Before you enter the Free Marches in BioWare's Dragon Age II in March, enter them in EA 2D's Facebook strategy role-playing game Dragon Age Legends and unlock phat loot for the main game.
EA 2D augmented the original Dragon Age with Dragon Age Journeys, a browser-based prequel to the award-winning RPG. The studio returns to the world of Dragon Age in February with Dragon Age Legends, a Facebook-based strategy role-playing game that introduces players to the Free Marches, the primary setting for the console and PC sequel.
Players step into the role of one of the most trusted allies of Ravi, the Viscount of Kaiten. When mysterious happenings centred around his son Elton arise, you (and your Facebook friends) are the only one who can save him. You'll go on quests, earn loot, share rewards, grow the kingdom, and hopefully unlock something nice for your Dragon Age II party.
"We are privileged to be working with BioWare to bring the Dragon Age universe to the hundreds of millions of gamers on Facebook," said Mark Spenner, general manager of EA 2D. "Our goal is to change the perception of social network games and attract new players to the Facebook platform by raising the quality bar. Dragon Age Legends will deliver a deep, sophisticated experience, and we will continue to delight gamers by adding new features and content far into the future."
Players can sign up today at the Dragon Age Legends website to receive info on the beta test for the game. The full Facebook app is expected in February, a month ahead of Dragon Age II.
