Transformers: Online MMO Game Close Beta Started, Teaser Trailer

Transformers-Online
We’ve been hearing a lot about Transformers: Universe; the upcoming browser based MMO game by Jagex. But what about Transformers: Online; the video game by NetDragon for the Asian region?

TFW2005 Boards Member MechanovaKing is the right man for the job. He brought some cool stuff to share with all of us.

According to the MMO Game News Website, MMOCulture.com Transformers: Online limited close beta (or Elite Close Beta as the Chinese gaming industry would call it) has been started.

And at the China Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference a.k.a ChinaJoy2011 a Teaser Trailer made its debut.


The game is a Third Person Shooter very much like Transformers: War For Cybertron (sequel is also coming next year).

so we cant play this here in the states regardless of it only being released oversea?

Universe is for the states, online is for Other countries.
Buster_Witwicky
Looks generic.
Ranger Silver 6
It is just the asian version of Universe as far as I can tell. There have been transformation videos on youtube for a while now.
AngryChad
Meh. WfC2 please.

Wait. Surely the UK will get Universe as well as the States, considering how it is being made by a British developer

It's a webbrowser game. Of course you'll be able to play it.

I remember seeing those TF Online videos years ago and the only reason I was interested was because it was a Transformers MMO. I even tried out Age of Armor because it has customizable Transforming mechs, but that game was very mediocre.

TF Online never struck me as a Transformers game simply because of the style, it looks like a generic anime game.

TF Online has become the world's most anticipated 3D sci-fi MMORPG this year. The powerful 3D engine it uses vividly presents the gamers with the disaster-stricken earth and the beautiful outer space in year 2174. Standing in the space station, you will be able to see the gigantic Jupiter slowly rising. What's more fascinating is that you can set your feet on alien battlefields by driving a several-story-high robot, and engage in fierce battles on the rapidly rotating asteroids. But do watch out for the falling meteorites if you are on the moon, otherwise you'll probably be smashed into a crater.
And this... this sounds like a horrible setting. But if you can go to other planets that would be pretty cool.

Is this really the official game, or something with the same name?

No. The one in the first post is the official game. That's just a Chinese knock off.

They all transform into robot mode while flipping over but not the other way around... weird.

If this game is somewhere between $0.00 and $8.00 I might consider it.

You know, I'm having a HARD time believing that the game we saw for US release (TF Universe) will in fact be browser based. It's graphics looked too advanced for a browser game. Something tells me that TF:O and TF:U will have a lot more in common than we'd think. As in, they may actually be the same game, but be like most games where the Chinese version has a completely different name and developer than the US release, but they all have essentially the same content...

By Primus I hope your right!

protostar8 that's your new task....make it happen.
Overlord Balder
If TF:Universe is as cool as TF:Online seems to be, I'll be happy.

Transformers Online (CN) - Limited Closed Beta starts ~ MMO ☆ Culture
It looks like a PRIME game to me. Why not just call it that?
StarryAqua
So Transformers Online and Transformers Universe are both supposed to take place in the Prime universe, but they're not supposed to be related to each other.

That . . . makes sense.
Tiller
Looks like this one has horrible and rough mechanics going by the videos. Typical Asian MMO only with Transformers. The only thing fluid seemed to be the transformation.
snoopcow
i think its the same game and netdragon is the chinese translator for the asian market.

Overall this kinda looked... bland, with only that one scene of the transformation that really looked interesting. Kinda looked like a lot of other korean & chinese MMOs, just with movie-transformer characters.
biojosh398
That looks awesome! Are the people in the UK or USA gonna get this game?
SPLIT LIP
This looks better than I imagined.
shroobmaster
That doesn't look half bad! But I ain't moving to Korea just to play a game.
OP84
I hope this version is the same as Universe because the graphics look very fluid and have a very "animated" appearance to them which fits the Prime universe, if it took place in the
Movie Universe the graphics would have to look more realistic like the console games but since it doesn't I'm happy, or will be if this game is the same as Universe.
Bovril
Nice fanwank animations, everything else looks god-awful. It even makes WFC look passable.
Protoman
Dat f-1 car!!! Oh man!
jazz_123
i heard arcces transformation of wfc at the end
Xformermike
Oh...

When I saw the video on the Hasbro website I assumed this would be an RPG MMO...That's sort of the way the video played it out. (One like and WoW or FF11. That would have been awesome.)

But another shooter? I dunno... All shooters pretty much feel the same to me. Is another one really that exciting? Bleh. Already have WFC. I'm happy with that. Something else (like an MMORPG) would be cool.

(please excuse my disappointment.)

And WfC2 will have worse transforming mechanics.
amethysted
Dont mean to be a nerd, but I would like a story mode...

You know, stories. Written by writers...

I'm a big fan of quests. And an actual storyline... Ha!


Quick demo looks fine. As long as its like War for Cybertron, we'll all be good...

Ether MMO is going to most likly have a WoW style plot
"Kill 5 cyber pigs"
5 part chain quest to kill some leader. then ends.
"WHOA MAN this is the raid boss megatron! you should be really pumped for this!"

I would like some good story. Or at the very least one main story from lvls 1 to 80.

Problem for me is, from the looks of the so-called "battle reflection" gameplay scene in the video, it looks pretty crappy.

China is even knocking off Transformers games now.

It's not a knockoff though, it's a licensed product. THe developer, Netragon, is pretty well known for making numerous chinese MMOs licensed from western properties.

Welcome to Hasbro 2011

If the game is Free to Play, It could be fun.
Acclaimed
I really wanted to like WFC, but the game was really flat. Not awful, not a classic.
Darkwing48
In before TFW2005 member dies while playing Transformers MMOG excessively.
Fonecrusher
For a browser based game that look's pretty darn good.
TFwheeljack223
