Electronic Arts has revealed the first details on MicroBot, an arcade-style shooter that will be released in Winter 2011 on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Players control a microscopic ship – a MicroBot – on a mission to destroy a biotechnological infestation.
In MicroBot, players battle malicious enemies as they travel through veins, bones, lungs and brains. The rhythms and fluids of the human body create a dynamic environment that affects movement and gameplay, providing both combat advantages and additional hazards to overcome. Just as each human body is unique, MicroBot creates new levels to ensure gamers are given a replayable experience.
Players can take on the infection together by teaming up in a cooperative drop-in/drop-out multiplayer experience. Not only will players battle side-by-side, but they can also upgrade their MicroBots simultaneously in the co-op editor, where they work together to create the ultimate MicroBot team.
Developed in conjunction with Naked Sky Entertainment, EA is scheduled to launch MicroBot in Winter 2011.
