Team 17, the developer behind http://www.trueachievements.com/Worms-xbox-360.htm
, has revealed today that they are currently working on Worms Ultimate Mayhem
for release on the Xbox LIVE Arcade.Worms Ultimate Mayhem
will bring together both Worms 3D
and Worms 4: Mayhem
in HD. While the game will include all of the original content from the two Worms
titles, it will also include a host of new content, from additional single player missions to additional customization options. In fact, Team 17 Head of Design John Dennis, stated the game would come with "60 single-player missions, 12 graphical themes, 38 weapons, full online play for up to four players and literally more ways to customize your worm and game experience than we can count".
Dennis also had more to say about the title:
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also taken the opportunity to add high-definition sparkle to the visuals and make a raft of improvements and extra content as suggested by fans of the original titles: from vastly improved camera functionality and voice-acted mission intro sequences, to all-new challenges and multiplayer maps. We’re very proud of the original games, and hope that in delivering this definitive version, fans of the original titles and players new to them will take the time to check out Worms Ultimate Mayhem. Worms Ultimate Mayhem
will be released "later in 2011".
