After loads of teasing, with glimpses of gameplay coming through the few teaser trailers we’ve seen over the past few months, Jagex is finally lifting the veil and letting us behold the true face of Transformers Universe. Many worried what sort of gameplay a browser based MMO turned MOTA would bring forth to the light. The verdict? For a browser game it actually doesn’t look half bad.

Gameplay in the trailer appears surprisingly fast paced with shots of combat looking decidedly non tab-target, and the maps appear relatively open ended. In Transformers Universe players will be forced to choose to side with either the Decepticons or Autobots before creating their very own custom built squad of Cybertronian warriors to aid them in battle.

While each match is individual, Jagex says the resulting victory or defeat will play a part in a faction struggle between the two. Players can signup for the ongoing beta on the official site here.

    Should be a PVE game IMO, because i can see hackers ruining this game

    Well lets see as time passes the gamers waiting ability is finishing and unfortunately now the game has to be to good if it has to survive. It was expected coming soon in 2012 and now its still just 1 minute gameplay,
