Wargroove, the turn-based tactics game by Chucklefish, will feature cross-play when it launches for PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on Friday 1st February, the developer has announced.
Chucklefish announced the news via Twitter:
Sometimes your friends aren’t in the same faction as you, and that’s okay!
No need to start a war, keep your band together with multiplayer cross-platform play on PC, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One, when Wargroove launches on February 1st! pic.twitter.com/Z6svC6MyL7

This news will be music to the ears of players who are planning to buy the game on a different platform than their friends, and it will also mean that online play should have pretty quick matchmaking, as there will be a much bigger pool of players available to be matched together. Wargroove will support both co-op and competitive PvP multiplayer for up to four players, both online and locally.
The PS4 version of Wargroove will be released at a currently announced later date, and it remains to be seen whether cross-play will be supported for Sony’s console too. Of course, Sony has been very reluctant to get involved with the whole cross-play thing for as long as the discussion has been going on, but they are showing signs of giving in to player pressure, having recently enabled cross-play for Rocket League.
Wargroove will release on Friday 1st February for PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A PS4 release will come at a later date.
