Worms Battlegrounds is an artillery strategy video game developed and published by Team 17. It was released on 30 May 2014 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Set within a world history museum, the single-player story follows the player's worms attempt to stop Lord Crowley-Mesmer, a worm attempting to take control of the museum.

Gameplay[edit]

Worms Battlegrounds is an artillery strategy game. Gameplay follows on the earlier games of the series, in which teams of worms take turns to use a variety of weapons and items in order to eliminate the opposing teams.

The game includes a total of sixty five weapons, which is the most in any Worms game to date. Among the ten new weapons is a ray gun, which was created due to the criticism of that the ninja rope wasn't authentic enough compared to older Worms games.[2]

The Xbox One version enables Xbox SmartGlass to keep track of stats, while the PlayStation 4's DualShock light bar changes color depending on the status of the player's worm.[3]

Reception[edit]

Worms Battlegrounds received mixed reviews. It has a Metacritic score of 67/100 and 72/100 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions and the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions received 69.44% and 72.70% respectively on GameRankings.[4][5][6][7]
