    The Transformers MMO is confirmed to be based on PRIME

    From a conference last year, the Chinese company Net Dragon announced that they're developing Transformers Online, a Massively Multiplayer Online game licensed by Hasbro.

    Now they officially confirm the designs will be based on the ongoing PRIME series, and show two poses of Optimus' model:

    The original article on game.icafe8.net

    However, according to the article, there will be a totally different story line, featuring "the 3rd faction".

    Actually, on their weibo.com page, they'v been using this Optimus and a new Megatron model as their background (Bee and Starscream are straightly from Hub's concept art though).

    Also, in previous promotion, they show lower models of Optimus and Megatron, could be their in game models?

    I'm rather curious as to exactly how a Transformers MMO is going to play out, especially on such a currently limited universe as Prime is.

    Well it's certainly a good way to feature more characters. I suppose the third evil faction would be MECH?

    I agree Starscream NZ however...look at what (PRIME) did with Breakdown and Wheeljack. Whose to say they won't just take every character they can and use it for whatever purpose they see fit?

    I'm not. MMO Game backstories are ALWAYS random crap pulled outta nowhere, just ignore the story and focus on shooting some "third faction that nobody will buy toys of" ass.

    I'm fine with that.

    Considering the three movies are over. And possibly that whole continuity...

    TF: Prime is cool w me! That Megatron is awesome! Frank and Peter FTW!

    Nice mixture of Movieverse and Animated styling...

    New story?

    I'm ready for any new Transformers!

    I think the game can work fine if set on the three years where Megatron left left Earth to search for Dark Energon.

    Autobots must search to destroy it, 'Cons must search for their almighty master Megatron.

    The whole game would basically be re-wakening of the Great War, making 'Bots stranted in all parts of the galaxy start a new war against the 'Cons.

    Something like Pirates of the Caribbean MMO [that is set between the first and the second movie, showing how the East India Trading Company acquired so much power in the second movie].

    it will be simple to make a TF MMORG.

    Give fans a few various customizable options to start their characters off. obviously not allowing them to use existing characters as a base. then as you progress you can customize your look further with armors, weapon add-ons etc. really it won't be that difficult.

    the good and evil classes should only effect the quests on a minor level honestly.

    personally I think they should have us all play as humans not transformers. it would make the game dynamic a lot more interesting being caught in the middle of an interstellar war an all.

    I say the big feature of this game should be customization, I mean, this is Transformers! The franchise known for its loads and loads of characters all with their differences.

    I also say: Allow players to customize the voice of the characters.

    It's not that hard to program that and it would make the game very different.

    The Fanhate would go through the roof with that.
    Besides, in PRIME reality, 'Bots are hidden from Mankind, only Fowler knows of them.

    And we can't have a MMO with Fowler only to play, can we?

    Maybe a Hack'N'Slash/Thirt person shooter talking about how Fowler destroyed the Nazi on WWII, but not an MMO!
