Our friends at Jagex dropped by let us know their upcoming Transformers Universe MMO will be featured on the cover of this month's EDGE magazine and receive an eight page article detailing the process of building your own Transformer. Click here to visit the EDGE website, we've mirrored the covers below.

Also a friendly reminder they are still accepting registrations for the beta, click here to register if you haven't already.

The enduring war between Autobots and Decepticons spills onto Edge’s cover this month, as the opposing sides occupy two different designs – Guardian and Oppressor, both of which you can see below – for issue 248 of Edge, out November 22. The reason, of course, is Jagex’s upcoming MMOG Transformers Universe, which we look at in detail in our lead feature.

Motto: "I ain't got time to bleed!"
Weapon: Gattling Gun
Last month we reported that Jagex's Transformers: Universe MMO would be featured on the cover of EDGE magazine as well receive an 8 page article within. That article is now available to read online. Click here to visit the EDGE website and view the full article, we mirrored the screenshots below.

Rather than use a traditional MMOG-style tabbed-targeting control system, which involves the player manually selecting targets, Universe adopts a more action game approach, locking onto the nearest enemy in the middle third of the screen. The aim is to keep the game fluid, while affording control over what you’re hitting, with aiming reticles and subtle zoom-ins creating what Horton calls a “Top Gun-ny vibe”. Feedback on firing itself is satisfyingly meaty and powerful, while a weapon-specific power bar lends an active element to combat. Some ranged weapons require time to acquire a lock; some have cooldowns; others, like Vanquish’s hammer, charge up and only deal top damage when the bar’s maxed out.


We move on to a contested area, Cooper switching to a smaller bot, which transforms into a red sports car. Situated under a huge dam is an Energon field, ripe for the mining. The aim for both the Decepticons and Autobots is to drop Energon probes into the ground and then remain within 10 metres of them to absorb the Energon they extract. The closer you are to them, the faster they deal it out, so the game’s about keeping position as both teams race to collect 1,000 units first. Complicating matters is the fact that the process can wake Terrorcons, which attack both sides, and that greedy players can simply keep the Energon they earn for themselves.

It’s a fast-paced brawl with a clear objective, one that earns the winning team the opening of a new portal for a short period that leads to the next battleground, a broken, burning city. As such, as each faction wins battlegrounds, they get to move on to the next in a progression that’s managed by two storylines, one for the Decepticons and one for the Autobots. It’s another product of Horton’s background with GTA: “We can’t do this game without telling a story," he says. But it’s not simply the result of a mandate from Hasbro’s legacy with expressing Transformers through narrative-driven cartoons and film, and nor is it Horton falling back to home comforts. “Obviously, all the stuff I did with Sam and Dan Houser was about that, but what we’re aspiring to make is a suite of different battlefields that we need to give context to. I’m not knocking a Quake level, but we don’t know why they’re there. I think story’s very important for that."

You can't expect a full 3d game to run on microsoft paint or flash (that will flood 'n crash your computer in seconds).

Be glad you don't have to install Unreal Tournament 3, or Crytech engine.

News, news and it has been news for about 10 years it seems.

If you were lucky enough to be selected for the closed beta testing phase of Jagex's upcoming MMO Transformers Universe tomorrow is your big day! AngryChad of the TFW2005 boards has reported receiving an email from Jagex announcing the closed beta testing will begin tomorrow. See the email mirrored below:

Image


The time has come, friends and family. You have been selected from hundreds and thousands of applicants based on a combination upon your computer specifications and feedback, for access to the first wave of closed BETA sessions - prepare for war!

The second session is on:
16th December 2012 @ 14.00 - 16.00 EST




HOW TO ACCESS THE GAME?

To battle in the closed BETA log in to TransformersUniverse.com from 18:00 onwards on the 12th December. The first time you load the game it may take a little while.
