[Update #2]: Worms Rumble has now landed onto PC and PlayStation alongside pretty solid reviews.

[Update]: Worms Rumble is set to launch this December 1, 2020.

In a bit of a strange departure from its strategy roots, the upcoming Worms Rumble will be a 32-player, real-time action game with plenty of weapons and customization options to mess around with. When it comes to the game modes themselves, Worms Rumble will feature the fairly standard Deathmatch and Last Worm Standing modes, as well as its very own Battle Royale variant!

If you're wondering what all of this madness looks like in gameplay terms, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. Have a look, it's certainly an unexpected one:

To be perfectly honest, I'm not exactly sure what to think about Worms Rumble. On one hand, I have absolutely no problem with the team branching out from strategy games and trying something new, because you never really know what kind of wacky and creative stuff they might be capable off. On the other hand, I can't help but feel like creating yet another fairly standard action-shooter is just going to end up with nobody being satisfied.

Whatever the case may be, we'll find out later this year as Worms Rumble is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and 5 in late 2020 with full cross-play support. You can learn more about Worms Rumble, as well as follow any further announcements, over at the official website.
