Team 17 has announced that Worms Battlegrounds will release for the PlayStation 4 on May 30th in Europe and June 3rd in North America. This will be a digital-only title in North America for $24.99, with Europeans getting a digital and retail (at select retailers) release.
Calling it the “biggest and best Worms game to date,” here’s a gameplay trailer for Battlegrounds that walks you through this upcoming Worms experience:
If you don’t feel like watching the video, here’s a handy list of things you can expect in the game:
- Worms Battlegrounds’ single player campaign features 25 story missions and 10 “Worm-Ops” time-attack missions, which are set across five environments (Inca, Viking, Feudal Japan and Industrial Revolution) with new day-to-night lighting transitions.
- Multi-BAFTA award winning writer Dean Wilkinson provides the script for the single player story campaign, which is voiced Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd).
- Local and online multiplayer battles support up to four players. Choose from two different game modes: Deathmatch, Forts and Classic and either predefined or customized game settings.
- Multiplayer clan support is included, where you can take part in league matches to earn community points. One feature with clans is that, if you’re in the same clan with someone else, you can play controlling the same team (each person controls two worms).
- There’s a Landscape Editor, allowing you to create your own maps, which you can then challenge your friends on.
- Includes 65 weapons and utilities, including 10 new items: the Mega Mortar, Gravedigger, Winged Monkey, Oxygen, Worm Charm, Bovine Blitz, Whoopsie Cushion, Teleport Gun, Aqua Pack and The Equaliser.
- DualShock 4’s touch pad is used for weapon select through swipe gestures, allowing you to assign up to four weapons to four different directions.
- The DualShock 4’s light bar will glow red for attacks and explosions, blue when your worm is submerged in water, and green to indicate that your worm is poisoned.
- 1080p/60fps gameplay.
- Over 200 individual customisation items for the worms.
