Everybody’s favorite war strategy board game is now available on Xbox Live Arcade for $10. This isn’t just your ordinary Risk, though. Risk: Factions lets you command one of five “fanatical” factions. Choose from cats, robots, zombies, yetis, or humans and try your hand in single-player mode and then take it online or over a local network against other players.
Here’s the launch trailer:
Cartoony, no? Game modes include the standard Risk rule set, plus “three multiplayer modes including: Command Room mode, featuring the fast moving objective-based 2008 rule-set; Classic mode, offering traditional play where players conquer the world by eliminating all other opponents; and World Conquest mode, a mix of Command Room and Classic modes.”
