Worms Battlegrounds Coming To Xbox One and PS4

Worms Battlegrounds Coming To Xbox One and PS4

Team 17 announced that they will be bringing their long-running Worms series to PS4 and Xbox One.  The series is making its first move to next-gen, and will be one of the first titles to use Microsoft’s new self-publishing service ID@Xbox.

A depressingly low number of details has been released on the game.  We have a logo, and we know that the title will release sometime this year.  That’s about it.  Worms has always been a multiplayer-focused title, so it will be interesting to see what direction they take the franchise, and what they mean by Battlegrounds?  Will this be a new 3D title, or will it mark a return to their 2D roots?  More importantly, could we finally see a real-time Worms game?

If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how Team 17 feels about the ID@Xbox initiative.  Developers seemed tentatively optimistic about the program when it was announced, so we will see what happens.

A frequent Top 10 list writer and uber SNES fan, Blake can still to this day be found playing Final Fantasy VI on occasion, even though it is probably bad for his health at this point (we’re not sure he knows there are actually other games out there). When not writing, editing or gaming, Blake enjoys bothering people with his guitar, drinking more than is safe and talking about this totally crazy weather. Blake is also very involved in the Game Informer community, has a sick Minecraft world he would love to show you.
