Worms: Ultimate Mayhem breaks out on XBLA, PSN, PC

Team 17 bringing revamped Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem combo pack to downloadable platforms with new missions, puzzles, customization options later this year.

Team 17 just can't kick its case of Worms. Today the UK-based publisher announced another relapse in the form of Worms: Ultimate Mayhem for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Given their often grim fate, Worms should be in a constant state of panic.

Set for release this fall, Ultimate Mayhem is a downloadable compilation featuring revamped versions of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem. In addition to the full contents of both of those titles, Ultimate Mayhem will pack in new single-player missions, puzzles, and customization options.

Originally released in 2004, Worms 3D was the turn-based strategic shooter series' first excursion into the third dimension and packed in campaign, challenge, and multiplayer modes. Worms 4: Mayhem gave the heavily armed annelids a second 3D installment the following year and featured a single-player campaign with a time travel hook.

"NUMEROUS GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS & ENHANCEMENTS New camera enhancements make it easier to follow the action; optimized AI means more intelligent enemies, and the addition of speech and lip-synching to the single-player missions makes for even more cinematic fun!" steam. If that was true it would be great

They should merge 3D & 4, into one big game.

Thumbs Up: if you think "3D" Worms has a better 'dimension' than 2D... xD

I love both dimensions in the Worms games. I'm glad T17 didn't give up on the 3D games. I used to love playing Worms 3D.

Good, regardless of what the majority of you say, I thought Worms 4 was the best in the series as far as the multiplayer was concerned. It was a lot of fun when you had three mates over. I like the originals but haven't thought much of the recent 2D titles, it's too much of the same thing we've seen before. The gameplay is dated, it's about time they went back to 3D. I'd pay for a 3D Worms title with online multiplayer.

Worms was created with 2D in mind. Making it 3D hurt everything that made Worms enjoyable.

Worms 3D was all right, but it seemed way too easy to knock your opponents into the water compared to the 2D games. Took a bit of the strategy out of the game. I never played Worms 4.

If you want worms in 3D the game that did it best was Hogs of War. I've always preferred my Worms in 2D and it has never gotten better than Worms World Party. Though I'll atleast try the demo.

Haven't played Worms 4, but Worms 3D was cool when all is said and done. Yeah, I know it had numerous issues, but, it's Worms! My second favourite series of all-time.
