Ubisoft are launching an auto chess battle royale this month – Rock Paper Shotgun
Last week I joked that the subsequent Frictional sport could possibly be an auto chess or battle royale sport. Joke’s on me as a result of Ubisoft are those doing that. Both without delay, even. Might & Magic: Chess Royale is launching later this month as a mashup of the 2 genres that 2019 did practically (however not fairly, it appears) to dying.
The new Might & Magic sport is a by-product of the flip-based mostly technique sequence with the standard fantasy folks and creatures. Instead of technique battles from the mainline sequence, you’ll use items from different Might & Magic video games in your board of auto battling chess items.
Ubisoft are paring down the standard battle royale expertise into shorter classes nearer to what you’d count on of an auto chess sport, however nonetheless shorter but than Dota Underlords or Teamfight Tactics. Chess Royale may have fast matches of round 10 minutes. Sensible, on condition that it’s launching for each PC and cellular the place shorter play classes are extra widespread.
Like different auto battler video games, Chess Royale may have you be taught and make the most of synergies between sure items and factions.
There are 99 different gamers in every match, although it’s not fairly clear if being knocked from the match operates like a event bracket or, like Tetris Royale, has some type of system for gamers to deliberately goal each other in a strategic method.
Might & Magic: Chess Royale will likely be launching at no cost (plus microtransactions) on January 30th for desktop and cellular . You can pre-register earlier than this month’s launch on Ubisoft’s web site.
