Tencent Games has announced today that the first seasonal gameplay for Chess Rush has arrived. ‘The Rush Begins’ will give players the chance to earn daily bonus rewards with the Chess Soul pass. Alongside the arrival of the first season, the brand new Undead heroes Stinger and Gluttony have been revealed as well as new characters and all-new gameboards.

Along with the arrival of season 1 players will also be able to add the latest Undead characters Stinger and Gluttony.
When researching an abandoned relic, Stinger stumbled upon a cloak bearing a rose on its hood. Unaware, Stinger put on the cloak the rose sprung to life and it’s thorns attached to her. The soul within the cloak attached itself to Stinger’s soul and although she tried, she was unable to remove it. Now reawakened, Stinger is no longer living but is also not dead.
