Worms W.M.D launch trailer

Lock up your sheep! Team 17’s Worms turns 21 this year, and to celebrate the launch of the latest in the franchise, Worms W.M.D, a new trailer has been released.

Promising ‘their most destructive game yet’, Worms W.M.D offers 30 objective-based campaign levels as well as local and online multiplayer madness, all digitally-painted in classic 2D.

New for this entry are buildings, vehicles, and the ability for players to craft and dismantle items on-the-go! The new crafting mechanic more than doubles the number of available items for you to destroy your opponents with, and the fact that one of these is called an ‘Angry Concrete Donkey’ certainly makes me want to try it. I’m just not sure that I’m ready to admit buying the original from a Computer Show 21 years ago, because that would make me very old.

Worms W.M.D is available now from the Xbox Store for £19.99.

Worms Battlegrounds from Team 17 Heading to Xbox One

worms battlegrounds

Team 17 who develop our favourite turn-based game of all time, Worms, will see its award-winning franchise make its debut on the next generation of consoles. Having seen it already appear on over twenty-five other platforms since its introduction back in 1995, this year will see the game launch on both the Xbox One and the PS4.

Worms Battlegrounds will be one of the first titles to be self-published on the Xbox One under the ID@Xbox program, of which Team17 is one of the ambassadors. We’re no stranger to the popularity of Worms having rated the recent, Worms: The Revolution Collection 9.5/10 which is plastered all over the game’s retail box art if you haven’t spotted it already?

Worms Battlegrounds is due for a 2014 release and will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. When an exact date has been announced, we’ll keep you posted.

US Retail Worms Collection Out May 21

worms collection us

Maximum Games are publishing Worms Collection in the US, and has shipped to retailers for the May 21st, 2013 launch date. Developed by Team 17, Worms Collection combines three well-known Worms titles in one package, and will include Worms, Worms 2: Armageddon, and Worms Ultimate Mayhem, plus six additional DLC packs. Worms Collection was made available in the UK last year.

Worms, the classic 2D strategy game that started it all, delivers an addictive mix of strategy and arcade-action that offers limitless offline and online entertainment for up to 4 players. It’s golden-age gaming at its comically violent best.

Worms 2: Armageddon pushes the Worms cartoon carnage into overdrive, offering stunning new visuals and an arsenal of apocalyptic arms. From Super Sheep, Napalm Strikes, and Earthquakes to the legendary Concrete Donkey, Worms™ 2: Armageddon is an exercise in extreme execution – and now includes five expansions previously sold separately.

Worms Ultimate Mayhem is a souped-up, re-vamped, high definition reimagining of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, bringing both games together in one incredibly over-stuffed, over-the-top package. Including all of the content from the original games, Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem also brings a whole host of anarchic additions: more single player missions, more puzzles, more customization – more worms!

You can read our review of Worms Collection from when it was released in the UK last year, not to be mistaken for the recent UK release of Worms The Revolution Collection, which we are assuming to see a US launch later in the year? (maybe)
