The arrival of the holiday season sees the ushering in of the humble board game – bot not any old board game, Monopoly. But if you’re one of the many who need a new twist on that old classic, Monopoly Madness is sure to appeal.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PS4, PS5, Google Stadia and PC through the Ubisoft Store, Monopoly Madness takes the tried and tested glory of Monopoly and mixes it up a little, as Ubisoft reinvent the game that has brought together families for many a year.
It’s priced at £24.99 and will allow fans of Monopoly to discover something fresh about the franchise as it ditches the usual board and lets you roam the streets of Monopoly City – all in order to discover your riches.
Monopoly Madness comes with no less than 20 playable characters in play, with these inspired by the Monopoly tokens that we have grown up with. Throw in 4 unique environments, the chance for up to 6 people to play either via online services or through local play, and a whole ton of power-ups popping up out of the Community Chest and it’s easy to understand how this is a very different beast to the usual Monopoly scene.
The standard goals remain though – collect, buy, upgrade and make a ton of cash.
The key features of Monopoly Madness include…
- • No more board! Roam the streets of Monopoly City to collect money, water, and electricity.
- • 20 NEW playable characters inspired by classic MONOPOLY tokens.
- • Discover 4 unique environments, each with several levels and layouts.
- • Play with up to 6 players online or locally.
- • Get power-ups from the Community Chests! Use them to mess with your opponents and gain an advantage to win.
Should you be in the market for a mix of the usual Monopoly ideas then Monopoly Madness should certainly be one to check out. We’ll be sure to grab some review thoughts as soon as we can, but for now you’ll find the game on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
It’s also present on PS4, PS5, Google Stadia, Nintendo Switch and PC.
As this is a Ubisoft special, you’ll also find Monopoly Madness bundled in together with Monopoly Plus for £44.99.
MONOPOLY, in a way you’ve never seen before. With shorter rounds, race other players across the chaotic streets of Monopoly City, collect resources, buy and upgrade properties, mess with your opponents, and avoid their tricks to win the race for riches.
