Worms Reloaded looks set to hit Linux

By - | Views: 18,733
Worms Reloaded the awesome side scrolling turn based strategy game by Team17 looks like it is heading over to Linux.

We recently took a look over at the SteamDB to see this:

Looks like we will be getting in the classic worms action before too long!

About the Game
Ten years on from Worms™ Armageddon and the turn-based comic mayhem continues in Worms™ Reloaded, an all-new edition available for PC through Steam. Worms™ Reloaded features up to four player online and offline multi-player, voice support, a raft of crazy new weapons (and the return of some iconic weapons from the brand’s celebrated past), achievements, leaderboards, all new high-definition landscape themes, a range of brilliant forts for the new Fort mode, new landscape editor, new play modes, hats, skins and speech banks.

To top it all off, there is also a highly-involving single-player experience with tutorials, deathmatches, races, fort games and puzzles. Enjoy the new High Definition full colour graphics engine, revised physics and pit your wits against the all-new A.I. with seven personality types, ranging from easy to very hard and styles like vengeful, cocky and ‘Darksider’! The game is also packed with customization options, and includes thousands of possibilities for your team of worms, tons of game options and custom levels, so you can play the game how you want!

Funnily enough our guest editor cheese left a review of it on Steam and said this:
QuoteWorms returns to 2D on the PC! The lack of windowed mode makes me a bit sad, but otherwise, this is a great game with all the gameplay you'd expect from the Worms series, a solid single player campaign and traditional multiplayer Worms fun.

Personally I have fond memories of the very first game on Amiga (another game from Amiga times woohoo!) and spent many hours with it.

Looks like the game has come a long way from it's original routes to includes things like a full single player, customization system, full online play with leaderboards and a lot more, crazy!

Another big win here folks.

As always though SteamDB is by no means full confirmation but considering the content in the included image, I think this one will be a safe bet folks!

The only thing is apparently it doesn't support cross platform multiplayer which is a bit of a let-down, means we need to arrange some Linux matches! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Whoa this is the Worms series that a good friend used to tell me about, when I tried to tell him about Earthworm Jim... think I'll need to give this one a try!

Also don't forget about Openlierox, Hedgewars and WarMUX =)

You can't really compare Liero to Worms, but yes, Hedgewars is awesome. :D It's nearly as good as Worms Armaggeddon, which in my view was the peak of the series
