Developer and publisher Ripstone Games has announced that it’ll be releasing Chess Ultra for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this Spring, complete with VR and 4K support. You can check out a trailer above.

In a press release, the studio noted that this is the first in-house 4K title from Ripstone, and has been built from the ground up with Unreal Engine 4.

Chess Ultra is a sequel to Ripstone’s original million-selling 2012 title Pure Chess, and is a massive improvement on the original title in every way, with crisp, beautiful 4K visuals across a whole variety of environments and chess sets.

Ripstone’s first in-house developed game, built from the ground up using Unreal Engine 4, features a range of single-player and online game modes, including 10 different AI levels to conquer all the way up to Grandmaster-approved levels.

When players take the game online, they’ll quickly find their friends and other Chess Ultra players in ranked, regular, Fischer and Marathon matches.

We’ll update our readers when a release date is announced.
