[Update]: A brand new Worms game has now been announced - Worms 2020.

Team17 has created a plethora of Worms games over the years, but none of them have ever come even close to sparking the same level of excitement within me as the old school classic - Worms: Armageddon. There is just something timeless about a "simple" 2D game where hordes of suicidal worms throw everything and anything at each other, often with completely ridiculous and unintended results.

If you share a similar sort of viewpoint you'll be glad to hear that Worms W.M.D, in many ways a new and improved version of Worms: Armageddon, has been released for the PC and consoles and mere few hours ago. Here's the completely cheesy launch trailer to clue you in on what exactly Worms W.M.D is all about:


I haven't personally given it a try just yet, but I did check out a couple of the reviews online, and thankfully they paint a rather pretty picture. While there are some niggling little annoyance here and there, as is tradition in the Worms series, the actual gameplay does indeed seem to be an improved version of Armageddon. 

The graphics are nicer, the physics are quite robust, there's plenty of new and classic weapons to blow your opponents away with, and most interestingly, there's now a couple of vehicles (such as tanks and mechs) to further add on to the chaos. If all of this has now piqued your interest, you can learn more about Worms W.M.D by heading over to Steam, the developers have done a great job outlining all of the features and differences.
