Roll Out! First Transformers Universe Footage Appears

Are we tired of Transformers yet? No, just the Michael Bay movies? Good.

You may remember that Jagex promised a Transformers MMO early last year. At the time we had not been subjected to the torture that is Transformers: Dark of the Moon and so we eagerly awaited the MMO. Fast forward almost two years and oh how the world has changed. For the most part it felt like the universe had had its fill of Transformers and all seemed to be quiet. But just like an explosion from a Michael Bay film, Jagex abruptly released some actual in-game footage of their Transformer MMO and suddenly people began to care once more.

The trailer above features gratuitous amounts of robots in badass stances, robots holding various weapons, robots turning into cars, and of course robots fighting robots. For a browser game, the graphics are actually quite good. Other than what we have seen in the trailer we still know essentially nothing about the MMO or how it plays. With a projected release date of 2012 though I suspect we will find out soon.

Beta registration is now open but no word as to when the beta tests will actually begin. My hunch is some time late October or early November. Will you be giving the Transformer MMO a spin? Which side will you be choosing?

Editor’s Note: I just realized the trailer shows 2013 as the launch year and not the original predicted 2012. I suspect the beta will still begin late this year though.

  1. Looks damn hot

  2. In the trailer it has a release date of 2013, not 2012?

    1. Yeah I just realized that. I think they must have pushed it back.

  3. jagex has ruined aos so i dont think transformers will be any good .

  4. How old do you have to be, I put in 13 and it said not eligible

  7. J…WHAT? JAGEX?
    MAKING A NEW MMO?
    UNHEARD OF!
    Is this their excuse for scrapping Mechscape or something?

  8. Looks rlly shitty. Pure graphics and imho Hawken or MechWarrior Online are much better. They try to get our interest by brand name of the “Transformers”. Not interesting.

    1. Last I checked its Browser based and HAWKEN and MECH WARRIOR ONLINE are client based. Of course the game wont look as great as them. I will say for a Browser based game… I think it looks pretty bad ass.

      1. Agree, but who needs a browser based game like this? It still has bad graphics and pure gameplay -_-
        Have no idea why our gamers should change Hawken or Mech Warrior (for example) for this browser junk…

  9. Seriously? A browser game? Seriously?

  10. in 2011 they say 2012 and in 2012 they say 2013 what if they say 2014 lol. Pls do not I am waiting eagerly for this game

  11. Do We Really Need Any More Transformers?? -_-

  12. I dont like high tech fps but…. i will give this a try. :)

  13. You people need to in all respect shut up how are you gona say it looks shitty and u havent played it if u play it and say its shitty ok idc but u people are being jerks ugh and for the people that complimented or didnt insolt the unplayed game thx
