There’s a new game in the Worms universe coming out just in time to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary. Worms Rumble is coming to PC, PS4, and PS5 in late 2020.
Team 17 revealed the first details for the game today. Worms Rumble will be the first game in the series to feature real-time combat and multi-platform cross-play. Up to 32 players are able to take part in matches in a range of arena maps, including a multi-leveled shopping mall complete with its own ballistic missile silo.
Registration is now open for players to participate in a closed beta on Steam. The beta begins on Wednesday, July 15 and runs through Monday July 20. The beta gives players their first chance to take part in the new game.
Worms Rumble will have ongoing content updates, including new arenas and customizations. “Players will be able to level up their Worm and progress through the ranks, earning new weapons skins and character customizations, accessories, and emotes as they go,” Team 17 says.
Today’s announcement also reveals some of the weapons making their way into Worms Rumble. The weapons at launch include a baseball bat, hand cannon, bazooka, assault rifle, and shotgun.
