FFG anuncia nuevo juego Fortress America.

Desconocía de las intenciones de que FFG, estuviese preparando este juego. La verdad es que tampoco me atrae demasiado, pero como seguramente a muchos de vosotros, si os interesa, os dejo la noticia de la publicación por parte de FFG.
Parece, que un futuro cercano, EEUU, entra en guerra contra el resto del mundo.
Clásico juego de estrategia y minis de plástico. Como parece ser habitual últimamente en FFG, se trata del remake, de un juego de 1987, del que debo reconocer mi total desconocimiento.
Seguro que algún compañero, nos podrá iluminar y nos contará si puede valer la pena.

Important note: Our initial announcement of Fortress America included flavor text that was interpreted by readers (quite justifiably) as politically inflammatory. That text has been since altered to correctly reflect our game's backstory. Our marketing department misread certain key thematic elements of the game, and took unauthorized dramatic liberties with the text. We apologize for any offense this may have caused. 
In the 21st century, the United States unveiled a military defense system that completely changed global politics. Through a series of satellites and powerful lasers, the U.S. gained a flawless defense against intercontinental missile attacks. The rest of the world feared that this defensive network might be used to launch an attack, and they united to demand that the U.S. dismantle it. A lengthy diplomatic stalemate gripped the globe. With the world at a crossroads, coalitions of nations were formed unlike any that had ever existed before. A plan was devised to destroy this perceived technological threat through military action. It involved attacking from three directions at once, for the nations of the world knew that every army dreads fighting a war on two fronts... and America was about to face three.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Fortress America, a board game of strategy and survival for two to four players! This updated version of Michael Gray's 1986 classic pits one player, in control of the beleaguered American forces, against up to three others, who team up to assault the U.S. on three fronts. Featuring beautifully crafted components (including over 300 detailed plastic figures),Fortress America thrusts players into a frightening geopolitical scenario in which diplomacy has failed, and World War III has begun.
When diplomacy fails
In Fortress America, the United States must defend itself from three deadly invading armies: the Asian People’s Alliance from the West, the Central American Federation from the South, and the Euro-Socialist Pact from the East. Players take on either the role of the United States, struggling to protect itself from foreign threats, or the role of one or more of the invading armies, fighting battle after battle to acquire important territories.
Fans of the 1986 Milton Bradley release will find designer Michael Gray's core experience essentially unchanged, while offering welcome enhancements over the original. For more information, including an overview of game play and a look at the changes we’ve introduced, visit our detailed description page. Then keep checking back in the coming weeks as we unveil an in-depth series of previews, and prepare for WWIII to begin in the first quarter of 2012!
