As well as an adorable trailer video, featuring tiny fire trucks and ambulances, Codemasters have revealed a fair bit of detail regarding the game modes and aesthetics of the upcoming title. In a post on their official blog, the veteran studio explains that “as well as bringing to you the classic game modes like Race and Elimination, Micro Machines World Series will introduce a new style of game play to the series: Battle Mode. The all-new Battle Arenas will allow you to wreak mass destruction on a miniature scale against your friends or the AI.” The post goes on to to describe a fourth mode of play; “Team Play lets you work together using your vehicles’ unique skills with modes such as King of the Hill or Capture the Flag”.
Players will also find some recognizable toys trundling along the tracks. Thanks to a licensing deal with Hasbro, you can expect to be swerving your wheels around the likes of G.I Joe, Nerf, Hungry Hungry Hippos and Ouija to name just a few. The classic focus on multiplayer has also been retained with confirmation of both local 4-player support, as well as online races with up to 12 players.
At the moment only the console versions are available for pre-order, but the game is scheduled for a PC release sometime in April.
