Classic game modes such as Race and Elimination will make a comeback, alongside all-new Battle Arenas which allow you to wreak havoc and mass destruction on a miniature scale against your friends or AI. Team Play allows you to work together using your vehicles’ unique skills in modes such as “Capture The Flag” and “King of the Hill.”
Micro Machines was designed with an emphasis on fun and is the ultimate pick-up-and-play experience that is easy to learn and impossible to put down. The game will launch on April 21st 2017.
Codemasters’ VP Publishing, Jonathan Bunney, commented, “The original Micro Machines was a breakthrough multiplayer racing game, and remains much loved in the gaming community. We saw great success earlier this year with our free-to-play mobile game, but this brand new console title takes the franchise to its greatest levels of multiplayer mayhem, and enables you to play with your friends on the same sofa or across the world.”
Bunney continued, “Whether you’ve been playing Micro Machines since the early days or are new to the craziness of racing and battling vehicles across household environments, this incredibly fun experience is a welcome break from all the serious multiplayer alternatives. With the support of Hasbro and being able to feature some of their biggest brands, such as HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS, G.I. JOE, OUIJA and NERF, this represents the very best of social gaming.”
Micro Machines World Series is able to support up to 12 players online and four players on the same screen across a multitude of racing and battling environments. Each of the 12 vehicles has its own unique load out of weapons and abilities. The game will launch with a wide range of customization options.
