Have you picked up your free copy of Worms Battleground from Games with Gold yet? Awesome, well Team 17 have just announced a new expansion that is available now!
The Alien Invasion pack is available to download now for Xbox One via the Xbox Games Store for just £3.99 / $4.99 / 4,99 € with a 20% discount available for Xbox Live Gold members.
The Worms Battlegrounds Alien Invasion DLC features an all new Bodycount game mode in which you pick your two favourite classes of worm and play as FIB agents fighting off wave after wave of Alien, there are also 10 new Deathmatch missions where you’ll take control of the Alien Invaders and fight against those pesky invertebrate FIB agents who are hunting you down and trying to destroy your UFO.
Extra treats include
5 Alien themed hats
5 Alien themed gravestones
2 Alien themed speechbanks
& 5 re-imagined weapons to use in the Alien Invasions modes. Battle with the Plasma Blaster, Energy Orb, Ray Gun, Brightsaber and Precision Droid. Plus watch as all strike weapons are now dropped by a UFO. Achievement hunters can also work to grab the extra 5 achievements available.
Xbox have lifted the lid on December’s Games with Gold. Xbox One owners will get a retail game in the shape of Worms battlegrounds – the sequel to the popular death dealing turn based game in which players attempt to blow up each other’s team of Worm commandos.
Xbox 360 get to take to the icy slopes of SSX, a return to the former glory of the franchise that had slipped somewhat since the days of tricky but first 360 owners will need to put on their thinking games to solve the mystery of The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief.
Again the program delivers a mixed bag of games but for a change I don’t own the games on offer so I’m pretty happy, after all, I pay for Gold to play online – any extra games is a bonus!
