EA 2D - Dragon Age: Legends Announced
 
EA2D has announced Dragon Age: Legends, a Facebook game that obviously links with BioWare's upcoming Dragon Age 2. Like the Flash game Journeys last time, you'll win in-game bonuses for playing:

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—BioWare™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS) today announced Dragon Age™ Legends, a new Play4Free Facebook® game that expands on the critically acclaimed RPG franchise Dragon Age.

I'm wondering why they didn't put Dragon Age : Legends together with Dragon Age ?
Flash games can be played offline, too - in principle.

Huh? What do you mean, Alrik?

They did something similar last time with Dragon Age: Journeys, which was a prequel to Origins and unlocked items for that game. EA2D make some fairly good quality games, though, but I'll be giving this a miss.

I really enjoyed Dragon Age: Journeys — so, although the Facebook angle makes me skeptical, I will keep an open mind.

I really wish they would do a mobile game instead of Flash/Facebook, but oh well.

Attack of the Casual Gamers !!!!

azarhal November 4th, 2010 00:18

I find it strange that there's no link to the official website with the press release: http://www.ea.com/dragon-age-legends

It have a few screenshots and it looks like Dragon Age: Journeys, but with DA2 "animations".

skavenhorde November 4th, 2010 01:07

Facebook game???

Pass.

Try again EA2D. This time maybe another flash or make their own game. They got the resources to do a relatively simple yet fun game all on their own, but they choose facebook…..

Well, DA: Journeys was a decent game for passing time whenever I did not have access to a gaming computer. I'll give Legends the benefit of the doubt for now.

wolfgrimdark November 4th, 2010 10:01

I pass. I deleted my Facebook account and hardly going to make a new one just to do this. Seems like it would be better to link something up from their BSD site, which is suppose to be their social site anyhow.

skavenhorde November 4th, 2010 10:10

I wish I could delete mine. My family would have a hissy fit if I did.

bemushroomed November 4th, 2010 10:17

lol.. i would be embarrassed right now if i was a bioware fan..

Okay, I mixed Journeys with Legends.

Besides, when does "Dragon Age : The Farming Adventure" come out now ?

Now that truly made me laugh :D

Facebook game……*facepalm*

The last time Dragon Age was announced the Flash game wasn't the best, but at least it wasn't that bad either.

There was all this talk of returning to their roots.

Now with the second one being released it is like a total 180 on everything they were saying/doing last time.

Bioware seems to want to try to make a somewhat decent rpg game with the first one and then sell out completely with the second one. ME 2 was such a departure from ME 1 that it's like they were made by two totally different developers. This one doesn't look like they are going to break that trend.

Last time I didn't check it was 17th of May 2014.

ick, Facebook? :(

coaster November 4th, 2010 18:47

Haven't these people done their research? Don't they know RPG fans are sociopaths with no friends?

Bloody Facebook.

Thrasher November 4th, 2010 20:02

Or don't appreciate superficial facebook "friends"?

pox67 November 6th, 2010 00:46

I kind of enjoyed DA: Journeys for something to do in my lunch hour.
I don't do Facebook though and very happy with my decision since everyone at work felt enough peer pressure to add the bosses to their accounts. Oh I laughed so hard at that :)

Dragon Age Legends has a legendary fantastic storyline. More than a decade ago, the respected great ruler Khedra was enchanted by a mighty demon and changed his behavior.
