Just under two years after being created as a Dota 2 mod, Auto Chess has been developed into a stand-alone game and released across multiple platforms- now including the PS4.
Developed by Drodo Studios, the official exit from early access into the free to play space was marked with this launch trailer, showing off what players can expect.
PlayStation will get access to exclusive content, as well as something just for Plus members:
Auto Chess hasn’t forgotten about you, PlayStation Plus members. The awesome (and exclusive) chess player, Chiyome Mochizuki will be free to redeem for all PlayStation Plus members on the PlayStation Store. And that’s not all. Once you visit the Auto Chess in-game store, you’ll find it packed with even more exclusive content like chess players Matryoshka and Yi Sun-sin as well as Goblin Workshop Chessboard. Matryoshka, Yi Sun-sin and the Goblin Workshop Chessboard will be available for purchase by all PlayStation players starting on official launch day January 27!
The popularity of auto battler games has grown in a very short amount of time. Drodo Studios developed the Dota 2 mod that would become Auto Chess in the beginning of 2019 and by the end of that same year Valve, Riot, and even Blizzard had released their own entries into the genre.
Auto Chess is free to play and available on PC, mobile, and now of course PlayStation 4
