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.

I got in the Beta Saturday, it was pretty fun, Hopefully when the full game comes out it'll have more performance options.

I think flying characters would be a great addition to the game.

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.
