New DLC for Worms next week

Team17 have given word that their downloadable content is on the way and will be launching onto the Marketplace next Wednesday. The content isn’t all free, but they promise that it is as cheap as can possibly be, with some being offered for free. Full contents and screenshots after the jump.

Firstly, there will be three new landscapes to play on. Jungle, Hell and Space will be available, and both Jungle and Hell will cost 150 MS Points. The Space landscape will be free for all. Additionally, you can try out the maps online should you join a game that has them. You won’t be disconnected from the game if the map turns to one that you don’t have, which is excellent news.

Team17 will also be offering a new Soundbank which comes with several new voices, and will also be free of charge. The confirmed voices that will be available are:

  • Africaan
  • AngryScots
  • Classic
  • Cyberworms
  • Danish
  • DanishPyrus
  • DoubleOhSeven
  • Dutch
  • Dutch2
  • Finnish
  • Greek
  • Hungarian
  • Irish
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Redneck
  • Russian
  • Scouser
  • StiffUpperLip
  • Swedish
  • Swedish2

Lastly, just like every other game, there will be some themes and gamer pictures on offer. For the gamer pictures, there are two offerings: one with five pictures and the other with twelve, costing 100 and 200 MS Points respectively. Both themes are 150 MS Points each. They actually look pretty good too, and could see even hardened haters of DLC purchasing them.

Head over to the official forum page where there are more images, and so you can see exactly what you’ll be getting for your money. Does this seem more reasonable to you?

Quit Bitchin’ and put up the 150. It won’t kill you, unlike spending those gamerpoints for some other more useless crap.

I was just wondering how long before the DLC finally comes through for worms. I was expecting a bit more but three landscapes seem fun enough anyway.

Plus I love the decapitated worm gamerpic.

Holy Hand grenade please.

They will never bring out new weapons. This has been stated by Team17 time and time again.

Whoop Whoop! Angry Scots! Now my worms can sound like me, they better call people a fucking tool though or I won’t be happy.

You can’t try the landscape styles without buying them. The host is only able to select a style that all players have.
