Those of you that took heed and signed up for the Transformers Universe closed beta opportunity earlier this year may have seen something drop in your email today. Jagex has held details to the game close to its collective chest, and as we recently found out, it was with good reason. But for those invited, the day is upon us – yes, us! TU will begin its closed beta testing tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12 for the two-hour span of 6:00 PM-8:00 PM EST.
A second session is planned for four days later on Sunday, December 16 from 2:00-4:00 PM EST.
To join the battle as quick as possible make sure your Java, DirectX and VSRuntime are the latest versions. There may only be 8 bots and team deathmatch available for these sessions, but Jagex felt it was enough content to warrant launching a preliminary Game Guide that we can consume while we wait.
Unfortunately, Jagex has included a non-disclosure agreement with closed beta invites. This means that once we agree to it we can’t report on any juicy Transformers Universe details that we gather from our play sessions. That won’t stop our news by any means, just that we’ll have to stick to official disseminations before op-eds and the like can be drummed up.
