“Chessmaster 10th Edition is the ’must-have’ chess program for the whole family,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing, Ubisoft. “Beginners will learn at a comfortable pace, and veterans of the game can take it to the Grand Master level. Studies have shown that chess improves critical thinking, concentration and creativity, and Chessmaster 10th Edition is a great way to learn and master the game of chess.“

Chessmaster 10th Edition is a landmark for the franchise and features the largest and most compelling upgrade ever to both gameplay and graphics.

Improvements include:

  • New, easy-to-navigate interface with drop-down menus that are loaded with coaching options.
  • New online module that provides a ranking system, create-a-tournament, teaching tools, chess chat and more.
  • New Chessmaster Academy, featuring personalized instruction on everything from basic moves to advanced strategy as taught by some of the world’s most famous players – including International Master Josh Waitzkin and Grand Master Larry Christiansen.

“Chessmaster 10th Edition provides the perfect avenue for people of all ages and levels to learn and improve their skills,“ said Josh Waitzkin. “I had a great time working closely with the development team on the Chessmaster Academy and know that fans will be impressed with the high-level quality and detail in the game.“

Additionally, the wide appeal of Chessmaster 10th Edition will attract both brand-new and experienced chess players. Beginning and casual players will be entertained by animated chess pieces, a simplified learning section and skill-appropriate AI-controlled opponents. Intermediate players can take advantage of the opportunity to hone their skills by learning the best attacking moves as taught by chess champion Larry Christiansen in the Academy.
