Launched on PlayStation on June 21 (2017) by RipStone, Chess Ultra is still promising to be the greatest strategy chess game of all time, offering the ultimate chess experience with stunning 4K visuals, Grandmaster approved AI and full VR compatibility. Also, Chess Ultra is one of the cross-platform games I own, being also available on Steam, HTC Vive, Oculus, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
It is one of the few games that bring Xbox and PlayStation together.
I have discovered the game last week, when I published Five PlayStation Games You Should Buy Today And It Will Cost You Less Than 40€, and I also decided to buy it during writing that article because of 4 things: 4K, VR, online multiplayer, and the fact that I loved chess when I was a kid. The price was a bonus, it cost me more a set of roman pieces that I bought with the game to feed a bigger kid now. 🙂
Here are 2 minutes of Chess Ultra’s look and feel, and also a closer look of the Pantheon Game Pack, released on Sept 20, 2017, that I bought with the game for the fun of playing with a real army.
I have already played some games, and now I am involved in 6 single games and 3 tournaments at the same time. It is not time-consuming, at least not for me – I am connecting 2 times per day for about 10 minutes to check it out -. One of the features of the game that you can set from the beginning is the duration of the game, and I am only doing games that a player has 24h to make his move, or else… 🙂
I will be back with a review after I will play also the VR version, but, until that, I will let you with the soundtrack list of the game available here. It’s amazing. Meanwhile, please do use the comment section and tell me what do you think about Chess Ultra. Do you like it? Do you have it already? Don’t be a stranger and let’s make this blog a better one! 🙂
Note: I will try to play at least two new PlayStation games every week and share the experience with you. I will communicate one of them every Tuesday, and the other one on Thursday (The VR Day), and it will be, of course, a PlayStation VR game. 🙂
