officially announced the release date of Worms Revolution Extreme on PS Vita today.
To quote: Hi readers! It's been two months since we revealed we'd be bringing Worms Revolution Extreme to PS Vita - our first Worms game to hit this awesome mobile platform.
We've been inundated with eager fan requests of when the pocket, turn-based strategy will arrive on PlayStation Store. We're really excited to share with you that Worms Revolution Extreme will be available to download for your PS Vita via PSN on October 8th, for just $14.99.
Worms Revolution Extreme features an extensive single-player campaign spanning 72 levels in total, which are a mixture of missions and puzzles. Levels are set across seven different environmental themes, including Sewer, Farmyard, Spooky, Beach, Mars, Funfair, and Medieval!
Have you nailed the single player and think you're ready to take on other players? You'll be glad to know that there's local and online multiplayer battles for up to four players! Choose from three different game modes: Deathmatch, Forts, or Classic, and either predefined or customized game settings.
New Treasure Mode! This all-new, cross-gifting mode enables you to link up with your friends who have a PS3 (or vice versa). You can help each other unlock 10 special gifts using a lock and key system.
Meet the requirements in either offline versus or online battles to receive a key and connect to a friend's PS3 with the corresponding chest to unlock the treasure! What will you unlock?
We've also utilized PS Vita's touch controls and added in the ability to use the front touch screen to select items and pan/zoom the camera. You can also enable the rear touch pad to aim your weapons.
Worms Revolution Extreme lets you keep your worms mobile with cross-save functionality. Carry your PS3 save game progress over to your PlayStation Vita, or vice versa.
Just reached a vital part in the campaign on PS3? Bring it to PS Vita so you can continue your quest on the bus/tube/train, and keep Don Keystone by your side!
Oh, and if you don't already have Worms Revolution for PS3, it's currently available with a sweet 50% discount for PS Plus members! But only until October 8th.
We hope you'll all enjoy keeping your army of worms mobile, and we'll hopefully see some of you in online battles soon. May the best worm win!
