Transformers Universe MMORPG Teaser Movie, Looks Mighty Epic

By Peter Van on Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Updated: Game Informer has posted new images from Jagex showing off characters and game stills. Check them out in the gallery.

Jagex has released a new teaser movie of their upcoming massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) Transformers Universe which shows off some mightily epic footage.

The video, while calm with classic music in the background, shows off the blue Decepticon fighter that we saw at BotCon as a cardboard cut-out transforming from his vehicle to robot mode.

Throughout the video, we see a setting where "it's time to choose sides to team up to wage war online."

The browser-based game is set for a 2012 release.

Flash is a vector graphics engine. While it is possible to use it for 3D, the scale we are talking about here (presuming these graphics are legit) would limit the TF MMO to only high end systems as Flash is a CPU whore. Looking at their other games, I'm going to bet it will be built similarly... read more

I like it. If they make it somewhat decent, with a proper character creator, good content, and endgame play, I'm in.

not sure how long this game will be around after its released. I feel like i'm constantly hearing about other MMO's that are having their servers shut down for lack of interest. I'll give it a show on day one as long as its playable on Mac

Um, yeah. That's a TF: YAWN... er, I mean TF: PRIME-esque transformer standing in the dark with a bunch of paired red and blue light sources intended to give the impression of eyes. That doesn't necessarily mean anything good or bad about the game itself, but that's essentially because ... read more

I always thought flash was a kind of engine but judging from that last post I'm wrong. Anyone care to enlighten me?

It might not be flashed based. Remember you can play Quake 3 from a browser as well.

Meh. In-game isn't going to look that good. I don't think thats flash based. Typically MMORPGs would require more then a flash-based game could provide. If this is a quality title you'll need at least a semi-high end PC to run it.

It's a neat trailer, wonder how the game will play and such. I know it's probably flash based, but wonder if somehow it would be iPad compatible, an app or something, cuz man I could see playing this stretched out on the couch listening to Beast Wars and wondering how much more corky I can b... read more

Transformers Combaticon Awareness Week
More Universe News
To close out Combaticon Awareness week, we look at Onslaught! While there are a couple toys we'll be discussing, the one we're mainly talking about is one that, while not a combiner, deserves not to be forgotten in the way or newer, more Bruticus-ready Onslaughts. Keep reading to learn of the Onslaught in the forgotten size class!
Joe Moscone, formerly the PR agent that handled Hasbro's entertainment brands such as Transformers, GI Joe, etc., is auctioning off his collection of figure for charity. For the benefit of Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, Moscone is auctioning off a fairly impressive collection heavy on convention and SDCC exclusives. Most notably for Transformers fans, he's auctioning off the reasonably rare OTFCC Sentinel Maximus figure. Keep reading for more info!
During the long development cycle of Jagex's Transformers universe, a great deal of secondary media was created to support it. One company contracted to do some of that work, Mi, has come forward to reveal their hand in that process, samples of motion comic "episodes" that would have been used to advertise and promote the then-upcoming game. But as the winds shifted on the project, this facet was ultimately shelves. Click through for excerpts of the firm's recollections and a link to the article with the videos.
TFormers forum member TheTfboy wrote a special article for Radio Free Cybertron's Transformersdom blog about his first hand experiences with Jagex's long-developed, short-lived Transformers game. Presented in the format of a timeline of events, TheTfboy explains happenings players observed that may not have been apparent to the rest of us, and shows how long the writing was on the wall for the game's ultimate demise only months after it reached the open beta stage. Keep reading for an excerpt, and then check out the original article!
Jagex's Transformers Universe game has run the course of its short life, but the project had a lot of art designed for it, and the artists that contributed have been posting their work for all to see. We have a range of pieces from Oliver Miles and Sam Beattie including elements that never had a chance to be used in the game. Adam Turnbull has also posted a few video clips to his Vimeo account including function demos and cinematic elements, which we've got embedded below. Click through to check out everything!
