Today is the 25th anniversary of Worms, the iconic series from Team17 that has appeared on more systems than we can count over its lengthy lifetime.

The very first game in the franchise launched on 17th November 1995 on the Commodore Amiga, with more recent titles appearing on Nintendo Switch and other modern platforms. The series has sold more than 75 million games in total over that time period, remaining a hugely important part of Team17's brand.

To celebrate the milestone, the Team17 store is offering Worms game discounts up until 24th November. The discounts only apply to Steam versions of the games – so you won't be able to use the discounts on Switch – but the savings reach as much as 80% off certain titles.

It's also been announced that three classic Worms games – Worms, Worms Armageddon, and Worms Blast – will launch on the Evercade in 2021.


Debbie Bestwick MBE, Chief Executive Officer at Team17, has shared the following:

"For a long time, Worms has been at the very heart of Team17. Even now, years into a successful period as a games publishing label, the battling critters remain an important part of our DNA. It’s a series loved by gamers of all ages for decades, with an enduring appeal even when it’s explored and played with new experiences. Watching the series develop over the years has been a wonderful journey to share with one of the most passionate and vocal communities in gaming. Here’s to another 25 years of Worms!"
