Worms Reloaded Brings 2D Back To The PC

After a couple of failed attempts at making classic trajectory-based shooter Worms 3D on the PC, Team17 returns to its 2D PC roots with Worms Reloaded, due out August 26 on Steam.

Worms never needed a 3D version. It was perfect as it was and Team17 acknowledges that fact with next month's release of Worms Reloaded, the first 2D PC game in the series in a decade. Reloaded plumbs the series' storied history for content, with more than 45 weapons, 60 singleplayer missions, a full-featured map creator and a currency-based customisation system. All this plus high-definition 2D graphics, which you can sample in the screens below.

"Worms Reloaded has been a labour of love for the team given the legacy of 2D PC Worms titles such as Worms 2, Worms Armageddon etc. It has been almost 10 years since the last 2D game was released on personal computers", said Martyn Brown, iconic figure in the world of Worms and Business Development Director at Team17. "In bringing Worms Reloaded to PC, we've reintroduced so much of what gamers loved about the good old days, and it's fitting that it is also the first Worms game we've self-published since the early games. We are very much looking forward to supporting the game through the community on Steam as well as our own Facebook page."

Worms Reloaded is now available for pre-purchase through Steam, with 24 hours of early access and exclusive in-game items for folks willing to preorder what could very well be the ultimate Worms experience.


    BRILLIANT! Used to play Worms World Party with friends a ton. This bring backs memories.

    Awesome. I bought worms for Wii not long ago - was a fairly rushed port in the end, but it did the job. Think I might trade it and grab this bad boy when it comes out.

    It's great to see dev's realising that 3d ain't always what it's cracked up to be, and going back to what works. The results of the last 10 years of 3d experimentation have given us a pretty good idea what works and what doesn't.

    Pre-ordered it straight away, Finally they realize the best worms experience is done in 2d. I still regularly play WWP - its such an amazing game to play with mates, im really stoked they are still working on such an amazing addictive game

    There actually was one good 3D Worms game.
    It was called Hogs of War, on the PlayStation.

    As cool as it is to see a new worms, and as true as it is that it was never better than the old 2D games, tell me why I should get this and not simply play some Worms 2? I mean I don't mind them going back to their roots, but I think this game needs some more to it than simply upgraded graphics. I mean the map editor and everything were in the original. Hopefully they have found some new gameplay options as well.

    Holy ****! I'm so happy, this made my day. Seriously, this is the best gaming news in a long while. I've been playing EVERY worms game on every platform but they were never good since Worms World Party, the game i've clocked the most hours ever, with my friends. The description of the game is very promising, I can't wait!

    Can anyone plz tell me what price it will be in Australian stores? I.E: Game, JB hifi,EB games and so on.

    Worms for Life

    Sorry if i bore you but ive searched like 20 google pages and cant find anything except for the release date.
