Team17 looking into a way for friends to connect more easily online in Worms W.M.D

Posted on November 26, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Worms W.M.D arrived on Switch this past week. Different multiplayer options are included in the game, such as local play and online support.

The one downside with online play is that it isn’t really easy to connect for friends. It’s true that you can find other players in lobbies. However, directly inviting friends isn’t possible, which Team17 partially attributed to Switch’s lack of system-wide invite feature.

So what’s next? Well, in a statement about the situation on Twitter, Team17 said it is “investigating how we can improve the situation for friends who want to play together online”. The company is also continuing to listen to feedback in the meantime.

Team17’s full statement reads:

We understand how important it is for Worms fans to play together, which is why we support up to six players both online and locally on Nintendo Switch.

Contrary to some reports, Worms W.M.D does feature online play on Nintendo Switch and friends are able to find each other through the lobbies. However, we appreciate the frustration some may feel from not being able to directly invite their friends.

With no system-wide invite solution currently available, we are investigating how we can improve the situation for friends who want to play together online on Nintendo Switch, and are listening carefully to the feedback of our fans in the meantime.
