Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios today announced that Magic: Legends will enter PC Open Beta on March 23, 2021. Players will soon experience the thrill of becoming a Planeswalker in the Free-to-Play, persistent world, action RPG based on Wizards of the Coast’s iconic strategy card game, Magic: The Gathering.
Over the last year, the team at Cryptic Studios has been working closely with Closed Alpha testers to ensure that the game’s signature spell-slinging combat feels powerful and that the Multiverse stays true to that of the original card game.
Starting on March 23, millions of players from around the world will be able to explore the Magic Multiverse, as Magic: Legends begins Open Beta on Arc Games. The game will officially launch on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.
Fans of Magic: The Gathering can attest to the fact that spell casting is the heart and soul of the game, and Magic: Legends is no different. At launch, the ARPG will offer 175 mana-based spells inspired by the original card game, plus 50 artifacts, 165 pieces of equipment, four planes and five regions.
Players will explore diverse planes in the MTG multiverse to collect these spells and strategically construct and pilot different decks to use on different battlefields. Planeswalkers can also collect various artifacts and spell pages to modify and upgrade spells and their effects. Following ample feedback from Closed Alpha testers, Magic: Legends is also implementing an equipment system to capstone powerful, player-built loadouts. For more info, visit PlayMagicLegends.com.
