons.”
It’s a refreshing bit of new blood: yet more evidence that a franchise that’s gotten really good at harkening back to older, established characters can still bring in new faces.
Don’t forget to catch a Space Ape Games livestream with Transformers legend and Earth Wars scribe Simon Furman on September 6, Thursday, at 4:00 PM UTC, for a short, sharp lesson on Sentius Magnus and Sentius Malus!
