Worms W.M.D. Preview

The Worms games have always been fun couch-competitive games. I spent hours playing Worms on the Dreamcast, and although I’ve dabbled in the franchise throughout the years, it’s been awhile since I’ve really dug into a game in the series. Hopefully that’s about to change with Worms W.M.D., coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.



For those unfamiliar, Worms is a turn-based strategy game where you must destroy your opponent’s army before they destroy you. The action takes place on a 2D environment and you have a wide arsenal of weapons and tools at your disposal. You must use the landscape to your advantage to hide your troops from harms way and also to position your characters in spots that give you a good angle to aim your weapons. The game is loaded with humor, zany items, crazy environments, and is just a ton of fun to play with friends.



New to the Switch version is the support for single Joy-Con play so you and a friend can immediately go at it. Local wireless multiplayer as well as local and online multiplayer modes will allow you to engage your enemies anywhere you may be. We can’t wait to cause some mayhem later this year!


Award-winning veteran games developer and international games label Team17 announced today that their hit turn-based strategy game Worms W.M.D will be invading Nintendo Switch™ later this year.

In Worms W.M.D for Nintendo Switch™, players will be able to feel the full power of all the game’s campaign missions, levels, customisations and updates, including Liberation and the fan favourite Forts Mode whether at home or on the go. And coming first to Nintendo Switch, a whole megaton more!

  • A brand new theme – Space!
  • New Mushroom and Tree forts
  • New customisations including three new outfits and three new gravestones to mourn the passing of your invertebrate pals

Worms W.M.D for Nintendo Switch™ includes support for single Joy-Con play, local wireless multiplayer as well as local and online multiplayer in hilarious all-out tactical worm warfare. So, wherever you are, grab your Concrete Donkeys, un-pin your Holy-Hand Grenades, and re-cape your Super Sheep as you prepare to rain hell on upon your enemies later this year!
