PS4 Version of Wargroove Almost Ready for a Release Date
Chucklefish has revealed just how close we are to a PS4 port for Wargroove in its latest dev blog post.
British developer and Stardew Valley publisher Chucklefish just brought news that its turn-based tactics game Wargroove is almost ready for a PS4 release date. PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch owners have been enjoying the game since February 1, 2019, and it looks like PS4 owners will get their turn soon.
Chucklefish shared that the port is in its final stages of CERT, the platform holder’s approval system. A release date should be coming soon, though we’re not sure exactly when. This news comes from a recent post in Chucklefish’s dev blog.
The port will have all the same content featured in other versions of the game with the exception of cross-platform multiplayer. This isn’t much of a surprise considering that Sony has only recently begun addressing grievances regarding cross-platform play. However, Wargroove’s PS4 port will support downloading community-made map designs and content sharing across platforms.
The post mentioned obstacles that resulted in development taking longer than anticipated. Technical problems surrounded how multiplayer and content sharing would work. Chucklefish also hinted at issues it wasn’t able to talk about due to a non-disclosure agreement.
We at DualShockers were impressed with what we saw from Wargroove on the Switch. The gameplay is straightforward and satisfying for fans of games like Fire Emblem. Special abilities called “Groove” shake things up but not so much that you can rely on them whenever your brain stops working. This game gets hard, and while that difficulty can feel abrupt it feels damn good to strategize your way to a victory.
We’ll have the port’s release date here at DualShockers when it gets announced. You can purchase Wargroove for the Switch on Amazon in the meantime.
