Chucklefish, in partnership with Robotality, has announced Wargroove 2, a sequel to its turn-based tactics game. A release window has not yet been shared, but it’ll be on Switch in the future.
Wargroove builds on the 2019 game with new features. One new feature is Conquest, a roguelike single-player game mode with permanent choices. There’ll also be a new story set three years after Queen Mercia and her allies were defeated.
Here’s an official overview:
Wargroove is back! Embark on an all-new adventure, filled with unlikely friendships, unknown adversaries, and ugly revenge plots. Wage war against your foes with a cast of new Commanders and utilize their new tiered ‘groove’ ability system to sway the fight in your favor. Design and share maps, cutscenes, and campaigns with easy-to-use editors and in-depth customization tools.
Three years have passed since Queen Mercia and her allies defeated the ancient adversaries and restored peace to Aurania. Now, an ambitious foreign faction is unearthing forbidden technologies that could have catastrophic consequences for the land and its people. Battle your way through 3 Campaigns following 1 interweaving story. Only bold decisions, smart resourcing, and tactical know-how can repair a fractured realm…
