There’s a new Transformers game in the works by giant Chinese developer Tencent. After the failure of Jagex’s Transformers Universe and the failed development of NCSoft’s Project HON, Transformers Online is a team shooter powered by Unreal Engine 4 and is a character shooter, meaning that you can pick your Transformer and enter a fight between Autobots and Decepticons.
You’ll probably get to pick Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Jazz, Ratchet and more. Transformers Online seems to mix first-person and third-person perspectives – the former for the shooting bits and the latter for melee and vehicles.
The closed beta in China is expected to begin on August 5 and there’s no word yet on an English release. Here is the announcement trailer and a cam video with some gameplay.
