    Transformers Universe [Beta]

    I just got a mail that told me to sing up for the BETA, singed up, and got a letter telling me that I got access to the beta once it is released.

    http://www.transformersuniverse.com/signup
    The flash did not work for me, so I clicked "HTML Version".


    Anyways, anybody has any info on the game?

    First thing I thought of when I saw the video was that I don't really like the graphics.

    It is being called a 'Tactical Action Combat Game', It looks like a lot of pvp. There are definately classes, so far they show medics and melee classes, some melee classes seem to be heavier (armor and two hand weapons) than others, and the others are more agile two hand weapon classes. The healers heal by shooting healing beams and rockets at friendly targets.

    It also looks like you choose a named robot and play it, rather than designing your own robot by chosing a chasis and color scheme and then your class of choice. There seem to be 10 models on either side.

    I went home to sign up for beta because you have to run a program that sends them info on your computers specs but once I got it running it failed because the website was down, got back to work and it was up .

    Seemed more like PVP than PVE.

    The questionaire you fill out does require you to click on boxes for what you play on, from handhelds, tablets to PC's and consoles. My guess is it will be for consoles and PC.

    the homepage is www.transformersuniverse.com, lots of videos there. The rap song in the background of the trailer is kinda bad, but they are english so I forgive them.

    Glad I'm not a fan of transformers, or I'd be pretty crushed right about now.

    Jagex proves time and time again, the only thing they can make is Runescape. FunOrb was terrible, Ace of Spades was a terrible attempt at a Minecraft clone PvP game, MechScape didnt even enter Alpha, now this. They planned on making a game called Stellar Dawn, which probably will or already has been canned.

    They're currently developing a HearthStone clone as well based off the Runescape universe, how do you suppose that will go?

    Wait...Jagex was developing this?

    I didn't think Jagex did anything other than Runescape.....still at least they would rather cancel the game than to release a horrible product.
    There is a thin line between not knowing and not caring, and I like to think that I walk that line every day.

    Jagex develops a lot actually. I also did not know Jagex was making this game. Sadly for them a lot of their work goes under the radar. Not that it matters, like you said they produce horrible products.

    Though I still have found memorys of old runescape. Getting 99 HP as my only 99 stat and having the HP cape without the trim. Was a rare accomplishment not a lot of people did such a thing. Also farming, I don't know why but farming (growing crops) was amazing and no other game I have played comes close to how great it was.
