Ossett, Yorkshire, UK – Tuesday 11th May 2012 – Team17 is pleased to announce that the forthcoming release of Worms™ Revolution will expand on its award-winning gameplay with the inclusion of both dynamic water and physics objects.
The introduction of dynamic water within the game introduces new and unique hazards to players. Dynamic water features in an array of new weapons and utilities and it can also appear already on the landscape in matches. For example, dynamic water could appear as a deposit within some landscape that, once destroyed, releases the flowing torrent of destruction. Unsuspecting worms are swept across the landscape and those unfortunate enough to end the turn submerged take damage as they slowly drown in a watery grave.
Physics objects are destructible items that possess devastating effects. Interaction with these items allows players to plan fiendish strategies and devise new and cruel ways in which to defeat their opponents. The physics objects can have different properties when they explode. For example toxic items will disperse clouds of noxious gas when disturbed, causing damage to all worms in the immediate vicinity. Some will explode and cause flames to spew out, setting fire to the landscape and burning any nearby worms. Finally, some objects contain H2O and we know what trouble that can cause!
Worms™ Revolution is scheduled for a Q3 2012 release and will appear on PC and consoles.
