Thought you knew how Worms W.M.D. would play out? Think again because Team17 have today unveiled a new crafting system, detailing it with a trailer and screenshots.
Worms W.M.D will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year, but today, Team17 have thrown a spanner in the works by dropping details regarding a brand new crafting sysytem. Worms W.M.D will feature 35 different utilities and weapons within the game but for the first time ever players will be able to expand this number to over 80 with the addition of crafting.
You will start the game with a specific amount of crafting ingredients, depending on which game scheme is chosen. Or none at all if you prefer to play with the Classic scheme! Further ingredients can then be collected from crafting crates or scavenged by dismantling existing weapons. Can’t reach the enemy worm and you’ve only got a Baseball Bat? Dismantle it and craft a grenade!
Weapons and utilities can be crafted during the player’s turn or even in between turns during online play, as the opposing teams take their turns. Crafting really expands the weapon set and adds in many brand new fun weapons including the Party Balloon, Luzi, Electric Sheep, Sticky Grenade and Concrete Angry Donkey to name but a few.
When you combine this crafting system with the vehicles and buildings which Team17 have already spoken about, we’re pretty sure Worms W.M.D will be the most in-depth Worms experience yet. Not bad for a franchise that’s getting on a bit!
