The Worms Rumble Open Beta is Now Available!
Announced in a press release, Team17 has just launched the open beta for Worms Rumble! The beta runs until November 9th at 12:00AM PDT and is available now on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. PlayStation Plus subscribers can access the beta through the PlayStation Store while PC players can download the beta through this link. The open beta allows cross-play between both platforms for up to 32 players, and the full launch will also have cross-play with PlayStation 5.
During the open beta, Worms Rumble will feature a new map: Transforming Towers. New modes will also be featured in the open beta, with two Battle Royale modes for solos and squads joining the standard deathmatch. New weapons are also available, including the Sheep Launcher, Hammerhead, Sentry Turret, Plasma Blaster, and Rocket Shield. Support items like the Grappling Gun and Jetpack are also available for players. You can see some of the game in action below with the new trailer!
Chris Coates, the Head of Studio at Team17, had this to say about the game: “We’re extremely excited to throw open the doors and give players a glimpse into Worms Rumble ahead of its release next month. Worms is a huge franchise that means a lot to us, and what better way to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary than with a title that revitalizes the formula with real-time combat while retaining plenty of that classic charm we’ve come to love over years. Players will even get their hands on some iconic returning weaponry during their time in the beta!”
The full launch for Worms Rumble will be on December 1st, 2020. Players who pre-order will gain exclusive cosmetic items to make their worm stand out. These items include an exclusive outfit, beanie, skin pattern, baseball bat skin, player banner, and a challenge title. What do you think about the Worms revival?
