This weekend a new MOBA joins the fray as award-winning developers Jagex announce the upcoming open beta event for the highly anticipated, Transformers Universe. The exciting opportunity to enter the world of Transformers Universe is available to all gamers this Independence Day weekend complete with an exciting 24-hour Twitch.tv stream event and $75,000 in prizes.

“We’re
delighted to be opening our game to the public, a game we believe is
worthy to be Jagex’s second massively multiplayer online game,” said
Mark Gerhard, Jagex CEO & CTO. “Our Beta community have been having
enormous fun playing, as have we, often being schooled by them! Everyone
has been absolutely fantastic throughout the Closed Beta and provided
us with great feedback which we continue to implement into the game
service through our weekly updates.”   

He
continued: “True to our heritage we’ve pioneered a game in which all
content can be enjoyed for free, simply through play. With almost two
million battle victories recorded during the Closed Beta, our players
evidently had the most fun — and success — while playing together with
their friends in teams. I’ve been delighted to see teams invent
strategies and tactics that we had not even imagined, and can’t wait to
see what new players come up with.”  

Transformers Universe hopes to blend the increasingly popular MOBA platform with an established Transformers IP, other both tactical depth and iconic characters from throughout the Transformers universe. A wide range of customization options, including weapons, armor and powercores, will allow players to tweak and modify each of the available characters to suit their individual play style.
