Ever since the launch of the PlayStation Vita, Team 17 fans have been requesting a mobile version of Worms for the handheld platform that they can play on the go. Well request no more as Team 17 have announced that Worms Revolution Extreme and it is making its way to the PlayStation Vita later this year.
Worms Revolution Extreme has a host of features to show off, including an extensive single player campaign that spans a whopping 47 missions. In addition to that there are 25 puzzles to beat and complete and a variety of settings to battle in such as Sewer, Farmyard, Spooky, Beach, Mars, Funfair or Medieval. In addition to all that solo fun, Worms Revolution Extreme is bringing back the multiplayer carnage with local or online multiplayer battles for up to four players! Players will be able to choose from one of three game modes: Deathmatch, Forts and Classic.
A new addition for PS Vita and PS3 is the cool Cross-Gifting feature, Treasure Mode! This all new mode enables you to link up with your friends who have a PS3 system (or vice versa). You can help each other unlock 10 special gifts using a lock and key system. Meet the requirements in either offline Versus or online battles to receive a key and connect to a friend’s PlayStation 3 system with the corresponding chest to unlock the treasure. Sounds pretty cool, kind of like the Pokemon Mystery Gift system.
Worms Revolution Extreme also utilises the PS Vita’s touch screen controls and adds in the ability to use the front touch screen to select items and zoom/pan the camera and the back touch screen to aim your weapons and gadgets.
Keeping with the Cross-Platform theme, Worms Revolution Extreme has Cross-Platform Continuation Play which allows players to carry on their PlayStation 3 save game progress on their PS Vita, or vice versa.
Worms Revolution Extreme is due for a Q3 2013 release and will be available for PS Vita via the Sony Entertainment Network Store.
