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!

Been playing this for some time and I enjoy it. Nice to see they got Peter Cullen and Frank Welker to do the voices. Quite pleased with it thus far.

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!

[quote]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.[/quote]

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!

[quote]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...[/quote]

Maybe it would be funny if the game was not coming out soon and it was not in open beta.



But since thats not the case your joke is crap.


Not funny

Megatron looks he has a form in between his Fall for Cybertron and Prime versions.

Definitely want that Megatron as a figure. Or upgraded-FOC Megatron. Or really, ANY decent voyager Megatron.

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.
