Worms 2: Armageddon DLC hits Xbox Live, PSN today

Worms 2: Armageddon has gotten not one or two but three brand new content packs announced for the game on XBLA and PSN. The "Puzzle Pack" is available today on Xbox Live, and brings 20 new single-player puzzle missions, five new achievements, and some new cosmetic content onto your console for 320 Microsoft Points ($4).

Additionally, the PSN version has gained the "Retro Pack," with 20 more single-player missions and new speech banks and other content, and the "Time Attack Pack," with even more race missions to play through. Some of that content was presumably already in the Xbox DLC that arrived last month, so now PSN players can enjoy it as well, at a price of $4.99 each (with extra discounts for PlayStation Plus members).

All three packs are available right now, and Team 17 is promising more new content packs to come. You can browse through screenshots of all the new content below. Happy wormin'!
