Magic: Legends open beta begins on PC
The open beta for Magic: The Gathering action RPG Magic: Legends is now available through Arc Games and the Epic Games Store, publisher Perfect World Entertainment and developer Cryptic Studios have announced.
During the open beta players will have access to five Planeswalker classes and five regions to explore across four planes from the Magic: The Gathering universe. Players can also customize their character with 170 pieces of equipment and create a deck using 175 mana-based spells.
Players who choose to download the beta through Arc Games will receive a free Gavony Vigilante Costume for their character, the ‘Bruiser’ skin for the Ogre Mortar creature summon, two drop boosts, and two mission boosts. While downloading through the Epic Games Store before April 6th grants a free Moorland Ranger Costume, Moorland Ranger Werewolf Summon Skin, and two drop boosts.
“This is truly a historic moment for the team here at Cryptic Studios,” Stephen Ricossa, executive producer at Cryptic Studios, added. “Magic: Legends has come such a long way since we first pitched the idea to Wizards of the Coast back in 2016. The team has spent the last few years creating an action RPG experience unlike any other, which combines the power fantasy of becoming a Planeswalker with fast-paced combat tied to strategic deckbuilding. We’re excited for players to take their first steps into the Multiverse today.”
Magic: Legends is scheduled to release later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
