The war between the Autobots and the Decepticons has been raging for ages. In this game, you are being pulled directly into it! Whose side will you represent in the struggle over the control of the galaxy? Are you going to be on the side of good or evil?
The Transformers franchise has gone the reverse route of many other major brands. It started out as merchandise which then made its way into television series, comics, and movies. The brand was originally created by the American toy company Hasbro in cooperation with Japanese toy manufacturer Takara Tomy. The huge success of Michael Bay’s blockbuster films resulted in the brand’s revitalized popularity. The media releases also brought new merchandise and the release of several video games including the free-to-play action game Transformers Universe.
Jagex, the studio behind RuneScape, made it its goal to bring the franchise to free-to-play gamers all over the world. The publisher defines the game as a MOTA (massively online tactical action game) that is based on the ongoing war between Autobots and Decepticons. In case you’re familiar with the gaming industry, you might realize that the genre is loosely based on the MOBA genre. You will slip into the role of a commander of the faction that you choose in the beginning of the action game. Will you support the Autobots or the Decepticons? Choose wisely, as each side has its own perks.
On the battlefield, you can find a great balance between tactical warfare and action-based combat. Rash decisions could be your downfall - so think wisely before you make your next move. Failures not only affect your personal ranking on the leaderboards, but also your faction’s standing. Transformers Universe focuses very much on a team effort to decide the never-ending war between the two mech factions.
The action game features several unique Transformers, each of which have very distinct skills and powers. Understand their characteristics in order to deploy them wisely on the battlefield. Each faction features mechs for every possible combat style. Choose the one that you feel the most comfortable with. Naturally, you can also separate yourself from other players by customizing your warrior.
Transformers Universe is a true MMO that perfectly combines action, MOBA, and strategy elements.
