Micro Machines World Series is Codemasters' attempt at reinvigorating the Micro Machines franchise for modern consoles and PC. There is some nostalgia here but it looks like this game is mostly an update of their Toybox Turbos game that they developed before getting the Micro Machines license.
Micro Machines is playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows, Mac and Linux. Micro Machines World Series is the same fun racing game that will appeal to all ages. Everybody will enjoy racing their favorite miniature cars around in fun environments such as; the garden, kitchen, workshop and others.
In addition to Race and Elimination, Micro Machines World Series introduces all new Battle Arenas which can be played with your friends or AI opponents. With a lack of any championship mode in single player the game focuses on it's online offerings. Team play lets you work with your friends using your vehicles’ unique abilities in modes such as “Capture the Flag” and “King of the Hill.” Codemasters might have taken a page out of Rocket League's book here.
Released June 2017, Micro Machines World Series supports up to 12 players online and four players split-screen. The game ships with 12 vehicles, each with their own weapons and abilities, most of which have Nerf branding (Hasbro owns both Micro Machines and Nerf branding terms). Most of the vehicle customization options are dropped from loot crates.
