Seibertron.com staff admin El Duque has spotted a very interesting article on his hounding travels, from the games section of VentureBeat, a tech and business news blog. The site had a chat with Jagex chief executive officer Mark Gerhard, and they talked about various topics, some of which have been previously reported, such as the Decepticon-Autobot disparity and the gameplay style - make sure you head to the official Seibertron.com thread for the game for more!

In other news, however, Gerhard has an intriguing point about their collaboration with Hasbro. Read on below!

Jagex has created all the original Transformers featured in the game — such as Duststorm, Firebreaker, and Showdown — from scratch, working closely with brand owner Hasbro.

“The IP [intellectual property] has been going for the last 30 years,” said art director Gerard Miley, pointing out that Jagex was free to draw on the entire range of Transformer generations for inspiration. “Universe is a key word,” he added, while also noting the key influence of the Transformers Prime animated television series. “The DNA of Prime is in our game,” he said.

Hasbro has no Transformers manual to use when creating a new bot, “so it’s really just studying the visual language of it,” said Miley. “Using clever shapes and a little bit of trickery to get the transformations working.”

[...]

Working so closely with Hasbro has yielded some great cross-promotion opportunities for Transformers Universe.

“It’s been a tremendous relationship,” said Gerhard. “They’ve been really blown away by how we’ve paid homage to the brand.”

With that in mind, Gerhard told me that Hasbro “has taken a number of bots we’ve created and turned them into a toy line.”

The toys won’t interact with the game, as we’ve seen with titles like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, but their presence on toy store shelves will be a great boost to the Transformers Universe brand as well as vindicating the quality of Jagex’s original Transformer designs.

While Hasbro itself is “superkeen” to promote the game on this toy line, Gerhard is wary that most of the people who buy the toys are quite young. He wants the game itself to be well received within the industry and with older gamers before leveraging the “extra footfall” that the toy line would create. “I think it’s a fantastic enhancer,” he said.


While this is the first official confirmation we have about a Universe game-based toyline, it does not come as that much of a surprise - after all, we've already seen some odd bolts cropping up in the Transformers: Prime (RID) line. Remember them?

As other members of staff have also pointed out, the game has been in development limbo for ages, and we've heard and seen from one of its concept artists previously too, with clear Prime-esque concept designs too.

The Transformers Universe YouTube channel has uploaded extended bio videos for the previously teased warriors Catapult and Shellshock. Additional images and technical data for each can be found by visiting the Transformers Universe website. We've embedded the videos below:

Catapult moves in the shadows with the strut of a notorious gunslinger and reads cross-winds like a circling hawk.

Place Catapult at long range with her Phase Chamber primed, sniper rifle cocked and license-to-terminate activated; she'll drop her mark grill-down in the dirt for keeps. A mysterious loner, the only trace this Autobot exists is a tag scratched into every 'Con she dispatches to the scrapyard.



Retirement was never one of Shellshock's plans: he's been holed up in his armory feverishly waiting for the call.

Faceplate-deep in munitions and customizing his beloved miniguns, he ensured burst rates, muzzle velocities, calibers and cartridges all got a little love. A career killer, you won't have to ask him twice to rejoin the fight. Put this slayer in mid-range with a directive for destruction and Shellshock will have a blast every time.
