Free-to-play Heroes of Dragon Age coming to mobile (update)

New, 7 comments

The next Dragon Age game from publisher Electronic Arts is a free-to-play mobile spinoff called Heroes of Dragon Age, reports Eurogamer.

Heroes of Dragon Age is in development at EA Capital Games, formerly known as BioWare Sacramento, according to an official announcement of the game cited by Eurogamer.

Players will put together squads of heroes and monsters that "span Dragon Age lore" from packs of characters that can likely be earned within the game or purchased through microtransactions. The publisher describes Heroes of Dragon Age as a cross-platform mobile game, so it will presumably be available on iOS and Android.

EA's most recent Dragon Age spinoff was the free-to-play Facebook game Dragon Age Legends, a strategy RPG developed by the now-defunct BioWare San Francisco, which EA released in 2011 and took offline in June 2012.

We've reached out to EA for more details, and will update this article with any information we receive. You can check out the first images of Heroes of Dragon Age above.

Update: We've received the official Heroes of Dragon Age press release from EA, in which the company announces the mobile title as a "squad-based combat game with addictive hero collection and engaging quests." It appears to be a game based on digital trading cards, akin to Blizzard's upcoming Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

According to EA, Heroes of Dragon Age will be released this fall on iOS and Android. You can check out the first four screenshots in the gallery below.
