Chessmaster 9000 coming soon

Ubi Soft's new version of the long-running chess game has gone gold and will ship later this month.


Ubi Soft has announced that Chessmaster 9000 is complete and will arrive in North American stores on August 27. The first Chessmaster game appeared on the PC in 1986, and the venerable series is characterized by its serious tools and tutorials that help players improve their chess game. Chessmaster 9000 features online play on the service, replays of 800 classic chess matches, innovative tutorials, and improved 3D graphics. The game's instructional and resource material spans two CDs.

The previous Chessmaster version, Chessmaster 8000 , was released by Mattel Interactive in late 2000. For more information, check out our previous coverage of the Chessmaster games.
