Jagex will finally show off Transformers Universe to the UK public later this month.

 

MCM Expo will be the first UK event to host the MMO based on the popular Hasbro toys. Attendees will be able to meet members of the Transformers Universe development team and learn more about the game in a special panel session.

 

And it will be the first time UK consumers will be able to reserve their character names and choose whether they will side with the Autobots or Decepticons when the final game launches later this year.

 

Jagex will also be showing off its flagship MMO RuneScape, marking the first time the game has been showcased at MCM Expo.

 

The pop culture convention will be held at London's ExCeL centre and runs from Friday, May 25th to Sunday, May 27th.

It mentions about people reserving their names. I wonder if that mean our current Jagex logins wont be compatable?

It says UK consumers so I am guessing that isn't the case. I'd guess that maybe people are the expo could have the chance to reserve a name, but that seems a bit far-fetched and exclusive.

Well, I wouldn't want to be "ForsakenMage" in the Transformers Universe honestly. XD But gosh, now I wish I could go! ;_;

True but it would suck if I couldn't use my login name as my character name on day 1 because some troll or someone who cant spell has taken the name I use.

Death of runescape and such.

 

No reason the games can't coexist. I won't be jumping ship, will you?

 

Probably if the games fresh and not being squeezed of any penny. *cough* SOF *cough*

They're probably going to start right off with microtransactions, that way it's always a part of the game.

 

You can't really fault Jagex for wanting to make money of their games, they are a business after all, but they definitely could be going about it in a less intrusive manner.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Correction: Blame IVP for pulling Jagex's strings. All the marketing tricks only started after IVP bought majority shares. Not a coincidence.

The difference between RuneScape and TransFormers Universe is that microtransactions will have been baked into the game from the beginning so probably wont have such an adverse effect.
