Facebook has become a popular way for video game developers to get the word out about their games.

The popular social networking site has even provided a home to a number of game apps and game spin-offs. BioWare recently announced that it will be expanding its popular Dragon Age saga to Facebook with Dragon Age Legends, a free Facebook game inspired by the Dragon Age franchise.

style="font-style: italic;">BioWare takes its popular Dragon Age series to Facebook.

Dragon Age Legends is designed for social and casual play, but it also offers players a chance to earn some exclusive unlockable content for the upcoming RPG, Dragon Age II. Dragon Age Legends is scheduled to launch in February 2011 and will give players a chance to experience the Free Marches, the primary setting for the upcoming Dragon Age II.

“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.”
