Worms W.M.D. Shellshocks Your Switch This Thanksgiving

Team 17 has announced today that Worms W.M.D. is releasing for the Switch on November 23, 2017. I first became a fan of the series way back on the Dreamcast where I soon learned how hilarious and deviously fun it could be to squish your enemies (friends) into submission. Who knew turn-based carnage could be so addictive?

The game will feature local and online multiplayer, but get this – up to 6 can play with just 1-4 controllers. Pass them around if need be! A few other tidbits were answered on Twitter from the development team. The game will weigh in at 4.6 GB and cost $29.99. It will not feature cross-platform support with other systems, but it does support local (and online) wireless multiplayer for those who have friends with a copy of the game on Switch. We’re looking forward to it!



Award-winning veteran games developer and international games label Team17 today announced that their hit turn-based strategy Worms W.M.D will be launching onto Nintendo Switch™ on 23rd November.

With a gorgeous, hand-drawn 2D look, brand new weapons, the introduction of crafting, vehicles and buildings, plus the return of some much-loved classic weapons and gameplay, Worms W.M.D is the best worms experience ever – now with HD Rumble and playable anywhere!

Engage in local multiplayer with your friends either on one Nintendo Switch™ or multiple Nintendo Switch™ consoles wirelessly. Take advantage of a variety of different controller options – up to four players can play using a mixture of either individual Joy-Con™ controllers or the Pro Controller. If you want to extend the fun to a six-player battle, then simply pass the controller!

There’s online multiplayer too and a whole host of single player content including the Liberation and Forts Mode updates plus content from the All-Stars pack which features a blockbuster line-up of guest stars from hit games such as Rocket League, Goat Simulator, The Escapists and Yooka-Laylee.

Worms W.M.D will also feature new content coming first to Nintendo Switch™:

  • A brand new space theme, Wormhole
  • New Mushroom and Tree forts
  • Three new hats
  • Three new gravestones

Worms W.M.D will be available to download for Nintendo Switch™ via the Nintendo eShop for £19.99 / 29,99€ / $29.99 on the 23rd November.
