Team 17 have also announced Worms WMD, the next instalment of their hit franchise, for  Xbox One and PC in 2016. No love for Sony for some reason.

Worms WMD features a fresh, brand new look 2D cartoon-inspired worm as well as gorgeous hand drawn landscapes. For the first time ever players will be able to use exciting new vehicles and even enter buildings which will add new strategic elements of gameplay to the traditional wormy warfare.

Just in case there was a tiny bit of milk left in their cash cow, Team 17 have also announced Worms 4 for mobile devices, coming this August.

  1. Worms is definitely more about quantity over quality, the terrible version that came free with the Vita TV says it all. Armageddon was the best and now its on Steam its even better, hooray for old games on Steam!

  2. Another Worms game? Well knock me over with a feather. Are these games still selling? I remember playing this on the MegaDrive (or some old format console) with a bunch of mates in the 90s.

  3. Worms suckers me into each purchase with a promise of “this is the one”, then keeps me entertained for a while, only to disappoint on the multiplayer. One day they will sort that, probably, maybe…

  4. Seriously is there anyone left without a copy of a Worms game. Why don’t they do something with the other classics they created back in the day?
