Markham, Canada – January 25, 2013 - Rock Hippo Productions Ltd. announced today the launch of its latest update – Winter Warfare - for their popular free-to-play cartoon-style third-person shooter, MicroVolts.  The war for precious battery resources never stops, even in the dead of winter. Get the new update right now before you get left out in the cold!  Join the toy war, register for events and check out the latest screenshots and trailer at www.MicroVolts.com!  

You might want to wear mittens before handling the brand new stone cold killer weapons. Crystal Swords, Icicle Rifles, and Ice Core Gatling Guns make cool additions to an ever growing all-season arsenal. 

Join Old Man Winter’s army and unleash devastating forces of nature on unprepared enemy soldiers. Assume the form of the mighty Glacies C.H.I.P., the one-of-a-kind Snowflake Pandora, or the enchanting Glacier Naomi. 

Stop the spread of the flu this season by visiting your local Micro World health clinic. The lovely Medic and First Aid Naomi will give you some tips to fight nasty viruses and germs. Most importantly, remember to stay stylish out there with the new toasty Dragon Toque or the omg-so-cute Rabbit and Bunny Ears. 

Several new accessories, including Roy-Ban Shaders, Boosters, Bass Speaker, and more, should help you beat the winter blues. If that’s not enough, check out the 30% discount on Battery Rechargers, Battery Expansions, and Upgrade Resets!
