Auto Chess PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Strategy game phenomenon Auto Chess will make a move to the PlayStation 4 in 2020, developer Dragonest announced at a fan event in Tokyo overnight. The title – which started life as a Dota 2 mod – is one of the deepest tactical titles around, and is a huge hit on streaming platforms like Twitch. The studio hopes that making the move to consoles will attract new players to the format.

Still confused about what you actually do in the game? Don’t worry, we were as well, but the above YouTube video gives a little more insight into the uber-popular “auto-battler” genre. It’ll be interesting to see how the format is adapted to the DualShock 4, as it's clearly been designed for mouse and keyboard play.
