Netflix Gives Us a Peek at the Gameplay of The Queen's Gambit Chess Mobile Game

Are you up to the challenge? Netflix

We finally got a better look at the offerings of the upcoming mobile game The Queen's Gambit Chess from Netflix Games. This is all thanks to the gameplay trailer released during TUDUM 2023: A Netflix Global Fan Event held in Brazil.

While the trailer didn't give away too much, it's still enough to inform the fans of chess and the show. Players can visit different locations, like the Mariposa Hotel or Elizabeth Harmon's house, and even meet characters in the show, like Mr. Shaibel and even Borgov. Although you won't get to play as Beth, she'll be in the game offering tips and challenges.

However, what is sure to make everyone even more excited is that the game is playable in different ways; there are boards in 3D and some in 2D. Players can also take on challenges like winning within a time limit or by a certain number of moves.

You can watch the gameplay trailer below:

The Queen's Gambit Chess is launching July 25 on Android and iOS, inviting players to be part of Beth Harmon's world. They get to take chess lessons, play puzzles and matches, or compete against friends and more. This immersive experience is sure to appeal to all kinds of players, from beginners to chess masters.

The game is made possible through Ripstone Games, the same studio that created Chess Ultra. When the game was first announced last year, Ripstone creative director and co-founder Phil Gaskell revealed that they wanted to offer a "love letter" to the show while also setting a new standard for chess games on mobile. He added that they wanted to create a game that fans of the limited series will love. He then went on to say that it's also a game that offers something for chess players, no matter what their level may be.

The game is based on the limited series The Queen's Gambit on Netflix, starring Anya Taylor-Joy, who plays Elizabeth Harmon, a fictional American chess prodigy. Set in the mid-1950s to sometime in the 1960s, it follows the story of Beth as she competes her way to the top while struggling with issues like alcohol and drug dependency.
