Team17 has announced the new installment of Worms franchise, Worms Rumble.
Worms Rumble features a real-time combat for the first time in the series. The game will support up to 32 players at once in a giant battlefield where players can use weapons to fight each other.
Here’s the information shared on Steam:
Worms Rumble is Worms like you’ve never played it before, with intense, real-time, arena-based 32 player cross-platform combat. Get ready to rumble in Deathmatch or Last Worm Standing modes where you’re only ever a Holy Hand Grenade away from death!
Use a variety of fan-favourite weapons like the Bazooka and Shotgun plus all-new additions to the armoury to bring the pain to your invertebrate opponents as you climb the ranks. Customise your worm, take part in challenges and seasonal events and experiment with new ways to play in The Lab. This is Worms, reinvented.
