Worms Battlegrounds is an artillery strategy game, and is the first Worms game to make an appearance on the Xbox One. Landscapes are 30% larger, there are 10 new items compliment a total of 65 weapons and utilities and over 200 individual customization items help set your worms apart from the crowd. You can create and manage your own multiplayer clan to compete online, create your own landscapes for use in both online multiplayer and local play and even experience a humorous and engaging Story Mode that adds strategy with the introduction of physics based contraptions. Distinct worm classes, five new environments, 10 timed Worm Ops challenges and much more can be found in this extremely robust offering.
As of December, 2014, you can download the Alien Invasion DLC that will grant you access to 10 new levels in an all new story mode, new alien designed weapons, and bodycount mode, which allows you to fight wave after wave of enemy worms.
Story Mode & Worm Ops:
The story mode walks you through the basic techniques and strategies that are required to be a successful competitor. While offering little challenge to those familiar with the Worms franchise, story mode is quite entertaining. Puzzles and specialized circumstances keep things fresh while testing your critical thinking skills. There is a total of 25 levels in story mode that must be completed in order. Make sure to avoid taking any damage on level 11 in order to unlock “Untouchable.” You could replay levels as many times as you wish, so do not worry if you miss this achievement on your first attempt.
Worm Ops is an extra feature in which you must conquer ten puzzling objectives in a timely fashion. Although there is no specific time limit in which you must complete these missions, it is meant as a “beat your best time” type game mode. In order to obtain the “Sergeant Swift” achievement, you are required to complete all 10 Worm Ops missions in a combination of eight minutes. This being the most difficult achievement in the game may seem more intimidating than it actually is. You can replay any Worm Ops mission as many times as you want in order to beat your best time, which means that every time you beat your time in one mission, your overall time goes down as well. If you follow the video guide down below properly, then you should have no trouble with this achievement.
For local play multiplayer have your friends turn on their controllers to join the action. Create your own landscapes, game styles, and even teams if you want, and enjoy.
Worms: Battlegrounds offers many online options including competitive ranked matches, friendly player matches and even clan leagues. The best method to unlocking the online achievements is obviously boosting with a friend or a member of the community. The boosting thread can be found HERE. It is not at all difficult to find your way into your partner’s lobby in ranked or clan matches, but if you happen to end up in someone else’s lobby just back out and search again. There are a total of eight online achievements for an overall score of 220.
The rest of the achievements can be (but don't have to be) earned in Local multiplayer. These matches can be played against A.I. teams or simply boosted by yourself since you can control multiple teams with one single controller. The remaining achievements generally involve killing worms and utilizing the various utilities, weapons and equipment to deal damage for your final 290.
Alien Invasion features an all-new Story Mode consisting of 10 levels that must be completed in order. Each mission requires you to kill all enemy worms while protecting your spacecraft. If the spacecraft is destroyed, or all of your worms are defeated then you will have to try again. Be sure to not let the spacecraft take any damage in level 6 to unlock “Not a Scratch.” For advice on how to do this refer to the achievement guide below.
