Gamespot has posted some hands-on impressions with the Jagex Transformers MMO, Transformers Universe, which is nominally in the Transformers Prime continuity. The preview gives a taste of what we can expect from the game, although at this moment one key bit of information, namely when the beta version is going out, is still unknown. However as you can see from the new trailer the game is looking very sharp.

Check out the Gamespot preview here, and read on to check out the trailer.

Sounds fun.So i'm guessing the transformtion speed will go by what you are.Cars/planes transform fast,big tanks/housers go slow? I wonder how the pay to play system will work.Maybe we will get some DLC for other styles outside of prime(G1,beastwars styles).I'm liking what i hear so far.

Oh god. The framerate on that thing... Sure hope it's just incomplete, and that's not the way it turns out to be...

I didn't notice anything wrong with the frame rate.

Me too... It overall feels/looks as if they started this game in 06... I honestly hope the final product is better...
Omega Charge
Seriously can't wait for this.

Ugh. Team work, team work, team work. Can someone invent a multiplayer game without teamwork? I don't prefer the Decepticons because I'm a happy person who thinks rainbow are more than illusions and sunshine does more than help us see the bad more clearly.

Can't wait..

I'm willing to bet it's a poor encode/embed. Gamespot's and IGN's videos always look like crap.

What exactly are you expecting from an MMO if not teamwork? It's kind of a fundamental trait of an MMO.

Looking forward to it. The trailer showed some emphasis on melee, which I like. Also extremely happy to hear about the "Toy Box" mechanic. I want to have multiple characters with different alternate forms and once Beast Modes and flight hit I am going to pounce on that.

It's called Call of Duty from 4 onwards. And its just one giant uncoordinated bum rush consisting of rambos.


This looks alright for just a browser game. Unfortunately the gameplay looked slow, and weightless while the combat looked like a clusterfuck.

2013!!!!!
RoadRage

My god, was that a fucking EARTHMOVER!? Yay! We won't be limited to Cars, Bikes and SUVs/Trucks!

So, my characters will probably be:
A Survival expert who's a motorstorm-grade Off-Roader
My OC I hope to canonize
Tow Truck field medic
Armored Truck quartermaster
Three earthmovers who are a hard-hitting strike team

Well I really know nothing about MMOs but was hoping it would allow players to interact and fight with each other but not have to work together.

Ah yea, i don't think Jagex does any pvp. Could be wrong though. All mmos have the group element to them though.

Not only does this game look visually pleasing, IT LOOKS LIKE A WHOLE LOTTA FUN


I'm SO happy someone other than HMS is getting into the mix! I'm love what HMS has done with Transformers, but I want someone else to take a stab at it and knock it out of the park. Their successes would likely carry over to future titles, continuing growth and excitement on all frontss

I wish this game was released for consoles too--don't know why they don't do that. I'd buy a game that was nothing more than an online game, especially this one! I'd make it a day one purchase.

Sadly, I don't use my PC for gaming--not going to start with this one either.

It's weird seeing a CGI Transformer using their hands to hold a gun or what-not after 5 years of built in weapons being the norm. Still looks cool, though.

Handheld weapons FTW!

I wonder if we'll be able to utilize our alt modes to hide from or ambush other players. That'd be neat.
Mister Chef
That trailer was decent until the shitty TFP theme started playing.
Prime Jetscream
Glad we're actually getting this game at least.

It looks REALLY fun, hopefully it will have as much customization as FOC. I really like this idea of running around in an MMO, and your fate rests in the hands of coincidence since your enemies are always other players.

I'm really mad the plot depends on the faction that wins more, since everybody is being a Decepticon. >.>

That would be EPIC. But they'll probably give us altmodes that don't match any of the decoration cars at all.
