After 21 years of availability, Worms Armageddon has been updated

Worms Armageddon has been available for over 21 years, and even now the game remains popular amongst its fanbase. Many sequels have come and gone, but many hardcore fans of the series still enjoy this classic. 

Today, Worms Armageddon has received an update, one which will improve the game's compatibility, add more customisation options for the game, add CPU teams to the title and allows the game to run on Linux through Proton or Wine. 

For users of modern PCs, you will be glad to know that Worms Armageddon now runs flawlessly on Windows 10, supporting a new OpenGL rendering option which may have the game run better than before on your hardware. Windowed mode is now supported, allowing gamers to run Worms Armageddon with hardware that doesn't support specific screen resolutions. Worms Armageddon is now a lot more accessible. 

Thanks to the efforts of volunteers, translations to Finnish, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Swedish are now available. Update 3.8 also brings with it 370 bug fixes, 61 new features and more. 

Higher framerate worms? 

With update 3.8, Worms Armageddon now supports an unlocked framerate, breaking the game's old 50Hz cap. Movements aren't interpolated between engine frames, making the game appear much smoother on modern hardware. Want to enjoy Worms on your 144Hz monitor? You can now do that!
   


With this update, Worms Armageddon now runs better than ever on today's PC hardware, making this classic even more enjoyable. Right now, Worms Armageddon is available on Steam

So much fun.

I worked out a hack though.. Not that it wasn't fun. In single player like, "career" mode where you earn the new weapons etc there was a really simple trick to win every single round very easy.

Firstly build a girder structure at the very top of the screen, as far away from the PC's worms as you can. Then teleport one worm up there, then more. Make sure the structure has about five angled pieces in front to stop homing missles and bazooka strikes.

Then set off the Indian Nuclear Test. All worms are reduced to 1, but that isn't what will win. Due to the test the water begins to rise. Because you are miles off the ground and the PC can't do anything they will all drown long before the water reaches you

Was a great way to earn all of the weapons. The concrete donkey was hilarious.Quote

Worms Armageddon is one of the first games I ever played on the PC. My PC was very weak at the time so it was also one of few games that I could run. And I played the crap out of it. It's such a wonderful game.

A couple of months ago I found an old notebook with all the names of the teams and worms that I used to play with as a kid. Naturally, I saved it in Excel. I'm not at home right now so I don't have access to that file. But if you'd like, I could post those names as soon as I'm able. Maybe you'll recognise some of those worms. The teams were basically randomly generated, but they meant a lot to me as a kid.Quote

Now im showing my age. I played the very original worms every day on Amiga back in 1995.

And also had to do the counting of 1,2,5 when throwing thy holy hand grenade.Quote

I have fond memories of creating little teams of worms, with custom names of my friends and I, and people we hated. How I used to love the Rastafarian voice set. "Grab ya pineapples and run!", or my personal favorite, when you accidentally grenaded your own dudes, "foooolish".Quote
