Queen Monopoly is coming in May says Brian May

Published On March 21, 2017 | By Rob Jenkins | Rock Lounge, Rock News

Guitarist Brian May announced the upcoming game telling fans to expect a May release date and adding that they’d been “very secretly developing Queen Monopoly for over a year.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, the goal of the game has been altered to reflect the band’s legacy; instead of buying up real estate and utilities in an effort to bankrupt friends and family, players will instead attempt to achieve Queen-style greatness by following “the amazing gig history of Queen, from their very first at Imperial College in 1970 to their last with Freddie Mercury at Knebworth Park in 1986” and buying “gig locations and hit singles” as they go.
Queen Monopoly includes an assortment of new playing pieces designed after key moments in the band’s history. In addition to May’s guitar, players can choose from a robot (inspired by the News of the World album artwork), a bicycle (a nod to the bands’ “Bicycle Race”), a vacuum cleaner (as seen in the video for “I Want to Break Free”) and a hammer (an allusion to “Hammer to Fall”).
