With the arrival of the latest Transformers movie The Last Knight in China last week, Tencent Games took the opportunity to launch Transformers Online into the Open Beta phase at the same time. The online team shooter is exclusive to China, and the latest version features the movie tie-in skin bundles for both Optimus Prime and Megatron, each costing just around USD 15.00.
Nothing major changed since the Closed Beta phase in Transformers Online, other than the addition of the first female bot, Arcee, a new map, and a couple of new skins and minor game improvements. Despite the close familiarity to Overwatch, we did enjoy the game with a casual mindset. Tencent has yet to push the game into the eSports picture, so that is something to look out for.
