Using the same hands-on military planning found in the original RISK board game, players now see battles come to life. With Risk: Global Domination, players can engage in arduous online battles with friends or challenge foes from around the world. The game features gameplay for up to six players in Multiplayer mode and online, with eleven AI opponents, representing historic military leaders. Each historic military leader is equipped with subtle personality, voice and playing styles.
There are three play modes in the game - Classic Risk, Secret Mission Risk and Capital Risk. In Classic Risk, players are battling to conquer the world. To win, players must use strategic planning to launch daring attacks, defend themselves on all fronts and sweep across continents with boldness and cunning. Victory is achieved when a single player occupies every territory on the map. The Secret Mission Risk game is a generally shorter game variant of the Classic RISK game. Each player is assigned a unique mission, as defined by his or her Mission card. The first player to complete all of his or her mission objectives achieves immediate victory. The Capital RISK game is also a shorter game variant of the Classic RISK game. Each player places armies and then chooses a territory to become his or her capital. The player who takes control of all the capitals on the map wins.
"Risk: Global Domination is built on a proven brand of strategy and luck for a highly competitive experience," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari. "Now with the ability to play Risk anytime, anywhere or with anyone, the game provides the ultimate social experience with as many as six players battling for global dominance at once."
Every Risk: Global Domination battle brings the chance for victory, as well as advice from historic military leaders as they earn medals and special bonus content for strategic accomplishments. Developed by Cyberlore Studios, Risk: Global Domination is available at retail outlets for a suggested retail price of $29.95. For more information, please visit http://www.atari.com.
