Those with a hankering for more Advance-Wars-inspired turn-based strategy action to ring in the New Year are in luck. Developer Chucklefish has revealed that Wargroove's sizeable free Double Trouble DLC will arrive on 6th February.
For anyone in need of a refresher, Wargroove's Double Trouble DLC is, as its name suggests, themed around co-operative play. It introduces a new story campaign designed for two players - which follows the adventures of a band of rogues on a daring heist - and supports couch-based and online co-op, as well as solo play for those without immediate access to friends.
It also brings two new units - the stealthy Thieves and long-distance Riflemen - plus three new Outlaw Commanders, each with their own unique Grooves. There's Wulfar, Vesper, and "troublemaker twins" Errol and Orla, who count as a single Commander.
The pixely dog warrior tactics game Wargroove is getting a free DLC next month centered around a new co-op focused campaign. The Double Trouble DLC is dropping on February 6th. Just in time, I suppose, for the day that co-op life partners celebrate together. Double Trouble also adds new commanders, units, and arcade missions.
Cute turn-based tactics romp Wargroove is due a rather chunky expansion next month, letting players embark on a new co-op story campaign—also playable solo—and several other new additions, all for free. Give the launch trailer a watch above.
Double Trouble introduces a new playable faction, the criminal Outlaws, and a trio of new commanders. It's actually four characters, but Orla and Errol are twins who always fight alongside each other as a single commander unit.
All the teal-haired crooks seem to be Scottish in Wargroove's universe, which is still a huge step up from only letting us be dwarves or the occasional Doctor Who. We've got range, you know.
Alongside the commanders, you'll be able to field two new units, thieves and riflemen, and try out new arcade missions, competitive quickplay maps, public and private multiplayer lobbies and a new volcano theme. The new theme, along with other new bits and bobs, will also be available in the editor.
Last year, Malindy Hetfeld gave the base game a 78 in her Wargroove review. "Brimming character and imagination, Wargroove occasionally loses its groove over long-winded core gameplay," she wrote. I got myself the Switch version, and it really benefits from being playable on the couch or while I'm having a lazy morning in bed.
Wargroove: Double Trouble will be available on Steam on February 6.
