Love Humor with a bit of destruction? Me too and that’s why I’m excited Worms WMD has made its way to GeForce Now. The long running strategy series from Team 17 has arrived on NVIDIA’s GeForce Now platform for all SHIELD users to enjoy! Worms WMD pits teams of worms brimming with ‘tude against each other in no-holds-barred battles to the death. Using an arsenal of more than 80 weapons ranging from baseball bats to nukes, the worms battle for control of maps in explosive turn-based combat.
There have been 25 Worms games released since the original Worms debuted in 1995, with the last few focused on mobile platforms, new gameplay directions and 3D presentations. Worms WMD marks a very conscious effort by Team17 to return the series to it’s strategic roots pulling back from a mobile focus.
WMD is most comparable to 1999’s Worms Armageddon, featuring a similar 2D side-scrolling presentation with a hand-crafted, vivid visual treatment that simply fits the zany worm vs worm warfare. The level of destruction, however, is raised considerably thanks to it being 2017 with the debut of a slew of new weapons, vehicles and tactics you can use on the battlefield. You’ll need to direct your team of up to eight worms to victory by obliterating all opposition all from the map by doing things like dropping the classic Concrete Donkey on a group of worms’ heads or dropping the Holy Hand Grenade in their midst. New weapons include the Dodgy Phone Battery(Try this one in a group), Unwanted Present and OMG Strike(You’ll see, trust me).
Worms WMD is available in the GeForce NOW store for $20.09, which is 33% off the regular price of $29.99. This price is good through April 4, 2017 and includes unlimited streaming rights on SHIELD and a digital download key for Steam. The game is rated E10+ by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
