The exclusive annotated database. Contains more than 7.1 millions games from 1560 to 2017 in the highest ChessBase quality standard. Over 72,000 games contain commentary from top players, with ChessBase opening classification (more than 100,000 key positions), direct access to players, tournaments, middlegame themes, endgames. The largest topclass annotated database in the world. The most recent games of the database are from the middle of October 2017. Mega 2017 also features a new edition of the playerbase (requires ChessBase 14 or 13). As usual, this is where most of the work was done. As the player index now contains already more than 340,000 entries, it made sense to use an adapted playerbase which includes about 520,000 names. Doing this, the photo database was extended as well to contain 38,500 pictures now. Includes Online Mega-Update 2018 - with ChessBase 14, 13 or 12 you can download games for Mega 2018 for the whole year, a total of approximately 250,000! That means your Mega 2018 will remain up to date from January to December.
System requirements: Pentium PC, 1 GB RAM, Windows 10 or 8.1, DVD-ROM drive, ChessBase 14 or 13.
Great research tool. Probably the best reference database

As a long time ChessBase customer (approx. 30 years), it seems like I have made multiple purchases of Big Database and Mega database, in part paying for the same data over and over. So, it is nice to have a customer loyalty discount that is good for upgrading earlier version (not just the most recent), and I purchased this to upgrade my Mega 2012. This added about 40% more games as well as giving me the more recent games. Plus, as soon as I installed it, there were more games available for download (games are posted every month). I was able to easily merge these in. I am not sure why, but very few chess retailers offer the upgrade, so I was pleased to find it available from Chess Central. Mega also comes with the 2018 Playerbase. I also received this with my upgrade to ChessBase 14. Things got confusing when I discovered the two versions of Playerbase 2018 are not the same, and one is not simply an update of the other, as each has photos that are not in the other. I tried a T-Note suggestion to merge them, and managed to cause the Playerbase to stop working. But since access to the Playerbase is also available live, I have not bothered to track down the fix to my local copies.
