Wargroove, Chucklefish’s reply to the 3DS traditional Advance Wars, will help cross-platform play between PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One when it launches February 1.
The builders confirmed cross-platform help could be included at launch in a tweet this week.
“Sometimes your friends aren’t in the same faction as you, and that’s okay,” they riffed.
Naturally, this implies you’ll have the ability to play Wargroove on-line in head-to-head battles, however Chucklefish can be supporting on-line co-op and asynchronous modes, one thing like a traditional Play By Email system. And you’ll have the ability to play alongside or towards your Switch- or Xbox-equipped associates.
Unfortunately, cross-platform play gained’t be accessible for PlayStation 4, at the very least at launch (the PlayStation model comes out later, on an as-yet-unannounced date). There’s cause to be barely hopeful, although, since Sony has indicated that it’s opening cross-platform help on the PlayStation.
The excellent news, although, is that Wargroove additionally helps native co-op, and it lets you utterly customise the ruleset for all of your multiplayer battles.
