Watch: Ian and Chris do battle in Worms WMD

Dark Soils.

Worms is one of the most instantly recognisable franchises going - not surprising, given it's been around for over 20 years. By the same token, however, it's an easy one to underestimate; if you've played one you've played them all, right?

Not so, claim Ian and Chris, who went head-to-head in Worms WMD earlier on today. The formula may be familiar, but Worms WMD brings enough new stuff to the battlefield to keep it fresh.

Watch the video below for vehicles, updated artwork, buildings and - presumably - a lot of explosions.
