Drodo Studio have announced that Drodo Studio’s Auto Chess is coming to PlayStation 4 during PlayStation’s State of Play livestream.
The game originally launched as Dota Auto Chess in 2019, before a spin-off void of DOTA 2 characters was released later. Acting as an alternative to MOBAs, players choose their “chess piece” in a draft format, then pit them against their opponents in auto battles.
You can find the State of Play trailer below.
You can find the full rundown (via the Epic Games Store) below.
Develop strategies in order to deploy the ideal chess piece army to defeat the other players in the lobby. You use the chess pieces from a shared pool to create your own lineup, and then they enter the battle phase and fight each other automatically. You will be facing against seven other chess players during each match, while defending your own chess board. Meanwhile, your troops will also be attacking the enemy’s army on their chessboard. Your goal is to be the last person standing.
Starring-up Chess Pieces
In order to form a lineup, your first step should be to strengthen your pieces. Since the pieces in the game have class synergy, and are divided into 1-star, 2-star and 3-star tiered units, you need upgrade your chess pieces’ level. The rule of upgrading is usually “3 for 1”, which means three 1-star pieces can be combined into one 2-star piece. Three 2-star pieces can be combined into a 3-star piece. Pick your favorite chess pieces in the Store and try starring them up!
Lineup & Synergies
To defeat your opponent, you also need to achieve the maximum profit with the lineup. In addition to star levels, chess pieces also have the race and class synergies. Different chess pieces with the same race or class will trigger the corresponding synergy which help to make your chess pieces stronger and more powerful. Let’s take Cave Clan as an example. When two chess pieces from the Cave Clan are deployed on the chessboard, they will both increase all allies’ HP by 100. As more and more chess pieces enter the battlefield, the player can overlap synergies, and create their own unique chess lineup.
Auto Chess is available on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store), Android, iOS, and October 31st on PlayStation 4
