Tonight at The Game Awards, an MMO from the Neverwinter creators was announced: Magic: Legends set in the world of Magic: The Gathering. Described as a MMO action-rpg, we can expect to to deviate at least a bit from the MMO formula we are all familiar with. Soon you’ll have the opportunity to explore the various planes across the Magic world.
Legends will see you take on the role of a Planeswalker, meaning you’ll have plenty to explore of Magic’s world. Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa had this to say about developer Cryptic Studios in a press release:
Cryptic Studios is known for making games based on franchises we love and this is no exception. We’ve assembled a team of talented developers who are incredibly passionate about Magic: The Gathering and share a collective deep knowledge of the franchise. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the multiverse to life in a way that fans have never experienced before.
Not much more is known about the game yet, but you can get online and sign up for the beta now here. So, stay tuned for more information to come out soon.
