Interplay Brings Back Battle Chess

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/109955-Interplay-Brings-Back-Battle-Chess

From the article:
On a related note, Joystiq pointed out that back in October 2010, Interplay won an injunction against TopWare Interactive, which was advertising a very Battle Chess-like game called Battle vs. Chess. Despite the courtroom victory, the Battle vs. Chess website is still active, saying the game will be out on May 17.

I think that legal issues mean that the Battle vs Chess software is not going to see the light of day.

Thanks for the research! I have been weekly trying to find that product. It was listed in many software supply houses as coming soon and recently it just disappeared. Now I know why. That answers my biggest question of why it was so cheap.

Really is too bad! I too was looking forward to an action packed chess game.


Is it finally out now?

http://www.battlevschess.com/en/

It has the Fritz engine, so it seems.

Great news! I have Win 7 64 bit as well. Now I'm tempted. Maybe Santa will bring it to me... :wink:
