Russian Inspired Chess Ultra DLC – Available Now


05th February

We’ve got an announcement to share that will hopefully brighten your week… another brand new DLC Pack is available now for Chess Ultra on PC, VR, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!

The Academy Pack contains two new pieces of DLC for Chess Ultra and is a tribute to the long and noble chess playing tradition in Russia that has produced some of the greatest players of all time. When it comes to playing chess online, Chess Ultra provides a variety of both traditional and modern environments and chess sets. The Academy Pack fits perfectly into the current line-up of playable content, and brings a piece of Russian history to the board.

Immersive Environment

The Akademiya environment invites you to follow in the footsteps of the Russian Grandmasters that played in the halls of the academy, and is fully playable in VR. We invite you to immerse yourself in the tournament setting and feel the pressure with every move.

Stunning Chess Set

The Academy Pack also contains the simple yet beautiful Kholmogory chess set, which is available in two materials; traditional wood and sleek plastic. The design was modelled on a rare chess set created in the Russian town of Kholmogory, and pays homage to the rich chess history held by the rural village.


The pack is available to download now for £4.79 / $5.99. We’re really excited to be sharing this new content with you and hope you enjoy playing using the new environment and chess set!
