Bossa Studios recently announced that the beta version of Merlin The Game will be available to a select few during Comic-Con, July 12-15. Visit the game’s official website for a chance to test the game out before its official release.

The full adventure will be open to the public this fall, coinciding with the start of the fifth season of “Merlin” on BBC One. Magicians-to-be and fans of Merlin can come together through this game, fighting dark forces and ensuring that good defeats evil.

Imre Jele, creator in chief at Bossa Studios, wrote in a press release:

We have carefully crafted the game to capture the very essence of the world’s most famous sorcerer. Players can explore magical lands while adventuring alongside trusty allies in the Crystal Cave, knocking out ferocious Wilddeoren rats or uniting with one of their favourite characters like Merlin or Arthur.

Bossa has previously shown great success on Facebook with the BAFTA-winning game Monstermind, where users have to defend a city from a rampaging monster.
