Not in the States. It's in limited beta release in some territories.

I have been playing the game for a couple of weeks now in The Netherlands. It's quite good. Just wish there would be more missions.

Everyone who's gonna play the game and will be looking for an alliance: Primus Knights are looking for members.

I installed the new version. Interestingly, both of my Scavengers (I had a 1 and a 2 star) got bumped up a level, so now I have a 2 and a 3 star Scavenger. They tweaked the ship, and the recharge times. Overhauled the strike level of bases, which I like. If my supposedly 1600 power team could take a base that recommended 2400 power, something was up. Not sure yet what all else has changed. Hopefully I can get some of those new bots.

Oh, with the addition of Tantrum, Headstrong, Rampage, and Divebomb, they now have all 5 Predacons in the game. Wonder if we'll see the option to combine into Predaking, and other combiners, soon.

EDIT: Managed to pull Tantrum from the space bridge...... don't tell Hasbro but I'm pretty sure they modeled him after MMC's Bovis.

I compared it to his toy and various fictional depictions and it doesn't resemble them nearly as much as Bovis. SpaceApe, I see what you're playing at.

Howdy fellow Seibertronians, we have some exclusive character art created for Seibertron.com by the Transformers: Earth Wars art team to share with you. They've included a character bio along with the artwork. The inaugural character is none other than everyone's favorite news admin's spirit animal, Alpha Bravo!

Alpha Bravo

Forget speed - that's for others. Alpha Bravo is all about precision and manoeuvrability - his helicopter alt. mode tailor made for getting into tight spots no other flyer can reach.Nevertheless, Alpha Bravo has the tiniest bit of an inferiority complex when in the company of his fellow Aerialbots, and sometimes takes unnecessary risks to prove he's every bit as good as them.

Alpha Bravo is all about precision and manoeuvrability - tailor made for getting into tight spots.

I was lucky enough to recruit Alpha Bravo to my team and snapped a pic of his in-game profile page. He shares the same ability as the other gunners but stands unique as a flier.

So nobody's going to talk about how Tantrum is clearly MMC's Fortis? Okay then.

I also recruited Rampage, who seems to follow the Grimlock model of his alt mode being his default. Interesting.

Good to see AB getting representation, wonder if he has a 'con counterpart. Offroad, are you on the horizon?

It seems alt mode is the default for all the beastformers.

Keep an eye out, you may see some more new bots here or there.

I've now recruited three of the five Predacons (Headstrong is my third) and only Rampage defaults to beast mode, so I'm going to call that a "no".

Looking at all the available bots now, there are 27 Decepticons to choose from: Megatron, Bludgeon, Soundwave, Skrapnel, Kickback, (where is Bombshell?) Soundwave, Shockwave, the Seeker quartet (counting Slipstream), Breakdown, and all the Constructicons, Predacons, and Combaticons. i hope these complete combiner teams mean combiners are in the next update, or at least we get some impetus to use team members together.

I'm hoping for combiners as well. Completing the latest campaign suggested just that when the Enigma of Combination was found.

*rampant speculation warning*

Here's what I would like to see happen with combiners. If you deploy an entire team, you can spend all your ability to combine but you loose control of the combiner until the battle is over.

pfffffft. Aside from abilities, you have no control anyway, so no big difference. >:oP

Hasn't been announced yet, but the media push has been getting more intense lately.

My un-educated and un-official guess would be "soon-ish" :lol:

I totally feel this one.

Why don't they mention that in the newspost?
Why tease the hell out of it for months?

I already forgotten about the previous mobile Transformers game that was teased the hell out of.
Did that actually get released? Is anyone playing it?

Well 2015 gave us Transformers Battle Tactics, which was released in February or March and officially shut down earlier this month. Is that what you're thinking of? The only other game I can think of is Transformers Universe, which was a LOL-esque browser game that was cancelled in beta.

Earth Wars's dev team seems pretty committed to the "Spring" release date, which gives them roughly one more month to release as the official first day of Summer is June 20.
