The Worms franchise is still going strong after almost twenty years as a new title for next-gen consoles is announced.

Team 17 have announced their latest Worms title over on Facebook today, bringing the map-cap turn based strategy game to the latest generation of gamers.

Entitled Worms Battlegrounds the title is due for release on PS4 and Xbox One this year. 

This comes almost 20 years after Worms first appeared when in 1995 it came out for the Commodore Amiga. A huge hit for British Indie Publishers Team17, Worms has enjoyed continuing success and has since appeared on over 25 different platforms.

The Battlegrounds release for Xbox One will be amongst the first to use the ID@Xbox self-publishing tool for which Team17 are one of the ambassadors.

Against a tide of 'samey' generic titles it's refreshing to see something with a quirky individual style and sense of humour still going strong.
