Transformers Universe converts from MMO to ‘MOTA’

Posted on February 6, 2014 AT 11:58am

Transformers Universe, Jagex Game Studio’s browser-based MMORPG set in the Transformers universe, is now a “massively online tactical action game,” or MOTA, CEO Mark Gerhard revealed in a recent blog post on the game’s official website.

“We’ve built a massively online, tactical action game, or MOTA as I like to call it!” Gerhard wrote in his post. “Transformers Universe offers fast-paced, battle-centric, tactical action with a selection of game modes for core gamers, casual gamers, and Transformers enthusiasts alike.”

According to Gerhard, Transformers Universe will put players in the role of a Transformer squad commander aligned with either the Autobots or Decepticons. Depending on the faction, squads boast various different playstyles, weaponry, augmentations and abilities to be employed strategically against other players and their squads.

Gerhard promised in-game screenshots and an in-engine trailer “very soon.” The game itself is set to launch this summer.
