Written by: / / 5 Comments


Liverpool-based publisher Ripstone has done a fantastic job of getting Pure Chess on as many platforms as possible, and next week VooFoo Studios’ visually stunning chess title will make the transition to PS4 via the PlayStation Network.

The game is out on April 15th in North America and April 16th in European territories, and will cost £4.99/€5.99/$7.99 for the original version of Pure Chess or £9.99/€11.99/$14.99 for the Complete Bundle which includes the game and all DLC released so far. PlayStation Plus subscribers can enjoy a special discount at launch although Ripstone hasn’t specified the exact figure as yet.

The publisher claims that Pure Chess on PS4 is the “definitive version” of the game due to a number of visual upgrades that elevate it above the already great-looking PS3 and Wii U builds.

“The team at Voofoo did such a great job on previous versions, and set themselves a high benchmark for PS4” said Phil Gaskell, Creative Director at Ripstone. “When gamers download this new version on next-gen consoles they will experience the step-change in visual fidelity. There are moments when playing this game where it genuinely looks better than real life.”

Here’s what Pure Chess looks like running on PS4:
