Worms HD available now on PSN (NA)
It’s a good thing we added it to our Games Database as Worms HD* has just burrowed its way on to the PSN.
The press release states that the game is available “now”, but with no access to a PS3 at the moment, we’re just going to have to take their word for it.
The last time we checked, it’s not currently Thursday – but this wouldn’t be the first time new PlayStation Store content has appeared outside the usual weekly window.
Worms HD on the PS3 is an expanded and “honed” edition for those of you thinking you’ve seen this nematoda before.
PS3 fans will receive:
” [...] retro-styled landscapes, a wide array of team voices, additional graphic features & effects, a much more responsive physics engine, 1080p support and four additional weapons including the much loved Holy Hand Grenade, Super Sheep and Concrete Donkey.”
Worms is an addictive turn-based game with a healthy dose of comedy and has been going since 1995. Team 17, the developers behind the entire series, are an independent UK developer and have religiously supported and updated the series over the years. If you have never played a Worms game before, you owe it to yourself to pick this up and see what all the fuss is about.
The downloadable game is available now for our American worm-lovers at the asking price of $12.99. We’re not sure if it’s popped up on the Canadian store yet so please let us know in the comments. Europeans can expect the game to pop up over Easter (or the period of time following the first fullÂ moon after the vernalÂ equinox) for â‚¬9.99 / Â£7.99 respectively.
*Depending on which release you read, the game is referred to as both Worms HD and the more pithy “Worms”.
