Worms is one of those franchises that is loved by so many, but also overlooked by more than there should be. Team 17 are launching a new Worms title this year, called Worms W.M.D and this new trailer looks as charming, and friendship destroying as ever!
“For the first time ever players will be able to use exciting new vehicles, such as tanks and helicopters, and even enter buildings! These all add new strategic elements of gameplay to the traditional wormy warfare. You’ll be able to dive into the extensive single player modes or compete in crazy multiplayer with local couch co-op and online modes supporting up to 6 players with up to 8 worms each.”
Watch the worms take to the skies in helicopters, raining death upon their opponents. I can already imagine pilots losing control and banging off cliffs and jagged bits of terrain, seeing their turn go to waste in a sea of laughter!
I remember getting my first copy of Worms on the Sega Saturn in 1997. Alongside Duke Nukem 3D (which had a built in Deathtank). Good times! The turn based combat with friends and their uniquely named Worms, the explosive sheep, the banana bomb, the ninja ropes. It’s a series I visit every now and again, and a childhood favourite.
Worms W.M.D will be launching on PC, Xbox One & PlayStation 4 later this year.
