MicroVolters will have to amp up their competitiveness in new mode, Arms Race!

The toy war continues in the new map, Toy Fleet, where players will quickly find out that this is no ordinary kiddie pool! >From steamboats to battleships, MicroVolters will have to dodge enemy bullets without falling in the water!

In addition to the new mode and map, new weapons, Parts & Accessories have also been introduced. With summer almost over and back to school season upon us, the MicroWorld is celebrating both occasions! MicroVolters take one last strut down the beach in Naomi's Grey Tank Top before pulling out Knox's School Ready Hoodie to gear up for class. School yard bullies will be seeing red after being whacked by the Red Drawing Pencil!

"The MicroVolts community had a great summer and now it's time to head back to school-but that doesn't mean we can't continue to have fun!" said Howard He, President and CEO of Rock Hippo Productions. "From the new Toy Fleet map to the fast paced Arms Race mode to all the new accessories, there will be plenty for MicroVolters to enjoy well into the Fall!"

Rock Hippo invites all their Canadian fans to come and see MicroVolts on exhibition at Fan Expo in Toronto, Canada this week, August 25-28! Visitors can participate in the special promotion for in-game currency as well as come grab some cool gaming swag at Booth 1445.

MicroVolts features fast paced, third person shooter action and pits players against each other in a secret battle that has been waged and going unnoticed right in our own backyard for years. No one knows for sure when or where the first toy declared war but rumor has it that the uprising began with four original limited edition figures, code-named MicroVolts. Battle lines were drawn when Naomi, Knox, Pandora, and C.H.I.P.--the prototypes--were soon joined by an endless number of modified versions. Now, toy figures around the world are engaged in an all-out war for valuable battery resources and supremacy of the Micro World. All we can do now is stay out of their way and wait for a champion to be declared! Featuring a ton of weapons, inventive character designs, and a huge list of customization features, MicroVolts is destined to invigorate and re-energize the Free2play space.

Game modes include Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Item Match, Capture the Battery, and many more featuring various toy-concept maps. For more information about MicroVolts visit www.MicroVolts.com
