JAGEX REVEAL EXCLUSIVE TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE INFORMATION AT GAMESCON 2011
COLOGNE, GERMANY, August 18, 2011- Jagex Games Studio, one of the largest independent games developers and publishers in the world, and makers of the upcoming TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE browser based MMO for the Western World markets, today released some exclusive details of the title at the Gamescon event in Cologne.
The Jagex team are on hand at the convention to speak to gamers and TRANSFORMERS fans alike about the new MMO slated for release in 2012 and, for the first time to a European audience, the customisation that will be available to players of the new MMO in 2012 will be demonstrated on the fully interactive booth. The booth allows visitors to choose their allegiance to either the AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON factions and customise their choice. Gamescon visitors will then receive a print out of the unique TRANSFORMERS character they have created. When the game launches next year, players will be able to choose from various classes of robots, adding a further variant to the character creation element; already highly anticipated by fans and gamers alike.
While the customisation presented at the convention will offer fans a taste of what is to come within the game, Jagex today exclusively revealed details of one of the much anticipated classes; The Brawler Class.

Transformers Universe executive producer Kris Jones was recently interviewed by Eurogamer regarding the upcoming Transformers MMO. According to Jones beta testing will begin "very soon". The free to play browser based MMO is set to launch in 2012. Click here to read the full interview at Eurogamer.
You can visit the official Transformers Universe website and sign up for email updates by clicking here.
We're launching this in 2012, so it goes without saying that the beta will be soon.
A team of 55 people are making Transformers Universe - a number that will eventually swell to 70. The project was signed in February, Jones revealed, and has ramped up in "the last three or four months". That gives the project a maximum of 23 months development to make a 2012 release, which is ambitious for an MMO.
Some people want to be tanks, some people want to be motorbikes, some people want to be sports cars, some people want to be an SUV. It's very much down to the person. It's very easy to say, 'Oh I want to be a Jet,' but I think you'll end up with a wide variety of what people will want to be," said Jones.
Just in case you missed it here's the teaser that was released last week.
You may have thought that you had seen all of our major announcements regarding Auto Assembly 2011, but we said we had a few more special announcements that we had held back - and here's one of the biggest that we have been wanting to tell you all about for quite some time...
