LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – January 7, 2011 –Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) and Fastpoint Games, a developer of live, data-driven games, today announced the alpha launch of Fortune League (http://apps.facebook.com/fortuneleague/), a fully integrated Facebook game.

The introduction of Fortune League continues SOE’s tradition as an industry leader in online social gaming, bringing a new type of fully integrated MMO title to Facebook; this also marks its fifth release on the platform.

“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.

“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.”
