The free-to-play MOTA (Massively Online Tactical Arena) game Transformers Universe is entering open beta this Independence Day (July 4). To celebrate the beta, Jagex is hosting a double XP weekend, a 24-hour live Twitch stream (11am EDT July 5 – 11am EDT July 6) and $75,000 in prizes to be won over this weekend.
Jagex, of RuneScape fame, was working on Transformers Universe as a regular MMORPG until the studio decided to change course and turn it into a MOBA. You can customize the Transformers with weapons, armour and powercores.
We were pleased with our first Transformers Universe gameplay sessions, as you can see in our Transformers Universe first look gameplay video.
