Last week saw the release of the Advance War-esque tactics game Wargroove, which was met with glowing praise. Now, just a couple days after launch, England-based developer Chucklefish has announced that new updates and content are on the way.
In a new blog post on the game's official website, Chucklefish confirmed that sales of the game have "already covered the cost of development" in just three days. New improvements are on the way, some of which should be out quite soon.
According to the post, a post-launch patch is currently going through approval. The update is said to introduce a number of bug fixes and small improvements like addressing issues that cause online multiplayer maps against AI to break, spectating online on Fog of War maps to not work, and more.
In addition to short-term plans, the studio outlined a plethora of quality of life fixes. Some of these include various ways to quickly skip battle scenes, keeping fast map movement enabled without holding a button, displaying S rank requirements, and more. There's no time-frame on when they'll officially be implemented into the game.
Chucklefish also confirmed that modding support is coming soon and that work is underway on a PS4 version. Additionally, it's "looking into a larger content update, DLC and more."
In our Wargroove review, we called it "a delight to play" because Chucklefish "made meaningful improvements that make this both a satisfying answer to starved Advance Wars fans' wishes and a genuinely great experience on its own merits."
Wargroove is out now for PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
