44w ago - Team17 Creative Manager Kevin Carthew has announced today that Alien Breed launches a PS3 and PS Vita assault next week.
Below are the details, to quote: Alien Breed, our new survival horror game, is due for release on PS3 and PS Vita on February 12th via PlayStation Store for $9.99, with a 20% launch discount available for PlayStation Plus members!
Last year we celebrated the 21st anniversary of Alien Breed and brought the title to PlayStation Mobile. With the PS3 and PS Vita version we wanted to introduce more cool features, such as the ability for players to team up on either system via cross-platform play.
There is also ad-hoc and online co-op multiplayer for PS Vita, and local and online co-op multiplayer for PS3. We've also got Cross-Platform Continuation Play in the mix too, allowing players to carry on their PS3 save game progress on their PS Vita and vice versa.
Alien Breed is fondly remembered by its fans, especially in the UK where the Special Edition stayed in the "All Formats" charts for over a year. We were really proud of the 2009 version of the game, but a remake of the original game turned out to be a much better fit for the platforms it was appearing on.
122w ago - 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...
161w 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.
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.
To act as a nice aside to the action and to allow the player to demonstrate their creative side, we've...
164w 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.
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.
In this game the players can do battle in six different environments. Often in Worms games the game's themes have...
