It’s joined by the Xbox One debut of the Worms franchise, Worms: Battleground.

Worms: Battlegrounds brings friends and families together in the noble pursuit of self‐improvement, world domination and exploding sheep. Worms™ Battlegrounds is the biggest and best Worms game to date – more worms, larger landscapes, more dynamic water, more weapons and more customisation items than ever before. It features beautiful high definition 3D visuals (but still retains the classic 2D gameplay) with new lighting effects, new features to help users interact socially, exciting additions to improve the single player experience, and more of everything a Worms fan could want.

Murdered: Soul Suspect ($59.99)
Available on the Xbox One and Xbox 360
A dark, detective thriller with a supernatural twist: solving your own murder from the afterlife. Play as Ronan O’Connor, a Salem police detective with a chequered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal killer. Trapped in a limbo world called Dusk, he is unable to find peace until he can bring his killer to justice. As Ronan, use powerful supernatural abilities to freely explore the shadowy afterlife. Unable to communicate with the detectives on his case, Ronan must read the minds of the living, influencing their thoughts and actions, and interrogate Salem’s dead to piece together the truth. The afterlife is not a safe place however, and his investigations are threatened by demonic spirits wanting to devour his soul.

Worms: Battlegrounds coming to PS4, Xbox One this year


Team17 has announced Worms: Battlegrounds, their first title to be released for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The developer’s franchise has appeared on 25 other platforms since it first debuted in 1995, and now it’s about to join next-gen consoles.

Team17 will be one of the first studios to self-publish through the ID@Xbox program with Worms: Battlegrounds. The game is due sometime in 2014 for both PS4 and Xbox One; however, if this is the Worms game Phil Spencer mentioned on Twitter (and it likely is), it’s due out on Xbox One in March.
