Transformers Universe is an upcoming browser-based massively multiplayer online game currently under development by British online computer game developer Jagex Games Studio and American toy company Hasbro.[1][2] Very little is known about the game beyond that it would be released in North America, Latin America, Europe, New Zealand and Australia in 2014.[3] The game was first revealed to the public at BotCon 2011[1]as an MMORPG, but has since changed to a massively online tactical action game.[4] The gameplay will be very team-based, with players choosing to be an Autobot or a Decepticon.[5] The game is set in the Transformers: Prime timeline.[6] Transformers Universe is currently being developed with an advanced version of the Unity engine.[7] In early February 2014, Jagex CEO & CTO Mark Gerhard made a statement on the official Transformers Universe forum where he revealed that Jagex are "100% set to launch Transformers Universe this Summer." [8]

Decepticons[edit]

Challenges[edit]

  • After a recent publication from PC Gamer, Nick Cooper (producer) demo'd a challenge where the player has to mine Energon, the game's main resource, and deposit it in a special hopper before the other team can. Chief Creative Officer Alex Horton showed how to do this by dropping probes into the valley floor. This article seems to be the first reference of a challenge or activity in the new Transformers Game.[10]
