Tencent Games is excited to announce that all-new modes and guild systems are coming to popular auto-battler Chess Rush. Ushering in the new modes and guild system will be the latest hero Headreaper. Players will also see new monsters on the battlefield that are fiercer than ever as well as interface improvements to easily see hero stats and a new Gurrul’s Trial.
For the players seeking more casual play, Tencent Games will be introducing a new casual mode Treasure Raiders. Over 30 new and powerful items await players in Treasure Raiders mode, where players will be able to enjoy strategic PvE gameplay. Winning a round will award players a magic dice that they can use to choose from three rewards. If the player does not win the match they’ll still receive a reward but will not be able to choose the item.
Chess Rush fans will also be able to better connect with their friends with the introduction of the Guild System. Players will be able to create and join guilds, complete daily as well as weekly guild quests such as simply signing in or participating in team matches for rewards. Players will also be able to unlock additional slots on their friend’s list. For every level a player gains, they will unlock an additional 10 slots on their friend’s list up to a maximum of 500.
Along with the new modes and guild system comes the arrival of the latest hero Headreaper, who will be replacing Totemface in the hero pool. A fierce Goblin assassin, Headreaper’s specialty is his “Death from Above” ability. Nimbly Headreaper uses his hook to temporarily leave the battlefield, he then descends to attack the enemy with the lowest health with devastating strikes. If Headreaper’s victim is below 30% health his “Death from Above” ability will be even more brutal causing 3 times the damage. When Headreaper successfully lads a fatal blow and his target is defeated 80% of the cooldown and mana from his “Death from Above” ability will be returned.
New features such as the character stats screen have also been added. Players can easily view a hero’s stats by tapping on the hero and can also put their hero knowledge to the test with the new hero quiz. Players can also test their skills in the new Gurrul’s Trial which will task players with recruiting specific heroes as well as activating combos within a match. For players looking to sit back and watch their friends take on opponents, Tencent Games has also introduced the new Observation Mode which will allow players to spectate matches.
Treasure Raiders mode, Headreaper, the all-new Guild System, and Gurrul’s Trial are now available in Chess Rush. To celebrate the updates arriving in Chess Rush, Tencent Games has also extended Season 1 The Rush Begins to October 16 as well as giving players an additional two weeks for Chess Soul quests. Chess Rush is available to play for free on iOS, Android, and PC via Gameloop.
