Tencent launching own Auto Chess on iOS and Android

Chinese tech and entertainment giant Tencent has revealed that the company is launching its own Auto Chess game called Chess Rush on iOS and Android.

Chess Rush is a “strategic autobattler” that sees players building formations from 50 heroes before competing against squads of seven.

No release date has currently been announced for Chess Rush, however, Tencent has debuted mobile gameplay footage that states the title will arrive soon.

Partnership

Tencent recently partnered with Dragonest and Drodo Studios to help co-publish the latter’s version of Auto Chess in China.

The game has been developed from Steam’s Auto Chess, of which Valve is releasing its own take on the now hot genre known as DOTA Underlords, with a beta going live in June.

Since launching into public beta, Underlords has surpassed 1.5 million players in one week.
