According to the developers, they have often been asked about DLC from players looking to customize their chess experience. From the brief description provided, the DLC appears to be optional and cosmetic in nature, which probably mean no achievements, with Ripstone planning to provide "new breath-taking environments and hand-crafted chess sets." More details will be provided in the coming weeks.
