Wargroove: Double Trouble Free DLC Marches onto PlayStation 4

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4 | No Comments

Wargroove’s first big DLC expansion, Double Trouble, released earlier this year on every platform except PlayStation 4. After some delay, the PlayStation 4 version of the free DLC will finally rally onto the battlefield on August 4th. It will be free to download on the PlayStation Store.

Double Trouble features an all new 15+ hour campaign that can be played entirely in co-op, including local and online. The campaign revolves around the new faction, the plundering outlaws, who feature three unique new commanders each with their own groove powers.

The DLC also includes 15 new Arcade missions as well as competitive online Quick Play and multiplayer lobbies for public and private matches. A volcanic map theme has been added for even hotter matches, and the map editor has received some welcoming updates. The DLC also includes balance adjustments and two new units, thieves and riflemen.

The primary reason for the platform delay was a desire for cross-platform play between all Wargroove players. Cross-play is supported on every platform of Wargroove, and the addition of multiplayer lobbies should improve the online experience.

“We’re very happy to finally complete our vision of one big happy Wargroove community as PS4 Wargroove players can now play with those on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC! From the very beginning, we knew that the multiplayer aspect of Wargroove was a huge part of the experience, and that it made the game very suitable for cross-play amongst all platforms,” said Rodrigo Braz Monteiro, Chucklefish CTO and lead programmer. “Our thanks to the Blitworks team who has been working on bringing the DLC to PS4. Thanks for your patience, and hope you’ll have fun!”

Wargroove is also available on PC (Steam), Switch, and Xbox One. It’s rated E10+.

Wargroove Lets Loose the Pups of War on PlayStation 4

Posted by | News, PlayStation 4 | No Comments

One of our favorite games of the year has finally arrived on the one modern console it wasn’t available on. Tactical strategy indie game Wargroove has arrived on PlayStation 4. It’s available on the PlayStation Store for $19.99.

Developed and published by Pixel-loving indie developer Chucklefish, Wargroove is a spiritual successor to the Advance Wars series. It’s set in a fantasy realm of multiple warring factions, including the Cherrystone Kingdom, the Felheim Legion, and the Heavensong Empire. Armies move across the battlefield in a chess-like grid, capturing villages, recruiting more forces, and battling in forests, mountains, and seas. Each faction is lead by a commander with their own special ability, with each faction having four different commanders to choose from.

The game features a full story campaign as the Felheim Legion invades Cherrystone Kingdom, and they must recruit help from neighboring nations. Other modes include symmetrical skirmishes with various commanders and dozens of one-turn challenges in puzzle mode. Up to four players can join in online multiplayer, and you can build your own maps in the level editor. Read our full review of Wargroove here.

Wargroove is now available on PlayStation 4, as well as PC (Steam), Switch, and Xbox One. It’s rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence.

Wargroove Review

Available On: PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, Xbox One

Tactical strategy games have seen a resurgence in recent years, with excellent reboots and sequels for series like XCOM and Fire Emblem. But it’s pixel-perfect indie studio Chucklefish that has taken up the mantle of re-imagining the Advance War series (which had inspired Fire Emblem’s initial localization outside Japan).

Indie games have long filled the void of classic genres and gameplay styles left behind by bigger studios. Wargroove is the perfect example of an indie studio rebooting a beloved series while infusing their own story, with several modern improvements and an astonishing amount of content.
