Hasbro has teamed up with Ubisoft to launch the Hasbro Game Channel on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Available from the autumn, the Hasbro Game Channel will allow gamers to play different versions of some of the toy firm’s biggest titles, including Monopoly, Risk and Trivial Pursuit.
“We have worked closely with Ubisoft on the development of the Hasbro Game Channel, which will bring family and friends together for a fun and social gaming experience with their favorite brands,” said Mark Blecher, senior vice president of digital gaming and corporate development for Hasbro.
“The new console games will allow players to connect and play with others, not just in their living rooms, but around the world.”
Chris Early, vice president of digital publishing at Ubisoft, added: “We’re bringing Hasbro’s classic games to the digital age, capturing all the excitement and fun of these timeless games and building new ways to play them with the Hasbro Game Channel.
“The new console experiences will offer a brand new channel with both familiar and new gameplay modes, various missions, achievements and rewards for endless fun with friends and family.”
The first three titles available on the Hasbro Game Channel will be Monopoly Plus, Risk and Trivial Pursuit Live.
Monopoly Plus features an original 2D board as well as an animated 3D version that evolves as players progress in the game, while Risk offers the familiar map boosted with modern armies, 3D tactical battlefields, configurable win conditions and online league play.
Trivial Pursuit Live brings the game into a TV-show setting with reinvented question formats, customisable game lengths and a variety of game rounds and rules to keep players guessing.
All three titles will be available to download worldwide from the autumn.
