From humble beginnings, the original Worms™ titles took PC gaming to new levels of popularity and mass appeal. Selling in excess of 25 million copies over its 15 year lifespan, Worms™ has taken its wholly unique brand of addictive gameplay, hilarious humour and wild weaponry across almost every console possible, and on Thursday 26th August 2010 it will be returning to the format that made it most successful; the personal computer.
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, weve reintroduced so much of what gamers loved about the good old days, and its fitting that it is also the first Worms game weve 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.
Indeed, while the most celebrated features of the series are present and correct, Worms™ Reloaded also sports a large amount of new additions to almost every facet of the gameplay experience. 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 huge currency based customization system - all wrapped up in HD quality visuals - means that Worms™ Reloaded will be a highly enjoyable experience, whether playing alone or with friends.
