Over $750,000 being offered in prizes.
Transformers Universe is, you guessed it, a new MOBA being developed based on the Transformers universe. It will be, like the most successful MOBAs are, free to play, and it will be entering open beta starting July 4th. To commemorate the open beta, there will be a double XP weekend, a 24-hour live Twitch stream (11am EDT July 5 – 11am EDT July 6) 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.”
If you haven’t already, and want to check out the game, feel free to register on the game’s official website, so you too can check it out over the weekend.
