The first episode was released on Verizon go90 this week in the United States. It will be released on Sohu in China and Vimeo and YouTube for the rest of the world.

Here’s the synopsis:

Taking place 40 years after the great war on Earth, the eight-episode digital series introduces all-new characters that, combined with characters fans have known for decades, will tell the Transformers storytelling in an exciting new way.

The Autobots and Decepticons have disbanded and returned to Cybertron.  With the days of Optimus Prime and Megatron over, Cybertron is now ruled by a triumvirate. However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners. Who will stand-up to this threat to ensure that the fragile peace that was 4 million years in the making remains?

The voice talent includes Anna Akana, Jon Bailey, Charlie Guzman, Ricky Hayberg, Amy Johnston, Jason Marnocha, Lana McKissack, Ben Pronsky, Patrick Seitz, Frank Todaro and Abby Trott.

New episodes will be released each week.
