Team 17 has announced the release date for the next title in the Worms series, Worms Battlegrounds. The title will release on PS4 and Xbox One on the 30th of May in Europe, and on the 3rd of June in North America.

Battlegrounds will include 35 single-player missions, 25 for story mode missions and 10 for Worm-Ops time attack missions. The title will also feature local and online multiplayer modes up to four players, including Deathmatch and Fort. Players will be able to play with 65 different weapons, 10 of which are new: the Mega Mortar, Whoopsie Cushion, Teleport Gun, Winged Monkey, Oxygen, Worm Charm, Bovine Blitz, Aqua Pack, Gravedigger and The Equalizer.

The PS4 version of the title will make use of the DualShock 4's light bar to tell you the status of your worm, and also use the touch pad to quickly select weapons. The Xbox One version will feature the SmartGlass companion app, which allows you to check your stats via phone.

Although a price has yet to be revealed, Team17 has confirmed that Worms Battlegrounds will be available both digitally and at certain retailers. Feel free to check the announcement trailer below.
