At the end of this year, Team 17 will release Battle Royale Worms Game: Worms Rumble, a radical reinvention of the publisher’s beloved franchise on PC, PS4, and PS5
While the series will retain many of the classic elements that fans have come to love over the past few years, there is one massive departure from the previous parts: Worms Rumble will feature real-time battles, for up to 32 players simultaneously. In order to accommodate this change, the movements of the creatures have been significantly sped-up. As a result, the game should have a pretty fast pace! Like other battle royale games, the title will feature daily challenges, seasonal events, and a plethora of different skins for players to customize their worm.
Team 17 has already confirmed that Worms Rumble will feature cross-play between their three versions of the game. The title will boast three modes: Deathmatch, Last Worm Standing, and Last Squad Standing. Deathmatch will see players competing for the most eliminations, while Last Worm Standing will follow a traditional battle royale structure, where dead means dead and the one who survives is the winner. Maps will also have restricted zones, where players will receive damage when they are in that zone. Finally, Last Squad Standing will feature ten teams of 3, and players will be able to revive downed teammates.
Of course, no Worms game would be complete without the franchise’s signature weapons, and players can expect to see a number of returning favorites. The Bazooka, Shotgun, and the Holy Hand Grenade have all been confirmed for Worms Rumble, thus far. The game will also feature some brand-new weapons, as well.
Overall, it seems like Worms Rumble will be a pretty big departure for the franchise, but it also feels like a franchise perfectly suited for the format. Longtime fans will have to get used to the new pace, but it’s clear that Team 17 is intent on maintaining the heart of the franchise. It will be interesting to see whether or not fans embrace the new direction when Worms Rumble arrives later this year on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Players can sign-up for the game’s PC beta right HERE.
