Worms Battlegrounds, the latest chapter in the venerable destroy-’em-up franchise, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the U.K. on May 30 and in the U.S. on June 3.

The game will be primarily available as a digital download, but can still be snapped up at select retailers if you prefer a boxed copy.

Aesthetically, Battlegrounds takes much of its inspiration from the classic Worms titles, and comes packaged with local and online multiplayer carnage for up to four players.

As you’d expect, the game boasts a meaty weapons line-up, with 65 unique tools up for grabs, including 10 newcomers: the Mega Mortar, Gravedigger, Winged Monkey, Oxygen, Worm Cham, Bovine Blitz, Whoopsie Cushion, Teleport Gun, Aqua Pack and The Equalizer.

PS4 users can look forward to DualShock 4 touchpad functionality, allowing you to assign four weapons for quick use. Your worm’s status will also be monitored by the light bar.
