Based on the board game, the video game version from Ubisoft is available now and sells for $15. It's coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.

Ubisoft says its new Risk console game "provides a modern twist" on the classic wartime strategy game, while also pushing things forward with 3D battlefields, configurable win conditions, and even legacy rule variants. Up to four people can play at once.

A franchise-first, Ubisoft's Risk game introduces "Iris," an artificial intelligence "whose mission is to give tactical guidance" through tutorials and feedback. The game also supports online and league play.

What's Ubisoft doing making a Risk game? It's part of the French publisher's arrangement with Hasbro that covers a series of games, including the recently released Tetris title.
