Worms: Clan Wars (PC EXCLUSIVE GAME)
here is the first info/news about this game... I thought that some of you out there might actually wanna know about this and there are plenty of screenshots for the new game as well... Reading the whole preview, it sounds like its going to be VERY heavy multiplayer focused which may be expected with a name like CLAN WARS :D

Its basically a much better version of what Revolution is going from the screenshots.... One of the major things that I hoped was in reloaded and revolution was the ability to add CPU teams in un-Ranked multiplayer games, so me and a friend could do 2on2 against the computer or something... or just filling in empty slots on a match with AI if it wasn't a ranked match. I'm hoping for a much much better world/landscape generator and it sounds like they've worked on that..... here is the preview:

Yeah, I signed up for the beta the other day. I hope to get selected for it. I hope that they've addressed the problems that are present in Revolution. It's a shame that they're still using a "2.5D" graphics engine though.

agreed....no 1v1 is fine, so long as you can use bots/CPU teams to fill empty spots

So is this a worms revolution 2.0 or does this game do something different?

Well, details are scarce at the moment but I do know a few things:

- the physics model of the game is better in general
- the dynamic water has improved
- there are more types of physics objects, and they are more dynamic/interactive
- there are new weapons and utilities, like the aqua pack
- the game will have far more customization options (reportedly)
- the game will have a better ranking system (the one in this game is worthless)
- the classes are going to be modified a bit as far as their pros and cons
- the maps appear larger


That's all I know for now... hopefully more news will be coming soon.

I don't know about the no 1 vs 1 thing though. It would be pretty damned stupid if it wasn't included.

Naa I think there is going be an option for 1v1 matches it's just the guy that did the review never played a 1on1 match or had that part of the game enabled yet. My general concenses of the game so far is that basically yes its Revolution 2.0. Improvements to the physics of the game in general, improvements to the water and how it flows down the terrian, imrpovements to the randomized landscape generator and the general look will be revolution but I think that's about as far as it goes apart from the weapons.

It seems extremely heavy multiplayer orientated hence why they called it Clan Wars. You can have upto 120 ppl in each clan, and I think you unlock more spaces as your clan ranks up, each clan doesn't start with 120 peeps and there is reported more "social" features that will connect t o facebook, probably youtube as well, but couldn't care less about that stuff personally....

Looks like there is a return of the more wanted themes like a proper lava level with volcano, a return of the snow levels (yay) and a return of the egyption levels. I'm hoping there is a LOT more levels/themes that come out on launch instad of a measly 4 levels like Revolution did, hell even if the current levels are there from revolution would be awesome as that would put us on what, 12 themes? something like that in total if they did that... would definitely be a much more complete worms game if that was the case.

Sounds like they listened to all the ♥♥♥♥♥ing about the rope and sounds like its more along the lines of Armageddon rope swinging..... Thats about it for public knowledge hopefully a lot of us can get into the beta and properly test it out..............

You can play a clan game by yourself if you wish.

For the purposes of demoing the game we had four of us playing together, two people controlling two worms for their clan's team :)

Do not understand what you mean. 1 player vs 1 player mode will be or not in new worms?!

I'm waiting to get accepted into that beta, I've been doing videos on this since it came out.

I prefer playing against the computer, too many times I've found online opponents are unreliable, often quitting just because one of their worms got attacked/killed first.

Really? I prefer playing against real players, the computer doesn't use all the weapons.

My hope is that they will make an UI that actually makes sense on PC. The one in Revolution is not to my liking at all. Especially the menus (dear god...)

You can play local and online multiplayer. Then there's also the Online Clan games which can be friendly or league matches.
