NetDragon, the same guys behind the curious-looking Dungeon Keeper Online, were this week revealed as the developers for a new massively-multiplayer online game based on the Transformers licence.
The game has been officially sanctioned by Hasbro, will be a role-playing game, and… will only be released (at least initially) in China, “Asia”, Russia (and CIS states), the Middle East and North Africa. No North America, no Western Europe, no Australasia.
There are no screenshots, no concept art and no further information on the game (or whether it’s based on the original series, comics, Michael Bay’s movies, whatever), so all you’ve got left to do is wildly speculate, dream and hope for the best. Who knows, it may even be good, and as Company of Heroes Online has shown, it’s not that unusual for former Asia-only games to be released in the West.

Getting excited about the new War For Cybertron Downloadable Content? Well the insiders over at Xbox have cooked up a little preview for what's in store for everyone tomorrow. We're getting five new characters, two new multiplayer maps and two new escalation maps. The new characters are not entirely new, three of them were of the pre-order variety - Demolishor, Shockwave and Jazz. The two new faces are Onslaught and Scattorshot, providing a little more chassis differentiation in multiplayer, and more variety in Escalation. The new multiplayer maps Havok and Fortress will test your teamwork, while the escalation maps District and Forsaken will stretch your Autobot or Decepticon brethren to the limit. We'll let Matt Krystek and the folks over at XBox Inside to take it away!
The first downloadable content for WFC will be $10.00 on the PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on XBox Live.

The DLC also contains two new multiplayer maps, and also doubles the number of maps for the Horde-like Escalation mode to four."
