Before I forget, I think I missed out on Transformers Online. Licensed only to Asia regions, with Jagex developing Transformers Universe (browser MMO), Transformers Online is a MMOTPS, or online third person shooter. If you have missed out my previous posts on the game, do click on the (link) here.
Developed by China’s NetDragon, also the company behind Dungeon Keeper Online, a new third faction was revealed besides the Autobots and Decepticons. It is now officially known as Pirates, a group of renegades loyal to neither side led by their leader, Thundertron. Thundertron blames all inhabitants of Cybertron for his planet’s demise, hence he destroys all no matter if they are Autobots or Decepticons. The storyline is actually much longer, but I am lazy.
There are currently 6 selling points of the game listed, which includes the TPS mode supporting a clear 260 degrees view for players, various PvP modes, exciting new concept PvE modes, up to 5 different types of builds available and over 100 kinds of vehicles to transform into. The first Closed Beta starts in August, but I am sure I won’t be able to get in given the stringent rules imposed on getting suck keys nowadays in China.
