Today marks the fourth anniversary of Team17′s first venture onto the App Store with Worms and to celebrate the UK studio has announced the forthcoming release of a brand new title: Worms 3. Including new graphics, worm classes, strategic playing cards and all new weapons, Worms 3 has been designed and developed exclusively for mobile platforms.
On iOS, Worms 2: Armageddon alone has amassed a frightening set of statistics. Did you know there have been over 120,000,000 matches, played totalling over 1,900 years of gameplay time. Now the chart-topping, award-winning, #1 turn-based strategy game is back: jam-packed with new features, Worms 3 will offer online gameplay in asynchronous multiplayer warfare through both ranked and friendly matches, as well as twenty seven single-player missions across four themes: Beach, Spooky, Farmyard and Sewer. Furthermore, players can enjoy multiplayer Forts or Deathmatch modes, or face a greater challenge with the increasingly difficult Bodycount single-player game.
New weapons such as Nora’s Virus, Black Hole Grenade, Canned Heat and the return of fan favourites such as the Old Lady, Homing Pigeon and Boggy B are met by a new, game-changing enhancement. Turn on the card mode and alter the start and end of each turn by the playing of strategic cards.
Exclusive to mobile, Worms 3 is due for a Q3 2013 release and will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via the App Store. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Worms 3 and other forthcoming titles from Team17.
