Magic: The Gathering becomes an MMO – trailer and details here

Magic: Legends is an upcoming MMO based on the Magic: The Gathering universe

Good news, Magic: The Gathering and MMO games fans – the devs behind Neverwinter have unveiled what might be just the game for you – a Magic: The Gathering MMO called Magic: Legends. Cryptic Studios and Perfect World revealed the first cinematic trailer for the upcoming game at The Game Awards 2019 – and sign ups for the beta are now live.

While the game was announced back in 2017 as a “new free-to-play, action MMORPG based on Magic: The Gathering” by Neverwinter Cryptic Studios, this is the first opportunity we’ve had to get proper look at it with the trailer.

Details on the plot and gameplay aren’t clear just yet, but the studios have provided a description giving us an idea of what’s in store: “A thrilling MMO action RPG set across the iconic planes of Magic: The Gathering,” Magic: Legends will see you “become immersed in the acclaimed fictional Magic multiverse as a powerful, spell-wielding Planeswalker.”
