Chess has been among us since the 15th century, although its roots can be traced back to the 7th century in India. Now, centuries later, Chess Club brings the sharpest version of this game to VR with stunning visuals to relive the realistic experience of a chess match or to let yourself into a more magical world. With several AI difficulties and different time rules available, you can customize the experience to your own skills. The multiplayer mode allows the players to interact with other players and friends through voice chat and avatars, offering a close-to-reality experience in VR. For even greater immersion, the entire game can be played using hand tracking!
