Ubisoft has announced that its fresh twist on the popular auto battler genre, Might & Magic: Chess Royale, is now available as a free download on PC, iOS, and Android.
Set in the classic Might & Magic universe, the game fuses the large scale epic PvP action of a battle royale with a deep strategy element. Pitting 100 players against each other in quick-fire matches, Might & Magic: Chess Royale requires players to develop their tactics to analyze, adapt and annihilate in a field of 100 opponents to emerge victorious.
Featuring a cast of well-known characters from the Might & Magic mythos, all recreated in the series’ signature high-fantasy art style, players recruit from a roster of units, including Dryads, Druids and Vampires, to dominate their opponents.
Gameplay takes place in rapid 10-minute rounds with players spending gold between duels to assemble their squad from a random pool of units. Once deployed in custom formation on the battlefield, the clock counts down before players unleash hell on their opponents in the hope of surviving to fight again in the next round of the battle royale.
Players must decide whether to keep investing gold early on smaller units or save up for late-game titans such as the all-powerful Archangel. As matches progress, players choose between recruiting even mightier units or merging existing ones to create even heavier-hitting versions. Synergies between units and factions need to be monitored to activate powerful buffs that can tip the balance of power.
Putting the magic firmly into Might & Magic, the game also gives players the ability to acquire spells from a rotating spell pool, which can turn the tide of battle at the very moment they’re staring defeat in the face.
You can download Might & Magic: Chess Royale for free on Uplay PC, or on mobile from the App Store and Google Play.
