When I saw there was a new game coming into the Magic multiverse, I was kinda hoping for a new collectible card game, given that's what Magic is best known for and that my current go to (The Elder Scrolls: Legends) has basically halted development and is on life support. I mean, it even has Legends in the title! But alas, Magic: Legends is not a CCG, its an online action RPG; and while that may not have been my specific hope, that doesn't mean there isn't a lot to get excited about.
Right now the trailer shows off the two announced classes, Mind Mage and Geomancer. of the five total planned for release. The trailer also covers the two announced locales, Shiv and Benalia, with more promised there as well. Magic: Legends is being developed by Cryptic Studios, the folks behind Champions Online: Free for All, Star Trek Online, and Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter.
The gameplay trailer is beyond the age gate below. More information about Magic: Legends can be found on the official site (https://www.playmagiclegends.com), as well as the sign up for the Beta. Magic: Legends does not have any firmly announced start dates yet, but the Beta will kick off in the "spring" and they claim the PC version will release this year and the PS4 and Xbox One versions in 2021. The game will be free-to-play so
