Update #2: It has been pointed out that the Worms World Party product description has been copied exactly from the Steam version of Worms World Party Remastered, suggesting that online multiplayer may not be on the map at all.
Update #1: If you’re curious what Worms World Party looks like on PS5 and PS4, here are some screenshots taken from the PS Store† Unsurprisingly, given the game’s graphical style, it doesn’t benefit greatly from the upgraded hardware. Still, it looks pretty sharp in our opinion.
Original story: Worms World Party is one of many PS1 releases that will renaissance as one of All PS Plus games included with the PS Plus Premium low. And as the service launches in Asia in a few days, more details about the conversion are starting to emerge. As previously reported, there will be a number of graphical filters available for the retro titles, including a classic CRT look, but in the case of Team 17’s party game, there seems to be online multiplayer as well.
This is what the PS Store description says: “Access the fantastic ‘Wormpot’ which gives you over 1,000 different game styles. All modes are available offline, online or a combination of both!” Now it’s unclear if Sony may be referring to a feature like Share Play here, but it seems to suggest that full online multiplayer functionality has been added, which is impressive. This kind of support could breathe life into a number of retro titles indefinitely.
We’re of course still waiting for more information and will email Sony and Team 17 to try and get clarification, but the description here is pretty clear: online multiplayer seems to be in it.
