MOTA Madness: Transformers Universe no longer an MMO, debuts this summer
It seems as though Transformers Universe has transformed into something new entirely. What was once suppose to be a browser-based MMORPG developed by Jagex, has now reversed its door panels and shifted its hardtop to reveal a brand new face altogether. In a forum announcement by Mark Gerhard, Ceo and CTO of Jagex, Gerhard revealed the project had evolved over 2013 and was now set to launch in the summer not as an MMO, but as a massively online, tactical action game, or MOTA.
While many might argue Jagex's "MOTA" may as well be a "MOBA", Gerhard says players will play as commanders, each commanding a squad of their own faction-specific AI bots into battle. These bots aren't also simply nameless drones with a death-wish like in other arena style games. The squad of bots all have access to their own customization options and specialties. In the end, Transformers Universe is said to offer fast-paced, battle eccentric, tactical action with several game modes to choose from.
There's little more information regarding the recent changes to Transformers Universe and how it actually plays, however Gerhard states this is soon to change. As Jagex prepares for its summer release, the studio will begin ramping up both their communication efforts and beta invites. Players have been able to signup for the beta since last year, but those who have not can still do so here.
