After Microsoft dropped the news this morning of a mysterious new Worms game for the Xbox One, developer Team 17 has announced Worms Battlegrounds for the XB1 and PS4. Team 17 makes a special mention of its participation...
Out of all the games I feel bad about missing last year, Brothers - A Tale of Two Sonshas got to rank among the top of the list. It shouldn't take this much convincing to get me to play something I'm fairly sure I will enjoy, but that's the way of the world. Now I'll have my chance: the game joins the Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus members this week.
Look for Brothers as well as Worms: Battle Islands for PSP / PS Vita, another free game for subscribers, on PlayStation Network once the store update goes live tomorrow. Sorry, Worms, but I feel a whole lot less awful about not playing you.
I think that Team 17 needs some help. Some dastardly villain has clearly locked the developer up and abandoned them, because less than a year after releasing the excellent Worms Revolution, the invertebrate-obsessed studio has only gone and made Worms Clan Wars, which is not only a proper, fully fledged continuation of the venerable series, but a high point for the franchise.
Perhaps the very worms they so admire have risen up and forced them into eternal servitude, and if this is the case, we should all get out our nicest stationary and write a strongly worded letter to these slithering, slimy dictators and demand that they give Team 17 a break. It would be well deserved, too, as they've already succeeded in the challenge of improving on a formula that was arguably perfected over a decade ago.

For the love of god, somebody get me a 3DS. I made the unfortunate mistake of backing the wrong Nintendo console, grabbing a Wii U late last year, when I should have put my eggs in the portable basket. Now I'm not able to play the fantastic Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, and I feel absolutely terrible.
What could be better than worms and ice cream? How about worms, ice cream and a arsenal of crazy weapons that you can blow up your friends with. Team17 has released the first piece of DLC for Worms Revolution, the Funfai...
One cannot help but wonder, after so many years of senseless violence and bloodshed, what is it that makes worms so murderous? I guess that if you lived in the dirt, looked a bit gross, and were so often at the mercy of a trowel or a spade, you'd probably be a bit angry too.
The endless cycle of wormicide continues in Worms Revolution -- a misnomer if ever I've heard one. Yes, it's pretty much still the same old Worms, but in the best way possible. Honestly, I'm glad. We don't really need another Worms 3D.
Worms Revolution is some two weeks away from being released, and Don Keystone is attempting to, for the last time, explain Team17's strategy game to us with his oh-so-seductive voice in a new gameplay video.
The 2D game...
Since the mid-'90s, I've been unable to look at the common garden worm without wondering "How many kills does it have?" or "Does it have a shotgun?" I blame Team17 for this entirely; their military-minded, wriggly warriors make these animals seem ferocious.
Unfortunately, my love of these warmongering creatures has diminished over the years. The awkward switch to 3D left nothing but disappointment in its wake, and my interest has yet to be recaptured by the later iterations. My current wormless existence is about to get shook up, however, as original Worms creator Andy Davidson and Team17 have been hard at work making the latest title, Worms Revolution, forward-looking yet still able to inspire a great deal of nostalgia.
In June, Casey got to take on Davidson himself at a round in Revolution, so I thought I'd check out the title's single-player offerings; there's quite a bit.
These Worms Revolution videos have been causing quite the chuckle to rise up from my belly, or wherever my chuckles actually come from -- I don't know, I'm no scientist. The latest one is a Public Service Announcement m...
Those wacky Worms are on their way to becoming socially acceptable. Team 17 has announced that a closed beta test for the upcoming Facebook version of their classic artillery dueling title, Worms, has begun. Fans of the aggr...
When I'm digging holes in my garden for completely normal and not in the least bit criminal reasons, I often see worms. They are always wearing the latest fashions and spouting hilarious quips. It makes gardening a delight. ...
Worms has always brought out the worst in me. I become a vicious, hateful, overly-competitive, incredibly angry arsehole. I love it. This has followed me through the entire series, even the ones that weren't particularly goo...
The history of the Worms franchise is a long and storied one, spanning all the way back to the very early days of gaming. In an interview with Andy Davidson, the main creator of the original Worms game, I was given insight into exactly why the series has been such a lasting success. I also got an extensive hands-on look at the newest iteration being brought forth by Team17 for consoles and PC.
With Andy back on the team for Worms: Revolution and a new 3D engine, this latest title looks to offer fans the same excellent strategic 2D gameplay the series is known for while also appealing to new players with a great, polished look and entertaining water physics that add to the strategy and humor of Worms.
Team 17 revealed information on a new class system being implemented for the upcoming Worms Reloaded, expected to hit PCs and consoles later this year. Players will be able to build their four-man teams using worms with class...
