Today, DeNA and Hasbro revealed a variety of new character art for TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game coming soon to iOS and Android.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the first game that lets players command a team of both AUTOBOT and DECEPTICON characters, strategically utilizing powerful abilities to defeat their opponents. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS will feature over 75 iconic characters including classic heroes like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee joining forces with baddies like Megatron and Starscream. The art style mixes retro 80’s appeal with an anime twist that will resonate with Transformers fans both young and old.
In addition, here are some character bios DeNA provided to us:
Bumblebee is always ready for anything. He has an arsenal of gadgets designed just for him, which he can use to meet the needs of any mission. No matter where the Decepticons hide - whether they flee to the deepest ocean, or disappear into the clouds - Bumblebee is ready to pursue and destroy them.
Wheeljack was onboard the Ark ship that initially crashed on Earth. Equal parts medic and inventor, most of the Autobots' scientific advances have come from Wheeljack's lab. Enterprising and outgoing, he's always one of the most popular Autobots. His best invention is a near-impenetrable faceplate, which has been handy when volatile prototype inventions have literally exploded in his face. In combat, his seismic batons ward off enemies.
Autobots | Aerialbots (Hunter)
The newest member of the Aerialbots and the only member that is not a jet plane. His assault helicopter mode gives the team a member with VTOL and hovering capabilities, but he cannot match his teammates' top speed. Being the "new guy" and the slowest flyer of the group makes him feel like he has something to prove. Carries four tracker missiles that process a "spark lock" to their targets. With fellow Aerialbots forms "Superion."
There was a time when the name of Megatron was honored by many across Cybertron But power inevitably corrupts, and none are so powerful as mighty Megatron. Long ago, he forgot he was a hero, and became nothing more than a tyrant. The war he launched eventually drained his home planet of life. Not even the death of a world could sate his hunger for conquest.
Starscream commands one of the most fearsome military units from Cybertron: the Seekers. The squadron has brought him great power and glory, but that means nothing as long as Megatron is the one who rules the Decepticons. Until Starscream can claim that throne, he will have to be content to be king of the Seekers.
Thundercracker lives on fear. Special materials in his jet frame allow him to unleash controlled sonic detonations that can be heard 200 miles away. Streaking across the sky at Mach 6, he wants his enemies to hear him before they see him. He wants them to know he's coming, and cower in fear at their impending doom.
Decepticons | Stunticons (Soldier)
Nasty and underhanded - would rather be scrapped than lose. Prone to overheating, but possesses the greatest pure speed of any Stunticon. Adopting the alt-mode of an advanced concept Formula One race car gives him a sixth gear the Autobots cannot match, but leaves him with a slightly fragile vehicle mode. His fierce competitive streak and unmatched speed makes him the ideal "tip of the spear" for the Stunticon forces. With fellow Stunticons forms "Menasor."
The Transformers Legends Facebook page have posted details of their latest mobile device game episode - featuring the Dinobots, Insecticons, and the big purple himself, Shockwave. Check out details below.
TRANSFORMERS LEGENDS - “RESCUE THE KING” HAS BEGUN!
SLUG and SNARL traverse the Sea of Rust, searching for their leader, the mighty GRIMLOCK. As they are about to give up on their search and look elsewhere, the group is suddenly set upon by HARDSHELL and the INSECTICONS.
The Lightning Strike Coalition put up a valiant fight, destroying many of their foes in the process, but in the end are captured by the overwhelming DECEPTICON forces. Shortly thereafter, they are brought before SHOCKWAVE and an unconscious GRIMLOCK.
Gesturing to their leader, SHOCKWAVE reveals to SLUG and SNARL that it was his plan all along to lure the Lightning Strike Coalition to him, so he could alter them to create new superweapons. With that, he begins his experiments on GRIMLOCK, the sounds of machinery filling the room.
Will the AUTOBOTS emerge unscathed and victorious, or will they be twisted by the alterations? What nefarious plans does SHOCKWAVE have for GRIMLOCK and his team? Find out on TRANSFORMERS Legends - “Rescue the King”!

After the news last month that Jagex employees were being laid off, we now have confirmation from the Transformers: Universe website that the game is effectively shutting down - despite never really exiting the beta phase - as of the end of January 2015. You can read more about this below, including how to recover anything you may have spent on Founder packs.
Today Jagex and Hasbro can confirm that Transformers Universe will close. This decision comes at an important time for both companies as they both realign their plans and focuses for 2015.
What does this mean for our players?
We’re hugely disappointed, but the game will be closing over the coming weeks before its full closure at 10am GMT on 31st January 2015.
As a team, we can’t thank players enough for the support that they have shown us over the last few years of development, and even more so during our BETA period.
The shutdown period will begin from today. As part of the winding down we will be refunding all those that have purchased a Founders Pack, as well as anyone that has purchased relic bundles and starter packs. These refunds should be all processed in the next 30 days. In addition we will be closing the ability for new players to make accounts, those of you that already have accounts will continue to be able to use them until the closure date.
If you haven’t received a refund after 16th January 2015 and believe you should have, then please contact the Jagex customer services team (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will also be pushing an update live today that will switch off the ability for players to buy any more relic packs, or starter bundles.
As mentioned, on 31st Jan 2015 @ 10am GMT we will be shutting down all servers and forums and will freeze all Transformers Universe related accounts. These accounts will then be live for another 60 days (approx.) for any final queries before deletion on 31st March 2015.
Between now and the date of closure the Jagex CM team will continue to operate on the forums and we will provide relevant updates on the website as necessary.
If you have any queries about your account or refunds please contact our customer support team on email@example.com. Please understand that they may be very busy during this time but they will respond as quickly as possible.
Once again we want to thank all of the players that have played Transformers Universe and all those that have worked on the project. We’re sure you have thoughts and feelings that you’d like to share on this, so please do so on our forums. Please bear in mind that this is obviously a challenging time for all involved, especially the CM team. There will be plenty of things we can’t comment on, so please respect their position.

TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS
SAN FRANCISCO –December 10, 2014– DeNA and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today announced TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, a new turn-based tactical combat game based on the TRANSFORMERS universe, is currently in development for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and Android devices. In TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS, players will collect iconic TRANSFORMERS characters, assembling teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS characters, including fan favorites found within the pages of the IDW Combiner Wars series, to battle friends and fans from around the globe. Players and TRANSFORMERS fans can pre-register to receive updates about the game and unlock powerful in-game content for everyone at launch at the website: http://www.transformersbattletactics.com.
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TATICS will be available as a free download and will feature more than 75 classic TRANSFORMERS characters including OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, STARSCREAM, and BUMBLEBEE. Battles are swift and require strategic decision-making to propel players to victory. Each TRANSFORMERS character has unique stats and abilities, which shift as players convert them from robot to their alternate mode. The unique graphic style is inspired by the TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars characters and comic book series. TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS includes an expansive single-player campaign, story-driven in-game events and real-time player-vs-player (PvP) matches for players around the world to engage in strategic battles and rise to the top of the leaderboards.
"TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS blends fast action and strategic gameplay with a style TRANSFORMERS fans of all generations will appreciate,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “From collecting new TRANSFORMERS to creating mash-up teams of AUTOBOTS and DECEPTICONS to battling against friends and fans around the world, players will have an epic amount of content to enjoy once the game ‘Rolls Out’ in 2015.”
TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is the third title in an exclusive three-year agreement between DeNA and Hasbro to develop and publish mobile games based on the TRANSFORMERS franchise. Extending beyond the card-based battling in TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS and the runner action of TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION games – The Official Mobile Game, TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS marks the first mobile turn-based strategy game set in the beloved TRANSFORMERS universe.
"The strategic combat and visual style of TRANSFORMERS: BATTLE TACTICS is a really fresh, fun and exciting take on the TRANSFORMERS brand,” said Mark Blecher, SVP Digital Gaming & Corporate Development at Hasbro, Inc.
