Worms Revolution announced

It's been 17 years since the very first Worms game was released, but developer Team17 Software's still mining it for all its worth. 20-odd installments later, the English indie has today announced a new entry in the turn-based strategy series, Worms Revolution.

"The game has been developed from the ground up and features a completely new game-engine," Team17 said in the announcement. "Exciting new features and challenges have been introduced whilst old favourites such as the Super Sheep and Holy Hand Grenade remain to thrill fans."

Beyond a teaser trailer showing shiny fluid effects and other jazz, that's all it has to show for now.

Worms Revolution is headed to PC and unspecified consoles in the third quarter of 2012.
