EA Unveils a Voyage Through The Human Body With MicroBot
Written Monday, October 18, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
EA is bringing its own fantastic voyage through the human body to the Xbox Live Arcade next year, with MicroBots, in which you control one of the titular microscopic ships on a mission to destroy a biotechnological infestation.
Invented by MicroHexon, the MicroBot is capable of being injected into the human bloodstream to combat and eliminate disease and infection at a cellular level. However, as tends to be the case with technology, something has gone wrong, causing nanomachines to bond with diseased cells and begin multiplying at an alarming rate.
That's where you come in. Piloting a prototype MicroBot, you have to seek and destroy the damaging infection before it eats up its human host from the inside out. That's gotta hurt.
Travelling through fluids (steady on), to hearts, lungs, brain, down veins and arteries, there'll be hazards to overcome and 20 pieces of upgradable microtechnology to discover and use to customise your MicroBot with new weapons, defences and special abilities.
MicroBots will also boast drop-in/drop-out co-operative play where you'll be able to simultaneously customise your MicroBots. MicroBots is due out in winter 2011. Check out the teaser trailer and six screens in the gallery.
