Team17 has announced that Worms Rumble, the small but mighty battle royale is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch on 23 June.
When you’re looking to unleash some attack sheep then there’s nothing better than a bit of Worms. Now, Nintendo Switch owners can get on the go with some Worms infused battle royale. The first real-time action instalment of the Worms franchise initially exploded onto other formats back in late 2020, breaking the mould with arena-based 32 player cross-platform combat.
As players participate in Last Worm Standing or wield a Holy Hand Grenade in Deathmatch, they’ll have the opportunity to do it in a new out of this world environment. The launch of Worms Rumble on Nintendo Switch coincides with the release of the free Spaceport Showdown arena. This new backdrop fires the action far above the atmosphere and adds in a new, randomly generated, low-gravity mechanic that slows the action down during battle. For Worms Rumble newbies on the Switch, this will be available alongside the other free Deadly Dockyard, Battlegrounds Bank, Missile Mall, Portal Park, and Transforming Towers maps. Players will also be able to grab a free exclusive outfit for Nintendo Switch players, the Patchwork Bear.
If you’ve not introduced yourself to the newest Worms game then things might be about to take a messy turn. Worms Rumble is already available on Steam and PlayStation Platforms. Players can piece together their own wriggly combatant from over 1000 options, then take on friends, enemies, and randoms in the frantic crossplay action that ditches traditional shotguns for the likes of the Sheep Launcher, Holy Hand Grenade, and Grapple Gun.
