Risk: Factions brings donkey cannons to the classic board game
After the success of Monopoly Millionaires, EA and Playfish are now bringing another popular board game to Facebook, this time in the form of Risk: Factions. We haven’t seen the game in action yet, but it looks like it will be much less serious than the board game, with gangly zombies and donkeys pulling cannons. And we’ve got the teaser trailer to prove it.
First revealed at this past E3, the debut trailer doesn’t show the game at all. Instead, it’s a clear parody of the debut trailer for StarCraft II. Only instead of a cigar chomping space marine, it features a carrot chomping donkey with a cannon strapped to its back. As for how the game will actually play, here’s what the description on its Facebook page has to say:
“Take over the world, one territory at a time. When one at a time isn’t enough, unleash a donkey cannon to destroy your enemies! Build up your military base so that you can maintain a constant supply of donkey cannons and other game-changing weapons.
“Play as one of a variety of factions, each with unique strengths and special weapons. Use limitless zombie hordes to overwhelm your enemies’ defenses, or use a catapult to defend the flanks of your cat faction. However you choose to play, Risk: Factions lets you conquer the world in your own way.”
No word yet on when Risk: Factions will be launcing on Facebook.
