June 10, 2024 — Today, Ubisoft announced MONOPOLY, a next- generation digital take on the iconic tabletop classic, will be launching in September.

In the new MONOPOLY, the classic franchise returns with improved graphics and gameplay that brings the tabletop experience to life. When players move around the board, they can admire the neighborhood and watch as it transforms before their eyes, from sunny mornings to stormy nights. Explore every nook and cranny of the city to uncover hidden tokens, but vigilant players beware! Keep an eye out for Mr. Monopoly, who may be hiding in plain sight!

“As MONOPOLY nears its 90th anniversary, we are delighted to work with Ubisoft to deliver a brand new take on the classic game – one which truly immerses players digitally and brings the board’s neighborhoods and locations to life like never before,” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast. “This collaboration with Ubisoft highlights our ongoing strategy to grow our digital games portfolio and expand the reach of our iconic brands to gamers all around the world.”

Enjoy an authentic tabletop experience with family and friends. Play with up to six players in your living room or take matches online to compete against property moguls from around the world. MONOPOLY is designed to be the perfect game night activity – players can choose to share a single controller or have each use their own.

Need to change things up? Customize the MONOPOLY experience by choosing your favorite dice and token aesthetic, or by crafting a homemade rule set. MONOPOLY has multiple features that allow players to curate their gameplay experience, from Fast Mode that forces players to switch strategies to Speed Die that allows for faster board progression and shorter matches.

MONOPOLY will be available in September2024 on Ubisoft+, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Nintendo SwitchTM, as well as Windows PC through the Ubisoft Store, the Epic Games Store, and Steam. Players can also subscribe to Ubisoft+ on PC and Amazon Luna.*
