'Transformers Universe' Making Public Debut At BotCon

Transformers Universe is a massively online tactical action game that offers fast-paced, battle-centric, tactical action with game modes for core gamers, casual gamers and Transformers enthusiasts alike.

Visitors to BotCon will be the first to see the graphical style and direction for the game and be able to see firsthand how the Jagex development team is working with Hasbro to create the look and feel of it through live concept art and animation demonstrations at the Jagex booth.

The Jagex booth will offer fans a chance to meet and engage with members of the development team, and watch exclusive video footage of how a Transformers character is developed in-game.

Those visiting the booth will also have the unique opportunity to design their own Transformers character from in-game assets and take away a printed copy of their AutoBots or Decepticons creation. The ability to design and customise your own Transformers character will be a key feature in the game and fans will be getting a first taste of what they can look forward to from this new MMO.

Jagex will also be welcoming the Transformers community to contribute their thoughts and opinions about AutoBots and Decepticons in the video area of the booth, where the first battle for supremacy will begin. Who will come out on top?  

Mark Gerhard, CEO at Jagex Games Studio, commented: “BotCon is the world’s premier destination for Transformers enthusiasts and, with so many loyal fans gathered together in one place, it’s the natural event to unveil the very first details of Transformers Universe. It will be great to meet the Transformers fans in person and we are especially excited about offering them the chance to design their own Transformers character, which will be a key feature of the game when it launches next year.”

Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Gaming and Media at Hasbro, commented: “The unveiling of some of the first details of Transformers Universe from Jagex at BotCon, where Hasbro celebrates all elements of our hugely popular Transformers brand, is an extremely exciting prospect for both Hasbro and the dedicated fanbase attending. We are delighted to welcome Jagex to the show and are sure that what the fans will able to see, participate in and take away from their experience at the Jagex booth will make them as excited about the upcoming MMO as we at Hasbro are.”

Transformers BotCon runs from the 3rd – 5th June at the Pasadena Convention Centre, California. The Jagex booth can be found in the Main Conference Hall.
