MicroVolts

Not sure where I heard about MicroVolts, but I'm glad I did, it's a Free to Play multiplayer Third Person Shooter. Which isn't a new prospect, but MicroVolts is different because you play as a Figurine, and unlike other games you actually spawn with an entire arsenal of weapons, so you are given every tool you need to deal with any situation, but so is everyone else, which makes for quite intense gameplay.

Being a figurine means that a lot of the maps are "rat" style, which means you're really small compared to your surroundings. But this allows for quite unique maps.

I'll give a quick mention to the Shop, which allows you to use Micro Points and Rock Tokens to buy new models of figurine, different items to improve different stats such as movement speed or health, and also replacement weapons for all of your stock weapons, which you can buy for a week or a month or so. Micro Points are free, and you start with about 20,000 of them which is quite a large amount, considering it's only about 2000 - 3000 of them to buy a more powerful weapon for a week, and every time you play, at the end of the round you gain Micro Points based on your score, even more if you're on the winning team. Which usually means hundreds per round if you try hard. Rock Tokens can be bought with real money to buy Rock Token items. (But it's not really worth it)

Here are some thumbnails of the maps to give you an idea, along with all of the gamemodes, and it even has a Zombie gamemode

And here is a good gameplay video of it.
