The story begins in England during the old times or specifically called the Dark Ages. There you could see King Arthur and his knights losing the epic battle with nothing more than to hope for a miracle. Their hope depended on a wizard named Merlin, but the hope among the men was low because everyone knew Merlin as a drunken old man, and he was. When they thought it was all over Merlin found a Cybertronian Knight which he asked for help. The Knight granted Merlin a staff that had a power to control over Dragonstorm (a huge 3 headed robot dragon) that managed to turn the fight at the last minute and to bring the victory to King Arthur and his knights.
In the present time, the situation with Autobots is very poor as Transformers are deemed illegal since the battle in Hong Kong in the fourth Transformers franchise. Only a few Autobots remain on the planet Earth hiding from the TRF while Optimus Prime is long gone, frozen in space looking for his creator. The biggest resistance group is led by Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) along with Bumblebee, Hound, Drift, Crosshairs, and Grimlock. The story continues on many different paths across the planet while the biggest threat approaches planet Earth – Cybertron. The plan was to use the staff of Merlin so they could drain the life out of planet earth and use it to rebuild Cybertron. Luckily Bumblebee managed to knock some sense and bring Optimus Prime back to the good side. Optimus managed to defeat Quintessa with the use of Excalibur and once again stop the earth from total devastation.
