Ever wondered what it would be like to be immersed in the Monopoly world? Ever wondered the possibility of playing Monopoly on your television, in a dynamic 3D deliverance? Well, wonder no more, as EA has announced the latest Monopoly game – Monopoly Streets.

Scheduled to launch this fall on PS3, Monopoly Streets is bringing the entire Monopoly world to the console, putting players right into a Monopoly-themed world, “re-imagined” to experience the classic board game in a street level view. The game will utilize the classic Monopoly formula, giving players the option of buying property, and see your fictional empire rise, or possibly fall. The title also delivers classic game board modes, for the “purists.”

Also included in the game are the new “house rules”, where players can save their own customized rules and play with a group of friends. Monopoly Streets also features an online mode for the PS3 (also Xbox 360), where you’ll be able to find other players around the world to play with. Downloadable content will be available for the game as well, giving players the ability to download future content, such as themed boards, tokens, etc. Chip Lange, General Manager and Senior Vice President of EA’s Hasbro Division, had this to say on the title.

“We’re taking Hasbro’s No. 1 family game brand and masterfully striking the balance of offering the classic MONOPOLY play experience and adding a spectacular new visual treatment as we bring the classic board to life with players walking the streets of MONOPOLY. MONOPOLY Streets will bring people together and connect families all over the world by offering online gameplay through their gaming consoles. We think this unique, combined offering will bring families together around the TV this holiday season for a classic family gaming tradition they’ll remember for years to come.”

As mentioned, Monopoly Streets launches this fall.
