Team17 has announced Worms WMD, a new artillery strategy game in development for PC and Xbox One.
“2015 is a special year for us as it marks both Worms 20th birthday and Team17’s 25th anniversary. Moving into 2016, dubbed ‘The year of the Worm’, will mark the start of the celebrations of 21 Years of Worms,” said Team17’s Marketing Director, Mickey Torode.
The game promises to feature a “fresh, brand new look 2D cartoon-inspired worm as well as gorgeous hand drawn landscapes and for the very first time players will have access to “new vehicles, enter buildings which will add new strategic elements of gameplay to the traditional wormy warfare.”
More will be revealed at this year’s Gamescom, which will give us an early look at the game.
The developer also revealed Worms 4, “the definitive handheld Worms experience featuring an all new enriched look and improved design for mobile featuring smaller landscapes, smaller teams and shorter match lengths making action packed battles easily doable whilst on the go.
Players will be able to take part in turn-based synchronous online multiplayer matches played out in real time, battle their way through 80 single player missions, collect over a hundred weapon upgrades and duel across 5 different themes.
Worms 4 is due for release on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in August 2015.
Worms WMD will be available for PC & Xbox One in 2016.
