Last week EA and Hasbro announced SCRABBLE on the Facebook Platform was in an invite-only Beta... today SCRABBLE launches into an open Beta available to all Facebook users in the U.S. and Canada. It is the first EA Hasbro-licensed property to go live on a social networking site, with many more Hasbro game properties in development and slated to launch on social networking sites later this year.
This is the latest version of EA SCRABBLE games to launch. Last week SCRABBLE launched on the Apple App store for the iPhone and iPod touch. EA SCRABBLE games also currently are available on Pogo.com, mobile phones and the iPod in the US and Canada.
The SCRABBLE application built on Facebook platform provides an intuitive interface that allows head-to-head challenges with family, friends or anyone accessing Facebook from within the US or Canada. Players can choose to play a real-time turn-based game or pause and pick up to resume playing at their leisure. With easy tracking of scores and statistics, players will always know where they rank against competitors.
While playing SCRABBLE on Facebook, gamers can enjoy built in chat and dynamic animations. They can also get help from extensive word lists and choose one of the several flexible speed levels to customize their level of difficulty.
