ChinaJoy is often an event that sees huge announcements coming from the kings of the Eastern MMO, Tencent Games, and 2016’s event was no different as the team announced a brand new online game based on the official IP of Hasbro, Transformers Online. The eagle-eyed team over at MMOCulture first spotted a teaser website earlier in the week but very little information was available and the exact nature of Transformers Online was uncertain until now.
During ChinaJoy 2016 Tecent Games confirmed that Transformers Online was in development and they showcased some of the games features and mechanics at one of the exhibition halls. One attendee managed to record some of the gameplay which you can check out below:
Transformers Online is being developed under the Unreal Engine 4 and will enter the action-packed genre of role-based team shooters, along the lines of Overwatch and Battleborn.
