Auto Chess

Dragonest will release a PlayStation 5 version of free-to-play game Auto Chess on March 30, the developer announced.

Auto Chess is currenly available for PlayStation 4, PC via the Epic Games Store, iOS via the App Store, and Android via Google Play.

Here is an overview of the PlayStation 5 version, via the PlayStation Blog:

Hold On for Haptic Feedback

Let’s talk about the DualSense controller first. We realized that the DualSense wireless controller’s haptic feedback would allow us to give an extra punch to those well-deserved moments of celebration. Star up a chess piece, win a battle, defeat an enemy player: the thrill from performing a successful move or game-finishing victory will be boosted by a corresponding jolt from the DualSense.

Unreal Load Times and the Power of PlayStation 5

With PlayStation 5’s faster load times, you’ll reach the login screen the moment you launch the game and be on the battlefield before you know it. Say goodbye to long load times (and sadly the chance to mentally prepare your first move before the match’s start!). See an example below:

We’ve taken the opportunity to enhance the visuals of Auto Chess. Next-level visuals will bring the world of Auto Chess to life with ultra-clear definition and seamlessly smooth graphics.
