Chessmaster coming to Live

We checked.

It might not be happening immediately, but Ubisoft is clearly seeing the whole board when it tells us that Chessmaster Live will be released on XBLA in January.

Chessmaster on Live will offer hundreds of AI opponents in "ELO-ranked matches", whatever that means, voice-chat and Live Vision functions and five "original chess variants", including a "Message Chess" version which allows you to spread a game out over "days, weeks or even months".

"Chessmaster Live is not only a comprehensive chess program, but it is also one that has expanded beyond the traditional game to include exciting features for fans, both old and new," says Ubisoft's Peter Helm.

Ubisoft already published various Chessmaster games here including the recently released duo of Chessmaster: The Art of Learning on DS and Chessmaster: Grandmaster Edition on PC.
