Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced the open beta date for the upcoming free-to-play action RPG Magic: Legends. Based on Wizards of the Coast's popular Magic: The Gathering card game, it puts a hack and slash spin to the renowned tabletop experience. On March 23, the Magic: Legends PC open beta begins for players all over the world.

The open beta will be available on Perfect World's digital gaming platform, Arc Games. The official launch on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is expected for later this year – we'll keep an eye out for the announcement.

“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,” said Stephen Ricossa, executive producer of Magic: Legends at Cryptic Studios. “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.”

Magic: Legends is going to offer 175 mana-based spells inspired by the original card game, plus 50 artifacts, 165 pieces of equipment, four planes and five regions. You must collect these spells to create different decks and take control of the battleground.
