Worms 4, meanwhile, is described as the "definitive handheld Worms experience" and will feature an "enriched look and improved design for mobile." The game will focus on "smaller landscapes, smaller teams, and shorter match length, making action packed battles easily doable whilst on the go."

"Players will be able to take part in turn-based synchronous online multiplayer matches played out in real time, battle their way through 80 single player missions, collect over a hundred weapon upgrades and duel across 5 different themes," Team17 explains.

Worms 4 will be available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch in August 2015.

Team17 also recently revealed it is partnering with Platyonic Games to publish Yooka-Laylee, the Kickstarter funded spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. In addition to publishing, the company will assist with localisation, QA, marketing, certification and "other business matters."
