Sony Online Entertainment has announced that Fortune League has opened on Facebook. Fortune League allows players to engage with Everquest II in "snackable" sessions and introduces new players to the game via the Facebook game application. The casual strategy game also gives EQ2 players the opportunity to score in-game swag for playing the Facebook game.
“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.”
Fortune League is a collaborative effort between SOE’s San Diego studio and Los Angeles-based Fastpoint Games. The social media strategy game 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.
