Command the Land, Sea, and Sky
Three years have passed since Queen Mercia and her allies defeated the ancient adversaries and restored peace to Aurania. Now, an ambitious foreign faction is unearthing forbidden technologies that could have catastrophic consequences for the land and its people. Battle your way through three Campaigns following one interweaving story. Only bold decisions, smart resourcing, and tactical know-how can repair a fractured realm…
All-New Groove System
Take down your enemies and deliver the final blow with your Commander’s “Groove,” a special skill unique to each Commander that can turn the tides of battle. Wargroove 2 introduces a new Groove system to the mix. Increase your chances of victory by supercharging your Commander’s Groove ability to unleash an even more powerful attack!
