Still not up—apparently, even browser games get pushed back. According to the Bioware forums it should be up later tonight.

*Edit* And it's up.

Huh, so they sent out the "now live" PR before it actually went live? A bit silly.

Yeah, seems like a bit of fun.

I'm not crazy about all these in-game items. By the time some people get all their preorder bonuses, BioWare Social Network ring and in-game rewards from Journeys, they'll need to buy a pack mule to haul it all.
