The Agency finally launches! ... on Facebook

Nearly three years after being announced and nearly a full calendar year of radio silence, Sony action MMO The Agency has re-emerged! There are maybe a few slight cosmetic differences – like: now it's free, on Facebook and has no actual action – but otherwise, it's exactly the game we expected lo these many years.

Alright, alright, so The Agency: Covert Ops isn't the same game, though it is related to that long-in-development property. This new iteration is definitely better looking and sounding than most games on Facebook, though the grindy, challenge-free game designs seems -- from our limited experience -- pretty darn similar to a lot of social web games.

However, unlike its big brother, it managed to actually be released, so that's something, right?
