About The Game

In the near future, war has become privatized and instigated by third-parties. Metal Gear Solid Risk 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.

As the fires of war continue to spread, take command and wage the ultimate battle for supremacy. Hire one of eight legendary bosses to lead your soldiers, including Solid Snake, Raiden and Liquid Ocelot. Coordinate with arms dealers to gain tactical advantages over those who would oppose you.

“The age of deterrence is now the age of control. He who controls the battlefield, controls history.”

Game comes complete with:

  • Over 290 custom game pieces:
  • 5 PMC Armies
  • 8 Bosses
  • Outer Haven Battleship
