Codemasters have released a new [url=]PC demo[/url] of thier soon to be released 3D strategy title, Worms 4: Mayhem. The demo, which is 225Mb, shows off amongst other things the new worm customisation options allowing you to create your own personalised army of worms.

"The Worms 4: Mayhem demo lets you go head-to-head (if you can work out which end IS the head) against other teams of worms and do your level best to blow the earth out of your rivals!

You can even get a taste of the game's new customisation options - including the ability to create your own personalised army of worms. In the demo, you can sample the full game's huge dressing up box and try on all kinds of disco, cowboy, Scots and astronaut clobber.

Then it's into the game, with Quick Game, Multiplayer (against CPU) and a mission from the Story mode included. The demo drops your worms into the Wild West and, in the Story mission, you start with the simple objective of collecting crates (so you get a feel for the place) before coming face-to-face with your opponents for a gun slinging shootout.

And what guns and weapons you have to play with! In the demo, our armoured annelids get to take aim with loads of items from the worms' armoury including the Shotgun, Grenade, Bazooka, Poison Arrow, Sentry Gun, Sniper Rifle, Tail Nail and many more. Plus, there are a few utilities to sample such as Bubble Trouble and the Jet Pack to whiz you around the landscape."

Worms 4: Mayhem is due out on the 29th July on PC, PS2 and Xbox.
