So there’s a new free game in town, MicroVolts, and it’s not your usual generic fantasy hack-and-slash with shiny exploding magic spells. It’s a Massively Multiplayer Online Third Person Shooter (MMOTPS). I have to confess this is the first MMO of that type I have encountered. The game is really fun and fast.
From the Microvolts game website:
Open beta has been out for two weeks and the game’s population is growing every day. The first official update to MicroVolts was the addition of new server channels to support the growing playerbase.
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 a–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!
With 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. Intuitive controls and a third person view make the game easy to play and fun for both newcomers and veterans of shooter games. Game modes include Free for All, Team Deathmatch, Item Match, Capture the Battery, and many more featuring various maps designed by toy concept. For more information about the game please visit the Microvolts website.
The concept just kills me… a toy war! Those killer toys must be stopped at all costs!
No grind? It seems they are aiming for the more casual but competitive players.
