Posted by Staff
As the world readies itself for the release of Worms World Party, the latest installment in the best- selling franchise, developers Team 17 have launched a dedicated web site for the fully online title.

Worms World Party, released for Dreamcast and PC through Virgin Interactive in March, marks the best-selling series' debut as an online title. Retaining the series' famed gameplay - wherein teams of worms are sent into battle with a wealth of weapons in order to wipe out opposing factions - Worms World Party now allows users to compete with Worms fans all over the globe in real-time 'death matches'.

The dedicated site (http://wwp.team17.com) will act as a central point for Worms World Party fans, providing a host of features to aid enjoyment of the game. The site contains screen shots, game information, interviews with the Wakefield-based developers and news updates. It also provides valuable resources to allow Worms World Party-goers to set up tribute sites using licensed images from the game.

"Worms World Party is set to become a legend within gaming circles," offered Team 17's Debbie Bestwick. "With our previous Worms-related sites generating over 50,000 hits a day, it was only logical that we launch a version of the game that finally lets the series' ardent fans loose on each other via the Internet - it's going to be some battle!"
