Update 3.8 for Worms Armageddon comes with quite a few new features. It adds extended scheme options that will allow players to alter gameplay by manipulating physics or choosing between a huge array of tweaks. These options are intended for experienced Worms players and you must have completed the Single Player mode and unlocked The Full Wormage to access them. The update also improves animations with “tweening” and adds a much-desired windowed mode, as well as plenty of fixes to the game. You will also be able to add AI-controlled teams to your online games, so there will be no problem if you don’t have enough players. Finally, Worms Armageddon localization has been improved and now it supports seven languages, including Finnish, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
In a statement given to press, Kevin Carthew, the creative director of developer Team 17, reflected on his history with the series. “Worms: Armageddon was among the first games I worked on; it’s incredible that members of the community are still delivering updates for it, and is a sure sign of its quality and the love that fans have for it,” he said.
Worms Armageddon’s 3.8 patch is currently available on Steam. Worms Rumble will release later this year on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
