Coming from EA, this XBLA game will be with us this summer.
Featuring five factions, this humorous new take on the classic board game will have plenty to offer both newcomers and veterans.
â€œFor the past half-century, millions of RISK fans have been consumed with ruling the world, underscoring the board gameâ€™s enduring appeal,â€ said Chip Lange, Senior Vice President and General Manager of EAâ€™s Hasbro Division. â€œWeâ€™re now going to bring that masterpiece experience to life and add other amazing layers of XBLA-style gameplay that will take conquests to a new level, including the ability to battle players from around the globe for the first time, truly giving new meaning to the phrase â€˜world dominationâ€™.â€
â€œJust as the original RISK board game broke new ground 50 years ago by being the first game to offer non-linear movement, EA is re-inventing this long-time favorite for todayâ€™s digital consumer,â€ said Mark Blecher, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media and Gaming at Hasbro. â€œWe expect RISK: Factions to be well received on XBLA among the strategy and simulation community.â€
