Gen Con 2011 – D&D Comes to Facebook on August 15th

Bookmark and Share

Wizards of the Coast is getting into Facebook games, with one based off of Dungeons & Dragons.  The game will be released in beta on August 15th allows you to perform dungeon crawls and use your friend’s characters, allowing them to gain experience.  After you reach level 10, you’ll also be able to create your own dungeons for others to quest in.  Expect the usual micro-transactions that are popular with those types of games.

Check out the video below for what the game looks like.

Having had the chance to get some hands on time at Gen Con, the game looks pretty solid allowing a wide variety of characters and much of what you’d expect for D&D.  The dungeon building particularly sounds very interesting and a great use of social marketing, word of mouth and online interaction.
