Dragon Age Legends Facebook game is live

Now you can experience the lore of EA's successful Dragon Age franchise without spending a dime, thanks to a new Facebook game that opened up this week. It comes complete with turn-based combat, a new aesthetic design, and, of course, a unique social component.

While recruiting friends and working your way through numerous quests to build up your kingdom, you can collect items and upgrade your combatants. All the workings of an RPG are here, albeit in a scaled-down manner.

It's an opportunity for those who haven't played any of the Dragon Age titles to get a taste of what they're missing, but it's even more rewarding for those who own Dragon Age II. Completing quests in the browser-based adventure will unlock exclusive items for use in the PC and console games.

EA likes to stay on the bleeding edge of the industry, with a large and long-running collection of mobile titles and becoming one of the first major publishers to release games on iTunes. Its presence on Facebook will likely only continue to expand, with heavy-hitting series like Need for Speed, Tiger Woods PGA Tour, and Battlefield already represented on the social networking platform.

You can check out Dragon Age Legends here.

    How come everything that gives you the option to pay money is automatically a scam these days?

    Eh I got some good items and it's a good little turn based rpg. I don't know who would pay them 100 bucks for virtual money though lol.

    The moment I finish unlocking things is the moment I stop playing. I love DA for the story. This doesn't have much.

    What do you guys expect from Facebook games? IMO, it is a pretty decent game and I do enjoy unlocking the items for DA2.

    Yup, pretty much sucks. Like the unlock-able goodies, tho'....

    Facebook games suck. This is no exception. Took p[art in the beta but didn't really get to involved. It was just more of the same crap.

    That "without spending a dime part" only works if you're content playing no more than 15 minutes at a time. I participated in the closed beta for this and I was really ticked off by the way it works. If you play for more than 15 minutes you have to either wait hours (that's real time hours) before the game will let you continue, or pay ridiculous amounts of money (that's real world dollars) to continue. It's a scam, it does everything it can to reach into your pockets in the same manner as FarmVille or Mafia Wars. It is absolutely not the hardcore game it was advertised as being. It's a ploy to scam the casual gamers and the Dragon Age fanboys out of their money.

    God I hate these games you HAVE to play in order to unlock items in the game you paid good money for. The worst was AC Brotherhood. Those capes were useless!!
