Optimus Primal Arrives in Transformers: Forged to Fight

To kick off the beginning of an all-new year, Kabam has revealed that players can now add the fan-favorite Optimus Primal to their team in Transformers: Forged to Fight.

Faction: Maximal
Class: Brawler

The Maximal starship Axalon, commanded by Optimus Primal was pulled into a Transwarp Portal while in pursuit of a Predacon warship. Stranded on ancient Earth, Primal and his crew of Maximals fought the Beast Wars to preserve the timeline and protect all life in the galaxy.

Signature Ability – Isn’t That Just Prime

Optimus Primal hopes for the best, but always prepares for the worst. Damaging Debuffs have shorter durations and recover health when they expire.

  • Damaging Debuffs expire 8% faster for each Armor Buff on Optimus Primal. Optimus Primal gains 1~5% of his max Health each time a Bleed on him expires.

Special Attacks:

Special 1 – Law of the Jungle

Optimus Primal launches into the air to bring justice to his foes.

  • If Optimus Primal has received any Bleeds this fight he will inflict Bleed on the opponent that deals 30~38% of Attack over 4 seconds. The strength of the Bleed increases by 20% for each Bleed inflicted on Optimus Primal this fight.

Special 2 – Beast Warrior

The quickest way to peace, is to end the battle quickly.

  • 50% chance each sword hit to inflict Bleed, Dealing 40~60% of Attack as damage over 5 seconds.

Special 3 – Gorilla Warfare

When it comes to dealing with Predacons, sometimes brutal is best.

  • Optimus Primal’s rage grants him the maximum amount of Armor Buffs.
  • 100% chance to inflict Attack Down, reducing the opponent’s Attack Rating by -20% for 32 seconds.

Hasbro Reveals the Next Transformer to Wield the Matrix of Leadership

optimus-primalEarlier this month Hasbro gave fans a chance to vote who the next Transformer to wield the Matrix of Leadership would be. Fans got a chance to vote for Ultra Magnus, Star Saber, Deathasaurus, and Optimus Primal.

The voting was multi-step with fans first choosing the leader of three factions, Chaos, Order, and Honor, and then it was narrowed down to three candidates and one wildcard.

At Toy Fair, Hasbro announced the winner, Optimus Primal.

With this version of Optimus Primal he’s a warlord who dreams of a Cybertron ruled by beasts. In 2018 we’ll see Primal assume the Matrix of Leadership when the “Power of the Primes” story kicks into gear.

Primal was the protagonist leader of the Maximals in the Beast Wars television series. He’s received a few different toy versions and has appeared in comics as well as television series.

It’s unknown exactly how this will impact the current IDW Publishing Transformers series, but toys released often are related to comics being published.
