Transformers Universe allows visitors to choose either the Autobot or Decepticon factions and customize their choice. Gamescon visitors will then receive a print out of the unique Transformers character they have created. When the game launches next year, players will be able to choose from various classes of robots, adding a further variant to the character creation element; already highly anticipated by fans and gamers alike.
Macro, in his warrior form, carries a heavy broadsword for up close melee combat which he wields like a chivalrous knight. In addition, his shield dome cloaks all allies within its boundaries, removing them from enemy line of sight for a limited time.
At the other end of the spectrum, Firebreaker is the first Decepticon in Transformers Universe to feature cloaking capabilities. Sacrificing his shield meter he can extend the duration of the cloak, and can also unleash a computer virus on himself that will devastate the first Autobot he comes into contact with.
"From Soundwave to Grimlock, Transformers has always championed diversity and we'll continue to complement this within our game. As such, the dynamics of the Transformers Universe battlefield will once again shift with the introduction of Macro and Firebreaker, thanks to their distinct combat skills and specialities. Plus, our burgeoning community has been clamoring for Macro for a while now, so it's fantastic to finally launch him into the game!" said David Nicholson, vice president of Transformers Universe.
Nicholson added, "With over 700,000 Commanders having enjoyed our Beta so far, we're really excited to see how these new battles pan out. You'd have thought it would be easy to guess the outcome of a contest between snipers and knights, but in Transformers Universe, it's never certain."
