Worms. You know those squishy things that birds love to eat? We are not talking about those kind of worms. We are talking about the ones that carry guns, use grappling hooks and throw exploding sheep at other worms. Ready? MORTAL WORMBAT!
London, UK – 27thJuly, 2011– Annelid aficionados Team 17 today announced the first details ofWorms Ultimate Mayhem, their forthcoming outing of digital destruction.
Worms Ultimate Mayhemis a souped-up, re-vamped, high definition reimagining ofWorms 3DandWorms 4: Mayhem, bringing both games together in one incredibly over-stuffed, over-the-top package for Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE, for PlayStation3 from PlayStationNetwork, and also for PC from Steam. Including all of the content from the original games,Worms Ultimate Mayhemalso brings a whole host of anarchic additions – more single player missions, more puzzles, more customisation, more worms!
Team 17 Head of Design John Dennis voices his delight at bringing the 3D turn-based mayhem into the current generation:
“It’s been an absolute pleasure getting the chance to revisit two titles that we remember so fondly. In squeezing the entire content of both “Worms 3D” and “Worms 4: Mayhem” into one collector’s edition digital package, we’ve delivered a “best of the 3D Worms games” experience, complete with 60 single-player missions, 12 graphical themes, 38 weapons, full online play for up to four players and literally more ways to customise your worm and game experience than we can count.”
“As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also taken the opportunity to add high-definition sparkle to the visuals and make a raft of improvements and extra content as suggested by fans of the original titles: from vastly improved camera functionality and voice-acted mission intro sequences, to all-new challenges and multiplayer maps. We’re very proud of the original games, and hope that in delivering this definitive version, fans of the original titles and players new to them will take the time to check out “Worms Ultimate Mayhem.“
Worms Ultimate Mayhemwill be released later in 2011, literally full to bursting with more content than you can shake a worm at!
Time to sharpen those worm killing skills.
