While the Transformers franchise is certainly one that elicits the incredible amounts of excitement from its fans, there still hasn’t been a definitive video game that truly represents what we’d expect robot-on-robot combat to look and feel like. Transformers Universe is the latest effort to subvert this stereotype, which is being developed by Runescape developer, Jagex, who started off trying to make it into a MMORPG, but ended up redesigning it as something that more closely resembles a MOBA. The game has been in closed beta since March, and since then almost 2 million battles have occured, which seems to be a good sign, and the better news is that the Transformers Universe open beta has now begun.
If you’re interested in checking out the open beta, you can sign up on their official site here. While it’s going to be hard for players just joining the game to keep pace with those who have played for a long time, new players will benefit from double XP this weekend.
