Team17 has announced a new Worms game for 2020. The trailer accompanying the tweeted announcement doesn’t reveal much of the new title’s gameplay, but it looks like it’s guaranteed to remain violent and bombastic.
The trailer starts with snippets of classic past Worms games and ends with a worm dropping from the sky, smashing the TV playing the snippets, and then getting blown up. Team17 stated, “New Worms, new ways to play,” which seems to imply major gameplay changes, but we’ll have to wait to find out. It also remains to be seen if the new Worms game will be in 2D or 3D.
The last Worms game, released in 2016, was 2D. Titled Worms W.M.D., the game resembled the gameplay of Worms Armageddon and introduced vehicles like tanks and other landscape items, like buildings worms can crawl into for safety. However, elements in previous games, like classes and water physics, were removed.
You can read GameSpot’s full review of Worms W.M.D. Our reviewer, Jason D’Aprile, stated, “W.M.D. is easily the best game in the Worms series in several years. It stays true to the 2D, animated roots of the ’90s games while adding enough new features to keep it feeling fresh and relevant. The relatively simple gameplay is overflowing with finesse and strategy, the presentation is fantastic, and offline or on, Worms is just incredibly fun.”
