Worms™ Reloaded to launch on 26th August 2010

From humble beginnings, the original Worms TM titles took PC gaming to new levels of popularity and mass appeal. Selling in excess of 25 million copies over its 15 year lifespan, Worms TM has taken its wholly unique brand of addictive gameplay, hilarious humour and wild weaponry across almost every console possible, and on Thursday 26th August 2010 it will be returning to the format that made it most successful; the personal computer.

“Worms Reloaded has been a labour of love for the team given the legacy of 2D PC Worms TM titles such as Worms 2, Worms Armageddon etc. It has been almost 10 years since the last 2D game was released on personal computers”, said Martyn Brown, iconic figure in the world of Worms TM and Business Development Director at Team17.“In bringing Worms Reloaded to PC, we’ve reintroduced so much of what gamers loved about the good old days, and it’s fitting that it is also the first Worms game we’ve self-published since the early games. We are very much looking forward to supporting the game through the community on Steam as well as our own Facebook page.”

Indeed, while the most celebrated features of the series are present and correct, Worms TM Reloaded also sports a large amount of new additions to almost every facet of the gameplay experience. Over 60 single-player missions (including new Warzone Campaign and Bodycount Mode), a fully featured landscape creator, 45+ plus weapons spanning the entire Worms TM series and a huge currency based customization system - all wrapped up in HD quality visuals - means that Worms TM Reloaded will be a highly enjoyable experience, whether playing alone or with friends.

Worms TM fans will be able to pre-order Worms TM Reloaded from Thursday 29th July 2010, with bonuses including a 10% discount, 24 hours early access to the game and exclusive in-game items to enhance your chosen team. To pre-order Worms TM Reloaded, go to http://store.steampowered.com/app/22600.
