Worms Rumble launch stats revealed as player count approaches 1.5 million

Having launched last week on December 1st, Worms Rumble has clocked close to one and a half million players developer Team17 have confirmed.

Following the game’s release, the British studio have posted some interesting stats for their latest entry in the Worms series. They note that Worms Rumble has gathered more than 1.48 million players with close to a quarter of a million matches played.


Other statistics include 38.4 million worms deaths (R.I.P), 384,577 worms revived, and a whopping 5.17 billion points worth of damage dealt.

In our review of Worms Rumble, Gareth scored the manic multiplayer title a solid 7 out of 10. Here’s what he had to say:

Although purists may balk at Worms Rumble, I found Team17โ€™s reinvention to be a welcome change in direction for the series. Real-time action wrapped around the battle royale genre works a treat here when combined with the zany, explosive world of Worms, but in order to become a multiple mainstay it needs more depth both in terms of strategy and player progression.

Worms Rumble is currently available via PC on Steam as well as PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 with online crossplay enabled between all three platforms. Anyone with an active PlayStation Plus subscription can grab a free copy of the game throughout December. Worms Rumble is one of three games you can redeem in December via PS+ alongside Just Cause 4 and Rocket Arena.

So far we’ve been having great fun with Worms Rumble and the way it twists the series’ tactical 2D formula into an explosive multiplayer shooter.

  1. Those numbers sound big, but they’re not that great really.

    232k matches, with 32 players in a match? And 1.48m players? That makes… each player played about 5 matches. And somehow only managed to get 5 kills in each of those matches.

    And that’s only an average, ignoring the people who seem to be getting 30+ kills a match after playing hundreds of matches.
