Sega have announced that the latest Worms title will take advantage of Xbox's online gaming network Xbox Live, allowing up to four players to fight it out in head-to-head battles.

As you'd expect from Worms, there's a hefty selection of crazy weapons on offer, ranging from a bizarre Homing Pigeon Launcher, to a 50-Stone Canary.

Worms Forts Under Siege is due for release on the Xbox by the end of the year, with versions for PlayStation 2 and PC due around the same time.
