Uh-oh: Team 17 unveils Worms Ultimate Mayhem

Brace yourself. Worms is back, as British developer Team 17 reveals plans for Worms Ultimate Mayhem, which promises to be a return to form for the franchise.

Taking the best bits of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, the new game promises to be an “over-stuffed, over-the-top package” for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The original games have been souped-up and re-vamped as well as reimagined in glorious high def.

John Dennis, Head of Design at Team 17 is “delighted” with the revelation:

It’s been an absolute pleasure getting the chance to revisit two titles that we remember so fondly. In squeezing the entire content of both “Worms 3D” and “Worms 4: Mayhem” into one collector’s edition digital package, we’ve delivered a “best of the 3D Worms games” experience, complete with 60 single-player missions, 12 graphical themes, 38 weapons, full online play for up to four players and literally more ways to customise your worm and game experience than we can count.

As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also taken the opportunity to add high-definition sparkle to the visuals and make a raft of improvements and extra content as suggested by fans of the original titles: from vastly improved camera functionality and voice-acted mission intro sequences, to all-new challenges and multiplayer maps. We’re very proud of the original games, and hope that in delivering this definitive version, fans of the original titles and players new to them will take the time to check out “Worms Ultimate Mayhem.”

Team 17 is promising a bunch of “anarchic” additions to Worms Ultimate Mayhem, including more single-player missions, more customisation, more puzzles and – of course, more worms.

This particular can of Worms Ultimate Mayhem will be opened later in 2011, and we’re expecting to hear plenty more as it gets closer.
