Team 17 are really trying to dominate the gaming market this year with a hearty helping of new or improved Worms titles; with Worms: Clan Wars for PC, Worms 3 for iOS, and now Worms: Revolution Extreme for PS Vita.
Worms: Revolution Extreme is a hand held version of Worms: Revolution that should be heading to PS Vita in Q3 of this year and will contain a campaign that includes 47 missions and 25 puzzles over several theme based areas such as beaches, the planet Mars, farms, and sewers – yum.
Worms: Revolution Exreme also includes navigation and zooming using the touch screen as well as aiming using the touchpad on the back of the Vita. As well as Vita specific features Team 17 have also utilised the cross-gifting feature that’s available between the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita.
According to the PlayStation Blog:
“New for PS Vita (and PS3) is the cool Cross-Gifting feature, Treasure Mode. This new mode lets you link up with your friends who have a PS3 system (or vice versa). You can help each other unlock 10 special gifts using a lock and key system. Meet the requirements in either offline Versus or online battles to receive a key and connect to a friend’s PS3 system with the corresponding chest to unlock the treasure!”
It looks like this year is the year for Worms. I’ll be interested to see if Team 17 have any more Worms titles up their sleeves – though I’m sure there’a a pill for that..
