The folks over at Jagex weren’t kidding when they recently announced that they were thoroughly preparingTransformers Universe’s launch later this summer. Not only have they since then released the free-to-play MOTA’s first official trailer, but also introduced its first playable characters. Meet Meltdown and Duststorm, an Autobot and a Decepticon who will battle it out against each other.
If you’re not familiar with the Transformers universe, here’s what you need to know. The Autobots and Decepticons have been in a massive war over the future of their home planet called Cybertron. The Autobots, led by Optimus Prime, have made it their goal to restore their planet after it had nearly been destroyed by a civil war caused by the Decepticons. While the Autobots would prefer to lead a peaceful existence, they do not shy away from fighting against the Decepticons who are using violence and force to reach the goals of their revolution led by Megatron. He holds a personal grudge against Optimus Prime who was elected to lead the Renaissance.
Meltdown is the first Autobot to join Transformers Universe. While he hates war, he is a loyal fighter who would never leave an ally behind. Meltdown excels at healing and repairing himself and his fellow team members. He can absorb large amounts of damage and withstand quite some beating in order to do so. If he has to, Meltdown will deal some massive damage with jhis Protex Rocket Launcher and two beam guns.
Duststorm, the first Decepticon to be added to Transformers Universe’s roster, is a female bot who fights with an underlying and consuming rage. On the battlefield, she excels from a safe distance shooting enemies with her electrifying pistol and rifles and her deadeye precision. When things get rough and her opponents get too close, her only choice is to knock them down and escape as quickly as possible considering that her defenses are rather weak.
