BotCon 2011 - First Looks at Transformers Universe MMO Game from Jagex Video Preview

Just in from BotCon 2011 are the first looks at Transformers Universe MMO Game from Jagex.

Check out this overview with Jagex with Kris Jones executive producer who gives us an overview of the robot builder and answers some of our questions about the game.

Interview Highlights:

  • There will brand-new characters, including Prowl and Barricade. A lot of obscure characters will also be featured. Unfortunately, a gamer cannot be Optimus Prime. As Mr. Jones puts it, "because how will we do that with 100,000 people running around?"
  • A gamer starts out by creating his own character [similar to the recently released DC Universe Online it seems -ed] by choosing whether to be an Autobot or Decepticon. Mr. Jones showcased the ability to choose different arms, legs, and colors for each part of a character.
  • There will be hundreds of different types of pieces at a gamer's disposal to create something unique. A lot of different types of vehicles will be available to choose from and customize, but Mr. Jones was reluctant to give us more details on the vehicles right now.
  • We asked about the possibility of combiners and while Mr. Jones was coy on details, he did emphasize that the game will be very team-oriented, so gamers will be able to play with all of his/her friends in the browser-based game.
  • Further down the road, gamers will be available to create their own parts and decals to upload and share with other users.
  • The game will be set in the Transformers continuity, "but we have spent a lot with Hasbro to make sure that we can give something to the hardcore fans" and to cater to the casual fan as well.

  • Check out the full interview below!
