The preview version of Underlords, Valve’s Auto Chess game, has just been released and is currently available to all TI9 Battle Pass owners.

In Dota Underlords, players will be able to strategize against seven other people using familiar Dota 2 heroes as chess pieces. The preview version also features offline and co-op play either with bots or other humans.

A link to the game can be found on the Dota 2 dashboard, where Battle Pass subscribers can add the Auto Chess game to their Steam library for free.

The Dota 2 Battle Pass preview of Underlords will last for one week starting today. A free Open Beta will be released on June 20 for all players across all platforms (Steam, iOS, Android).

Underlords is Valve’s own take on Auto Chess genre after the success of the Drodo Studio’s Dota 2 Auto Chess mod, which started it all.
