Martyn Brown, Business Development Director at Team17, says;“We’re delighted to finally bring Worms 2: Armageddon to PSN and we’re sure it’ll provide a huge hit with fans of the game, especially with the great new customisation options and the addition of some new and classic weaponry for this platform. We’ve taken time to really polish this edition and it looks fantastic in 1080p and as usual, provides endless hours of mayhem on or offline.”
