Jagex might be calling Transformers Universe a “MOTA” (that’s multiplayer tactical action game), but it looks an awful lot like a MOBA. A new gameplay trailer gives us a look at Hasbro’s ever-popular robots in disguise duking it out.
The Runescape developer has shifted the title from a traditional MMO that put players in control of a single Autobot or Decepticon to something more akin to toy collection. Commanders will assemble teams of transformers to do battle with other players.

There is still an MMO undercurrent, but Jagex says the game isn’t an MMORPG or MOBA. It will feature both PvE and PvP gameplay. Transformers Universe is in beta now, and you can sign up for access on the official site.
