The cute tactical turn-based strategy game Wargroove is finally heading to the PS4 on July 24, 2019. It will not feature cross-platform play compared to its Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Xbox One versions.
It was announced in their blog post that while they wanted to ensure as much parity between each platform, the PS4 will not include cross-platform multiplayer. Not all are lost as PS4 players can download any of the community-made maps as well as upload their own creations to share with other players in different platforms.
For those unfamiliar, Wargroove is a turn-based strategy that was greatly inspired by games like Advanced Wars, a classic strategy game released back in 2001 for the Gameboy Advance.
It’s pretty much a mix of not only Advanced Wars but also Fire Emblem.
First released on Steam, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One back in February of 2019, Wargroove received mostly positive reviews since its release. Just like the other versions of the game, the PS4 version will feature 4 factions to pick from, 12 commanders, and a talking armored dog.
Here are the other features sent over by developer Chucklefish:
Choose from one of 12+ Commanders from 4 warring factions – the brave Cherrystone Kingdom, the thoughtful Heavensong Empire, the dark Felheim Legion, and nature-inspired Floran Tribes
Strategically use your Commander’s unique “groove” ability to sway the battle in your favor - Dance your way to victory!

Chucklefish also stated that the studio Blitworks — who also worked on the console version of They are Billions — are the ones that worked on this PS4 port. They were also responsible for the Xbox One port which was released back in February.
Wargroove will cost $19.99 and the game’s story campaign is said to clock at around 20 hours to complete.
