In case you haven’t heard of Worms W.M.D. before it is a game developed by Team17, the same people behind the Escapists games. You can find our review on the second Escapists game here. Worms W.M.D. is already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, as well as Linux, and now it’s releasing on the Nintendo Switch sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. When the game launches on Switch it will come with everything you already know and love about the Worms game, but in addition there is a whole ton of content that is planned to be released on Nintendo’s newest console before anywhere else. These features will eventually come to other platforms, but it is not clear how long after that would be. The features that are coming to Switch first include a new space theme, new forts, new customizations, and other things have been hinted at as well. Watch the trailer Team17 released below.

Worms W.M.D. is a turn based strategy game that differs from most others in its genre. The game is done in a hand-drawn 2D art style and centers around the combat between Worms. The Worms have a variety of different weapons which can affect the environment around them as well as their fellow invertebrates. Team17 says there will be new weapons when the game releases on the new platform, but don’t worry as all the weapons you love will still be there. Along with new weapons comes the introduction of crafting, vehicles, and buildings. The game seems to be planning to take advantage of the Switches’ two Joy-Con controllers for local multiplayer. Although online multiplayer will be just as functional as ever. We wish there was more to say, but at this point there is not much more we know, but what we do know is that Team17 is promising beloved Worms gameplay with a ton of new features on the Nintendo Switch. Despite not much further information yet, to us, this sounds awesome, and we’re excited to see how it turns out.
