Pantheon DLC Out Now - Environment + Chess Set



Hey everyone,

We're really excited to share that the first DLC pack for Chess Ultra is available now! The Pantheon Game Pack includes a brand new environment and also an exclusive chess set that can be used in various combinations with the existing base sets.

The environment is an exquisitely detailed model of the Pantheon in Rome, bringing a touch of ancient history to Chess Ultra. The pack also includes a hand crafted set of bronze cast Roman chessmen.

We hope you enjoy the new DLC and we'll have more updates about future content soon.

Thanks for your ongoing support!
