Jagex Games Studio has offered up a brand new trailer for their in-development free-to-play browser game Transformers Universe, showing off the Autobots and Decepticons' war in action.
Touted as a massively online, tactical action game, or as Jagex likes to call it a MOTA, the trailer below is just a short example of what you can expect from the transforming title. The team has also promised that more updates will be making their way to the public as development moves forward, with a beta phase having been announced alongside the trailer release.

As the Commander of a new squad, you will recruit, maintain and battle others with a unique collection of Transformers warriors created in collaboration with our friends at Hasbro.
Autobots versus Decepticons, you’ll team up to play with and against other Commanders around the world in tactical and strategic online battles, competing for supremacy in the global faction war. Legendary Transformers characters will make special appearances – but more on that another time!
Jagex has been somewhat quiet on the game's development, with the studio laying off 13 members of the team last June as the game was moved to a new engine. Back in 2012 Jagex decided to switch from a massively multiplayer online game to the more traditional battle arena style that you see below.
Transformers Universe is preparing to launch sometime later this year, but for now check out the trailer below and make sure you transform yourself into a willing beta participant.
