In a sense, an entire genre of gaming has just come full circle- modern strategy games all derive from classic turn based strategy games on older computers, which, in turn, like so many other video games of that era, were just a digitization of real, popular board games- in this case, the board game in question was Risk, a classic turn based war strategy game that continues to shift huge numbers to this day.
Now, it is accessible to an all new generation of players, as the game is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 over Xbox Live and PlayStation Network respectively- the console game retains the authenticity of the classic rules, while pushing the world-famous strategy game to new limits with 3D tactical battlefields, configurable win conditions and Legacy rule variants. The game allows up to four players to bring out their inner commander from a high-tech control room and set off to dominate the world using the classic map layout, all the while being assisted by AI partner Iris.
