Worms Revolution Headed to Retail in Europe
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 10/04/13 3:47pm CEST

Mastertronic, who have a long and storied history of rereleasing Team17 titles, have posted an entry on their website for yet another retail release of an Xbox Live Arcade title - this time a collection featuring Worms Revolution. Titled Worms: The Revolution Collection, the package states it will include "All 3 DLC Packs", which rather contradicts Team17's plans for a fourth DLC pack that they claim to have been working on for the last few months.

The pack is also to include Worms 2: Armageddon plus 5 DLC packs, which (and I'm just speculating here) probably includes the Battle Pack plus the five individual DLC packs that aren't the free "Mayhem Pack". Either that or they've just chosen five of the seven available DLC packs for the game. Or Mastertronic can't count.

The cover art is atrocious, by the way, but then that's nothing new - Team17 don't know how to do cover art anymore, and the thumbnails they put together for their digital releases translate exceptionally poorly to physical product. Also of note: Team17 and Mastertronic's decision to make this an Xbox 360 exclusive - previous collections put out by Mastertronic have been released for the PS3 as well, but negative fan reaction to the sluggish framerate and poor controls on the PS3 version may well have scuppered any plans to push it out to retail.

The Revolution Collection is priced at £24.99, and can be preordered from Sold-Out.co.uk, or from Amazon.co.uk for £24.

Also of note: The US version of Xbox.com now has an entry for the Worms Collection. This collection, previously released in Europe by Mastertronic, is being brought to the US by Maximum Games and includes the XBLA versions of Worms, Worms 2: Armageddon, and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem. Xbox.com doesn't list a release date, and it's possible this release might actually be cancelled.
