Transformers Universe Founders Pack FAQ Reveals $449 Figurine Offer and More Details

Following the Transformers Universe Founders Initiative that just launched now launched. Jagex has posted a FAQ with details on wants fans get when paying for the different packs they are offering. The big surprise is the $449.99 for the Cybernite pack includes a 1--inch figurine (statue)! This is all very well and good, but it seems to be a bit strange that the game that has been promoted at "Free to Play" for years now has a twist that is going to cost more than meets the wallet. Read on for more details for the FAQ.

Click here to register for beta access. We are inviting the general public in waves for the closed BETA. This involves selecting a number of people with particular game specs. Initially we will be looking to invite a select number of people, an important part of testing stability and gameplay.
