Worms Ultimate Mayhem squirms onto Steam Sept. 28


The PC version of Worms Ultimate Mayhem will reach Steam on September 28, a one-week delay from its previous pronouncement of war. Launch dates for operations on the Xbox 360 and PS3 are still to be determined.

Along with today's debut delay announcement, Team 17 brought out a new "customization" trailer. The clip features some of the 100 fashion items available for the Worms, and shows off the "weapon factory," which allows players to customize how some items in their arsenal deliver sweet, wormy death.

Release date for PC version on Steam also updated

London, UK – 19th September, 2011 – Ministers of madness Team 17 today announce that their much anticipated collection of enhanced 3D chaos, Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem, will now be making its anarchic arrival on Steam for PC on Wednesday 28th September 2011, wriggling back one week later than originally announced. Team 17 have today also released another helping of Worms™ based video-madness, with a look into just how ludicrously customisable Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem really is, in their brand new 'Customisation' trailer.

Worms™ fans the world over have always loved making the pink little blighters their own, be it with hats, speech banks, or just plain naming them silly things. Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem ups the ante by providing more options than ever before, with well over 100 ridiculous customisation items. Players can customize what their worms wear, with a huge selection of silly hats, hands, gloves, moustaches and glasses available, and also what gravestones and speech banks the worms have. The game modes are also highly adjustable, enabling players to tailor the individual game settings to their own tastes. There is also a 'Wormpot' feature, which allows even further game style adjustments, with over 1,000,000 possible combinations! Players can even create their very own Machiavellian weapon of mass destruction in the 'Weapon Factory'; decide how it is launched, what effect it has and even what it looks like. There is very little you can't customize in Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem!

Worms™ fans can still pre-order Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem for PC from Steam now, with pre-purchase bonuses including a 10% discount on the game, a special 4-Pack offer with a 25% saving, and also a discounted 'bundle deal' with Worms™ Reloaded.

Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem will be released for PC from Steam™ on Wednesday 28th September 2011. The final release dates for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 versions are still to be confirmed.
