Jagex have posted an update on transformersuniverse.com
bringing us up to speed on the latest happenings in the exciting Transformers MOTA game world!
The update kicks off with a rundown on tweaks to the game's matchmaking and making the game more welcoming to new players - including the introduction of a VR training room for you to hone your skills with your chosen characters.
Closing off the update we have a rundown of new features in store throughout September and into October. These include:
A challenge system - introduced on Wednesday! This system lets you lay down challenges to other players - but this is just the first iteration of the system with lots of plans to add more depth and rewards as time progresses.
17 September will see a new map added to the Elimination game mode, Drummond Gorge, which is said to offer a different set of tactics and challenges. At the same time, the outer base maps are due for a visual upgrade.
This will be followed on 24 September with the Santa Vega TDM being upgraded to address some of the known issues with the battle map, and to make the central part of the map more friendly to vehicles.
1 October will introduce an all-new game mode - Recon! Recon is a capture the flag mechanic where you cannot transform while you have the flag. It is initially rolling out on a dedicated map for that mode, with others to be added over time.
And of course, there are new characters coming! The previously revealed Outsider
are coming in September. They will be followed in October by two characters whose names you may know, Flamewar
! Flamewar and Chromia will be the first 'bots based on Transformers lore to be added as playable characters - but not the last if that Knock Out tease was anything to go by... Check out the full update and learn more about the game at transformersuniverse.com
