As Michael Bay plans to shoot Transformers 4 later this year, some plot details for the fourth installment in the franchise have started to surface. We know that Transformers 4 won’t include any of the human characters from the previous films (save for a possible Josh Duhamel cameo), Mark Wahlberg will be the leading human character, and Bay has stated that they’ve “redesigned everything” to take advantage of new robots… and of course new toys

Now a production notice from Michigan granting Transformers 4 permission to shoot in Detroit with a hefty tax incentive this spring has revealed some of the first solid plot details for the film. Per the Michigan Film Office (via CS), Transformers 4 is expected to film in the metro Detroit area this spring. This isn’t the franchise’s first time in Detroit, as Dark of the Moon shot there as well.

The synopsis for the picture, according to the press release:

As humanity picks up the pieces, following the conclusion of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Autobots and Decepticons have all but vanished from the face of the planet. However, a group of powerful, ingenious businessman and scientists attempt to learn from past Transformer incursions and push the boundaries of technology beyond what they can control – all while an ancient, powerful Transformer menace sets Earth in his crosshairs. The epic adventure and battle between good and evil, freedom and enslavement ensues.

Transformers 4 is set for a June 27, 2014 release date.
