Maximum Games Opens a Major Can of Worms™

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – (May 13, 2013) – Video game publisher Maximum Games announced that the highly anticipated delivery of Worms™ Collection to retailers is confirmed for May 21, 2013. Developed by Team 17 Digital, Ltd., Worms Collection combines three well-known Worms titles in one package, and will include Worms™, Worms™ 2: Armageddon, and Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem, plus six additional DLC (Downloadable Content) packs.

“The original Worms is beloved classic to gamers the world over,” said Len Ciciretto, president of Maximum Games. “We are honored to bring Worms™ Collection to long-time fans and introduce it to an entire new generation of strategy gamers, as well.”

  • Worms™, the classic 2D strategy game that started it all, delivers an addictive mix of strategy and arcade-action that offers limitless offline and online entertainment for up to 4 players. It’s golden-age gaming at its comically violent best.
  • Worms™ 2: Armageddon pushes the Worms cartoon carnage into overdrive, offering stunning new visuals and an arsenal of apocalyptic arms. From Super Sheep, Napalm Strikes, and Earthquakes to the legendary Concrete Donkey, Worms™ 2: Armageddon is an exercise in extreme execution – and now includes five expansions previously sold separately.
  • Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem is a souped-up, re-vamped, high definition reimagining of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, bringing both games together in one incredibly over-stuffed, over-the-top package. Including all of the content from the original games, Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem also brings a whole host of anarchic additions: more single player missions, more puzzles, more customization – more worms!
Once available only by way of PlayStation ®Network and Microsoft Xbox Live ® Arcade, Worms™ Collection will now be available on both Xbox 360™ and PS3™. Worms™ Collection has received an E 10+ rating from the ESRB.
