A few hours ago, Perfect World Entertainment, Cryptic Studios, and Wizards of the Coast revealed Magic: The Gathering RPG, a new AAA title which just started development for PC and consoles. While the official press release for Magic: The Gathering RPG did not list the game as a MMORPG, developer Cryptic Studios’ website confirmed the project as a Free-to-Play action MMORPG.
The world’s most popular strategy card game, Magic: The Gathering transforms players into Planeswalkers, powerful mages who can travel between planes, cast spells and summon mythical creatures. Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios’ new RPG will allow fans of the game to fully immerse themselves in the rich fantasy world in which Magic: The Gathering takes place.
The upcoming game extends the licensing partnership between Perfect World Entertainment, Cryptic Studios and Wizards of the Coast – a relationship that has resulted in 15 million Neverwinter players and growing. Cryptic Studios is currently ramping up production in its Los Gatos headquarters for the development of the game. No scheduled launch date was announced, so stay tuned!
