Worms W.M.D sneaks onto the Nintendo Switch this year

The Worms we all know and love, yes those ones, are coming to the Switch later this year in Worms W.M.D.

The latest in Team17’s turn-based strategy game series, W.M.D is, at least to this writer, one of the best Worms games in years.

Worms W.M.D for the Switch will feature all the campaign missions, levels, customisations and updates, including Liberation and Forts Mode.

It also gets some exclusive content, to help persuade those silly people (like me), who are wondering if they should double-dip or not. Here’s the new stuff coming to the Switch version:

  • A new theme set in Space
  • New Mushroom and Tree forts
  • New customisations including three new outfits, and three new gravestones to mourn the passing of your pals

Support for single Joy-Con play, local wireless multiplayer as well as local and online multiplayer, out and about, is all there.

You can play Worms W.M.D on PS4, Xbox One and PC right now. The Switch version will launch in “Q4 2017″… Worms at Christmas anyone?

  1. Out of interest, what is it that makes W.M.D. one of the best in a while? I played them all (bar World Party) up until Worms 3D and haven’t palyed a new one since. I always had fond memories of the games though and am kidna tempted by ti on the XBOne.

    1. Hey. Thanks for your comment.

      I think it’s the closest we’ve come to Worms Armageddon, (the best one!), in terms of the weapon balancing and selection of them, the variety of content, and perhaps most importantly, the physics, which are directly lifted from that classic game. The new crafting mechanic, vehicular combat and building interiors are great too.

      Everything works like it should.

      1. Awesome. The key for me there is the ‘everything works like it should’. The series has such a simple concept, and when it works well, it’s terrific fun. I’d agree that Armageddon is the best one too, so I may yet check this out.
