RISK: Factions released on Xbox LIVE® Arcade!
23 June 2010
This highly anticipated adaptation of the granddaddy of world domination strategy games is now available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade!
The Stainless developed RISK: Factions is based on the RISK 2008 rules with a few extra twists: You can play as one of five factions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, against AI opponents in a campaign mode with all-new maps to conquer, as well as online over Xbox LIVE®. Cartoon cut scenes and animations inject a healthy dose of humourinto the mix, giving you an excuse to grin madly as you crush your enemies underfoot!
Shaun Smith, Creative Director at Stainless, said “We wanted to create something really special with RISK: Factions – taking this cult-classic game and adding a new campaign-style story, with maps designed especially for this version featuring dynamic terrain, special extras that you can capture to use against your foes, and ‘Overkill’ moments for when you really hammer your opponents with those dice rolls.”
And of course no version of RISK would be complete without a Classic world domination mode to satisfy the pangs of nostalgia, even if there’s no option to turn the board over and storm off when you lose to your friends!
RISK: Factions is available now from Xbox LIVE® Arcade.
