"SEGA to Publish Worms Forts Under Siege in Europe and Australia


LONDON, UK - 29 April, 2004 - SEGA Europe Ltd, today announced the development of Worms Forts Under Siege, the latest title in Team 17's hugely entertaining Worms franchise. Worms Forts Under Siege is underway for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and the PC, and will be unveiled at E3 2004, May 12-14, on the SEGA stand - Room 151, Concourse Hall, Los Angeles Convention Center.


Since history began, castles have provided the backdrop to some of the most dramatic battles of all time... and in Worms Forts Under Siege, now it's your turn to take part in your own epic struggle, pitting fort against fort, worm against worm, and Catapult against Trojan Donkey!


Unleashing destruction on a scale never seen before in a Worms game, take personal command of your worm garrison and battle your way through time... from Ancient Egypt, to the epic struggle for Troy, facing the might of the Samurai, or aiding King Arthur in his knightly quest! You'll need skill, strategy and a healthy dose of Worms attitude if you want to master all 30 different weapons, and unlock the huge array of hidden maps, speech banks, missions, and challenges.


Matthew Woodley, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd, commented, "We've really enjoyed the experience of working with Team 17, and the simple yet thoroughly addictive gameplay of Worms Forts Under Siege makes it a great way to spend your time, either on your own but especially with friends. Team 17 has managed to improve on a winning formula once again."


Debbie Bestwick, Commercial Director, Team 17 Software Ltd, added, "Building on the strengths that have made the Worms games such a success, this latest instalment sees the series taken to a new level of gameplay. With massive weaponry and fortifications, there's a whole new strategic element that really adds to the engaging gameplay and addictiveness of the Worms experience."


Worms Forts Under Siege is scheduled for release on all three formats in Europe in Q4 2004.
