Wargroove Is Getting a Free Heist-Themed Co-Op DLC Called Double Trouble

Chucklefish will also introduce some new tools for custom maps and game-wide balance changes.

When your desire for some Advance Wars-style gameplay rears up again, there'll likely be a good reason to revisit Wargroove. Chucklefish has announced that it will release Wargroove: Double Trouble, a free DLC with a new campaign and new game-wide features. It's coming to Wargroove on the PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in the near future.

Chucklefish runs down the list of Double Trouble additions and tweaks coming to Wargroove over at its official blog. Double Trouble's chief addition is a new story campaign intended to be played in co-op (though it's also playable solo) that focuses on a group of Outlaws. Led by three commander units—grizzled warrior Wulfar, twins Errol and Orla, and the whip-happy Vesper—the Outlaw clan isn't really on the warpath, per se. Instead, they're looking to pull off a heist in the wake of a kidnapping.

Presumably, some of the new mechanics being introduced to Wargroove in Double Trouble will factor into this heist. In addition to new thief and rifleman units, the Wargroove editor is receiving a number of improvements that should make for more complicated missions. "Gizmos" such as levers and chests will let map makers turn elements of maps on or off, and new modifiers will allow for weaker and stronger (or outright invulnerable) units and buildings.

More specifics on Double Trouble's editor changes and details changes to the game's overall balance can be found in the developer post. There's no specific release window for Double Trouble, but Chucklefish says the DLC is "in the final testing phase" and will receive a release date and trailer soon.

On top of new Wargroove content, Chucklefish is working on a top-down RPG called Witchbrook. Last month, Chucklefish responded to multiple accusations of exploitative labor practices from individuals who contributed work to the developer's 2016 title, Starbound.

In USgamer's review of Wargroove, Kat found it to be "almost enough to fill the Advance Wars-sized hole" in a turn-based tactics fan's heart. For more on the game, check out USG's Wargroove guide for beginners.
