- Today Community Manager Mark Baldwin
at Team17 has announced that four new Worms 2: Armageddon PS3 DLC packs will be hitting PSN this month.
To quote: We have some exciting news for all you PlayStation 3 Worms fans out there - over the next month we have got some action-packed DLC packs for Worms 2: Armageddon set for release.
The first DLC pack we released last year was the destructive "Battle Pack", which had a nice mix of worm-y goodness, and was very well received by our passionate fans.
We also know that different Worms 2: Armageddon
players find different features of the game appealing, and people do have their favourites.
For example, some players like to spend time wracking their brains over the fiendishly-designed puzzles; others really enjoy demonstrating their 'leet' (their word!) heavy weapons skills in fort games, while others still prefer racing each other, or against the clock, using the ninja ropes and jet-packs.
We are also aware of the fondness that many fans have for the older titles that got people addicted to the wacky world of Worms in the first place. We are proud that our fans like the breadth of content that the game offers, and we hope that with these four new DLC packs we have something that will appeal to players of all tastes.
It is my pleasure to give you a rundown on the new DLC packs. The new DLC packs are as follows: The "Puzzle Pack", The "Forts Pack", The "Time Attack Pack" and The "Retro Pack".
As I said earlier, each of the DLC packs draw inspiration from the most popular elements of the game, adding new single-player puzzle missions, forts and fort-based missions, time-based racing missions, and reworked retro missions with really cool retro-modern visuals (check out the screenshot) respectively.
Each pack also has a new landscape theme, 12 new Trophies in each pack (!), and even more customisation elements into the mix, with themed hats, speech-banks and gravestones making up the content!
