Drodo Studio who is behind the popular mod Auto Chess in Dota 2 announced during PC Gaming Show E3 showcase that they will release Auto Chess as a standalone title exclusive on the Epic Game Store.
Auto Chess became available on Android devices earlier this year with an alpha version. As that version includes characters from Dota 2, the standalone PC version will include similar characters, classes, items, abilities, and tribes with its own art style.
Valve and League of Legends are also creating their own type of chess game as well, as this proves to be a popular genre. A totally new genre that Drodo Studio might have created? All of these games will fall into the genre; Autobattler.
