Transformers Universe MMO Beta Coming Very Soon

Transformers Universe executive producer Kris Jones was recently interviewed by Eurogamer regarding the upcoming Transformers MMO. According to Jones beta testing will begin "very soon". The free to play browser based MMO is set to launch in 2012. Click here to read the full interview at Eurogamer.

We're launching this in 2012, so it goes without saying that the beta will be soon.


A team of 55 people are making Transformers Universe - a number that will eventually swell to 70. The project was signed in February, Jones revealed, and has ramped up in "the last three or four months". That gives the project a maximum of 23 months development to make a 2012 release, which is ambitious for an MMO.


Some people want to be tanks, some people want to be motorbikes, some people want to be sports cars, some people want to be an SUV. It's very much down to the person. It's very easy to say, 'Oh I want to be a Jet,' but I think you'll end up with a wide variety of what people will want to be," said Jones.


Just in case you missed it here's the teaser that was released last week.

I am really curious to see how this turns out. I hope some actual gameplay shots pop up soon. The "free to play, browser based" part has me wondering what this is actually going to be like.

To me, Battle for The Allspark MK1 was good. I hope this is going to be something like that and War For Cybertron. Most likely still the latter one.

And I don't mean battling on plates.
