I loves me some Worms.
The series, much like N+, is unique in that you can have an absolute blast playing even if your endeavors amount to consistent and total failure. Truly, it’s a testament to Team 17′s remarkable game design vision.
The lastest series entry, Worms Reloaded, is slated to be released on August 26th on the platform that started the insanity: the PC. The skinny!
“Worms Reloaded has been a labour of love for the team given the legacy of 2D PC Worms™ titles such as Worms 2, Worms Armageddon etc. It has been almost 10 years since the last 2D game was released on personal computers”, said Martyn Brown, iconic figure in the world of Worms™ and Business Development Director at Team17. “In bringing Worms Reloaded to PC, we’ve reintroduced so much of what gamers loved about the good old days, and it’s fitting that it is also the first Worms game we’ve self-published since the early games. We are very much looking forward to supporting the game through the community on Steam as well as our own Facebook page.”
Worms Reloaded will feature over 60 single-player missions (including new Warzone Campaign and Bodycount Mode), a fully featured landscape creator, 45+ plus weapons spanning the entire Worms series, and a currency-based customization system. It also sports cutesy high-definition 2D graphics.
Diehards that pre-order Worms Reloaded will receive several bonuses: a 10% discount, 24 hours early access to the game, and exclusive in-game items to enhance your chosen team. To pre-order Worms Reloaded, point your browser toward http://store.steampowered.com/app/22600.
