Jagex Announces Transformer Upcoming MMO’s Name And Plans To Attend Botcon 2011
Jagex released the official name of their upcoming Transformers MMO, “Transformers Universe“. They have also announced their plans to attend Botcon 2011, the official Transformers fan convention, to unveil their vision for the browser based MMO. Visitors at Botcon 2011 will be the first to see the graphic style and direction that Jagex is doing for this new MMO. I doubt this will be something that fans will be disappointed with, since Transformers is such a huge IP, I doubt Hasbro will let Jagex make any mistakes with it.
The Jagex booth will also allow fans to see exclusive video footage, along with exactly how a Transformers character is created within the game. The booth will also give the fans an opportunity to create a character within the game, and walk away with a printed copy of their custom Autobot or Decepticon creation.
Mark Gerhard, CEO at Jagex Games Studio
“BotCon is the world’s premier destination for Transformer enthusiasts and, with so many loyal fans gathered together in one place, it’s the natural event to unveil the very first details of Transformers Universe. It will be great to meet the Transformers fans in person and we are especially excited about offering them the chance to design their own Transformers character, which will be a key feature of the game when it launches next year.”
Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Gaming and Media at Hasbro
“The unveiling of some of the first details of Transformers Universe from Jagex at BotCon, where Hasbro celebrates all elements of our hugely popular Transformers brand, is an extremely exciting prospect for both Hasbro and the dedicated fanbase attending. We are delighted to welcome Jagex to the show and are sure that what the fans will able to see, participate in and take away from their experience at the Jagex booth will make them as excited about the upcoming MMO as we at Hasbro are.”
Botcon 2011 will be held June 3rd – 5th at the Pasadena Convention Centre, California. The Jagex booth can be found in the Main Conference Hall.
