Transformers MMO Rolling Out

NetDragon, the same guys behind the curious-looking Dungeon Keeper Online, were this week revealed as the developers for a new massively-multiplayer online game based on the Transformers licence.

The game has been officially sanctioned by Hasbro, will be a role-playing game, and... will only be released (at least initially) in China, "Asia", Russia (and CIS states), the Middle East and North Africa. No North America, no Western Europe, no Australasia.

There are no screenshots, no concept art and no further information on the game (or whether it's based on the original series, comics, Michael Bay's movies, whatever), so all you've got left to do is wildly speculate, dream and hope for the best. Who knows, it may even be good, and as Company of Heroes Online has shown, it's not that unusual for former Asia-only games to be released in the West.

    I have never been so elated and so depressed at the same time...

    I guess it doesn't matter though - i'm really only interested in the upcoming 40k MMO :D

      I know, right?

      I mean, on one hand, it's a freaking Transformers MMO. Hell yeah!

      On the other hand, no European, North American or Australasian release currently planned. Bastards!

    So, it's going to be like the Spore Creator, right? Where you make your toon's 'human form' and your toon's 'vehicle form', and the game works out how to animate the transformation, right?



    Wait, does Japan, the country where the franchise was born, get a look in? "Asia" is a pretty nebulous term.

    Yeah "Asia" is mighty ambiguous. No NA release for sure would mean there will be no Australasia/Oceanic release which, to be honest is a bit of a relief.

    If I never get to see it, I'll never know the disappointment it will potentially bring. Leave me and my 1980's alone thank you very much.

    Awesome, although some days I get the feeling it would be easier for sites to mention IF a game is being released in Australasia rather than when it's not.
