Jagex has announced a really exciting contest for their upcoming game, Transformers Universe. The game itself is due out in 2012 and will let players experience a Massively Multiplayer Online game set in the iconic Transformers world, with a battle raging between the Autobots and the Decepticons.
The contest that Jagex is running is in conjuntion with their activities at New York City Comic-Con for the game. Players are being given the option to name both the Autobot and Decepticon player classes for one particular class. Jagex is running a poll with three predetermined choices for each faction as well as a spot to write in your own suggestion. The most popular entry will win when the contest closes on October 16th.
Managing Editor Bill Murphy said, “This is a truly exciting event for MMO and TRANSFORMERS fans to have a chance to do and we are really just ecstatic to be exclusively hosting one of the polls. Fan and player involvement at this stage of development is unprecedented and I think people will be floored to have a chance at influencing the names of two of the classes in this hugely anticipated game.” Voting on MMORPG.com will run at the same time as the first poll and will open at 4:00 PM EDT on Thursday October 13, and will close at 6:00 PM EDT Sunday October 16.
