Let the games begin! And it has began at EGX London 2014, where tons of games are out there for you to experience or at least read about them if you can’t be there. Jagex has some exciting news that they announced at the event, they introduced both Pandemic for the Decepticons and Outside for the Autobots, who are added to the array of warriors that are already in ‘Transformers Universe.’ As of today, players will be able to experience both warriors in the game’s live beta, plus it will be showcased on the Twitch stage at the event from 5pm BST on Sunday September 28th.
The Decepticons welcome the first warrior that has the ‘controller’ status, Pandemic, “an inventive new sub-class that can weaken, trap and manipulate enemies against their will.” Pandemic would be a good ally and a worst enemy, because of the ability to inflict viral infections, a grapple to use against enemies, and then drag them to where he is, then Pandemic will temporarily disable your current weapon that has been equipped. With any MMO, its a drag when lets say your best weapon gets disabled for a temporary time, because the other spells or weapons are much weaker. Pandemic can hold his own when it comes to fights, and then be able to escape while transforming into his stylish sports car form.

Now the Decepticons can’t have all the fun now, can they? And just for that, the Autobots have received a new warrior, Outsider. Outsider has come with an array of assault weapons, and the talent he is known for is his equipment load-out. “The Localized Ground Bridge acts as a short-range teleportation device that allows him to drop into combat, attack enemies and then blink back to the location where his Unstable Receiver was previously placed.” Outsider can also use the teleportation device to create a ‘Matter Anchor, which is a ‘deployable gravity well that binds enemies and drags them towards its center.’
