Team17 has announced that the latest game in the Worms series, Worms Battlegrounds, will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. The game will be one of the first titles to be self-published on Xbox One under the ID@Xbox program, and could launch as early as next month.
ID@Xbox (Independent Developers Publishing Program for Xbox One) is a new program which enables independent game developers of all sizes to produce and self-publish games digitally on Xbox One. Basically, it’s a means to get your game released on Xbox One without having to approach a separate publisher.
The Worms series has appeared on over 25 different systems since the first appearance of the turn-based strategy game in 1995. Not much is known about what the new game will entail, but hopefully it is similar in style to the earlier titles as the 3D versions in the series never quite seemed to hit the mark.
Look for more information on the game to be released in the coming weeks.
