Indeed. A toy. Now.

I'm not seeing how it's sharing Transformers: Prime Ratchet's mold, though. It's a similar vehicle and head, but he's far too bulky, he lacks doors on his chest, his arms are rounded, he's shaped like a V, and there are wheels in his shoulders and on his knees. These are all traits that Ratchet lacks.

Yeah, this is more of an original design and I'm not holding out for toys of any these game-original characters.

With any luck, he's based on an existing (or upcoming) mold, so I'm sure our customizers could have some fun with him.

If upcoming, from which toyline? TF: Prime is almost dead, soon to be replaced by AOE Generations.

Transformers Universe has released another short video clip featuring one of the original characters from the upcoming game. Meet Duststorm, a well armed Decepticon fembot who transformers into a dune buggy type vehicle. The video clip can be viewed by clicking here.

It appears I was not as swift as my previous entries! :P

I am actually looking forward to this. If what I'm picking up from them is true, then I wonder whether or not this is simply a template for a sort of scout class, like the scout class in Fall of Cybertron, hence the Sniper Rifle, seeming Carbine and perhaps even a Shotgun. I am really glad that there are fembots in this game, and I'm looking forward to the newest addition.

"Predacons Rising".

And, well, yeah, this is technically something that was made before that. Long before that, to be frank. The game just kept getting delayed and delayed so much that it's only now getting off the ground, almost three whole years after its original announcement. So, better late than never, I guess. :roll:

Though, at least it actually is coming out, since there was another game like this one that they were making for China, but was ultimately abandoned just a few short months after its launch date. :BANG_HEAD:

Does anyone know if this is strictly PvP like MechWarrior Online or will there be PvE content for those who enjoy the story aspect of games?

We have, thanks to the Transformers Universe Facebook page, some new information for you all to enjoy!

First comes the cover photo on their page:

Now, notice the insignia at the center, there? I do not recall that prior to this incident. If it has been revealed, what is it? And if not... What is it?

Secondly comes some non-iffy news on the regards to Meltdown and Duststorm teased the past couple of days. They have been officially revealed, with full bios! Oh, and totally epic trailers that show off actual gameplay and some of the musical soundtrack! The gameplay seems to be more of an MMO base, yet on the regards to how it's tactical, I would assume it's as tactical as Team Fortress 2 or perhaps the Fall of Cybertron multiplayer. Still requires tactics, but people don't have to use them to succeed sometimes. There seem to be rather large environments to travel in, and there seems to be quite the mass of players to accompany it! You can see the trailers below:

Duststorm:



As always, you can check out the full article HERE!

EDIT: It seems as though the individual bios for each of the characters provides in-depth looks at their capabilities, as well as an actual three dimensional model you can manipulate to take a closer gander at the character! The links for both of their bios are below:

Jagex has released full bios and extended clips for Duststorm and Meltdown from the upcoming Transformers Universe online game. We've mirrored the bios and embedded the clips below. More details and stats for each can be found at the following: Meltdown - Duststorm

Meltdown:



MELTDOWN

HEALTH INSURANCE

Meltdown is an Autobot who hates war but will never leave a fellow warrior behind.
He specializes in blasting his beam weapons - welding injured allies back together and deconstructing Decepticons (if absolutely necessary). He's also handy with a rocket launcher, although it's rumored he shuts his optics at the moment of impact. Emo-chanical issues aside, Meltdown is your bot for all reasons.

"IF AN AUTOBOT IS IN TROUBLE, MELTDOWN PUTS IT ALL ON THE LINE." - IRONHIDE



Duststorm:



DUSTSTORM
GHOST-FACED GUERRILLA
Corrupted from the inside out, Duststorm simmers with a quiet, consuming rage.
With an arsenal optimized to keep even the most ironclad predator at bay, this Decepticon will fry servos with her electrifying pistols or pop hoods from distance with deadeye precision. The tainted glint in her augmented ocular prosthesis is the only thing her victims ever see of this ghost-faced guerrilla.

"RUTHLESSLY EFFICIENT, DUSTSTORM IS A DECEPTICON WARRIOR CLOSE TO MY DARK SPARK." - MEGATRON

Looks more and more promessing now all we need is the game.

Huh, kinda reminds me of DCUO. But surprisingly less fun looking. I guess we'll have to choose a "base" body and customize the colors and with whatever weapons are made available.

Still, Meltdown doesn't look or sound too unique. I'm always happy to see another femme put into the series, Duststorm doesn't look to shabby. I think a different color scheme is in order though, she looks like a gender-swapped Swindle or Blitzwing with that purple-tan

Seen HERE, the Transformers Universe team is rehashing the Beta sign-up! Looks like they're trying to get as many people as possible, so we should probably sign up whilst we can!

Furthermore, it also seems as though they may have recently made graphical changes to the game and want to make sure it works well by signing up people with lower-quality machines, or at least, that's my take on it.
