BioWare has announced its own Mass Effect-themed take on Hasbro's strategy board game Risk, scheduled to be released later this year.

The developer took to Facebook to show off the game's box. "Oh yes, it's real, and it's coming this Fall!" said BioWare.

The art used is the same as the cover for last year's Mass Effect 3, suggesting the board game adaptation will revolve around Shepard's last adventure. And the Galaxy at War tagline is clearly visible on the box, too--Mass Effect 3's galaxy-wide resource management and conquest system would likely make a solid base for Risk's territorial objectives.

Hasbro is no stranger to video game adaptations of Risk and has previously themed its iconic game around Metal Gear Solid, Starcraft, and Halo.

BioWare is still teasing additional DLC for Mass Effect 3, with eagle-eyed data miners recently uncovering files that suggest the company will bring single-player data into the next wave of co-op levels.
