As video games continue to prove themselves as a powerful force in the family entertainment market, more and more classic games are being re-imagined for home game consoles like the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft''s Xbox 360. In an effort to take advantage of this emerging market, noted game manufacturer Hasbro has tasked Austin, Texas'', Power House Animation to bring the classic wartime strategy game Risk to life.
Working with acclaimed game developers Electronic Arts, Power House set out to capture the complex and engrossing experience of Risk while providing a truly unique gaming experience for up to five players at a time.
In Risk, players take command of their own army and are pitted against each other in a battle for global domination. The video game version will feature compelling battle graphics, online play and a cinematic storyline new to the gaming experience.
"Just as the original Risk board game broke new ground 50 years ago by being the first game to offer non-linear movement, EA is re-inventing this long-time favorite for todays digital consumer," Mark Blecher of Hasbro digital media tells the Austin Business Journal. "We expect Risk: Factions to be well received on (Xbox Live, the system''s online gaming service) among the strategy and simulation community."
