As if the glorious Conquest wasn’t enough, board-game mongering EA will bring out an official RISK strategy game this summer. Its name? (cue drumroll) RISK (end drumroll… I said end it dammit!). In case you were wondering, you’ll be able to demolish Ukraine with up to 5 other players in WiFi, Bluetooth and everyone’s finger-print smudging favourite: pass ‘n play. EA reckon they’ve got a great soundtrack to accompany the entire thing, something I look forward to testing myself. The release date is somewhat of a secret unless you can suss its debut by the word ‘summer’.
