EA today announced that MicroBot is now available on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and coming Jan. 4 on PSN ($10).
In MicroBot, players battle malicious enemies as they travel through the bloodstream, bones, lungs and brain. 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. As players eradicate the biotechnological infestation, they will harvest data fragments which allow them to unlock over 20 pieces of upgradable microtechnology. Using this newly acquired technology, players can strategically customize their MicroBot; with millions of possible configurations, players can build a MicroBot to suit any style of play.
Players can take on the infection solo or 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 innovative co-op editor, where they work together to create the ultimate MicroBot team. Finally, in addition to the Story Mode, MicroBot also features an exciting Challenge Mode, where either one or two players can see how long they can survive the battle using just one ship configuration.
