With Jagex planning on putting out its free browser-based MMO Transformers Universe next year, there's still plenty of time for the beta to happen. Because, it's got to have a beta -- it is a videogame, after all. "It's very soon," executive producer Kris Jones said to Eurogamer.
"We don't want to pigeon-hole ourselves to just the toys, or just [Generation 1 1984-1993], or just Prime, or just the movies. We've been very clear that we want to take from all over the universe. That's why it's called Universe."
Continuing, Jones explains that "Stylistically we've taken some nods from the recent cartoon series, which have been incredibly well received."

Sunset Riders: How the west was fashionable
When we think of the American west, we think of outlaws and lawmen, settlers trying to eke out a new life in an inhospitable place and, most of all, stylish dress composed of pastels and fringe.
