Wargroove is Coming to the PlayStation 4 Very Soon

Get your Wargroove on next week, PlayStation 4 owners.

Wargroove is coming to the PlayStation 4 next Tuesday. If you missed this turn-based strategy game when it came to the Switch, PC, and Xbox One in early 2019, here's your chance to play war.

Chucklefish's community manager Katy Ellis announced Wargroove's imminent PlayStation 4 drop earlier this afternoon on the official PlayStation blog. "The whole team here at Chucklefish truly appreciates all the support you've given throughout the game's development, and patience you've had while Wargroove made its way to PS4," she writes. "When July 23 rolls around, we hope you'll love playing it as much as we enjoyed making it!"

Though Wargroove opts for swords, spears, and battle puppies in lieu of tanks and guns, it plays a good deal like Nintendo's long-neglected Advance Wars series of turn-based strategy games. Several Commanders with unique talents (their "Grooves," which they can use to turn the tide of a battle in a pinch) take charge of units with varying strengths and weaknesses on the battlefield. Securing war funds and purchasing soldiers by the dozens is a major part of winning a skirmish. By contrast, Advance Wars' sister series, Fire Emblem, is more about training up individual soldiers and trying not to lose them.

Wargroove also offers a deep toolbox for anyone interested in designing and sharing their own maps. You can download and play other people's maps, though you're advised to do so with caution. If Super Mario Maker 2's user-made levels carry an unspoken message, that message is "Most people design games like Satan."

We have some Wargroove guides and tips that will help you out across all versions of the game. Good luck out there, soldier.
