Wargroove supports multiplayer up to 4 human players in either online or local play. You can also add up to 4 AI players if the map/campaign supports it.[1]

Local Play[edit]

Local (or "Offline") is available for up to 4 human players. Players can play in hot-seat mode or their own controllers.

You can set the turn timer to either default (Asynchronous) or to a set time limit.

When selecting Commanders, you can assign which ones you want to be Human players and which ones that are AI players. You have to select the commander for the option to appear.

Nintendo Switch in handheld mode[edit]

Pass the Nintendo Switch back and forth in handheld mode.

By using handheld mode players can 'hide' what their battlefield looks like when playing with 'fog of war' enabled.


There are several modes for Online play.


Quickplay matches you with any available player in the quick-play queue. Quickplay is limited to 1v1.

There is a hidden rating for each player, to better match players with opponents of the same skill.

There is currently no way to determine or view your rating.

Hosted match[edit]

A hosted match is a game lobby started by a player. Players can then join the player with Join by Code in the multiplayer menu.

The host player can choose a variety of settings, but the available settings are limited by the map creator.
