It's official, Worms Battlegrounds is set to launch on the PS4 and Xbox One (depending on your region), in a little less than a month. New platform owners looking to take part in the entertaining yet strategic Worms action can do so beginning on June 3rd.
Worms Battlegrounds will be available as a PS4 digital release in North America, and in Europe, will launch as a digital and retail title for both platforms, though a price was not yet revealed. The announcement didn't specify a North American Xbox One launch date for some reason.
