We knew it would happen eventually. Auto Chess is no longer alone in the world. There’s another. This week, Valve announced their own auto-chess game mode: Underlords. Right now, anyone with the Dota 2’s Battle Pass can check out the game mode, but sometime next week, the game will go free for all as an open beta.
For those who are unfamiliar. The basic gist is this:
You buy units, you fight the enemies players, and then you use gold to buy and combine more units. From there, it’s just a battle of wits and survival. It’s still early in development, but it’s a start.
