EverQuest® II fans, your kingdom has just expanded. Sony Online Entertainment and Fastpoint Games recently announced the launch of their newest game that will change the way you play EQII. Fortune League (http://apps.facebook.com/fortuneleague/), a fully integrated Facebook game, allows EQII fans and players to play a casual game through Facebook that players can enjoy and earn rewards for use inside of EQII.
“Fortune League invites players to experience a casual strategy game on Facebook based on the world of EverQuest II while offering the opportunity to reap in-game rewards,” said Dave Georgeson, producer of EverQuest II. “It’s a great way for Facebook users to play a casual game with exciting quests, and even provides the ability to share achievements with their Facebook friends.”
This recent collaboration between Sony Online Entertainment and Fastpoint games offers more game options and fun for EQII players. It brings players the lore and adventure of EQII in real time by integrating performance data such as damages, deaths and healings directly from the MMO environment and utilizes it to form Hero Stats. Fortune League also rewards players’ abilities to assess quests, hero performance, situational threats and other players’ actions in a live trade market and compensates leaders with points, cosmetic upgrades and prizes that can be used in the free-to-play and subscription versions of EQII.
“Sony Online Entertainment is ahead of the curve with the introduction of their premiere EverQuest II franchise to Facebook users,” said Kelly Perdew, CEO of Fastpoint Games. “We worked closely with the SOE team to complement their popular MMO title in a unique, brand-relevant way onto the Facebook platform. Fortune League aims to provide existing players with a fun, new way of engaging with the depth and adventure of EQII, in short, snackable sessions, while also introducing new players and creating a new revenue source for the franchise.”
