The lights are on
Transformers Universe has been in development for some time, and we had a chance to interview members of the Jagex team almost a year ago. Since then, the title has shifted focus enough that Jagex is describing it not in traditional MMO terminology, but as a “MOTA.”
Transformers Universe will be a massively online tactical action game that runs in your browser and is free-to-play. Players will have control of a squad of Autobots or Decepticons. Beyond that though, we don’t know exactly how the game will shake out, as details are fairly thin right now.
Thankfully, Jagex is getting ready to let players into a closed beta in advance of the summer 2014 launch. You can sign up for that here.

This has me interested, might be the first F2P game on my PC. Looking forward to learning more.
wait, Jagex? The people who made Runescape?
Looks interesting, if the controls are good and hopefully enough people are online playing this maybe a hit.
please let this be playable on mac this looks awesome!
I'm pretty sure a MOTA is just a MOBA with Transformers... I signed up anyways, because it's freaking Transformers.
As much as I love Jagex - I'm frequently on Runescape - their work ethic is almost hideous. Several times they've shifted the parameters of a project until they were left with no money and nothing to show for it. They're good developers, they're just really awful at managing their affairs. And it seems to be coming from middle management.
I gotta say, I'm not too big of a fan of the Prime-style visuals
