– The next entry in the long-running turn-based franchise Worms, Worms W.M.D has had a host of pre-order bonuses announced and they are quite special. There is a host of in-game additions, all related to various other games including Rocket League and Orcs Must Die. What’s more, on the Xbox One people that pre-order the game will receive exclusive Rare Replay goodies. For the full rundown check out the Worms W.M.D All-Stars Edition trailer below.
– In what has to be one of the stranger announcements in recent times, EA has stated that they are making a Battlefield TV series in conjunction with Paramount TV. Of all video games prime for a TV conversion, I would have thought that Battlefield would have been right at the bottom of the list. After all the games aren’t exactly known for their cracking single-player campaigns, are they? There is no time frame for the TV series so fans of the franchise shouldn’t hold their breath.
