Dragon Age flash game on the way

Electronic Arts has revealed that it will be launching a browser-based Dragon Age spin-off, dubbed Journeys.

Electronic Arts has revealed that it will soon be launching a new Flash game based on Dragon Age: Origins, dubbed Dragon Age: Journeys.

Journeys has already been in development for one year and is being put together by EA's internal flash development team, EA 2D - who say they have "big plans" for the title.

Rather than being some poorly strung-together collection of mini-games, Journeys looks to be a pretty impressive and extensive Flash game by the sounds of it. EA 2D has already announced that the first three chapters of the game will be a full-on, singleplayer tactical RPG.

The first chapter of the game, titled The Deep Roads, will be set in the Dwarven city Orzzammar, while later chapters will expand the world and introduce new areas.

"At EA 2D it is our mission to create blockbusters for the browser; some will be original games created by our teams and some will be games within other EA franchises, such as Dragon Age Journeys," said EA 2D's Ethan Levy via an official blog post.

"The leading force behind The Deep Roads is Daniel Stradwick, creator of the excellent flash rpg series Monster’s Den. Art and animation has been created by the illustrious Adam Phillips of Bitey Castle fame. Additional programming is being done by Andrew Sega, who created the Magic the Gathering inspired flash card games Mytheria and the multiplayer Armor Wars."

Interesting, though will be be good if it's being made by EA rather than Bioware?
Also, how much?

Making a Flash RPG was my dream when i started tolearn action script some time ago. I've made some progressions when I was programing it in LINGO (Director) but to port that to flash was almost impossible... God I miss the Lingo. So easy to create things....

EA. I predict it'll cost £35.

Not necessarily, they do have Battlefield: Heroes, free-to-play with payment options to jazz up your character so you never know.

Would anybody actually pay more than a couple of quid (assuming they'd pay at all) for a flash game?

clicky clicky

the dragons age web page, with a wee video on it too, looks sweeeet. I`m presuming this`ll resemble the UI, can`t wait.

It's up, free and pretty good if a bit buggy - also I take it all back judging by one of the surveys that pops up they're hoping to charge for additional content in the future.

Will it be something similar to Runescape?
