According to the band's official website, a version of the popular board game will be available to buy in August.
The Collector's Edition will feature AC/DC albums and international locations as the board's squares, with the houses and hotels replaced by gold and platinum records -- something AC/DC are pretty familiar with.
The band also revealed the six playing pieces that will come with the game, including a 'For Those About to Rock'-inspired cannon, a lightning bolt and the school boy hat made famous by guitarist Angus Young.
The AC/DC version follows news that fellow rockers Metallica have also been immortalised in Monopoly form, with their edition released on Friday, June 17.
As previously reported by Spinner, the Rolling Stones have also put their name to the board game, with their edition having been released last year to mark the game's 75th anniversary. Community Chest cards were replaced with guitar licks and lyrics and the traditional Monopoly money notes were changed into gig tickets.
