Worms Battlegrounds now available for the Xbox One for $24.99


This isn't a indie game. Worms is a really good game and old franchise. I use to play it alot on Dreamcast. Its well worth 25 dollars.

Do all games (Retail, Arcade and idie) have a 1000G cap? Or they just like on Xbox 360...1000G retail, 400 arcade and 0G for indie????

Wow....guess I have to get my Xbox Ones games ready before my console arrives. It's totally worth it than to buy an arcade game on 360....for only 400G.

I'm not purchasing this game until they get their fucking act together and charge $115. I refuse to underpay!

ikr. These are shit deals nowadays. They really need to raise their game and get with the competition. $25 for a game?! Something around the lines of $200 would be way more reasonable.

I just might buy it on windows phone for $25! Just kidding. But this definitely needs to be on windows phone Fo Sho

This looks like the Bomb! Looks like mindless mayhem (she might have mentioned that ;) I think I will have to give a go...

That's opinion. People who like ps4's more will say the exact opposite of what you said.

This is why I have both consoles. :)

They will say say that but they'll be wrong: the Xbox One lineup of games is easily way better than the PS4 lineup right now. It's not even close.

I don't get why they release those consoles without a bigger lineup either. Everything gets pumped out today just to be first (or not last).

For an extra two dollars you could buy Super Time Force ($15) and Peggle 2 ($12), both of which are effing awesome. I'd do that, if I hadn't already done it.

Those are both great games, but so is Worms Battlegrounds. Of the three, Worms has a much bigger focus on multiplayer.

You shouldn't say dumb things about indie games. That said, Worms has been sold at retail ever since its inception and this version is available at retail in Europe. It's indie in that Team 17 is a small company, but no less historied than many non-indie gaming series.

Worms is an excellent title, but its unfortunate that it's only available for Xbox one right now. The previous Worms game on PC was the same price.

Worms Battlegrounds and Worms Clan Wars are pretty much the same. Team 17 just adds a few new features and changes the name when they port from one platform to another.

So because it's a indie game we should set the price at $10....really? People need to stop being so cheap. This game has multiplayer and clan support.

Indie games were never included with the 360. I know this program is a bit different from the implementation on 360, but only time will tell. They just mentioned that the program was extended to the Xbox One this month, so who knows what the future has in store.

£19.99 on the UK store, does seem abit much. But in general the pricing for downloads needs to be sorted out anyway.

Such a shame, me and my XBL friends play Worms alot on 360 and were waiting for this release.

$25 is way to much for this game, $10 max

I would not hold my breath for a WP8 release. Terraria is still MIA. On console but no mobile love even though it was announced.

Snails was a rip off of worms.  Worms has been around at least since 1996 because I loved playing it when I was 9.  Its also where I got my online alias from actually ^_^

I couldn't help but pick this game up.  I've played about 3 of the worms games, the first one being the original worms game it was one of the first video games I ever played.  Around the same time Warcraft 2 came out and you could play it online through this grevously long process on "The Zone", a gaming division on MSN if I remember right, although MSN might have bought The Zone later.  Anyways, that is where I started using the nickname Wormy, which started from how you could name your worms in the game, I had this worm I loved named 'Worm Eater'.  Oh so fun.

So for funsies I picked the game up and tried to remember all my old favorite names for my Worms from 1996.

The games great...  Still has all the things in it that made the classic so enjoyable.
