for the upcoming Worms W.M.D.
, as well as celebrating their 25th anniversary, developer Team17 has revealed two new weapons for the turn-based worm combat game as well as a handful of screenshots.Worms W.M.D.
aims to return to the 2D cartoon-inspired worms that made the series memorable in the past, after straying from the formula in 3D titles like Worms: Ultimate Mayhem
The game appears to have no shortage of Worms'

titles. It seems to be drawing everything on the map toward it, as opposed to blowing everything up. Have a look for yourself here:
There's still no solid release date, but Worms W.M.D.
is set to release "later this year."
