Tencent reveals Transformers Online, a team-based Chinese shooter
Do you lie awake at night and think that what would really compete with Overwatch is a team-based shooter based on Transformers? Apparently, the brain trust at Tencent thought exactly that. Transformers Online has just been announced as an upcoming title in China, albeit with no hard release date. You can check out the teaser trailer as well as some hand-captured demo reel footage below.
The game is listed simply as an FPS by Tencent, although all of the demo footage appears to be third-person. No word on any other online frills or any sort of western localizations thus far; fans will also note that it seems to have some odd blending of styles and sizes going on, with Optimus Prime using his film design while Swindle shows up in a more G1/Animated design and Megatron looks like his War for Cybertron counterpart. You can take a look at what exists thus far below and draw your own conclusions.
