Barricade_Cutout
Jagex, the creators of the upcoming Transformers Universe MMO sent us an update today. They wanted to recap and share the information and images about the project revealed at Botcon 2011.

Check out their details below. There are also some awesome images of Prowl, Barricade, the Decepticon Fighter and a couple background shots as well, which you can see by reading the full story.
For those who missed the news, here what was announced about the game at BotCon:
  • Hasbro and Jagex have joined forces to develop and publish a TRANSFORMERS MMO.
  • The title of the MMO will be TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE.
  • TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE will be an action orientated MMO.
  • In TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE players will be able to create and play as their own AUTOBOT or DECEPTICON, designing and customising the character to fit their game play style, combat preferences and appearance.
  • After looking at the mechanics, the iconic TRANSFORMERS IP, and the TRANSFORMERS heritage Jagex distilled this into core themes which are present throughout the TRANSFORMERS universe: conflict, teamwork, and social regard (the AUTOBOTS caring for the humans)
  • TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE sits within the “Prime” timeline, along with the book Exodus, the War for Cybertron games and the Prime cartoon.
  • The game will be released in 2012.

Hope they can also make it on the show.

Hey sweet, Barricade is not as lanky as he looked on that cut out. He's not as stocky as he should be, but a lot better then what I thought at first.
mirage247

It's a video game based on the show.
Soundwave2
I don't care what it is as long as that Prowl figure comes out
Toxicon
I want the man that designed Barricade and Prowl to marry my daughter.
artiepants
that Prowl is fan-damn-tastic. Easily the best TFP-design-asthetic-look Character IMHO.
Transformed
I wish movie Barricade looked like this.
Knockout2916
Barricade looks completely awesome, I can't wait to see him in action!!!
artiepants
I'm a little non-plussed by Barricade, he looks to much like a re-skinned Prime Megatron to me... too randomly spikey.
Shizuka
A hint of what's to come in Prime I hope.
Guneagle01
really? the guys who made RUNESCAPE? ffs
RisingPhoenix86
What platforms will this be released on? Or is it strictly PC like WOW and others.
Awesomus Prime
Please, God, let Prowl's design in this game be carried over to the TFP Animated Series. BEST... PROWL DESIGN... EVAH!!!

Make the toys NOW!

I just want Barricade to show up in the show, voiced by Keith David no less.
shroobmaster
No idea why all the Prowl love, he got a really goofy face and generic transformation, but THAT BIG BLUE DUDE is pure badass, it gets me stocked to know that you can look that good in game.
Paxtin
I actually tried recoloring the big "Decepticon Fighter" guy to see if it'd make him look less "Breakdown'ish".

shroobmaster
That.

Is.

BADASS!
Sideswipe94
Idk if this has been posted already guys but check this out. Nothing special though
G1_Astrotrain
That would be awesome if they made toys of these guys
simified
Hopefully they'll add Wheeljack this time around.
MicromanSpyBoy
These are gonna be great!

...for kitbashing!
Transformed
I just realized that this game has a teaser attached to it. The concept art looks out of this world, but sadly the teaser was nothing but weak No one does a teaser better than HMS.
Ravenxl7
Definitely seems like it's going to be a very interesting game. Not sure if I'll get it, but I'll wait to see how the gameplay looks. Though if I do get it, I might have to get a new computer, lol (the one I've got now can barely play Lego HP as it is).
RW8U
I just wish it wasn't called Universe.
Necro Prime
This game is going to inhale my life.
SnakeEyesFan97
Toys of them PLEASE HASBRO!
Ribieconvoy
Could be really awesome. Could suck. 99% sure I won't be able to play it though since my comps prolly couldnt even have played WFC.

The game's internet-browser based. I don't think it would be THAT hard for any computer to play.
Opticron Primal
The video of the character model animations looked pretty damn good for a game like this, to be honest. So I'm cautiously optimistic.

Also, I hope to god we see that Barricade design turned into a toy. I'd love to use it as a classics Barricade.

Alot of people do. High Moon Studio is small talk.

I'd be willing to bet that was actually a prerendered animation. I wouldn't be surprised if the actual game graphics are a tad lower rez.
Radioactive Ravage
I want me some Barricade in toy form.

But more importantly, I want to make my own Transformer.
Omegatron
I'd like to see toys of that Prowl and Barricade, but I'm also looking forward to the game.

I'll be quitting WoW of this is good enough.

I think you need to lower your expectations. This mmo will be run in your web browser. It will not be anywhere near as impressive as WoW in the graphics or the gameplay. I'm not saying it won't be awesome and fun, because no one has any idea yet, but it's probably for the best if you imagine it being more like Runescape than WoW. Better to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed right?
Latias Prime
Holy shit, you get to make your own character? Like choose a gender, customize apperance and ablilities and pick any alt-mode?



Suddenly I am not so interested in Pokemon Black anymore.

In all seriousness, this is awesome news. I have always wondered what a Transformers MMO would be like, and now it looks like my dream is coming true. I can't wait to see if I can make some of my fan-characters in the game. The only thing is we have to wait until 2012, so we only get a year or so of play before the end of the world (then again, the Mayans could have been wrong).

Oh, and I guess the Prowl and Barricade models are cool too.

Yeah, it's Jagex, and it's the only Transformers MMO, they want kids to play this without having to buy expensive expansions.
electronic456
A high chance that both these characters will appear in the Transformers Prime show.

You'll be surprised what can be done in-browser these days:
