The campaign story focuses on a character named Tara Pinkle (voiced by Katherine Parkinson), who serves as the game's narrator, as well as providing missions for the team. In addition to campaign mode, the game also features ten Worm Ops mission that features time attack modes.

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, like Worms Revolution, has four different classes each improved with new special abilities. This is also the first Worms game to add Steam Workshop support.
