Worms Battlegrounds release date announced

Worms Battlegrounds

Team17 have announced their latest title, Worms Battlegrounds, will arrive on PS4 in just two weeks time.

Battlegrounds, which is only available on next-gen systems, is set for release both digitally and at retail. May 30th is the date for EU gamers’ diaries, whilst the North American launch is on June 3rd. Curiously, the boxed product will only be available at “certain retailers”; exactly where though, has not been revealed.

Integration of the DualShock 4‘s touchpad and lightbar has been confirmed, alongside a companion website for stat-tracking (on the Xbox One version, this will be done through SmartGlass). This latest Worms title – a series which debuted on the PlayStation back in 1995 – features single-player missions, time attack missions and multiplayer deathmatch. The 1080p, 60fps action takes place across five different landscapes, comprising: Inca, Viking, Feudal Japan, Industrial Revolution and Prehistoric.

Let us know in the comments if you’re looking forward to a next-gen Worms, after checking out the new trailer:
