It looks like Earth has been ravaged by the Decepticons. The humans must band together with the Autobots in order to save humanity. More specifically, Splash Damage explains it like this: “The gravest threat to humanity has arrived. And it’s already won. Earth is no longer ours; it belongs to them. All we have left is our hope for the Autobots, as we salvage them from the rubble left behind.”
