Good news for fans of the Hub's Transformers Prime series. Online game magazine Kotaku.com is reporting the online Transformers game being developed by Jagex for launch in 2012 will partially take place in the Transformers Prime universe. The MMO will also feature characters from Generation one and other Transformers continuities. To what degree the game will be influenced by Transformers Prime is unknown, but it looks like Hasbro will be focusing their attention on Transformers Prime after this summer's Transformers DOTM.

Which continuity will the game be set in? First generation? The movies? The new animated television show?


Just heard from Jagex public relations that the MMO will be based partly on Transformers Prime, the new animated series airing on the Hub network...

COnfirmatioon of an MMO...NICE! ANd I will be happy to take a TF:Prime themed game...which makes sense as in 2012 that will be carrying the franchise. SOme G1 toons thrown in are just for good measure. The style also makes it more simple for the programmers as they don't necessarily have to worry about oodles of detailing on the bots like in WFC- which is a good thing and a bad thing all at the same time; it keeps it simple for the programmers and for mid-level PCs on the good side. On the bad side WFC looked amazing...I guess we'll just have to take WFC 2 as a consolation prize.

Ugh...Based on TF Prime? That right there makes me not even want any further info on the game. Hate the show, hate the character designs on the show. :BOOM:

Prime, huh? I'm underwhelmed. Of course, I won't be surprised to see the whole thing end up as something more like Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures than WoW (or even a fun MMO :P ) but I can hope.

Of course, another possibility is that we'll each get to create our own kind of annoying human to be babysat by various Transformer NPCs.

I'm hoping against this as well, but I'd bet in favor of it, especially with such a short timetable for release (then again, delays are inevitable with MMOs, as mentioned earlier). And let's be honest: this game is going to be aimed at a younger crowd- older than the toys, but still aimed at the kids the toys and series are focused on- and MMOs are difficult for kids to comprehend often. Hell, I still have problems with WoW every once in a while, and I'm pushing 40. The Clone Wars game is a disaster and is already failing miserably according to numbers, so we may get lucky and find this game aimed at the young teen audience. but I'm not holding my breath.

I think RuneScape is a good game... Not as good as Pirates Online, but just about. :-(

Never even heard the term MMO until I read this thread. I for one have zero interest in that kind of game, or for that matter any kind of game where the main object is to go shoot or beat up other guys playing the same game (any of the one-on-one fighter games or things like Goldeneye multiplayer, which my roommates in college used to play). Anything that lives up to the Transformers Armada game for playstation 2 and has levels, development, and an end is fine with me.

Such a comment is uncalled for.

I hated that game. :evil: That game played a part in helping me turn into the festering, phycopathic, skitzofrantic, self-loathing, maniac I am today.

I never speak of it.

Interesting. Did you hate it as bad as the Movie 2007 game?

I actually liked the 07 movie game. Solely because you get to blow up buildings. So, the days when I was just pissed off at everything (like every day), I just played that game and I felt...good. :twisted:

Online, yes. It's suppose to be a Massively Multiplayer Online game, like World of Warcraft or DC Universe Online.
