If you've ever wanted to take control of a never-ending wave of either Autobots or Decepticons, now's your chance! Sign up at the official Transformers: Universe website and go nuts (and bolts). Transformers are living creatures with souls rather than the dumb machines you may take them for, however, so it is actually quite inappropriate to make tool jokes - for instance, the in-game currency in Transformers: Universe is counted in "relics", signifying the proud robot culture of such paeans of natural philosophy like Laserbeak and Soundwave.

Do not worry, puny human, as the Unicron-like machine that is Jagex will also take your pitiful Earth dollars, pounds or euros to allow you to give your noble fellow warriors dignified new paint jobs.

The game is set in the Prime timeline, known for the cartoon show Transformers: Prime, the novel Exodus and the War for Cybertron games (PC, Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, DS). How will they deal with player actions that bump into the canon of these well-established sources? As always, head-canon is the answer here.

Every Transformers: Universe is your own Transformers: Universe, as well it should be. After all, if Hasbro allows for such singular visions of their franchise as Michael Bay, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzmann and Ehren Kruger to go out into that good intergalactic night... why not all of us, friends? Why not all of us? The Matrix of Leadership is there for the grasping, you need just take a trip to robot heaven and... reach out.
