Subscribers to the PlayStation initiative will get the latest instalment, the first real-time action Worms title, for free during December.
Wednesday, 25th November 2020 – Team17 and Sony Interactive Entertainment are today announcing that Worms Rumble, the latest instalment in the long-running and award-winning Worms franchise, will be free on PlayStation Plus during December on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. The news means that in just one week, players across both PlayStation platforms will be able to fight it out across the game’s urban arenas alongside – and against – those on Steam in up to 32-player, real-time action, thanks to its crossplay functionality.
Plus, there’s a new PlayStation trailer right here:
There’s still time for Steam players to take advantage of preordering Worms Rumble, and gain access to the ‘New Challenger’ content pack, featuring exclusive cosmetic items: the ‘New Challenger’ Outfit; Worms Rumble beanie; Worms Rumble baseball bat skin; Purple Worm Skin; Worms Rumble Banner; and the ‘New Challenger’ title. Two additional cosmetic packs, the Action All-Stars Pack# and Legends Pack#, provide additional customisation options for players and are available to preorder ahead of launch; the Legends Pack is included in the Worms Rumble Digital Deluxe Version.
Worms Rumble Key Features:
- Real-time, frantic, 32-player action: Worms Rumble makes history as the first game in the series’ 25-year history to introduce real-time strategic combat and object destruction
- Get more targets with crossplay matchmaking: Whether on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, or PC players can battle against players from all other platforms
- Make your Worm its own: No Worms game would be complete without cosmetics and personalisation, ranging from outfits and hats to skins for your Worm and weapons they wield
- Lock and load your arsenal: Crates across the maps contain a host of weapons and items, including fan favourites like the Sheep Launcher, Holy Hand Grenade, and Grapple Gun.
