Closer Look At Risk: Metal Gear Solid Limited Edition Board Game

First unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, here's our first look at the retail version of the game that blends the strategy of Risk with the game design of Metal Gear Solid... No, it doesn't come with cut-scenes.

The game goes on pre-sale on October 3, for $US49.95. The game takes place in the near future after war has become privatized and instigated by "third-parties," according to the press release.

In the game, players command one of the five Private Military Companies (PMCs) who have risen to power and face off against an army of foes. To win, you must launch daring attacks, defend yourself on all fronts and boldly sweep across vast lands.

The game board has six zones and 42 territories. Among the game contents are: 275 custom plastic playing pieces representing five private military companies, neutral armies and cities, a custom Outer Haven battleship and game board, 8 Boss Cards, 40 Drebin's Cards and 42 Territory Cards and 8 Rewards that can be earned. The packaging for Metal Gear Solid Risk features custom artwork by Yoji Shinkawa, Art Director of the Metal Gear Solid franchise.

Let's have a look why don't we.


    When im playing this i'll just annoy the other teams by constantly yelling "snake? are you all right? what happened? snake? SNNNNAAAAAKKE!!!" every time my little army men die.

    This is so awesome and I haven't even played Risk before.

    You can always do your own cutscenes. Just sit around talking about miscellaneous crap with the other players for half an hour at a time. Or call one of your mates on the phone and have a lengthy chat with him between turns.

    Dammit, just looked on the manufacturers website, only ships to addresses within US / Canada due to licensing.

    ShopUSA, here I come!

    Love how Raidan truly looks like a girl on the box art :P

      I was about to say "Dude, no, that's Meryl..." but then I looked again and saw Raiden there with his flowing locks of silver :-P

      Guess my nanomachines were suppressing my ability to percieve Raiden...

      So I guess I would have said "LaLeLuLiLo?? What are you talking about? That's Meryl on the box... What is LaLeLuLiLo?"

      :-P ok, I'll stop now.

    Every time your friend's turn starts, use your phone to call their's [codec] LOL

    YES. I'm going to play while only communicating in my Ocelot voice. It's gonna be sweet.
