Jagex has fully revealed the two newest additions to the Transformers Universe MMO game. Up first is Outsider who is an Autobot and has a very retro alt mode and then we got the infectiously named Pandemic on the Decepticon side.

The first warrior on the scene is Autobot Outsider. Beaming in and out of battle in the blink of an eye, Outsider utilizes unique teleport abilities to dodge bullets with his tactical ingenuity. Don’t let his 60’s style fool you, this Autobot isn’t as peaceful as he looks.

The second warrior to slither in is Decepticon Pandemic. This warrior has a fighting style that is infectious! Taking pleasure in poisoning anyone not blessed with his own sharp style, this snake like Decepticon sinks his fangs into his enemies.

There really need to be more wide release van Transformers. I used Towline to make Reflector once (news van = spy), and I really wish he'd been more substantial.

Need a little more help decided who you want to side with in Transformers: Universe? Jagex has released two videos with Optimus Prime in an Autobot Introduction video explaining the urgency in stopping the Decepticons and Megatron in a Decepticon Introduction video laying out his plans for the Autobot's destruction. You can join the war at Transformers: Universe.

Pretty neat. These videos really, really make Transformers Universe seem like a prelude to TF: Prime (even though that's not entirely the case, I believe).

I like how much they've taken from Prime. The voices here are spot on, and the designs are looking pretty cool.

No we don't. That game never showed us what happened after they went through the space bridge portal.

Not when there's plenty of official media that points to the contrary.

Official canon states that they did not go straight to Earth when they went into that portal. Their first stop after exiting the portal was Velocitron. Then Junkion. Then Solus Prime's tomb. Then back to Junkion. Then Aquatron. Then who knows where else they went before reaching Earth.

Even the following official FOC timelines state they went on a journey, and that they "eventually", not "immediately", reach Earth:

I fail to see how since everything pertaining to their arrival on Earth has thus far been ambiguous and uninformative.

Something a little different from Transformers: Universe, the MOBA game by Jagex - an interview with the ears behind the music! Check out below some extracts from this interview with James Hannigan, who also scored the videogames for Lord Of The Rings, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Command And Conquer among others, on Examiner.com.

Let’s first talk about your recent work on the new “Transformers Universe” game. What inspired you to get involved with the project? What has impressed you most about working on this game?

JH: I enjoyed Transformers as a child and I’m just one of those people who finds it difficult not to get excited by large, warring robots. I particularly like how they’re partially organic as well and have such distinctive personalities. Basically, I’m a sucker for the mythic theme of ‘good vs. evil’; not to mention being a sci-fi and fantasy buff in general.

[...]

Did you also take some inspiration from the music that composers such as Steve Jablonsky and Brian Tyler wrote for the films and animated television series that would help make your score fit in the Transformers Universe musically?

JH: Not specifically, although I love the work of those composers. I was merely trying to, on one level, create music that fit into the wider world of Transformers (which is already very varied across film and television over decades now) but with a new dimension as well. Some of the music of Transformers Universe is pretty harsh, grinding and mechanical, yet at other times it can be quite minimal and ethereal. The team at Jagex have also been working on music, and their output is also varied, a reflection perhaps of the fact that the Transformers themselves have wildly different personalities.

[...]

What were the recording sessions like?

JH: Very nice and we recorded the Philharmonia at Abbey Road Studios in London for some of the music. It is always a humbling and breathtaking experience to have your music performed by a full orchestra and the level of musicianship among players in London is truly outstanding.

Will a soundtrack album be released?

JH: Very possibly, but I have no details.

Anyone else disappointed that there aren't more classic characters in this game?
