Transformers Universe, the massively online tactical game is being developed by Jagex Games Studio and after today, a total of 18 Autobots and Decepticons have been revealed for the game. Recently, the developer posted two new Transformers Universe trailers detailing Autobot Catapult and Decepticon Shellshock.
The game is going to be a free-to-play browser based game that will feature microtransactions, as expected. Though Jagex have kept their quiet when it comes to the official release date of the game, there currently is a beta that you can sign up for through the official website.
Along with the trailers came short summaries for both the new entrants into the Transformers Universe realm. Shellshock is a retired transformer who is being called back in the game, here’s his story:
“Retirement was never one of Shellshock’s plans: he’s been holed up in his armory feverishly waiting for the call. Faceplate-deep in munitions and customizing his beloved miniguns, he ensured burst rates, muzzle velocities, calibers and cartridges all got a little love. A career killer, you won’t have to ask him twice to rejoin the fight. Put this slayer in mid-range with a directive for destruction and Shellshock will have a blast every time.”
Catapult, on the other hand, is a mysterious loner who tags everything that she kills. This is how her story goes:
“She moves in the shadows with the strut of a notorious gunslinger and reads cross-winds like a circling hawk. Place Catapult at long range with her Phase Chamber primed, sniper rifle cocked and license-to-terminate activated; she’ll drop her mark grill-down in the dirt for keeps. A mysterious loner, the only trace this Autobot exists is a tag scratched into every ‘Con she dispatches to the scrap yard.”
