I don’t think any of us can get enough of these sales; they are friggin’ extraordinary. Team17, the developers behind Worms, have announced some whopping price drops on their stuff.

That brings Worms Reloaded to $9.99/€9.99/£8.99 and the Alien Breed games individually to $4.99/€4.49/£3.49 each. However, if you purchase the trilogy of Alien Breed games altogether, it will cost you $11.49/€10.49/£8.49.
Furthermore, the 4-pack of Worms Reloaded is offered at $33.98/€33.98/£30.58 and four new PC DLC packs for the game are at $4.24/€3.39/£2.54. Finally, for iOS gamers, Worms 2: Armageddon is available for $0.99 and so is the Battle Pack in-game content — naturally, only for a limited time!

Over the past week or so Team 17 has rolled out a couple of new patches for the multiplayer-heavy strategy title Worms Reloaded, now available to download automatically for owners of the game on Steam.
The patches bring a laundry list of bug fixes, multiplayer optimizations and other general improvements to the game.
From the combined change log:
Fixed an issue that meant all players were kicked from a private lobby when the host kicked a player
The game should now once again return to the post game lobby after a Player or Private match
Fixed bug where if clients were viewing schemes or had the “Are you sure you want to leave the lobby” dialogue open when the match started, the game would return to the multiplayer screen instead of the lobby
Fixed a specific Waiting for players… hang where if the game was badly out of synch before the game had started it could hang indefinitely
Additional Ready Light fixes
Fixed an issue to prevent the lobby host being kicked due to another player leaving when returning to the lobby after a game
Fixed issues with Hell theme occasionally desynching right at the start of a game
Fixed an issue in the Team Standings menu so that the Back button now responds to mouse input
Additional optimizations to stability of network games.
Prevented the user from entering blank or space filled names in the Intro Wizard
Prevented the player from selecting with the function keys while they are falling. This was the cause of an exploit which meant selecting the girder in mid air would stop a worm from falling
Fixed an issue which caused worms to continuously jump if pause menu was opened while jump button was pressed
Fixed a number of online crashes and made extra stability fixes throughout the game
Changed the player invite screen for Private Games. It now uses a paged list rather than a scrolling list and colours to more closely match those used by the Steam client
Fixed a crash which occurred if more than four players tried to join an online multiplayer lobby simultaneously
Additional improvements to the ready lights
Added file validation check on first run of new versions to ensure that no files are corrupted due to a faulty update download
Worms Reloaded is available for $20 with a demo offered to anyone with a Steam account as well.
Team 17 has released a new update for their multiplayer-centric strategy title Worms Reloaded, now available for download.
The patch brings a list of bug fixes and adjustments focusing around the online experience of the game, specifically focusing on lobby improvements. The file can be had by owners of the game automatically via the Steam client.
From the change log:
Fixed an issue which occurred when the host put their light bulb on and revoked the client ready state
Old lobbies should no longer show up when a player leaves a game in progress
Fixed an issue where the client can be thrown out of a lobby
Fixed a light bulb issue where the player would not actually be sending network messages when they enter the lobby so could never ready up
Stopped the game crashing if the game starts with all players on the same team alliance
Adjusted the column sizes in the lobby list screen so Spanish and Italian text fits in better
Fixed issue where sometimes private games would be partially setup as ranked so start game option would not be available
We now kill the voice chat when leaving lobby, so this should fix looping voices
You can now select custom schemes for player match setup
Fixed lobby creation failed messages happening so frequently
We have also made a number of other smaller fixes that should make online play more stable.
Worms Reloaded is available now on Steam for $20 with a demo offered as well.
Team 17 is apparently seeing some nice returns on their latest release Worms Reloaded. The game grabbed the top spot on Steam’s best sellers chart for the first week of September and still remains on the list in ninth position in the latest numbers release.
In fact (warning: tangential paragraph approaching) the latest Steam Top 10 has what might be a record for indies, with three such titles on the list at the same time and no major discounts in sight. Along with the aforementioned Worms title, Recettear makes its debut in the fourth position and Amnesia climbed all the way up to the runner-up spot for its launch week–but back to Worms: Reloaded and the two new updates the game has received over the past few days.
The two patches bring lobby improvements, bug fixes and adjust the timing to the Jump key to make double jumping easier to perform. The multiplayer-heavy title is available now for $20 with a demo offered as well.
From the patch notes:
Enabled Steam crash mini dumps to get additional feedback on the crash issues some people are experiencing
Lobby search distance filter added so users can select from regional, far and worldwide. This is set to worldwide by default
Added a time out on lobbies so that redundant lobbies won’t be found in a search
An adjustment has been made to the Jump key timing to make double jumping easier
Additional fixes have been implemented for frontend navigation with game pads.
The Game Style name in the Show Player Games screen is now localized
A fix has been added to ensure that Sentry Guns are always the correct team colour when placed in Online Multiplayer games
A fix has been implemented to ensure that the ordering of players in the lobby is now consistent between all players. This should fix issues whereby player avatars did not match up with the correct names and also alleviate some of the issues experienced with the Ready? light.
The ability to create a lobby has added to the Multiplayer Options menu. This will allow players to host their own lobbies without the need to search for available lobbies beforehand
Though it wasn’t available the moment the game released, the Worms Reloaded Steam page now carries a playable demo for the strategy title courtesy of Team 17.
No word yet on what the trial version of the game offers to interested parties, and whether that includes single-player, multiplayer or both. So dive right in if you get a chance and let us know, remember we’re all working together here.
The full version of the game is available for $20, while a discounted 4-pack is also being offered for $60 ($20 savings).
Indie veterans Team17 have finally released Worms Reloaded. That’s right, Team17′s incredibly famous and addictive Worms franchise has returned to gamers once more. Boasting over 60 single-player missions, intuitive online multiplayer through Steam, customization options for teams and game styles, landscape editing tools, HD visuals, and all of the most prominent weapons from previous Worms installments, Worms Reloaded is Team17′s biggest and baddest yet.
And to prove just how awesome of a respect for each other the two developers have, Valve is offering two exclusive in-game items for Team Fortress 2 players: “Holy Hand Grenades” and a Worms-styled army hat for their soldier. These exclusives are for gamers who either pre-ordered Worms Reloaded or buy the game before September 2nd.
Looking forward, Team17 have promised support and additional content in the future — utilizing one of the perks of self-publishing by keeping in contact with their fan-base.
Check out the new trailer below and be sure to purchase the game on Steam for Valve’s offerings.
Team17 continues its trek towards an August 26th release for their upcoming Worms Reloaded.

Add to this an expansive Landscape Editor and you now have individualized levels on which to show off your custom created critters!”
Steam is offering an excellent pre-order package — with 10% off, 24-hour early access, and exclusive in-game items. The newest trailer is viewable below, but can also be downloaded at this location.
