As the release date for Worms W.M.D draws near – 23rd August 2016 – you can expect to see more and more news unfurling from one of Team17’s longest running titles. Last week we were treated to the news of the All Star Edition and the release date [read about that here] whilst today we’ve been given a brand new gameplay trailer which you can watch below…
Worms W.M.D is host to extensive single player and multiplayer modes. With the single player focusing on 20 training missions, 30 campaign missions and 10 challenges and the multiplayer being both local and online for up to six players.
Throughout the game, players will get to take part in turn-based annelid warfare across 6 beautiful themes: Countryside, Downtown, Frontier, Motherland, Rainforest and Orient. The landscapes themselves now feature stunning, detailed hand drawn art which showcases one of the new gameplay features: buildings.
Buildings are a fantastic new addition which offer a great tactical advantage to the classic Worms gameplay. Players can now enter buildings amongst the landscape and fire off shots from inside, but when the turn passes, their worm will be hidden inside. In addition to being the ideal place to hunker down, buildings are the perfect location to lay an ambush for your unsuspecting opponents. Stick down a Sentry Gun – then sit back and wait for the carnage to commence!
