Micro Machines is back in a brand-new title for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Announced today by Codemasters and Koch Media, Micro Machines World Series will be launching on April 21st and will feature up to 12-player races online as well as four-player local splitscreen, bringing one of the UK's most beloved franchises roaring into the twenty-first century.
Classic courses such as the garden, kitchen and workshop are all set to return in Micro Machines World Series, alongside fan-favourite game modes such as Race and Elimination. The game will also introduce brand-new Battle Arenas, allowing players to create untold levels of destruction against their friends or AI opponents.
There will also be team-based game modes such as Capture the Flag and King of the Hill that require players to take advantage of each vehicle's unique features in order to secure their team victory.
Codemasters' vice president of 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.
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 will be launching both physically and digitally on PC, and boxed PS4 and Xbox One versions will also be available. For a teaser of what's to come, watch the announcement trailer below:
