Might & Magic: Chess Royale offers an abundance of strategic depth to auto battler fans looking for a new challenge. 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.

● Battle in a field of 100 players from around the globe in an epic tactical battle royale.
● Build an army from a range of classic Might & Magic units that grow in power with each round.
● Classes and factions create powerful synergies for extra strategic depth.
● Acquire spells to gain a vital edge and turn the tide of battle.
● Epic art style that evokes the franchise high-fantasy roots.
● Win, lose and evolve your strategy in a series of rapid-fire games.
