Worms cover

It must be difficult for a franchise like Worms to stay fresh. There’s only so much you can do with the “invertebrate combat” genre. The upcoming Worms W.M.D is employing a novel hook: guest characters. Team 17 have just released some videos detailing the expansive roster of guest stars that will make an appearance, and it looks goofy as hell.

The trailer shows off guest appearances and content (including weapons, masks and levels) from Unturned, Payday 2, The Escapists, Yooka-Laylee, Rocket League, Broforce and Saints Row IV.  There’s even some Goat Simulator content, but Goat Simulator somehow manages to find its way into everything after a while. There’s also exclusive content for the Xbox One and Steam versions. Xbox gamers get masks and weapons from Rare games, while the Steam version has Team Fortress 2 content. There’s also a trailer for the GoG version, but it unfortunately doesn’t have exclusive Witcher content.

These content packs are available with pre-orders of Worms W.M.D, which launches for PC, PS4 and XBO on 23 August.
