The Merlin Facebook  Game will take place in the same universe as the TV show (even featuring the same original music), and players will be able to quest as their own knight or magician until they’re strong enough to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the likes of Merlin and Arthur. The game will allow players a large degree of flexibility when creating characters, so if you’re not entirely sold on the rigid melee playstyle of the knight you can mix and match it with spells from the magician.

Bossa Studios has been working with the creators of the show to make sure that everything is authentic, as Imre explained, “We wanted to make a game driven by story in a fantasy setting, and centring it around Merlin made sense; it’s an amazing brand worldwide because everyone knows it.
