Fire off the cannons or whatever the weapons in Worms are! Worms is finally releasing during the week of GDC on March 7, 2007 at 1:00 A.M. PST for 800 Microsoft Points. For the full interview I did with Martyn “Spadge” Brown on the certification issues this game suffered and more click here. Here are the features of the game:

  • A mix of strategy and arcade action that, although simple to understand, contains real depth and massive replayability
  • Turn-based multiplayer action for up to four players locally or over Xbox Live
  • An assortment of game options:
    • Landscape on which to do battle
    • Turn and round times
    • Starting weapon arsenal for each team
  • Three detailed tutorials to introduce the mechanics to first-time players
  • Twenty increasingly difficult single-player challenges
  • Three graphical themes for play
  • A random landscape generator to ensure that no two landscapes are ever the same
  • Twenty-two weapons and utilities to deploy against your enemies
  • Many customizable elements, including what worms and teams are named, what worms say, and which gravestone they have when they die
  • High-definition visuals and many graphical improvements throughout the game
  • Twelve achievements
  • Weekly, monthly and overall leaderboards

Now it is time to complain when the downloadable content releases! That will be the next issue of complaints for Xbox Live Arcade I bet.
