In some brand new sneak peak videos, Jagex shows us what they have been up to with Transformers Universe, showing off new gameplay footage of their recently developed transforming warfare.

While the game was originally conceived as an MMO, Jagex decided to propose a brand new genre for Transformers, relabeling it as a MOTA. This tactical action theme has players controlling commanders who head their own squads of bots, launching full scale transforming chaos across the battle field.

Amongst the new introductions is the Boraya Beam Gun wielding Autobot known as Meltdown. As an Autobot guardian, he is designed for maximum damage absorption, while also possessing the proper tools to heal friendly robots.

The other sneak peak shows off the tainted and ruthless Duststorm. With her Stygian Sniper Rifle, she makes the perfect assassin, doing maximum damage both close up and from great distances. Duststorm has a knack for stunning enemies and making quick getaways.

Transformers Universe is set to come out sometime this summer.

    The game looks dull. The graphics look very bad, looks like it was made in a rush… And gameplay looks very sluggish and buggy and non competitive… Just a waster of time.

    My opinion is this game won’t be a hit. In fact I think it will be a big disappointment…

      Have you played the game when its not even out yet? Was there even a beta? I think your opinion is rushed and full of nonsense. I’m not really defending a game that’s not even completed yet, I’m just pissed that your not making any sense. Why not wait till the actual release of the game before making nonsense crap.

      P.S. I hate myself for looking down in the comments section in this website because of crappy judgmental comments here, even though I promised myself not to see any bullsh*t sigh

    3 ft vehicles transform into 25 ft vehicles and some that scale nearly the size of buildings. the logic here, i cant quite cope it all…

      If you need logic, you can imagine that transformers in their humanoid form are much less “solid” than humans. In other words they have lots of empty spaces inside. For some reason. >_>

    I first signed up and was accepted for beta like a yr ago now. then there in their forums the change from a mmorpg to a moba or mota was announced. its been a huge disappointment since. you will be hard pressed to find people accepting of this change that were involved with it from the start. the plans they had were pretty epic. and now we have this. bleh
