FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Markham, Canada – December 12, 2013 – The chilly weather outside won’t be a problem for MicroVolts players cozying up with the holiday-themed update FROSTY FROLICKERS!  New weapons, parts, accessories, and game features are now available with the latest game update free to download.  The war between action figures over battery resources surges on at www.MicroVolts.com.

The MicroVolts own band of misfit toys have been granted official North Pole citizenship! Naomi dons her deceptively cute Mrs. Claus get-up, Pandora is ready to party with her Gift-Wrap dress, Knox has no problem braving the cold weather with Snowman parts, and C.H.I.P. brightens the sky with the crimson Menoetius set. A third guardian, Pandora’s Archangel of Fate has also joined the fight to protect the Micro World!

Santa’s workshop has been busier than normal this year, making festive weaponry for both naughty and nice toys! This year’s arsenal includes the Candy Cane Uzi rifles, Clausscope snipers, and Rudolph Sledge bazookas. These weapons are limited to the Holiday Season only, and feature special light-up effects that will make your tree jealous. New mystery capsule items are also available. The ice-powered Blizzard grenade launcher, colourful AC-ME shotgun variants, and the Archangel Accessory: Shield of Fate, are all up for grabs!

MicroVolters will be surrounded by the awesome holiday spirits when they frolic in the newly decorated social plaza. Take in the atmosphere with special holiday music, cards, decorations, and a beautiful tree towering over a pile of presents while the snow falls outside. Don’t get too comfortable though, as the menacing Zombie enemies have been made even stronger and faster after all their feasting.

The Frosty Frolickers update also brings the much requested window mode feature along with several game balance adjustments. Check out the game, get more info, and stay tuned for new updates at www.MicroVolts.com.

About MicroVolts Surge

A secret battle has been waged unnoticed right in our own backyard.

Five prototype toy figures, carriers of the revolutionary Micro Battery, have special instructions from their maker to activate others of their kind. But with limited battery resources, they are forced to fight each other for power. Meanwhile, mechanical tracker monsters pose an even greater threat to a Micro World full of broken toys looking for a second chance. The toys are small, but their war is big.

MicroVolts Surge is a free-to-play online multiplayer third-person shooter. A unique gaming experience awaits action gamers, with its dynamic cartoon style graphics and intense fast-paced gameplay. Players can create their own custom character, swap between 7 weapon types on the fly, and battle it out in over 20 exciting locations. With events and tournaments hosted every week and strong community involvement through social media channels and forums, there's something for both social and competitive gamers.  Join the battle today at  www.MicroVolts.com!
