Publisher EA has announced Dragon Age Legends, a brand new instalment in the successful RPG series that will be released exclusively through Facebook.
The free-to-play title has been “custom-designed for the casual and social play style for Facebook users of all ages” and will offer online co-op gaming.
In addition, playing the game will offer exclusive unlocks in the upcoming PC and console release Dragon Age 2.
“We are privileged to be working with BioWare to bring the Dragon Age universe to the hundreds of millions of gamers on Facebook,” said EA 2D’s general manager Mark Spenner explained.
“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.”
Dragon Age Legends is due for release in February 2011.
The news follows the announcement yesterday of a five-year deal between EA and Facebook.
