MICROVOLTS DEBUTS NEW SERVER TO GROWING NUMBER OF NORTH AMERICAN PLAYERS

Markham, Canada June 1, 2012 - Rock Hippo Productions Ltd. announced today it is making room in the Micro World with the launch of a brand new North American Beta Server for its popular cartoon style third-person shooter, MicroVolts as part of its latest MicroUpdate.   To celebrate this new update and the start of the European Cup right around the corner, MicroVolts will host a variety of exciting events featuring all-new challenges and in-game prizes!  To check out the new server and all of the events, players can visit www.MicroVolts.com.  ;

More MicroVolters means more servers, and to kick off the latest North American server as well as the start of Euro 2012, MicroVolts is launching an array of exciting events including two prize-grabbing challenges for players!  In the 1 Million RT Challenge, players can purchase a Euro Ball accessory item that shows which team they think will win the cup.  Players who predict the winning team correctly will get their equal share of 1 million RT plus a permanent Euro Ball Accessory item!  The entry deadline is the morning of June 7th so players should submit their predictions now at http://mall.microvolts.com/eurocup.aspx

From June 7th –July 1st, players can also participate in the Game Day Challenge, where every day players can purchase a Euro Ball accessory item to select which team they think will win in that day’s matches.    All items include a bonus 1,000 MP, but if players predict correctly, they will double up on their rewards!  Players who are super confident in their team can purchase more items to increase their winnings.  Additionally, MicroVolts will be adding all-new Clan Logos for each of the Euro 2012 participating countries allowing players to show off which team their clan supports!

MicroVolts’ Montage Mania event was such a huge success it was hard to pick a winner!  This time around, the MicroVolts Team  is leaving it up to the MicroVolts community to decide!  Players can check out the MicroVolts’ YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/microvolts to view the “MicroVolts Montage Mania: Final 12” playlist  to “Like” their favorite montage video.  In addition, ever-observant MicroVolters that noticed a bit of a surprise “trollage” at the end of the last “Rumpus Room Ruckus” trailer, can look forward to the chance to exclusively win these quirky rage faces for their in-game character throughout the summer!
