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 beta will open on:
12th December 2012 @ 18.00 - 20.00 EST

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




HOW TO ACCESS THE GAME?

Thanks for your commitment commander - we await your report from the front lines.

Just 2 hour sessions? I find that underwhelming.

That's good, thought I was going a bit crazy. It's weird though, I know there's a disclosure agreement, but I thought we'd hear from someone!

We first heard about an MMO game in March of 2011, maybe earlier. Thursday, June 2nd, 2011 was when it was revealed as "Transformers: Universe."

The thing is, I dont play video games. So I probally passed any stories on this thinking it was related to WFC/FOC. There was a point where every day we were getting a new image of Bruticus or Metroplex and I stopped reading stories about games.

Seibertron member dedcat dropped by to let us know the Transformers: Universe MMO Beta testing is still moving along. Those who were lucky enough to be chosen for the Beta test are receiving emails with a link to a survey regarding computer specs and a few images. See the email and images below.


Commander, action is required of you. To take your next step towards the closed BETA program, we need some additional information. Please click on the link below to complete a brief survey and provide some information about your computers specifications.

This information is vital for BETA access; only those participating in the BETA survey will be able to participate in the closed BETA program. This data will only be used by the Transformers team and will not be shared with any third parties.

I'll still happily try out the beta, but the fact that it's a League of Legends clone and not an MMORPG irritates me. Maybe I'll feel less bitter about it once I've tried it, still, was looking forward to making my own character.

No more character creation. Instead you use characters made by Jagex. Select from a list of preset characters, and earn points to unlock new characters. Like they do in League of Legends (which is a sh*t game).

Well, Jagex did turn RuneScape (was such a great game until this year) into a World of Warcraft clone with that Evolution of Combat crap. I haven't played since then mainly because of that (the other part is the fact I don't have a computer that doesn't support playing it anymore). >:oP

...Seriously? WHY? WHY did they remove that feature? Wasn't that the ONE big thing from the initial trailers!? "Create your own transformer!" and such. Ugh, how asinine.

Why does Jagex do that with us Transformers Fans, first they say this will be a game where we can create our own characters, now it will become some sort of a MOBA game... :-x

This is Jagex we're talking about: they may make pretty good games, but the make monumental screw-ups.

Ah ok. But if that's really true if that game becomes just a MOBA game, I think Hasbro becomes also a little mad about that? :???:

Transformers: Universe................in the immortal words of Megatron from 1987's Transformers: The Movie, "I still function." Jagex's Transformers: Universe wesbsite has made a few recent updates to their website. They've added new downloadable wallpapers, which can be found by clicking here, and according to their Comms page a new round of Beta testing is underway. We've mirrored the wallpapers below, click here to visit the Transformers: Universe website. Hopefully they're getting closer to a full blown launch.

Yep. They did some kinda switcheroo where they said it was going to be open world and character customization, and everyone got excited, then they said it was going to be a dota clone.

Thought so. Guess I'll be skipping this one then. We need another DotA-clone like we need the plague.

To be fair, there are probably a fair number of people excited for it still. They have poor taste in games, but they're excited about it! ;)

Does the yellow guy with the rocket launchers in the last pic look like Guiledart with a modern alt to anyone else? You know, with all his puppet-kibble-mass moved to his back?

Female Armada Sideways somehow looks...bland in execution. Maybe because he got so many body changes over time that switching genders just seems like jumping the shark.

I just looked that game up and it looks like complete ass. I REALLY hope that's not what this game turns out to be.
