Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark is a third-person action shooter based on the Transformers franchise, and is the third title in the Cybertron series. Players select from a roaster of transformer characters, each with their own unique abilities, with upgradeable weapons. The game also includes a new online multiplayer mode called Escalation, in which up to four players fight off waves of enemies. The online servers were closed in Spring of 2020.
The storyline is split between events on Earth which take place before the events of the 2014 film Transformers: Age of Extinction, and on Cybertron taking place before the events of the 2012 game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Both storylines surround the Dark Spark, a powerful artifact which can tear holes in dimensions, allowing the two Transformers universes together.
Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark received negative reviews with an average score of 44%, praised for its co-op multiplayer and interesting weapons, but criticized for campaign and storyline and unbalanced difficulty level.
The game was first released in June 2014, and would have received a low 2-star difficulty rating. Unfortunately, Activision closed the online servers to many of their Transformer game titles without warning, in Spring of 2020. Since Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark has 13 online trophies which can no longer be unlocked, the Platinum has therefore become Not Obtainable.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 have a separate list from those on the PS3.
Since the online servers were closed in Spring of 2020, the 13 online trophies, as well as the Platinum, have become Not Obtainable. However, if you still wish to continue collecting those 37 offline trophies, then read on.
There are no difficulty-related trophies, so feel free to start the campaign on Easy mode.
Since there is a chapter select available, there are no missable trophies to worry about. However, if you wish to avoid replaying missions, be sure to check out the Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark trophy guide links under our Links tab for the chapter-specific trophies. These include the Snitches Get Stitches trophy in chapter 1, the Spectacularly Amazing trophy in chapter 3, the Softly Softly Catchee Monkey trophy in chapter 5, the No One Gets Outta Here Alive trophy in chapter 6, the What Could Go Wrong trophy in chapter 7, the I’d Like To Leave Here Please in chapter 8, The Sting Like A trophy in chapter 10, the You Get Nothing Good Day Sir trophy in chapter 11, and both the Tread Lightly and Make Peace Not War trophies in chapter 13.
There are also several collectibles to find. Though luckily, many of these are restricted to one or two chapters. Again, check out the Transformers Rise of the Dark Spark trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details.
After completing the campaign, use the chapter select to mop up any missed trophies, excluding the Covenant Of Primus trophy.
Once you have reached Rank 25, you can activate Prime Mode, which gives you some special abilities, but removes all your weapons and upgrades as you are reset back to Rank 1. You will also lose all progress towards kill-related trophies, and collectibles. For this reason, save activating Prime Mode for last. Once you do, you will unlock the Covenant Of Primus trophy.
Unfortunately, with the servers closed down, this is as far as we can go.
