Hi everyone, we have another exciting Dev Blog today!
It’s been a pleasure working on Wargroove these past few years – thanks in no small part to our amazingly passionate community who’ve been encouraging throughout development and beyond. As a thank you for all your love and support we’re proud to bring you ‘Wargroove: Double Trouble’, a free (yes, free!) DLC coming to all supported platforms (PC, ...Read more
We teased a reveal a few days ago, and as some of you correctly guessed it’s a new Commander which will be available in the upcoming Wargroove DLC! We can’t share all the DLC details, but we can confirm it’ll be available very soon – and will be completely *free* for anyone who owns the base game!!
Meet Wulfar, an Outlaw Chief. Anyone who’s played through the game’s main campaign should familiar with units from the Outlaw faction – but our heroes have never encountered an Outlaw commander!
Wulfar is the Chief of the largest and oldest Outlaw clan in Aurania. He stands enormously tall and uses his colossal strength to wield his weapon of choice – a massive stone hammer. It may seem a clumsy instrument, but years of training allow him to wield it with expert precision.
He comes from a long line of pirates and thieves – and ...Read more
The seasons are changing, we thought we’d try to grab onto some of that summer sunshine and heat with custom Desert maps! We’ve asked the community to create, submit, and vote on their favorites.
Let’s check them out!
1. Battle for the Ruined Oasis by Nathan – Code: APRBYEGW
This wasn’t actually submitted, but a community map we found browsing the map editor! It’s a simple symmetrical map, with a center section which splits the map. Fog of war adds another layer of strategy to this 2 player tussle.
2. Income War V2.0 by VALAZ45 – Code: ZKYGA4E7

We know a lot of you have been requesting it, so we have some awesome news for you today… Wargroove will be getting it’s very own physical release on October 29, 2019! That’s right, you’ll be able to walk into a shop, and hold Wargroove in your very own hands! (You could even buy it and play it at home if you want).
We’ve teamed up with the folks at Sold Out to release a retail version of Wargroove on both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, called the ‘Wargroove Deluxe Edition‘. What makes it so deluxe...Read more
Today we’re doing a public beta of a long awaited PC feature, modding! We’ve been testing it ourselves, but as you are all much more creative than us, we’d really like your help to break it as much as possible while creating cool mods!
How do I access the beta?
Good question! First of all – back up your save files!
Next, you’ll find the beta is available on Steam by using a beta branch. In your Steam library, right-click on the Wargroove entry and select “Properties”. In the “Betas” tab, you should see a drop down and a textbox. In the textbox, enter the password ‘caesarisagoodboy’ and click “Check Code”.
Happy Wargroove PS4 launch day! Wargroove is now officially available on the PlayStation Store across European and North American regions, so we hope PS4 fans will enjoy delving into the game today – thanks again for all your patience while the PS4 version was finalised.
But that...Read more
Today we wanted to give you a quick status update on how Wargroove’s PS4 version is coming along.
We know a lot of you have been excitedly waiting for it’s release, so we’re pleased to say the wait is nearly over! The PS4 version is now in the final stages of CERT (the platform-holders approval system) and we should be able to announce the release date very soon! As always, we really appreciate your patience and support during the porting process.
Happy Monday everyone!
We’re starting off the week strong with another look at our favourite community-made maps. It’s a great time to get into map creation, with Wargroove currently 33% off in the Steam Summer sale (complete with some nice ...Read more
Happy Friday everyone!
Before we get started, those of you in Japan may be pleased to hear that Wargroove will be at this year’s BitSummit in Kyoto on 1st – 2nd June. You’ll find Wargroove (and Stardew Valley!) at Nintendo’s Indie World stand, so do pop by and play if you’re going to the show.
While this Maps Spotlight had no theme requirements, next time we’d like to set another map design challenge! As many of you know, we’re soon to be launching ...Read more
Things have been busy at Chucklefish HQ, with lots going on behind-the-scenes. We’re currently working on implementing modding into the PC version, as well as other exciting, secret things! The PS4 version is also still on the way, just taking a little longer than anticipated – thanks for everyone’s patience so far! In the meanwhile we’ve also been addressing minor bugfixes. Nintendo Switch players can now find the latest patch update (v1.2.5), which resolves issues when resigning from matches – full version history for all platforms can be found here...Read more
Fresh from a quick trip to GDC, we’re back again with another Community Maps Spotlight to show off some cool maps we’ve seen recently.
Before we get into it, we wanted to take a moment to apologise to those who have been affected by recent issues with online play. We’ve been working on a server-side fix, and believe everything should now be in order, so thanks for your patience while we looked into it. Please do let us know if any issues continue and thanks for bearing with us!
We also recently released a bugfix patch for all platforms (Nintendo Switch v1.2.4 ...Read more
