Worms: Ultimate Mayhem has been announced for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC via Steam. The digital title will be released later this year and promises “to be literally full to bursting with more content than you can shake a worm at!”

Developed by Team 17, Worms: Ultimate Mayhem is a souped-up, re-vamped, high definition reimagining of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem, bringing both games together in one incredibly over-stuffed, over-the-top package! Including all of the content from the original games, Worms: Ultimate Mayhem also brings a whole host of anarchic additions – more single player missions, more puzzles, more customization, more worms!

Team 17 Head of Design John Dennis voices his delight at bringing the 3D turn-based mayhem into the current generation:

“It’s been an absolute pleasure getting the chance to revisit two titles that we remember so fondly. In squeezing the entire content of both “Worms 3D” and “Worms 4: Mayhem” into one collector’s edition digital package, we’ve delivered a “best of the 3D Worms games” experience, complete with 60 single player missions, 12 graphical themes, 38 weapons, full online play for up to four players and literally more ways to customize your worm and game experience than we can count.”

“As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also taken the opportunity to add high-definition sparkle to the visuals and make a raft of improvements and extra content as suggested by fans of the original titles: from vastly improved camera functionality and voice-acted mission intro sequences, to all-new challenges and multiplayer maps. We’re very proud of the original games, and hope that in delivering this definitive version, fans of the original titles and players new to them will take the time to check out “Worms Ultimate Mayhem.”

Yahoooo! Sounds absolutely awesome. I know Ferry is a HUGE Worms fan, bet he is chomping at the bit to pick up this title upon its release!
