Auto Chess is returning back to its root with a new MOBA in the market. It is the game that launched the auto battler genre in the first place. The return of the game does not take it back to the fan-made mode of Dota 2. However, it is getting its own MOBA game with several characters. The upcoming game was recently revealed through a trailer by the official publisher of Auto Chess, Dragonest.

The CEO of Dragonest, Loring Lee said that as Wong Kar-Wei said in the Grandmaster ‘never give up faith’, and making a MOBA game is our faith. The CEO also said that we launched our first mobile MOBA in 2015, Fight for Freedom, and that was just the beginning. The organization did not have its last laugh and it will release the new game very soon.
The Auto Chess MOBA
The Auto Chess MOBA looks similar to all the other mobile games with the same genre. Similarly, the game has a top-down view on the screen with the movement wheel attached on the left side of the screen. The skills mapped buttons are placed on the right side of the screen for better use. What makes the game unique is its day-night feature. During the game, the map witnesses multiple times of the day, where players in the night go through the fog of war. The game will feature the same items and heroes present in the Auto Chess title.
Availability of Auto Chess
The game is available on multiple platforms. The Android and Apple users can download the game free of cost from their App Stores. Similarly, PC users can download the game from the EPIC Games Store. The developers also launched the game on the PlayStation 4 and 5. However, the game had a price tag of $9.99 for its console branch. Auto Chess is not available for Xbox and Nintendo users, but it seems like they will have access to the game too in the future.
Origin of Auto Chess
Auto Chess actually came out from Drodo Studio’s Dota Auto Chess. In 2019, Valve launched a user-made mode in Dota that caught hype in the year. After multiple success times with Dota 2, multiple publishers reached out to Drodo Studio to make a standalone game for the Auto Chess mode. At first, the developers of the game agreed to create a mobile game in the collaboration of Dragonest and Dota 2 items. The game also used the hero models from Dota 2 for the lookalike characters.
Drodo was the company that initially helped Valve to develop Dota and come up with the team fight tactics. Later on, Riot Games jumped in the competition and released League of Legends, which became one of the most famous games. However, now, the organization is planning to release its own MOBA and fans are desperately waiting for it.
