Risk Factions, the downloadable console game based on the classic global war board game, has made a surprise appearance on the PC platform via Steam. The PC version was developer by Stainless Games and was first released for the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade in June 2010 and for the PS3's Playstation Network in December 2010.
Fans of the original board game will notice a lot of difference in Risk Factions including the fact that there are five cartoony playable sides in the game (Humans, Robots, Zombies, Yeti and Cats). There's a single player campaign where players unlock the factions and multiplayer where players can battle each other with new objectives including "flooding" out enemies out of territories. The game is now available on Steam for $9.99.
