Chucklefish and Robotality have announced the upcoming release of Wargroove 2, the sequel to the acclaimed turn-based strategy game. Wargroove 2 will be available on both PC and Nintendo Switch, and will feature the series’ signature pixel art and challenging combat, as well as an all-new story-rich campaign, advanced tiered Groove system, and a new roguelike game mode called “Conquest.”
Set on the shores of Aurania, Wargroove 2 sees a new faction unearth forbidden relics that could have catastrophic consequences. Players will take to the field, sea, and sky with a cast of new commanders, using their strategic wits to wage turn-based war. The game will also introduce five new unit types to master, and allow players to level-up ordinary units by picking up special items.
Developed by German indie studio Robotality, in partnership with Chucklefish, Wargroove 2 promises to bring a fresh perspective to the franchise while staying true to its passionate community of fans. The game is set to launch on PC and Nintendo Switch, with local and online co-op and multiplayer modes for up to four players. Follow Wargroove 2’s development progress on Discord and Twitter.
