This annotated database is the premier game collection from ChessBase, and contains more than 6.4 million games from 1560 to 2015 in the highest ChessBase quality format. Over 68,500 games have commentary by the world's top chess players, all with ChessBase opening classification featuring more than 100,000 key positions - plus direct access to players, tournaments, middlegame and endgame themes. Now you can have the largest professionally annotated database in the world. Mega 2016 also features a new edition of the playerbase (requires ChessBase 12 or 13). As usual, this is where most of the work was done. As the player index now contains already more than 319,000 entries, it made sense to use an adapted playerbase which includes about 390,000 names. Doing this, the photo database was extended as well to contain 35,000 pictures now. Incl. The most recent games in the database are from the middle of September 2015, but with the online "Mega-Update" you can download games for Mega 2016 throughout the whole year, using ChessBase 12 or 13, and that's a total of roughly 250,000 new chess games! In other words, your Mega 2016 will remain up to date from January to December.
System requirements: 1 GHz Pentium PC, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7/Vista/XP, 512 MB RAM, DVD-ROM drive, ChessBase 12 or 13, Internet connection required for online updates.
