RISK Marches Onto The App Store This Summer

RISK Marches Onto The App Store This Summer

EA Mobile sent us information regarding their upcoming officially licensed RISK game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Frankly I’m a bit surprised that there was no mention of an iPad-native version, as this would seem an ideal fit for the iPad’s larger form factor. EA Mobile is promising an authentic Risk experience, see below for a description of the game’s key features:

THE ORIGINAL WAR GAME TRADITION LIVES ON IN AN EXPLOSIVE NEW WAY

The updated look and feel also captures the powerful tradition of the authentic RISK experience. Strategize over the world map, attack with a “roll” of the dice, and fortify your advances with the same rule set as the classic board game.

ENGAGE IN MULTIPLE MODES OF BATTLE

Test your power against strong AI opponents, each featuring unique strategies and even emotional responses. Escalate the action in two Multiplayer modes. Challenge up to 4 of your greatest rivals via WiFi or Bluetooth, or up to 6 with Pass ‘n Play.

CRUSH YOUR OPPONENTS AND ACHIEVE HONOR

Attack enemy forces, and transfer and fortify your armies in phase-based warfare. Track the progress and relative strength of opponents with easily accessible in-game statistics. Earn an extensive list of achievements as your armies dominate territory after territory.

STAY ON THE MARCH BACKED BY AN INSPIRING SOUNDTRACK

Stirring sound effects and morale-boosting music enhance the feelings of struggle – and triumph!
