We’re very excited to see players take to the arenas, and it’s fantastic that through the PlayStation 4/PC crossplay open beta next month, we can give you a taste of what’s to come in December. It’s even more special considering we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the series in days after the beta, with Team17’s own 30th anniversary coming up on the 7th December.” –Kevin Carthew (Creative Director at Team17)
Team 17 has also revealed the second map, which will come to Worms Rumble at launch; it’s called Portal Park, which will be revealed later today in some sort of teaser/trailer. We will keep you updated as soon as they are published. Portal Park will include underground train tracks that will provide your worm rapid transit to other parts of the map. The announcement of Portal Park follows on from the reveal of Missile Mall in the summer, which takes place in a huge, sprawling shopping mall complete with a ballistic missile.
