So unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few weeks you will probably have heard or read somewhere about the E3 Gaming Convention that was held in Los Angeles. It was huge and showcased lots of new content that we can expect in terms of video game hardware and software. E3 itself lasted from 7th till the 9th of June and yet there is still information and footage being released onto the Internet that we were not shown during those three days.
Of that footage is a game called Transformers Universe. Simply put, it is a Massively Multiplayer Online Game that allows you to create your own transforming robot. So far not much is known about the game itself other than it is being developed by Jagex who were behind the hit browser based MMO, RuneScape that is still going strong today. This also leads to the speculation that it may follow a similar pricing plan to RuneScape whereby you only pay for additional content and not the ability to play it.
Transformers Universe has been confirmed to be browser based and will not play out in the same way as RuneScape has which is a good thing since RuneScape’s game play style would not bare well with a fast paced transforming robots.
So far all we have is the above information and a short teaser trailer that can be seen below. Which does confirm that robots will actually be in the game itself and that you will have to pick a side in the fight for Cybertron between either an Autobot or a Decepticon.
Personally I can’t wait for this game to be released, I just hope that it is done well like Transformers: War for Cybertron was and hopefully includes some bigger elements of the Transformers universe that weren’t put into the game or into the Michael Bay films such as Unicron for example. I even hope they bring in the likes of Omega Supreme with his Arnie-like accent. No release date has been given for the game, but I shall be sure to keep you posted.
