Jagex will proudly introduce motorbikes into the free third-person MOBA game, TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE this week. The launch of the two bots – Swagger (Autobot) and Diabla (Decepticon) – is set to shake up the epic battles already being waged in game, and marks the first time that new combatants will make an entrance since the move into Open BETA. The debut of motorbikes in TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE will provide players with access to bots with greater levels of agility in vehicle form, as well as new abilities - such as invisibility cloaking - for advanced battle tactics.

An Interceptor-class bot suitable for hit and run tactics, Swagger is the first fighter in the game to pack a cloaking device. This makes him an extremely deadly opponent to face in battle, especially if Decepticon players find themselves with reduced defences.

A damage-focused Decepticon with defences that allow her to stay in the heat of battle for longer, Diabla gives players the capability to roam the battle map, focus on a single target, and take them offline without a second thought. Both Swagger and Diabla dish out more damage than other bots when in vehicular form, which also provides them with greater levels of agility when hunting down targets.

“We have already seen some truly heroic battles being played out in our first weeks of Open BETA, but the introduction of these agile bots will bring a new dimension for both Autobot and Decepticon players alike,” announced David Nicholson, vice president of TRANSFORMERS UNIVERSE. “As the first bots to roll out since we entered Open BETA at the start of July, Swagger and Diabla represent our continued commitment to delivering regular content updates, an extensive range of characters, and real depth of combat.”

PC and Mac players can choose to install or play the game directly in their browser @ www.transformersuniverse.com.
