With the new Transformers game, Rise of the Dark Spark, just days away from release, Activision has released a new trailer that features the return of one of the more prominent online modes in the series, Escalation.

In this mode, players will choose between Autobots and Decepticons, then take to the open battle across a number of maps, activating defenses that will work in their favor while hunting down rival players. These include turrets, barricades and other traps that will turn their opponents into scrap metal.

On top of that, the video also details tactics when it comes to survival, such as finding cover when necessary and making sure you keep good pace with the enemy. They aren't going to stand still for your bullets, after all. Or plasma rifles, as the case may be.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark releases on June 24th for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and 3DS.
