Previously accessible only by way of PlayStation® Network and Microsoft Xbox Live® Arcade, Worms™ Collection will include Worms™, Worms™ 2: Armageddon, and Worms™ Ultimate Mayhem, plus six additional DLC packs, at just $29.99 MSRP.

Also previewed at E3, Worms™: The Revolution Collection pushes the Worms™ series into overdrive with stunning visuals and an arsenal of apocalyptic arms. Loaded with new features, dynamic effects and a host of explosive missions, Worms™: The Revolution Collection combines Worms™ Revolution and Worms 2: Armageddon with eight bonus DLC packs.

For serious FPS fans, The Serious Sam™ Collection includes enhanced visuals, lush landscapes, and improved textures and character models in HD, and is scheduled to release on July 16, 2013. Follow the notorious hero, Sam ‘Serious’ Stone, in his quest to destroy the alien overlord, Mental, in the most action-packed compendium of Serious Sam games ever.
