According to Transformers: Universe's Facebook Page, they will have a livestream on Twitch where they say we will get to see Transformers: Universe in action! Of course, this is British Summer Time, and that means we only have a handful of hours to go until we get that exciting footage! As always, I will update you all when I can, but for the moment, you can give you a simple link so you can make it as well!

Transformers Universe has uploaded new videos showcases two new characters, Autobot Macro and Decepticon Flatline. The free to play browser based MOTA is scheduled for a full launch this summer. For now check out the spotlights embedded below:

Rendering himself invisible he'll bust out of a camo shield and launch a couple of grenades to get the party started right! Ask him nicely and he'll scramble rival signals, enabling his squad to get stuck in and cause some major mayhem.



Flatline has mastered the laws of physics, bending space-time to his whim - when his hammer falls expect lightning storms instead of earthquakes.

Time for some more character updates from the Transformers Universe MOTA game! Their official website has been updated with a grand total of eleven characters, six Autobots and six Decepticons, 6 of which are exclusive to the Founder packs and 6 are new starter bots. The starter bots you get for free when the game launches Starter bots are Monsoon, Triage and Overclock for Autobots and Drive-By, Hotwire and Rampart. We reported on the Founder packs a while ago. But check out below some very nice art for the newcomers: Decepticons Drive-By, Hotwire, Rampart, Astraea Deadheat, Derail, and Autobots Overclock, Triage, Monsoon, Ripraw, Doubletake and Anomaly.

Image


Dripping oil and shedding his peeling paint job due to cosmic rust, Drive-By is the silent Decepticon stalker who rolls up in the dead of night, kills his lights, and waits for the witching hour.

His quarry will know they've stumbled into a nightmare when their circuits spontaneously corrode, and Drive-By's laser rifle turns their shambling corpse into iron filings.


Image


Strap in and get ready for a fast getaway - Hotwire won't stop until he's spun maximum profit out of this galactic arms race.

With a catalog of black-market contacts that even Megatron doesn't know, there are no depths he won't plunder to secure a bargain. He values his Decepticon family as much as his bottom-line - when they come under fire he's got the weapons to heal or close the deal.


Image


Rampart is Megatron's mobile Fort Knox: reinforced by layers of armor bolted onto his superstructure, he has a cast-iron disposition welded for war.

No one's gonna get past this fortified Decepticon, let alone past his grenade launcher, minigun and axe. The word from the trenches is intruders that cross Rampart meet only painful endings.


Image


Take cover! Astraea rains down mines, grenades and rockets as though it was Unicron's second coming.

Infamously lustful for spilled Energon, this Decepticon can call on aerial backup to bury her enemies in crater-sized tombs. When Astraea emerges from the debris wearing a satisfied smile, you know the next salvo will be one shell closer to the apocalypse.


Image


Deadheat is all sleek, servo-seizing lasers and flurrying blades.

Blink and you'll miss him - but your sonic receptors will lock onto his screaming engine, and the motorcade of enemies failing to match this Decepticon's blistering pace. Pushing the red line, he floors it back into battle, slicing circuits and dicing diodes, before boosting off over the horizon.


Image


Derail is a Decepticon who's guaranteed to knock your enemies off track.

A fearless explosives expert, he leaves a trail of Autobot wreckage in his wake. Recognizing that his allies are sometimes as vulnerable as his enemies, he'll happily fix them up - after all, nuking Autobots doesn't count for much if you lose the war.


Image


Bodywork can be deceiving: Overclock's sleek, aerodynamic curves might stop traffic, but what his enemies should really worry about is the advanced technology packed under his hood.

With rockets retrofitted from a starship, a time-bending laser rifle, and a self-destruct system with a twist, Overclock is an Autobot spy who is a master of destruction as well as disguise.


Image


At the center of any Autobot attack is Triage, the short-fused medic.

With a psyche that can switch as quickly as the tide of battle, he's as likely to shock enemies with his defibrillators as he is to patch up his waning pals. When the sirens are wailing and the red lights are flashing, you can't be certain whether Triage will deliver surgical aid, or a surgical strike.


Image


A bringer of unhinged power, Monsoon delivers more destruction than a category 5 storm.

As good close-up as he is at range, when this Autobot rains over the battlefield there's nowhere to hide - enemies will be uprooted by his axe or washed away by his grenade launcher. When the sky clears, like a cleansing tropical sun shower he'll bring life back to his wilting allies.


Image


Steaming down the highway like a meteor on wheels, Ripraw hates to be late for the main event.

But time spent pumping iron pays off once he arrives on the battlefield - he hunkers down with heavy weapons and lobs Decepticons around like dumb-bells. When it's all over this hard-hitting Autobot bypasses the debriefing and rolls straight into the posedown.


Image


A sleek, sophisticated and seldom seen police enforcer, Doubletake is a master of reconnaissance.

With long-range scanning systems and pinpoint spatial awareness, he always picks the perfect moment to strike. By the time his targets realize their systems are shutting down, this Autobot is long gone, scanning for his next mission.


Image


The young and feisty Anomaly is spoiling for a fight and ready to take on the entire Decepticon armada solo.

An unusual hybrid of scientist and soldier, his toxic tendencies tend to leave the enemy infected and quarantined. But reverse him back towards your allies and you'll find this Autobot can clean up even the toughest battlefield fallout.

Whoa, hold up... Rampart?? Oh no you didn't, Jagex...

I got the proof right here that last summer I came up with my own bot called Rampart. A name which has never before been used. http://www.seibertron.com/energonpub/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=96165#p1512574

In my description of him and little concept sketch, I described him as a) a Decepticon, b) a heavy hitter and c) a land vehicle with a pointed plough blade front end.

Coinkydink?
I dunno, people have sued for less is all I'm saying.
Just give us a figure of this guy so I can pretend I have had an effect on the canon TF world at large.

Holy Sh*t! Someone at Jagex could be a big fan of you.

A big number of Beta Invites were sent today, and the game is actually a decent game. A good MOBA style game, though I don't like MOBAs. I managed to like this somehow, it's a pretty fun game, and not as Pay2Win as I thought it would be. Relics are rather easy to get, and I could easily get a new hero after a few hours of gameplay.

Also, here is something not surprising. There is a HUGE number of autobots but a few cons. The autobot base is like FULL! But the Con base is rather empty. However, the Cons are winning the war, %62 precent win-rate right now. Decepticons however are not OP, since the classes/heroes that each faction uses are the same except with different models and names, the guns/weapons have the exact same look/function/s-tech/damage value as it's autobot counterpart.

If done like the WFC/FOC counterparts, (after all they are in the same universe :roll: ), for instance lower health, then I think it could be done.

In amidst all the SDCC news, here's a video game piece for those following the developments of the Transformers Universe MOBA - the addition of two new characters, one per faction, and both zooming in on motorbike altmodes: check out Swagger and Diabla here, and take a look at the info and clips below.

The faction war intensifies between the Autobots and Decepticons with the reveal of the latest two warriors, available to recruit in the next game update.

When his mentor left him, Autobot Swagger had to fend for himself and learn how to fight the hard way. This led to an unorthodox style, combining dazzling swordsmanship with high-tech gadgetry. Over-confidence is now this Autobot's weakness, and his biggest challenge is keeping his mouthplate shut. Only under the right command can he stealth like a shinobi, and strike like a samurai! Find out more about him on the video below and his full bio page.



Decepticon Diabla is notoriously corrupt and devious, and an archenemy to the entire Autobot army. Small and unassuming at first glance, enemies that get too close will find their systems failing, their Energon depolarized, and an arm blade planted in their mainframe. Find out more about her on the video below and her full bio page.



Both of these warriors come with a new vehicle form – motorbikes! Feel the increased agility and ease of making a getaway. Keep an eye on Transformers Universe for more warrior intel – and be sure to discuss these two warriors on our forum.

I started playing it yesterday, and I must say, it is quite good, for a game in beta. I like how you can go into kinda free roam and do random missions with friends. Like just beating terrorcons with other bots. Just endless mission/waves is a good idea. Keep on going whoever made the game, It's pretty awesome!

Tech website Computing were able to have a chat with Jagex' head of IT Barry Zubel, in an interview that may interest the more technologically inclined players of the Transformers: Universe MOBA game. Check out a sample below, and head here for the full piece!

n Cambridge, the city where the studio is based, the tasks aren't quite as mystical, but as Jagex head of IT Barry Zubel told Computing, their completion will reap rewards for both developers and players as the studio prepares to launch its next blockbuster title: Transformers Universe.

"Our biggest project is virtualisation and that's going to be a big winner for us," he said, describing how "we've historically not virtualised anything operationally" due to the limits it would put on game performance – but that's changing.

[...]

"The closer we can push the game servers to our customers, the better the connectivity," said Zubel, who added that while RuneScape is able to function on high latency connections, the upcoming Transformers Universe isn't so tolerant, so Jagex has been attempting to install servers nearer to players.

"Transformers is a little less forgiving because of the game that it is, so we've been looking at placing servers in places where players will be," he said.

A couple of Transformers: Universe MOBA updates, courtesy of their official Facebook page, and it's both for the purple corner of the arena. Check out below the first teaser for the Jagex design for Megatron, inspired by the War for Cybertron character design; also, an additional character teaser complete with potential name reveal: Pandemic. What do you think on these two? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Decepticons of Transformers Universe! We thought we'd share a little advanced teaser with you of a new warrior that's on the horizon. Keep your crazy excitement to a minimum though, we don't want a Pandemic on our hands...

Jeez, rough crowd.

My point is: I almost feel as though this should have come out before TF: Prime had ended. And I know that decent video games aren't made overnight, but come on - this has been in the works since at 2012, and it changed genres several times. Forgive me if I have become disillusioned with Jagex's vision.

I think the point was for it to come out around the time Prime ended... but, delays and such. I'm sure there are a few people at Hasbro who are none too pleased at Jagex's performance here.

Why? This game's backstory makes no sense continuity-wise anyway, so what's the point?

Development hell is not unheard of, and it certainly isn't that valid a criticism of a game. If Transformers Universe was an awful piece of crap, you could effectively call them out on this. However, the game has been well-received and is currently being enjoyed by many.

and it changed genres several times.


And yet, the semi-final product has found a happy medium between all the genres they've considered. Imagine that.

Forgive me if I have become disillusioned with Jagex's vision.


Have you played the game at all yet? If so, I'm not sure what your problem is.

Art direction; this game is pretty much the TF: Prime Online Game. And I know that the recently released artwork of Megatron is not his TFP body per se, but many of the design elements seem to be based on that continuity more than any others.

And I know that decent video games aren't made overnight, but come on - this has been in the works since at 2012,

That is an excellent point, to which I will concede. It's my fault for not actually hearing what people have to say about the game; my immediate assumption with development hell is that the product rarely comes out pristine, if at all - Duke Nukem Forever, the Halo Motion Picture - I may be comparing apples to oranges, but that's just to illustrate my perspective.

and it changed genres several times.

Also a good point. I stand enlightened.

Forgive me if I have become disillusioned with Jagex's vision.

I think problem is a too strong a word in this case. My interest in the game has simply waned over the course of the production. Perhaps disillusioned was also too strong a word on my part.

From the Transformers: Universe front, we've new info on some upcoming updates! They are:

* Challenges will be introduced this Wednesday. Players will be able to challenge one another for rewards. As time progresses, challenges will be given more depth and rewards.

* Drummond Gorge, a new map for the Elimination gametype, is due for release on 17 September. Concurrently released with Drummond Gorge are vidual upgrades for the outer base maps.

* 24 September will see an upgrade for the map "Santa Vega" to rectify some glitches seen on the map, as well as a change to the center of the map to be more vehicle friendly.

* The new gametype "Recon" will be introduced to the game on 1 October. Recon is similar to how Capture the Flag works in Transformers: War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, in that once a player has a flag, they are unable to transform. With its introduction, a new map will also be introduced designed specifically for Recon, with new maps following suit over time.

* New characters in-coming! Jagex-original characters Autobot Outsider and Decepticon Pandemic are coming sometime in September. Two other characters are slated for release in October, but in a neat surprise, they are plucked from Transformers lore... Chromia and Flamewar are joining the Universe fray! No images at this time, though. Not only are they slated to be playable, but two other characters have been leaked to be playable: Autobot inventor and mechanic Wheeljack and the Decepticon with a Ph. D. in narcissism and dismantling, Knock Out! They were leaked along with Outsider, Pandemic, Pitstop, and Contagion not too long ago.

I've been playing this game for a couple of months now, and I still don't get it. If this game is supposedly in a new continuity, then why is everything so Prime-ish? Bumblebee is literally just the Aligned version with G1 horns, Optimus almost looks like a more detailed version of his Rescue Bots form, and Megatron looks like a weird fusion of his WFC, G1 and Prime bodies. Everyone else is just a more greebled, slightly altered version of their TF:Prime equivalents.
