Released on February 1st for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, Wargroove lets players control different factions and Commanders for each group to lead their armies to victory by taking turns to dominate the missions. Chucklefish, the developer and publisher of the game, held an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit to answer players’ questions so far, and one of the most common questions to be asked was whether or not there’d be any post-launch support for the game. The developer said it already has plans for supporting the game now that it’s out and will add free content while fixing existing systems.
“Quality of life fixes coming soon, we've heard you all there,” Chucklefish said. “Free content updates are planned too.”
An area Chucklefish specifically mentioned it would look into was one of the sole complaints in our recent review: The speed of characters moving around the map. Other similar games like the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars series have settings which make units move quicker around the map, though Wargroove only has an option to hold down one button to speed things along. It just so happens that button is also the one which pulls up information on units and terrain, so players can essentially pause the game in the middle of an enemy turn by speeding things up.
“Look for quicker skipping of battle cutscenes, an option for faster map movement locked on by default, online play with bots, some tweaks to fog of war, and some other bits and bobs,” the developer continued.0comments
In a separate comment about creating a modern version of Wargroove – the features units like swordsmen, mages, and winged beats – Chucklefish said a modern game seems unlikely. The developer did reiterate its previous comment about free content updates and said DLC was also in the works, though it wasn’t fully clear if that content will be free as well.
