Team17 Reveals Customization in Worms: Battle Islands for PSP

50°
198w ago - Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has revealed several customization options today in Worms: Battle Islands for PSP.

To quote: A couple of weeks ago, we introduced the latest game in our long-running Worms series, Worms: Battle Islands on PSP.

We gave an overview of the game and introduced some of the single-player and multiplayer modes included. This time, we want to show you some of the customisation options that will make Worms: Battle Islands the most personal title in the series.

Customisation

The ability for players to customise their team of worms has always been a mainstay feature of the series and one that I think people who play the game get a lot of enjoyment from. For Worms: Battle Islands, we put a lot of effort into increasing the player's options for how they customise their team.

There are new customisation categories such as masks and backpacks, and over a hundred different items with which the player can leave their personal mark. It's possibly the highest degree of customisation we've ever had in a Worms game, and it's certainly the most customisable of the 2D games.

201w ago - Today Team17 Community Manager Mark Baldwin has introduced Worms: Battle Islands for the PlayStation Portable handheld console.

To quote: This winter sees the release of the latest game in our long running Worms series, Worms: Battle Islands, on PSP available from PlayStation Store.

Worms: Battle Islands marks the third time that the series has made an appearance on the PSP, and the game is packed with content and great new features, some of which I'll be talking about in this post.

Game overview:

The first thing to say about the game is that at its core it's the traditional 2D Worms experience.

It's a turn based game where players use a mix of strategy and skill to move their army of worms about a landscape, and attack one another with a range of funny weapons (exploding sheep, deadly bananas, fully automatic sub machine guns, etc.) until the last team standing are declared the winners. The physics are much more solid in this version and the game features a sizable inventory of forty different weapons and utilities, leading to more complex strategies and a more rewarding experience.

Environments:

In this game the players can do battle in six different environments. Often in Worms games the game's themes have...

229w ago - SCEE European Product Manager Rob Rutter has announced news today of a SingStar Online Battle Mode and PS3 Beta coming soon.

To quote: I'm really pleased to be able to let you know about a great new gameplay feature coming soon to SingStar in the June update.

For the first time, you'll be able to take part in Online Battles against your friends in SingStar. When competing in an Online Battle, you'll send an invite to one of your PSN friends, match songs (you both need to own a song to play it) - pick-up the mic and in true MC style 'let battle commence'.

When playing, you can view your opponent's score live, and see them playing via PlayStation Eye.

As this is a new feature for SingStar, the team needs to test out the gameplay with real players, and this is where you come in! We're running a Closed Beta for our most dedicated SingStar players to come and help us test out new features and upgrades to the game. If you're already a SingStar player aged over 18 with a European PSN account, have the game, mics and an online-enabled PS3, we need your help!
