Publisher Perfect World Entertainment and developer Cryptic Studios reveal more about the upcoming MMO action-RPG based on the iconic strategy card game, Magic: The Gathering, including sharing two more classes.
Magic: Legends Reveals New Games Details Plus Two New Classes
Magic: Legends is an upcoming free to play title stemming from the Magic: The Gathering universe. Today, Cryptic studios has revealed two new classes and some further details about the title. Beta testing will take place in Spring 2020 where those who take part can test out two new Planeswalkers, Geomancer and Mind Mage. If you want to join in on the beta, sign ups are on their official website.
Magic Legends sets to be a fast-paced combat action-RPG with an ancient force that moves in the darkness, this encroaching threat is ever-growing in the multiverse. Players will undergo the experience of becoming a Planeswalker, as they grow their power using mana-based spells and using strategy to build a balanced hand of attacks to wreak havoc on the battlefield. While exploring the world, players will also play alongside characters from Magic: The Gathering including legendary creatures from the original card game.
Official features are listed below:
Become a Planeswalker – Players can choose from five diverse classes and switch between different Planeswalkers at any time.
Walk Your Own Path – Players will need to cross various planes to save the multiverse, but how they weave their path is up to them.
Control the Chaos – Control the chaos in real-time combat. Choosing what spells go into each hand requires strategy, as they will be drawn at random during attacks.
Collect and Upgrade – Players will discover a myriad of spells and collect spell fragments to make them more powerful.
Fight Together – The planes in Magic: Legends can be traversed alone or with up to two other Planeswalkers.
Play as one of the two classes during the beta:
The Geomancer draws upon the power of the Earth to pummel enemies in close quarters with devastating stone and lava attacks. They are capable of absorbing blows that would otherwise incapacitate other Planeswalkers with their rock shield. Geomancers prefer to call upon creatures like goblins, kavu and earth elementals.
The Mind Mage personifies cool intellect. As a Planeswalker that focuses on psychic powers, they can battle enemies from a safe distance, controlling projectiles with telekinetic powers, and lock down dangerous foes with spells that put them to sleep, or turn them against their allies.
Magic: Legends will be released on PC in 2020, Xbox One and Playstation 4 in 2021.
