Transformers Universe opens up first-come, first-served beta signups

Autobots, transform into thinly veiled copies of Rhinox!
Do you want to be in the first wave of Transformers Universe testing? Then go sign up right now. No, don't finish reading the rest of this article, sign up right this moment. The first beta event is apparently taking place this weekend, March 15th and 16th, and invitations are being handed out according to the highly advanced metric of "the first people who ask for it get it." So go sign up, we'll be here when you get back.

If you don't get in, you can still entertain yourself with two new character reveals past the cut. Front-Line is a big old hulk of an Autobot warrior with twin axes, a chaingun, and a massive hammer for use against the Decepticons. Conduit, meanwhile, takes care of the Deception medical needs while also providing fire support with his ranged rifle. You can take a look at both videos embedded just past the break.

The time is drawing ever nearer. The time to test your metal. The time when Transformers Universe opens the doors to a select few for an exclusive, early Closed Beta that begins this weekend. This first wave of closed, early access Beta play is strictly controlled and players will need to sign up NOW to be a part of it. This is genuinely a strictly limited opportunity to be amongst the first group of players in the world to get hands-on with the brand new Transformers Universe experience.

And, to help whet players' appetites even more, Jagex are introducing two brand new transformers warriors before the Closed Beta kicks off -- Front-Line and Conduit. These new transformers characters are exclusive to Transformers Universe and the only way gamers will be able to get to play them is to be a part of the Closed Beta program that kicks off over the weekend.

So just who are these new characters that fans will be able to take charge of and wreak havoc with? First up is Front-Line, a big Autobot brawler. He's the first in, and the last out, of any fight. He's a slugger with an instinct for mayhem. Armed with a mini-gun, axe and hammer attack, this is a bot that definitely shouldn't be messed with. Conduit is a Decepticon who is part healer and part killer. He's fully in touch with his darker side and, while able and primed to heal and keep his allies fighting for the cause, there's no mistaking the lethality of his attacks.

If players want to be a part of the Closed Beta program, they can sign up now. Closed Beta goes live over the weekend of March 15 & 16, and entry is strictly limited to a first come, first served basis. For those lucky enough to make it in, a whole new Universe awaits you...
