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