I don't think it's "based" on the book, but the series could use the book as the backstory. The book sets up a backstory that is similar to the familar G1 universe but also similar to the backstory of the movieverse.

Allegedly, Exodus is supposed to be the foundation for WFC and Prime. Problaby more an inspiration to those two stories, than a 'bible' for them to follow.

The new promotional picture looks pretty nice IMO and shows that movie/animated blend that they seem to be going for.

In that pic, the Decepticons look like Animated-meets-Beast-Machines.

The promo that was released today looks terrible IMO. I've seen better CGI in video games. It doesn't look much better than the old G2 commercials.

Hopefully this is a very early clip and they've still got a long way to go putting the finishing touches on the show.

What I found really interesting was an article in USA Today that stated -

Of course, there will be accompanying toys
If there are going to be any, Hasbro have done a really good job of keeping them under wraps.

People shouldn't expect something on the quality level of WFC's CG intro, because that thing was made as a one-off, not a weekly tv series.

One would expect at least something akin to Clone Wars. The CGI here looks very 1990s and I am also confused why they would use unfinished material to promote a show that is just about to begin.

Lucasfilm Animation has roots with Pixar and George Lucas kind of has a comparatively unlimited budget for his Star Wars projects. TF Prime has animation from an obscure Japanese studio and it is doubtful that it has anywhere near as much money to spend.

Besides, saying it's 1990s animation is exaggerating.

I agree that it's not as bad as 90s animation, but still... IMO Beast Wars and Beast Machines had better quality CG animation for their time compared to the animation in Prime by current day standards. It's not bad though... just a bit too "clean" looking. Would look heaps better if they just 'dirtied' things up a bit. But of course, this is just a glimpse, maybe other parts of the show will look grittier.
