Universal Monsters Online

hold on....gimme a minute... okay I am awake and not dreaming, this is really happening...

Look at that willya?

Aint that sumthin'?

Yes folks what we have here is a Free to Play MOBA featuring the Universal Monsters, and we all know how special these guys are to me and my late Uncle Freak. Basically you get to pick your monster from the sizable stable of Universal Monsters and beat the snot out of each other. That's right, pit Frankenstein against the Metaluna Mutant and see which freak of science is stronger. Let Dracula mix it up with the Mummy, The Bride take on the Invisible Man, Wolf Man sink his fangs into the Mole People. I'm so damn excited right now I could scream! Seriously this looks to be great with some seriously solid character designs for the main monsters check 'em out after the official press release...

“San Francisco – June 12, 2012—Bigpoint today released new information about its anticipated free-to-play (F2P) browser-based title, Universal Monsters Online. The game, which Bigpoint is developing in collaboration with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, will enable players to experience Universal’s iconic cast of classic monsters in a highly-competitive Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) setting.

Taking on the persona of Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, and The Creature from the Black Lagoon – among many other notable monsters from Universal’s rich history – players compete with and against each other in a blend of combat and strategic game play.

Like all Bigpoint titles, Universal Monsters Online will be F2P. In-game currency can be used to purchase items such as new characters (after a free-trial period), unique character skins, and special abilities.

Bigpoint plans to begin closed beta testing shortly, and is now encouraging players to sign-up for early access at:

Man I am loving that Bride design, she's got that pretty girl that stomp ya into the dirt look to her! And that Creature is KILLER.

Now get yer butts over to the website and sign up for a chance to beta test, I have, ya can count on that. Oh and while your there go to the character section and drool over the animated models of some of the monsters. I did and now I have a puddle to clean up.


  1. Yup, it's unbelievably exciting! Although I am curious if this would be happening if they weren't planning on new BluRays for the classics...

  2. I love the little Romanian village! The Universal Monsters have always been great for promotions, from Hostess Monster Cakes to Pepsi cartons in October, so I don't mind if its the game's only raison d'etre. Hopefully this will find its way to Wii and X-box before it goes the way of Lego Universe! Love the Bride of Frankenstien, now how about Dracula's brides or a female Creature?
