More Worms? Yes please!

Team 17 the devel­op­ers behind the worms series announced today that we will get a HD revamp of Worms 3D and Worms 4: May­hem togeth­er in a down­load­able titled dubbed Worms: Ulti­mate May­hem. The title will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlaySta­tion Net­work, and on the PC through Steam. Team 17’s Head of Design John Den­nis had this to say in the press release about the down­load­able pack­age:
                “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 cus­tomize 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.”
This is great news for one of my favorite orig­i­nal Xbox titles com­ing to life once more in a great pack­age. The game will be released this fall and will def­i­nite­ly gar­ner much of my atten­tion despite the heavy hol­i­day sea­son approach­ing fast. I will now have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to dust off my Holy Hand Grenade and prep Super Sheep for flight against all the online strangers. The only thing miss­ing from this already great pack­age is Worms Forts: Under Siege. I would love to see a down­load­able, online ver­sion of this game in the future. Team 17, you had me at 3D, so would you kind­ly “shut up and take my mon­ey”.

Have your say
