The Transformers Universe team have announced that, as of today, they will be closing down and issuing refunds to paying members with the full closure being at 10am GMT on Jan 31st 2015. You can read the full announcement below

Today Jagex and Hasbro can confirm that Transformers Universe will close. This decision comes at an important time for both companies as they both realign their plans and focuses for 2015.

What does this mean for our players?

We’re hugely disappointed, but the game will be closing over the coming weeks before its full closure at 10am GMT on 31st January 2015.

As a team, we can’t thank players enough for the support that they have shown us over the last few years of development, and even more so during our BETA period.

What’s next?

The shutdown period will begin from today. As part of the winding down we will be refunding all those that have purchased a Founders Pack, as well as anyone that has purchased relic bundles and starter packs. These refunds should be all processed in the next 30 days. In addition we will be closing the ability for new players to make accounts, those of you that already have accounts will continue to be able to use them until the closure date.

If you haven’t received a refund after 16th January 2015 and believe you should have, then please contact the Jagex customer services team (tu_refunds@support.jagex.com). We will also be pushing an update live today that will switch off the ability for players to buy any more relic packs, or starter bundles.

As mentioned, on 31st Jan 2015 @ 10am GMT we will be shutting down all servers and forums and will freeze all Transformers Universe related accounts. These accounts will then be live for another 60 days (approx.) for any final queries before deletion on 31st March 2015.

Between now and the date of closure the Jagex CM team will continue to operate on the forums and we will provide relevant updates on the website as necessary.

If you have any queries about your account or refunds please contact our customer support team on tu_refunds@support.jagex.com. Please understand that they may be very busy during this time but they will respond as quickly as possible.

Thank You

Once again we want to thank all of the players that have played Transformers Universe and all those that have worked on the project. We’re sure you have thoughts and feelings that you’d like to share on this, so please do so on our forums. Please bear in mind that this is obviously a challenging time for all involved, especially the CM team. There will be plenty of things we can’t comment on, so please respect their position.

Sincerely

Transformers Universe Development Team

Last weekend saw the MCN London Expo take place here within the UK.  During the event on Saturday Jagex held a panel regarding Transformers: Universe.  Whilst we were in attendance at the event we missed the panel as we were at Nickelodeons panel on the 2012 TMNT show at the same time.  However thanks to YouTuber Apollon1 you can watch a video of the event below.

Transformers Interviews and Articles

Whilst we were sitting in on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles talk and presentation, Jagex held a presenatation to discuss the Transformers Universe MMO game (for which they are still looking for staff).

  • A free web-based MMO based on Transformers Prime.
  • Aimed to last for at least 10 years.
  • Will have various known Transformers Characters
  • At launch the game will be based on Earth but eventually other “areas” will be accessible such as Cybertron + other planets. Hence, the name “Universe”. They have stated that new transformers will be introduced as we travel from one world to another.
  • Energon is aimed to be used as a currency.
  • Real money will be integrated in the game but in what way exactly has not been yet finalized. Most likely a way to increase the pace of things for people who would like quick results. It will not be used to purchase a more powerful weapon as that would not be fair.


Regarding Customization:

  • Initially only vehicles but animal forms/beast modes to follow.
  • You can choose a male or a female character.
  • There will be classes: ie brawler, snipper, technician (not yet defined)
  • Alternate modes are not just a mount

Transformers: Prime Game

  • They're hoping for a holiday release date
  • Brawler style game play
  • All the voice actors from the show are on board
  • Based largely on the events of seasons one and some of two
  • A trailer of cut scenes was show, but no actual game play

Transformers Fall of Cybertron

  • They feel it surpasses it's predecessor in everyway
  • 18 upgradeable weapons
  • Cliffjumper(voiced by Nolan North) and Jazz have "buddy" vibe, they wanted to explore Cliffjumper's history due to his role in Transformers Prime
  • They feel they nailed Grimlock's appearance (Matt really, really likes Grimlock!)
  • Looked to the comics to establish the connection between the Dinobots and Shockwave
  • The Generations Fall of Cybertron toys have been a joint collaboration between HMS and Hasbro with the figures designed in-step with the game models

  • Head, torso, upper/lower arms and legs, wings, etc are all customizable
  • Transformation will look natural no matter what design you choose

Transformers Universe MMO

  • Free to play on any browser with Java, should look and play like a console game
  • Based in the Transformers Prime continuity, but independent of the show
  • Third person POV, with some camera adjustment
  • There will be multiple character classes to revealed later with 5 classes available at the launch
  • Probably no class changing, though you can create multiple characters of varying classes

Transformers Interviews and Articles

You may remember that on the 22nd December we reported that Jim Sorenson had posted extended G1 profiles for Swerve, Hupcap, Roadbuster and the Deluxe Insecticons­ over on his blog Disciples of Boltax.­  In that post Jim made mention to the fact that he had lost the profile for Roadbuster's partner Whirl, well I got in touch with Jim as I though I might well have it with some other behind-the-scenes papers I have around. Well since then I have sorted through my notes and I do indeed have the extended profile along with the smaller tech-spec version, both from documents dated 3rd December 1984.  So without further-a-do, I would like to present to you Whirl's full profile

5993 Deluxe Helicopter - 1985 - 12/03/84

Autobot Helicopter

Code Name: Whirl
Function: Aerial Assault

Profile:

Whirl is one Autobot who really loves his job.  As a helicopter, he doesn't just fly, he careens across the sky in what appears to be a wild, joyful dance.  But the crazy patterns he spins and weaves in flight only disguise the method to his madness.  He calculates that an enemy would be far more terrified by someone who appears to be insane than by a purely rational opponent.  Indeed, he is right.  One single, lunatic dive of Whirl's will often send Decepticons scurrying for cover even before he starts firing at them.  "An attack of insanity can be just as effective as an attack by a proton bomb," says Whirl.

Abilities:

As a helicopter, Whirl can fly at a speed of 400 mph.  He has a range of 16000 miles.  His
manoeuvrability is amazing -- he can fly at virtually any angle except upside down, and even that he can achieve while doing loops.  He packs four incendiary-shell cannons and a high-energy photon beam rifle.  He has enormous strength in robot mode and carries a hand-mounted null-ray module that shields him from any energy beam directed at him, and a leg-mounted paralyzo-box that injects a powerful, disabling fluid when bought into contact with other robotic life.

Weaknesses:

Being reckless, Whirl is prone to disabling himself by damaging his rotor blades.


Here is the tech spec profile that I also have, which is the same as the one used on the box.

Tech Spec:
AUTOBOT WHIRL
AERIAL ASSAULT
Loves his job ... careens across sky spinning and weaving wild, crazy patterns.  Believes enemies are more terrified of him if he acts insane during an attack.  Flies at 400 mph, range 1600 miles.  Amazing manoeuvrability ... can fly at almost any angle.  Carries 4 incendiary-shell cannons, hi-energy photo beam rifle.  Great strength as robot... has null-ray module on hand, paralyzo-box on leg.  Reckless... prone to rotor blade damage,

If used logically, madness makes a great weapon.
