New RISK: Factions Screens

EA Play, who’s speciality is accessible gaming are releasing the  Hasbro classic, RISK, on the Xbox Live Arcade. The title will hit the marketplace sometime early this year and this new digital version will apparently offer new ways to experience the turn based in objective and conquest type game modes.

“Players will be able to engage as one of five playable factions, each with different strengths, as they wage war on new maps with dynamic terrain in their quest for missile silos in order to strategically dominate the game. Additionally, as rivals go head-to-head during unique, animated combat missions, enemies will be able to trigger “Overkill” moments, based on the roll of the dice, and unlock avatar awards while attempting global supremacy.”


Everyone knows RISK is pretty awesome and personally I think it will lend itself well to accessible console gaming, EA have certainly done a good job with the art style. As you can see from the screenies below two of the factions are humans and cats, we’ll leave it to you to guess what the other three might be.
