Worms™ Reloaded launches today, 26th August 2010!

Highly anticipated PC title set to hit Steam like a Concrete Donkey– Valve also offering Holy Hand Grenades for Team Fortress 2 Soldier with purchase!

Since its announcement earlier this month, Worms TM Reloaded has become the talk of the internet, with thousands upon thousands of people professing their rediscovered love of a series that has been a significant part of their gaming lives. In fact, it is very hard to find a PC gamer that has not yet played a Worms TM title!

With a reach that spans generations, and a gameplay style that is both classic and fresh in equal measures, Worms TM Reloaded sports over 60 single-player missions, full team and game style customization, landscape editing tools including the ability to import images, HD visuals and all the best weapons from Worms TM series past and present.

Being based on Steam, Worms TM Reloaded also has an intuitive and satisfying multiplayer interface, meaning that even the most inexperienced PC user can find friends and fresh opponents to be on the receiving end of a grenade or bazooka within minutes. The mutual respect between Valve and Team17 also means that Team Fortress 2 gamers who either pre-ordered Worms TM Reloaded, or who purchase it before September 2nd 2010, can look forward to exclusive Holy Hand Grenades and a‘Worms TM -style’ army hat for their soldier in-game!

“It’s with tremendous satisfaction that we can finally release a PC Worms TM title after what seems like an eternity, particularly as we’re self-publishing it. This means the connection between our passionate community and the development team itself has never been closer”, said Martyn Brown, Business Development Director at Team17.

“Because of that, we’ll see discussion, support and development of the game going forward, with further additional content and interaction with our community, given the wide customization opportunities in the game.”
