Codemasters & Koch Media today released the first gameplay trailer for the hotly anticipated return of the classic gaming franchise Micro Machines, ahead of the release on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Steam (PC) on 23rd June. You can watch the miniature mayhem unfold in the first Micro Machines World Series gameplay trailer below, or play it at http://www.micromachinesgame.com.

Whether driving a SPY CAR destroying a HOVERCRAFT with a NERF Blaster in the Games Room, or a DUMP TRUCK blowing up a TANK with a Dynamite Launcher in the Garden, Micro Machines World Series will have players of all ages smiling from ear-to-ear while delivering absolute carnage.

Executive Producer, Chris Gray said: “Micro Machines World Series is a fresh new take on the franchise that is great fun for previous players and those new to Micro Machines. It’s a firm fan favourite and we are delighted to be bringing it to the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Chris continued: “In addition to the return of the classic Race and Elimination modes, we are extremely excited by the new Battle Arenas. Having 12 players in the same match, all fighting it out with a variety of vehicles and crazy weapons is great fun. Gamers are going to love it.”

Players will take on a whole new way of racing in Micro Machines World Series. Not only will players be able to burn rubber across the Kitchen table in familiar 4 player ‘sofa style’ local races, but also enter into larger 12 player on-line races. So many players on one screen seriously increases the challenge, and all 12 vehicles jostling for position and hurtling toward each corner makes it even more perilous and exciting.

In addition to the code racing modes are the Battle Modes, which pit up to 12 players into the same arena for frantically competitive multiplayer games including CAPTURE THE FLAG and TERRITORY as well as 6v6 TEAM DEATHMATCH. All of these are set to the interactive backdrop of 15 battle arenas including The Laser Lab, Buzzsaw Battle and negotiating the HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS board without being eaten.

Players can personalise their Battles with 12 new vehicles including the SPY CAR, HOVERCRAFT, MONSTER TRUCK or G I JOE H.I.S.S TANK, each with their own strengths and weapons. Players will set off trying to crush, smash and destroy opponents with numerous new weapons including the Dynamite Launcher, Tidal Wave, Cobra Turret and NERF Blasters. Every vehicle also has a level of customisation with new skins, completely changing the original look. The inclusion of Emotes, Victory Poses and Grave Stamps also add to the camaraderie and bragging rights at the end of a match.

Adding to the hilarity and fun of Micro Machines, the UK release is narrated by the one and only Brian Blessed. In his own, recognisable and unique style Brian bursts forth announcing the start of races as well as “ENEMY FLAG TAKEN” and “MICRO MACHINES IS ALIVE!”

In like Flynn.
Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

It's been available on Boomerang for pre-order for rental for a while now and I'm really looking forward to trying it and if we could get a PS4 GRCade league going that would be amazing :D .

Codemasters released an all-but-name Micro Machines game a few years ago called Toybox Turbos which came and went without a trace. I am concerned that, along with all the attempts to revitalise arcade racers, there just isn't the market for this anymore.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Hopefully the license/history will make a difference with this.

Not really, you'd all be sat right up against a 14" crt anyway so the few feet of controller cable you had wasn't really an issue. Plus you were in striking range to dish out dead arms :nod:
