BioWare adds social games offshoot

EA purchases Facebook RPG specialists KlickNation.

Social RPG specialist KlickNation has been bought by EA and will be rebranded BioWare Sacramento, the publisher has announced.

Together with BioWare's existing social gaming studio in its San Francisco office, it will be known as BioWare Social.

The new sub-division will be headed up by former Klickpoint boss Mark Otero and will focus on "RPG experiences for social networks".

"KlickNation's expertise in building innovative and compelling RPGs for social platforms makes them a seamless tuck-in with the BioWare team at EA," commented BioWare co-founder Dr. Ray Muzyka.

"We share the same creative values. The new BioWare Social unit will bring BioWare and EA franchises to the growing audience of core gamers who are looking for high quality, rich gameplay experiences on social platforms."

KlickNation's CV includes Facebook games SuperHero City, Age of Champions and Six Gun Galaxy.
