Featuring outlandish factions, a unique art style, new gameplay twists and off-beat humor, RISK: Factions promises to challenge and captivate both new and seasoned Risk fans on their quest for world domination.

Developed by Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers studio Stainless Games and featuring cinematics from veteran animation studio Power House Animation, RISK: Factions will offer innovative ways of experiencing the timeless turn-based board game in both objective-based and world conquest modes. Players will be able to engage as one of five playable factions, each with different strengths, as they wage war on new maps with dynamic terrain in their quest for missile silos in order to strategically dominate the game. Additionally, as rivals go head-to-head during unique, animated combat missions, enemies will be able to trigger "Overkill" moments, based on the roll of the dice, and unlock avatar awards while attempting global supremacy. With a new animated art style, kooky humor and a choice of five oddball factions, RISK: Factions is sure to offer something for veteran RISK strategists and newcomers alike.


A militia of brain-starved zombies, led by the cadaverous Colonel Claus Von Stiffenberg, will join the previously announced armies of humans, cats, and robots in the imminent battle for world domination. 

In addition to the five unique factions in the game, RISK fans will also find new maps with dynamic terrain elements that can enhance or complicate a player’s strategic position; cunning generals can flood enemies out of territories, avoid nuclear fallout, and control missile silos to gain the strategic upper hand.
