EA is to release an Xbox Live Arcade version of RISK early this year.

Based on the 53 year-old board game, RISK: Factions “promises to challenge and captivate both new and seasoned RISK fans on their quest for world domination.”

“For the past half-century, millions of RISK fans have been consumed with ruling the world, underscoring the board game’s enduring appeal,” said Chip Lange, SVP and GM of EA Play.

The game will also feature online play.

    Ah, the good old Uni days. Half a dozen guys, 40 cans of lager, some ‘unusual’ cigarettes, a Risk board, and no sleep ’til there’s an outright winner. Or we all pass out.

    I played the board-game RISK a lot in the early seventies when I was in boarding-school.

    As we all progressed our skills we finally found out that the one who starts the game ultimately always wins. This game is basically flawed !!!

    I have no idea how they will manage to fix this in the video game version.
