Animoca Brands recently initiated the phased launch of Anichess, a Web3 chess strategy video game developed in collaboration with Chess.com and the legendary five-time World Chess Champion, Magnus Carlsen.
What is Anichess?
Anichess is an intriguing strategy game that incorporates unique gameplay components, such as magic spell mechanisms for a variety of offensive, defensive, and counter tactics, with the fundamental rules of chess. The game also has a complex and captivating storyline. Player-versus-environment (PvE) gameplay is available during the first launch phase. Later in Q1 2024, the second phase launch will include player-versus-player (PvP) gameplay.
Anichess wants to provide an experience that increases chess’s appeal and accessibility for all players. Anichess aims to reach a wider audience and expand the chess horizon by collaborating closely with partner chess Grandmasters and game creators. This audience may include individuals who love strategy games but are not regular chess players.
Magnus Carlsen is just one of an elite group of chess players that Anichess has put together. Other players include Anish Giri, the Dutch grandmaster and current world number seven; David Howell, the English grandmaster and commentator; David Antón Guijarro, the Spanish grandmaster and current world number five; and Sopiko Guramishvili, the renowned author, woman grandmaster, and Georgian-Dutch international master.
Anichess is available for play at www.anichess.com for free right now.
