Magic Legends game release date and guides

Magic Legends is the new action MMORPG based on the Magic: The Gathering franchise. Initially announced as a free-to-play MMORPG in 2017, the full reveal took place by late 2019 and early 2020, when Cryptic Studios revealed the official name and the first Magic Legends gameplay trailer. The business model remains the same, with the Magic Legends download being free and monetization coming from the in-game cash shop.

Contrary to expectations, the Magic Legends MMO doesn't take an approach similar to the studio's previous games, including Neverwinter and Star Trek Online. The top-down perspective and frantic combat takes inspiration from action RPGs such as Diablo, Path of Exile, and Lost Ark. This design choice wasn't met with consensus from players who were expecting a gameplay style that was closer to World of Warcraft than it is to an hack and slash game.

There are five Magic Legends classes to choose from initially, with the first two revealed being the Mind Mage and the Geomancer. You can play solo or venture into the various planes with the company of a couple of Planeswalkers. The three-player parties will allow for on-the-fly class switching, providing an interesting tactical depth to the action combat.

The Magic Legends spells are chosen from a large pool, with a deck of 12 cards being used in combat. However, these spells are drawn at random, with four active cards available at all times. You can upgrade the spells with spell fragments, making them more powerful and ultimately contributing to your power. Your goal is to save the Multiverse, but also to become the strongest Planeswalker, as Magic Legends PvP will put your skills to the test.

According to publisher Perfect World Entertainment, the Magic Legends release date is set for 2020 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The Magic Legends download size at launch and the system requirements are yet to be revealed.
