Updating one of the world's favorite board games, Online Chess Kingdoms for the PSP introduces all new modes of play, detailed fantasy graphics and groundbreaking infrastructure support in which factions battle for control of territory in a persistent online world.
Online Chess Kingdoms is set in an ancient mystic land composed of five different warring factions. Players choose to compete as one of the five kingdoms with 3D animated chess sets, complete with powerful magicians, fearsome warriors, and ethereal spirits as they do battle with classic chess action to determine the fate of this otherworldly universe.
From the fantasy to the online world, Online Chess Kingdoms brings classic chess action to gamers nationwide with a persistent online world in which players join factions and engage in matches to claim territory from their opponents. Strategically pursuing areas that will give their faction the most influence over the online kingdom, teams work together to expand their nation and limit the growth of the other four teams. By claiming neutral regions and going head to head with other online players in contested areas, players become part of an ongoing struggle for conquest that is played out on the checkered squares of the chess board. Online leaderboards document the contributions of each player to their faction, separating the kings from the pawns in this constant struggle for supremacy.
Online Chess Kingdoms will launch Fall 2006.
