Electronic Arts has just announced that the classic board game RISK will be coming to iPhone and iPod Touch this summer. Players will be able to take on advanced AI or challenge up to six friends in a race to rule the world.
The original game of global domination, RISK for iPhone will feature a completely updated look and feel while retaining the essential elements of the old-school RISK experience. You’ll be able to build armies to attack enemies, fortify your territories and conquer all six continents
From the EA Press Room:
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.
