Magic Legends open PC beta coming in March 2021

Ahead of a full release on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Magic Legends, a new RPG based on the popular card game, will go into an open beta on PC in March 2021, Perfect World and Cryptic today announced.

The beta begins on 23 March and will help to inform Cryptic ahead of the game’s official launch on PC, Xbox One and PS4 later in 2021.

“The new year ushers in a new era for Magic: Legends,” said Yoon Im, CEO of Perfect World Entertainment. “The chorus of gamers eager to join Magic: Legends’ beta has been both exciting and humbling to us all. We are thrilled to finally announce that both Magic and ARPG fans will get to explore the Magic: The Gathering world we’ve brought to life and ignite their Spark this Spring.”

“It’s hard to believe we’re finally opening the gates to the Multiverse to all gamers and Magic fans,” added Cryptic’s Stephen Ricossa. “Over the last year, the development team has been working non-stop to bring this legendary card game to life. We want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in our Closed Alpha tests for providing the feedback we needed to help evolve Magic: Legends into what it is today.”

The free-to-play RPG is described as a “hack ‘n cast” title, placing a player in the shoes of a Planeswalker. Players will be able to collect spells and build a deck of attacks — approximately 175, to be exact — to aid them in their progress. A video detailing deck-building is below.

Magic Legends will release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2021.
