SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS Introduce Order and Chaos to Earth Wars Saga
September 14, 2018 — LONDON — Today, a brand new update comes to real-time combat strategy mobile game TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, serving as the worldwide introduction of the SENTIUS TWINS, SENTIUS MAGNUS and SENTIUS MALUS. Fans can check out the new characters, which are now part of the Transformers universe, by downloading the award-winning mobile game from Backflip Studios and Space Ape Games on the App Store and Google Play.
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. To learn more about the history of these two new characters, and the role they play in TRANSFORMERS: EARTH WARS, fans can watch the making of video here and an introduction from writer Simon Furman here.
