Worms Collection launches in the UK on 31st August for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Mastertronic has announced.

The retail disc includes three Worms games: Worms, Worms Ultimate Mayhem and Worms 2: Armageddon, plus six DLC packs.

Worms, which kicked the series off, launched in 1995 on pretty much every available platform, then again in 2007 on Xbox Live Arcade (and on PlayStation Network in 2009). An iOS version is floating about, too. It's a turn-based tactical 2D side-on blow 'em up in which you kill all of the worms. Eurogamer wasn't around when Worms first released, but our very own Tom Bramwell gave the XBLA remake a 6/10 in our Worms review.

Worms 2: Armageddon launched in 2009 on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live as the sequel to 1997's Worms: Armageddon (Eurogamer didn't review it). And Worms Ultimate Mayhem launched in 2011 for PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live as a reworking of Worms 3D and Worms 4: Mayhem. It's in 3D (opinions on 3D Worms games vary).

Mastertronic didn't reveal how much Worms Collection will cost but insisted it'll be a "price you can't afford to miss".
