Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015 gets a bit metal

Magic 2015 trailer

It must be rather challenging to create a trailer for a digital card game. Wizards of the Coast have had a go, anyway, putting together a video for Magic 2015. 

Wizards decided to go down the heavy metal route, and that’s probably not a bad idea given the genre’s magical proclivities

Magic 2015’s chucking in a bunch of new features like a custom decks, new booster packs with premium DLC and a new deck builder that Wizards is touting as “robust”.

Our Jules took a look at it a month ago and reckons it’s the best in the series and a middle ground between Hearthstone and Hex.

“All these separate parts work together to put Planeswalker in an interesting place. On the one side is Hearthstone, a comparatively simple card game but with Blizzard’s attention to accessibility, and on the other is the endearing, genius mess that is Hex – a complex card game which is tied to an MMO campaign, guild system, and auction house. Planeswalkers 2015 is a middle ground. It has the polish of Hearthstone and the tactical satisfaction of Hex.”
