Universal Studios Singapore has released another preview video for the upcoming Transformers The Ride, which will open to the public on December 3, 2011.

The park's new addition is based on the Transformers movie series, and will place riders into the center of a battle between the human-friendly Autobots and the evil Decepticons. The video, embedded below, focuses on EVAC, the new Autobot that will carry guests on their journey.

Transformers The Ride's scenes will include subway tunnels, city streets and rooftops, with EVAC being hunted down by the Decepticons. The story of the 4-minute ride is said to be a "natural follow-up" to the movies, rather than based on them directly. It will be told through a variety of simulator and 3D effects.

The attraction's waiting area will be themed around a top-secret facility operated by NEST, the shadowy organisation that features in the Transformers movies. At its heart will be a shard of the AllSpark, a cube of energy that creates life from mechanical objects. This triggers the ride's plot, with the Decepticons determined to get their hands on the shard.

Universal Studios Hollywood is planning its own version of the new ride, which will be known simply as Transformers: The Ride - 3D. The US version is due to open in spring 2012.
