The New Console Age and Black Friday Age are dead, let the Dragon Age begin; Heroes of Dragon Age, a free-to-play strategy game developed and published by EA, is now available on the Google Play and iTunes stores.

Heroes of Dragon Age combines elements from strategy games, collectible card games and traditional RPGs by having players earn - or purchase - a collection of heroes with varying stats, which they then mix and match before heading into combat with them. The characters are rendered as 3D models arranged in lines across the battlefield, and the fights themselves play out automatically.

The next proper installment in the Dragon Age franchise, Dragon Age: Inquisition, isn't due until fall of 2014, so you've got plenty of time to start collecting. No need to be dragon your feet, huh? Huh?
